Favorite Design Trends of 2016

We are days away from saying goodbye to 2016. The new year is going to bring so many fresh design trends. We’re excited to see what 2017 has in store. Greenery, the Color of the Year, is going to rejuvenate the design world. Mixed patterns and faux finishes are also on the rise. Although the excitement is growing for the latest fashions, 2016 brought many design trends that we just can’t part with. Which styles were your favorite? Take a look at some of the top design trends from 2016.


Incorporating Bold Colors

Rose Quartz and Serenity were both named Color of the Year 2016. The mix is soft, elegant, and inviting. We certainly saw softer callers, including neutrals, take over the design world. But, another design trend we loved was incorporating bold colors. Decorating with deep purples, bright accent walls, and bold blues were must-have design trends from this year. Pops of color add character and a unique touch to any design, giving you the opportunity to show off your personality through decor. We don’t see this going anywhere–no matter what the latest trends are, embracing your personal style is what it’s all about. 


Metallic Decor

One huge design trend of 2016 was decorating with metals. Offering an industrial look, metallic decor brings a shine into any home. The contemporary trend includes flashy silvers and bronzes, giving your rooms a contemporary, dynamic feel. This design trend is just getting started. An up-and-coming accent we’re seeing is Rose Gold. The subtle pink mixed with a gold finish creates a luxurious statement, redefining what it means to decorate with metals. Take a look here for different ways to incorporate Rose Gold


Touch of a Button Convenience

Okay, so it’s a different type of design trend, but it includes was one of the most popular features of 2016. Have you heard of home automation? Technology is becoming more and more advanced, and home integration systems are becoming must-haves. Logitech’s Harmony and The Nest are perfect examples, giving you control of your home at the touch of a button. In the world of window treatments, PowerView motorization became extremely popular. Allowing you to create a schedule based on your favorite settings, your blinds automatically adjust during the day. Talk about convenient! We can’t see what type of technological advances 2017 has for the design world.
