Our Favorite Decorating Trends of 2016

Following a year as fun and stylish as 2015 can be hard to do. As we progress further into the social media era, interior design is creating a monumental name for itself. No longer is it just for designers, but for all creative minds looking to have a beautiful home.

Now anyone can look on Instagram, Pinterest, or any other social media site and be inspired by thousands of pictures of stunning interiors.

While many trends from the past can flow into the future, and with already so much talk of the many trends we will see, we think it’s important to note our favorite decorating trends of 2016.

Decorating Trends #1: Outdoor Fabric Used Indoors

Outdoor fabric simply makes your home livable. Whether you have children or pets-outdoor fabric is more durable, highly cleanable, and won’t pill or lighten with sun damage like typical indoor fabrics. With this trend growing more each year, textile companies have worked hard to make their outdoor collections just as decadent as their indoor collections. Most of the time, just from looking at the fabric, we can’t even tell the difference! Some of our favorites include Perennials Fabric, Osborne & Little Sea Breeze Collection, and Pindler.

Decorating Trends #2: Formal Dining Rooms

It’s hard to believe, but for years the focus has gone away from the formal dining room and settled on the cozy kitchen nook or the beautiful breakfast bar. We couldn’t be more thrilled to see the most social area in the house make it’s way back up the list; the formal dining room. Dining rooms aren’t only for hosting Thanksgiving dinner, but can be a great place to entertain on the weekends or even get the busy family together for a meals. The dining room can set the precedent to enjoy the company of others over a meal and create lasting memories.

Decorating Trends #3: Statement Bathroom Mirrors

A mirror can do so much for a room. Not only can it expand the angles to ultimately make a room look bigger, but also, it’s the focal point. A mirror is where eyes are drawn. Whether a statement mirror is over sized, has ornate detailing, or a fun color, it will steal attention. Having a statement mirror in the bathroom can not only transform the space,but can be pleasing and relaxing to the eye.

Decorating Trends #4: Heated Entryway Floors

Anyone who lives in a remotely cold area can appreciate and fall absolutely in love with this concept. Typically, an entry way is where shoes are removed, coats are hung up, and you walk into your first wave of warmth after enduring the cold air outside. I know we can’t imagine a better welcome home than feeling a toasty floor beneath our feet.

Decorating Trends #5: Nude-Pink

We don’t think it’s a coincidence that Pantone gave Rose Quartz the title, Color of theYear, and that we’re starting to see the same color pop up everywhere- not
just on walls. Nude-Pink is simply a hue that makes everyone and everything look great. It’s not too bold, but it’s also not just white or cream. It gives you that pop, while offering serenity and relaxation.
