As we turn the page on another year and look forward to new beginnings, the prevalent questions in the field of interior design are: What’s new? What’s next? What are the hot trends? Throughout January I will share with you what I am seeing as the 5 top trends for 2016. The first trend on my list is Warm Metal Finishes! The re-emergence of warmer, gold based tones has been making a come-back. These are different than the bright, shiny, brassy golds of the ’80’s. Warmer, softer finishes that are antiqued or have copper undertones are appearing in everything from light fixtures to hardware accents on casegood pieces (including tables, chests and dressers). Stay tuned for more of the design trends for 2016 – I’ll have four more for you during the month of January ( trend #2, trend #3, trend #4and trend #5 are all available now). In the meantime, love where you live!
