Interior design trends are always changing. Fortunately, these changes tend to follow a predictable pattern so while it’s impossible to know exactly what the future will bring, there are certain trends that are pretty safe bets. Here are a few you might want to try this winter.
White is considered the mother of all colors, and it is, literally. White consists of all the colors on the visible spectrum. As a result, it goes with everything and never clashes so it’s the easiest color to work with along with black. Because it’s easy to work with. It’s a timeless interior design idea that will always look great even when it isn’t currently trending. We like the color white because it’s calming-maybe the election year is what’s making all-white design popular again.
There are countless ways to incorporate white into your interior design. For instance, you can cover up old baseboard heaters with white snap-on baseboard heater covers. The danger with white is that it can look sterile and cold so it’s a good idea to make use of varying shades of white. Mixing white with warm accents like wood or bronze also helps to balance out all that white.
The year 2016 is bringing man caves out of the basement. Man caves don’t have to be juvenile shrines to video games and sports teams either. They can be very sophisticated spaces in the home. It’s more of a throwback to what man caves used to be. They’re dark and brooding and make use of lots of leather. Colors like charcoal or navy blue are ideal.
Swirling, organic patterns are definitely in right now. Of course marble is the most sophisticated-and expensive-way to incorporate this pattern into your home design but there are more affordable options as well. It’s not so much about the materials used but the look that’s achieved. Be inspired by geography and topography to get that organic, swirling look.
A little metallic incorporated into your home’s design can go a long ways towards making it more sophisticated. Feel free to use varying types of metal in one space but as a general rule, avoid mixing cool metals with warmer ones. Gold, brass, and copper are warmer metals while chrome, silver, and nickel are cooler. You can also mix finishes as well.
