Interior Design Trends for 2016 continue to effect our environment in a calming and simplistic way.

The natural elements of wood, stone and steal will gain in strength this year. Interior Design Trends for 2016 will also bring us subtle pastel colored kitchens, the personalization of our spaces through fun fabrics, wall treatments and  wall embellishments.

[dropcap1]4[/dropcap1] Minimalism

Organization of our things to provide a space for everything – most of which is out of site- will be a strong influence in our homes. This minimal trend helps us feel more in control in our own world as the rest of the world seems out of control.

The world is a crazy place, to counter the insanity we will see more minimal themes emerge. This helps our homes become more sanctuary-like.

How to Get the New Minimalist Look in Your Home

 

[dropcap1]5[/dropcap1] Kitchen Design: Pastels, natural shapes and minimalism.

Interior Design Trends for 2016 will continue from the 2015 trend of open spaces, especially involving the kitchen and family rooms.

You will see organization and uncluttered counters being a key factor when redesigning or remodeling a kitchen.  Everything will have a place.

Formal dining rooms are being replaced by a casual eating area at the island and a large less formal table for larger groups.

 

2016 sees the kitchen remain strong as the focus and heart of the home. Open plan flooring will remain popular as well as its ability to operate as a multi-purpose space for friends and family.
