New year, new set of trends! Every year we get extremely excited to see what decor trends may have stuck around and which ones are completely fresh and new. In 2015 we saw a ton of blue, bold and modern geometrics, decor with an industrial chic edge and of course glistening metallics. So what’s in store for the coming year? We thought you would never ask! Come and explore with us the top trends we are just head over heels for in 2016. From blush pinks to beautiful embellishments, we’re pretty sure we won’t want 2016 to ever end.

1. Think PINK!

Who doesn’t love pink? Ok so maybe not everyone, but the pink that is making it to the top charts this year is a beautiful soft pink that is effortlessly charming. From pastel pink walls to just a pop of pink, this sweet hue is not one to be missed.

2. Bold Botanicals

Nature has always been a focus in decor but in 2016 it takes a bigger and bolder look. Larger than life florals, birds, trees and leaves help your home keep that eco-chic vibe while also playing with texture and size. Textiles to walls, this trend can be seen from top to bottom and everywhere in between.

3. Yes, Wallpaper!

We saw wallpaper take a huge leap last year and it is still going strong! This year we see natural surfaces take flight such as faux woods, brick and stone as well as retro style geometrics, metallics and wallpaper done in more soft and subtle hues. Also trending for the new year, wallpaper in the kitchen!

4. Deep Blues

The color blue might have been the star of 2015 but we are still continuing to watch it gain momentum. In 2016 expect to see a lot more indigo as well as pairings of blue and white. Coating textiles such as curtains, rugs and pillows to dinnerware and furniture, this fabulous trend is especially easy to incorporate into your own home.

5. Reclaimed & Repurposed

We’ve been seeing the appreciation for vintage materials and goods gradually increase throughout the years and 2016 is no different. From tiles that look to have been aged over time to wood planks chipped with paint, these imperfect textures and finishes are bigger than ever.

6. Glistening Gold

The color gold can truly transform a room. That’s why we weren’t surprised to see it among the top home decor trends once again. Coupled with other warm metallics such as copper and nickel, these glistening hues are definitely sticking around.

7. Welcoming Words

We’re no longer just seeing sweet sentiments such as love and home sweet home on doormats or signs that welcome you inside but we are seeing them all throughout the home. From words on the wall to bedspreads and pillows that speak happiness, 2016 is the year where our hopes, dreams, thoughts and more adorn all of our decor.

8. Chinoiserie Chic

Also making a splash in 2016, beautiful chinoiserie prints! With an Asian influence, these cultured designs feature graceful florals, harmonious toiles and elegant nature scenes that add an exotic touch to walls and textiles alike.

9. Fine Embellishments

Last but not least we love all the embellished finishes that are adorning linens, wall coverings, cushions, throws and more. Beautiful beading, luxe flock detailing and fabulous fringe are a few of our favorites.

Oh So Faux

We recently stayed in a very hip hotel in NYC hotel where all of the halls were wrapped in a rich espresso brown ostrich skin. Of course, this chic and luxurious look was not accomplished with real ostrich skin, that would have been an atrocity! The design was done with a faux effect wallpaper, one that authentically created the organic beauty of an exotic leather with PETA approved tactics. Achieving a faux effect with wallpaper is often much easier and less costly way to get the decor look you desire, without sacrificing any of the texture, color or architectural impact. Having walls wrapped in leather – even rare animal skins like crocodile or snake skin is very modern and striking. Revamping walls with a completely new material, like tile, rustic wood, stones or brick can also be achieved well with wallpaper. With rich textured embosses, lavish printing techniques and artistic ink finishes, an exceptional wallpaper can create a completely new identity for your walls. Wallpaper is the fabric of your homes outfit, and it is not limited to patterns like flowers, stripes and damasks. These faux wallpapers are easy to install and oh-so-chic.

Tiles are a beautiful way to add texture, color and patterned intrigue to a space. Especially popular in kitchen and bathroom decor, a tiled finish can increase the value and appeal of a home. However, tiling your walls can be a very expensive and labor intensive process. These tile wallpaper designs can genuinely replicate the look and feel of actual tiles, sea glass, porcelain, mosaic tiles, or terra cotta.
