Some of the hottest interior design ideas for 2016 include retro, mix-and-match, and originality. This means that there is something for everyone in the family. Living rooms take on a fresh new look, all the while never sacrificing comfort.
- Bring Outdoor Textiles Inside
Colourful fabrics like burlap and canvas will spice up the inside of homes in 2016. A major reason for welcoming outdoor fabrics into the interior is their inherent quality, designed to help weather the elements. They are more durable, yet softer than ever. Patterns, solids, and artistic use of colours help create a variety of décor for the kitchen, dining room and living room. The choices are ideal for pets and kids. Living rooms are friendlier, with easy-to-clean fabrics that hide dust, dirt, and spills. Furniture also undergoes a transformation, as a multitude of small pieces (like chairs and loveseats) replace the traditional sectional + armchair layout. This new approach to furniture is ideal for get-togethers with family and friends. Cleverly designed circular hassocks have lids that lift off, which also makes them ideal for storing magazines, toys, and even the remote until they’re needed.
- Avant Garde Wall Coverings
Today’s interior design embraces splashy, exotic colours and textures. Custom graphics and favorite prints cover the walls with silhouettes and geometric motifs. Diamonds, squares, dots, and rectangles are examples. Multiple shapes with clashing colours like lime and scarlet create a vibrant harmony to any room, and serve as an immediate talking point with guests.
- Casual Family Rooms
The family room remains a gathering spot in 2016, with the television becoming replaced by iPads, Smartphones, and laptop computers. Video game consoles remain a popular method of family bonding, resulting in a designated space with casual seating for gamers. Cozy chairs and beanbags attract readers, while loveseats and decorative mats offer the chance to relax and chat with one another.
- Transitional Redefined
The combination of traditional and contemporary finishes shift to an eclectic display of home interior design for 2016. Rather than the classic “everything should match” approach of yesteryear, the materials of 2016 are a colourful mélange of furniture, wall coverings, and accents. Guests may sit down to dinner in mismatched chairs at a rustic wooden table set with elegant china, and mason jars serving as drinking glasses. It’s an opportunity to bring out conversation pieces that have been in the family for years. Use ceramics of any size, shape, and colour as accents, bowls, and vases. Pendant lanterns are back in style and preside over dining room and game tables.
- Medley of Metallics
Add fun, frivolity, and elegance with this year’s inclination to mix colourful metals. Stainless steel, rose gold, and patina bronze deliver a sophisticated, glamorous look to any space in the home. Glass fills the frames of brass, wrought iron, or copper lamps and lanterns. Drawdown chains and a single bulb for soft light over a desk are one method of hanging a lamp. Chain link holds copper lanterns hanging in corners. Metal candle holders with small LED bulbs add an artistic style to the area. Copper and gold bring warmth while silver and chrome add a sleek appeal. The highlight of mix and match metals complements the allure of 2016 interior design.
