From the latest in sustainable design to the hottest new patterns and prints, design in 2016 is sure to be a year we are all going to be talking about. Whether your style is contemporary, sophisticated, or minimalistic, the up and coming interior design trends are directed towards transforming your home into a beautiful space that will embody definitive style and be a joy to live in.

Interior Design Trend No. 1 - Sustainable Design

Sustainable and eco-friendly design has been a common theme over the past few years, and 2016 will be no different as we continue to become more aware of our surroundings and our impact on the environment.  Ensuring the use of energy efficient lighting, or purchasing furniture from sustainable companies such as Jardan can help in reducing your footprint.

Interior Design Trend No. 2 - Artisan Goods

Locally made and globally crafted goods will soon fill people’s homes, as artisan goods begin to become all the rage. Everything from tassels, basketry, macramé, crochet, weaving, and pottery will be very popular in 2016.              

Interior Design Trend No. 3 - Minerals and Natural Fibers

As more global and environmental awareness issues come to the forefront of our minds, we want to become aware of the beauty of nature’s minerals and the strength and sustainability of using natural fibers. Think about using natural geodes as paper weights or bookends, marble bowls, or purchasing a beautiful rug from Armadillo & Co

Interior Design Trend No. 4 - Geometric Tiles

Decorative tiles have been a constant trend for a long time now, and it will continue in 2016. Designers are expecting to see more people move towards more geometric patterns that feature flowing movement. Cement and even timber are going to play a large role in achieving this.

Interior Design Trend No. 5 - Rich Jewel Colours

In Milan this spring, there was a notable shift towards more brilliant tones and regal shades of burgundy, gold, and green. Jewel tones have been seen in fashion for a while now, and now are emerging quiet strongly within interior spaces. These colours, when used with restraint, look beautiful with a neutral palette and work well with another 2016 trend - texture.

Interior Design Trend No. 6 - Metals and Metallics

Hello Mid Century Modern. Popular between the 1950s and 1970s, Mid Century Modern is a hot trend in fashion design collections right now, and it is no different in interiors. Brass, gold and metallic finishes are popular right now, so get ready to embrace some retro bling.

Interior Design Trend No. 9 - French Provincial

Scandinavian design has held a popular position in interior design trends over the past few years, but 2016 will see a rise in the understated luxury that is french provincial designs. Think oversized mirrors, rich timber floors, upholstered furniture, and luxurious fabrics such as velvet.
