Trend Forecast: 5 Interior Decor Ideas to Adopt in 2016

Trend Forecast- 5 Interior Decor Ideas to Adopt in 2016

For many of us, jumping into a new year means pressing the well-awaited restart button – keeping the past where it belongs and looking to all that lies ahead. Sure, we make goals that we don’t keep, but as long as our perspectives remain bright, that’s what counts. So ring in the New Year with these five interior decor ideas that will uplift your living space, as well as all who enter:

1. Artisanal Accents

Instead of browsing big-box stores for furniture pieces and accessories that most of your neighbours probably have too, shift your focus toward one-of-a-kind finds. Take the time to visit local flea markets or craft shows and meet the artisans behind the handmade pieces that catch your eye. The backstories will captivate you.

2. Encaustic Tiles

Think of geometric tile as the new statement wallpaper. While encaustic tile (patterned tiles made with coloured clay) is nothing new, the material is making a major comeback. Often seen in European abodes, the tile lends a rustic charm that’s current and timeless.

3.  Statement Pendants

From a modern mobile fixture to a chunky cord style, pendant lights are anything but subtle this year. The striking light fixtures will add a refreshing hit of modernity and personality to your kitchen or dining room, while drawing the eye upward to give the illusion of a larger living space.

4. Scandi-inspired Design

Modern minimalism can still pack a powerful punch – which is why Scandinavian style is officially taking the design world by storm. The reason? You can’t go wrong with a neutral palette combined with contrasting accents and warm, wooden elements. The style is crisp, contemporary and full of character.

5.  Graphic Toss Cushions

Up your pillow game this year by opting for toss cushions that boast graphic patterns and prints. Punchy pillows are all it takes to bring a space to life, and you can switch them around as you please – so go ahead and be a risk taker! Tip: make sure you buy cushions with removable inserts so you can switch the covers with ease.
