Interior Design Trends for 2016

Interior design is an ever-changing and constantly evolving industry. As lifestyles change, homes and offices grow in size or scale down to meet the needs of every individual – often leading to a need for a makeover.

The beauty of interior design is that the process and final product is intended to fit each space and each individual’s preferences on aesthetics and functionality. You can style a space with appropriate design features that highlight the room, make each spot purposeful, and – of course – look amazing.

With interior design, one year you might find a particular color palette to be in high demand, while in others it is all about fabrics and textures or accent furniture pieces. Each year, you can expect there to be newer, more useful and beautiful design elements to be at the forefront of the interior design industry. As we head into 2016, let’s take a look at some of the upcoming interior design trends for the new year.

Fabric Wall Art

Silks and damasks are trending as a wall feature, says House Beautiful. You can hang swaths of fabric flat on the wall or frame them in elegant picture frames for a more sophisticated touch.  Leather tiles are also an excellent design statement, especially in a den or office.

“Country”-Themed Pottery

Depicted in soft white and inky blues, the charming style of Delft pottery adds a charming look to any home. With origins in 17th-century Holland, this décor option is great for decorating shelving units or china cabinets.

Arrangement of SpaceExpert Arrangement of Space

Clearing those useless objects to make way for functional decorative objects will be a goal. Minimalism is the key in many of the most common designs today, with a focus on function and purpose rather than an overabundance of items that create a cluttered look.

Accessorizing the Main Palette

Cool colors are coming back, especially for adding contrast. Boasting a sense of calm and coolness, shades of green, navy and deep blue are trending for accessory objects like tables, chairs and other accentuating furniture.

Increased Vegetation

Incorporating nature and lush green plants helps to produce natural ventilation and is a popular hobby for anyone with a green thumb. Plant installations have become especially popular in bathrooms, though any area of the home or office can benefit from the addition of some greenery.

Corner StandsCorner Stands

Corner columns, pedestals and other installations are experiencing a reemergence. Whether using an elegant display piece or a simple column stand, cutting the empty space in a corner is always in!
