Today I’m wrapping up my January series on the Hot Interior Design Trends for 2016. If you missed any of the previous hot trends, please visit my Allison’s Design File Blog or visit the links at the bottom of today’s post.
Trend #5 is the use of Natural Elements!
The trend of incorporating nature-inspired pieces into our interior environments is not new but rather a strong trend that continues. Driftwood like finishes on tables, mirror frames or lamp bases is just one example. Fish, bird, botanical and branch motifs in textiles and accessory pieces are very prevalent. This is an indication of our continuing desire to bring the outdoors in. The used of reclaimed or recycled materials also speaks to a desire to be more environmentally respectful.
The most important thing to remember when considering the introduction of any interior design trend into your home’s décor is to do what feels right to you. Just because pastels are a strong design trend, does not make them right for everyone. As with fashion trends, just because “skinny jeans” are in, they are not a good choice for all. Follow your heart, have fun and explore some new ways to freshen up your home!
Love where you live!
