2016 Interior Design Trends
Wishing your home felt more like a summer getaway?
We have the latest trends of 2016 to make your home feel like a paradise this summer.
For 2016, tasteful eclectic is in. Mixing materials is a great way to freshen up a space and leave a memorable impression on your guests. If you like bling, metals like copper, brass, silver, & stainless steel make your rooms shine. Best of all, you can mix and match metals to bring in different colors and textures.
Light fixtures are a staple for transforming the look and feel of a room. While chandeliers are the ornate option, pendants are great statement pieces to bring light into your space.
A Little Marble
In the kitchen, marble signifies top-of-the-line, sleek, and durable tabletops. But this summer, consider taking marble out of the kitchen and into your home through small accent pieces. Bowls, clocks, candlesticks & even plates can add an elegant, but contemporary twist to your decor. It’s the little touches that will personalize your home.
What is it about blue & white pottery? This Dutch design can add its quaint signature to your country home. While Delft has other colors, the white and blue has a classic charm unlikely to go out of style anytime soon.
Design on a Pedestal
An empty corner can fill up with shadows, dust & cobwebs, or it can add dimension to your room. A pedestal stacked with a beautiful statue, sculpture or plant will show off your collection. We have a few in our gallery right now, if you are looking for inspiration.
