Geometric prints are on trend for 2016 and can be found in all categories of home décor—in both neutrals and bright colors. This is a trend you can easily incorporate into your existing space; simply buy a decorative geometric object for your tabletop, a geometric lamp or printed lampshade for your existing lamp, or add some geometric wallpaper and geometric-shaped furniture like a coffee table or side tables. I especially love these products:
Avizza Table Lamp by Pacific Coast Lighting
Ebony by Andrew Four-Piece Framed Graphic Art Set by Paragon
Trigg Wall Vessel Large by Umbra. NOTE: Use anywhere around your home as a planter, or for storage of supplies and knickknacks.
Dashiell Two Piece Sculpture Set by Vertuu Design Inc.
Harmon Small Accessory and Harmon Large Accessory by Arteriors. NOTE: These look great in a bookcase, sitting on top of a stack of books or caging an orchid.
SING THE BLUES
Blue is trending in a big way! And not just one shade of blue, either—everything from navy to one of Pantone’s color of the year: serenity. Blue can act as a neutral or as a bold statement hue. Navy has become a standard option for many upholstery manufacturers; the classic color schemes of blue and white or blue and yellow are back in a big way, too. Another option is to use many shades of blue to create an ocean of color. Scandinavian style uses dusty rose, frosty gray, soft blue/gray with untreated woods and mid-century furniture.
GLAM IT UP
Luxury and glamour go hand in hand. Expect to see wallpaper with metallic backgrounds or a pearlescent finish, lighting with lots of crystals, wood furniture with mirrored or gilded finishes, and sofas and other upholstery with deep acrylic button tufting, nailhead trims and velvet fabrics—all done with a feminine flair and some floral thrown in. Women all over the U.S. are embracing their femininity and making their homes reflect it!
