2016 Interior Design Trends

I was recently asked by a local design magazine to contribute to an article on the 2016 design trends. As I am thinking about the latest in design, I thought it was a good time to share what I see happening for 2016.
– The mix of rustic and modern continues to grow in popularity especially among young urban families. For example, a feature wall of reclaimed wood combined in a space with sleek modern elements is oh so fabulous.
– Statement lighting is all the rage. Oversized, rustic Pendent lighting, artisan chandeliers, if it is unique and/or up cycled it is trending.
– Fabric designers are very influenced by global styles and colors. Bright natural weaves are very popular. But even if your tastes lean to more conservative fabric choices, these fabrics are taking on a more modern vibe with more texture to create greater interest.
– Add “bling” to your space! Mixing metals is so “in” right now – whether it’s gold, Platinum or copper layer in a metal based accent table or two to your space.
These trends are a modern take on what was once known as “eclectic style”, so whatever changes you plan to make in the New Year have fun and mix it up! Happy New Year 2016!
