Is redecorating one your New Year’s resolutions?  With the new year, you might be looking to change things up a bit when it comes to some new home décor.  This is the perfect time to put your interior design aspirations into play.  Classic design will always be in style, trends will come and go – and some become classic.  Trying to decide which direction to go style wise, might be a bit overwhelming, so to give you some inspiration, here are a few trends we anticipate for 2016.

Minerals are in – Minerals (quartz, geodes & pyrite just to name a few) mix well with a variety of design styles and can bring any room to life.  Their shimmer adds the wow factor to interior styles from traditional to ultra contemporary.

Outdoor fabric used indoors – Outdoor fabrics can be just a exquisite as indoor drapery fabrics and upholstery.  There are a wide variety of patterns and textures to help bring the outdoors, in.  Not to mention that outdoor fabrics are fade, moisture, stain-resistant and are easy to clean.

Black stainless steel appliances – Bring a modern touch to any kitchen with the signature dark finish of black stainless steel.  Adding the black will “contemporize” (I’m not sure if I just made that word up?) your design, but still keep the classic appeal of traditional stainless.  The black also helps to resist those lovely fingerprints and smudges even better than its silver counterpart.

Minimalism – Sometimes less is more.  It’s not all about new home decor – maybe removing some items from your home is a better place to start. Start the new year off clean with minimalist designs incorporating only things you need and love.  Adopting a minimalist approach will not only bring order to your home, it will give it an organized and streamlined appeal.
