Ushering in the New Year means allotting space for change. This goes hand in hand with being ￼open to new trends and styles. This 2016, make way for these upcoming home interior trends which will ￼surely revamp your space and wow everyone.
1. Shades of pink
Give off the La Vie en rose vibes this year with shades of pink. Pink is not necessarily feminine if you complement it with different colours. Opt for bolder hues with deep green and navy blue, or go for neutral and soft tones by pairing pink shades with grey and copper.
2. Metals and marble
Metallic hues such as copper, gold and brass are popular choices due to their luxe finishes that have the ability to make your home look modern and stylish. With its shiny glaze and iridescent appeal, these beautiful metallic shades will definitely spruce up your home's outlook.
Another popular choice would be the marble finishes. Simple yet sophiscated, they are versatile and are perfect accents to any furniture.
3. Bold geometric tiles
Provide some juxtaposition against neutral pastel hues with daring decor such as bold geometric prints. Tiles with strong prints and colours have been staples in many homes and they are not going away anytime soon. Add a splash of individuality with unique Memphis designs to your decor.
Contrasting textures help to create illusions of warmth and comfort. This year, consider textured fabric such as faux fur, velvet, and suede to give your living rooms and bedrooms more depth and sophistication.
5. Functionality and minimalism
Small spaces? Fret not! Interior tends are moving towards the practical and minimal. We will definitely get to see more designs that focus on functionality instead of just appearances. With the increasing emphasis on simplicity and neutral hues, expect your home to be neater and perhaps even more spacious.
6. Sustainable and eco-friendly design
Sustainability has become an important concept in home designs. This would mean more natural and sustainable materials that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also have a minimal damage to the environment. Using elements such as wood or stone are great exmaples of achieving an eco-friendly home. Rather than getting new furniture, try to constantly recycle, reinvent and reuse items in your homes to lessen your carbon footprint.
7. Natural and earthy inspirations
Strong Scandinavian influence on interiors have been advocating its natural and clean look with their emphasis on the natural lighting and green spaces. Concrete materials such as wood and stone, potted plants and neutral colours like beige, grey and white will give your home an earthy vibe. High glass windows will also help to bring in plenty of healthy sunlight into your home. Such minimalistic interiors are not only sophisticated, but they also provide a calming presence.
