By Anita Winter ~ It’s that time again. Time to gaze into the crystal ball to see where our home decor will be heading in 2016. It seems that there are some obvious trends, but we have a few new surprises that are fabulous and very dramatic. Here are six that you can’t do without.
Blue is not going anywhere. It truly has become the new neutral in home decor. I think it’s because so many things go with blue. These deep dark sea walls (below) look stunning paired with these bright white furnishings.
Blue was the big color story this past High Point Market. It continues to grow in outdoor fabric choices as well. Look for even more shades of blue this fall and next.
People may have a hard time getting used to gold on hardware and faucets, but it’s a luxury material that looks amazing any and everywhere. The room below gives a glimpse into Art Deco with its fancy screen room dividers and ostentatious lighting above. Overall, this room is quite chic and well balanced. I don’t see a lot of gold overkill, which is a good thing.
