4 Design Trends to Watch in 2016

As 2015 comes to a close, we can’t help but pay tribute to the excitement of the interior design trends we saw over the past year. We are compiling our list of our top four design trends that we hope will continue into 2016, even as they evolve and change. From textures of cutting edge design to the nostalgia of old favorites, and from colors bold and bright, to those soft and subtle, we have loved the way interior design has allowed us to customize your homes.

Harmony

Sophisticated as much as it was calming, this vacation-esque mindset for interior design has incredible promise for design trends into the new year. Why? Taking a cue from a favorite vacation, an atmosphere of playful fun is the perfect surrounding for your home. So many of us work so hard; it’s time to take a break from the seriousness of life and just chill. We love it, and we are excited to see this evolve in the upcoming design trends. Wanting to create your own at-home oasis? We have the ideal window shades and drapery panels for beauty and function.

Florals

We saw the artistic inspiration of ginger jars this fall, and varying colors is having a dramatic effect on customizing this look. Large flowers are making a statement in any form, from custom bedding to wallpaper and beyond. Everlasting spring and summer fills the home with happiness and fulfillment–a look that is sure to continue on into the New Year. If you’re thinking of incorporating beautiful fabrics with florals, we can help. For a limited time, you can take advantage of special savings on custom labor of bedding, drapery and upholstery.

Color

color of the year 2016If there is anything 2015 will be remembered for, it’s color. The message of color was received with enormous acclaim. Whether bold and bright, or subtle and soft, bringing in shades to create atmosphere and shape the mood of a space was one of the most important parts of the design trends this year. And with Pantone’s recent announcement of dual colors for 2016, we are waiting with baited breath to see how the contrast of colors will come into design in the coming months. Loving the layered look of custom drapery panels with shades or blinds? We are offering special savings this month to deliver the perfect layers for beauty and function in your home.

Metals

We love when we can help you customize the style of your home to add that finish that you’ve always wanted. With the incorporation of glass or wood, bringing metallic decor into your space was one of the biggest design trends of 2015, and it’s not letting up. The industrial look of strong metals and rustic wood can be finalized with the invitation of exposed hardware. The sparkle of contemporary fashion brings in glistening silvers and elegant bronze finishes for the perfect way to polish off your space. We’d love to help you design the perfect look in your home–and we’ll come to you for free!
