What can we expect next year’s interior trends to be?
Bringing the Outdoors In
In 2016 consumers are expected to experiment with how to bring nature into every aspect of their homes. From buying furniture to use indoors and outdoors to wall décor and accessories inspired by plant life, homes are set to feature more than their fair share of outdoor greenery.
Mix Metallics and Metals
Brass, gold and metallic finishes will continue to be popular in 2016. Introduce these materials into your home is the form of lighting or accessories and complement with retro-styled products to establish a striking look.
Whether it is a backsplash, an intricately patterned floor or a countertop, fluid geometry is coming in strong. From tiles and furniture to accessories and soft furnishings, consumers will be looking for geometric patterns.
Make it Sustainable
Consumers will be seeking to source ethically-made products or will spend money on up-cycling current worn out or out-of-fashion furniture. Recycling, repurposing, reinventing and reusing are all things that consumers are beginning to consider.
Mixture of Colours
Pantone have stated that the next year’s dominant shades will display contrast between colour that is real and unreal. Consumers can also expect to see saturated tones that make bold statements.
