Home Interior Style Watch for 2016
Could your space use a little breath of fresh air before it hits the market? Get ready to turn your home into solid SOLD with some of the latest DIY interior upgrades. After scouring Pinterest, here is our list of great ideas to help you identify your next real estate style project.
Terrariums and Succulents
Succulents look amazing in just about any type of container. From glass to tin to terracotta a terrarium can thrive in just about any container. Place one by the kitchen sink or use one as a surprise natural element in the guest bathroom. Since succulents come in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors creating one that fits your current motif is easy!
Hammered Copper & metallic accents
We love hammered copper bowls, pots, and platters to bring just a little pop! of metallic to any space. From your desk to your kitchen sink, copper accents are in-the-now. From custom hammered copper table tops to copper pitchers filled with lilies, hammered copper can be added at any price point. Allowing the natural warmth and patina of this metal to shine safely brings a touch of style to otherwise neutrally staged spaces.
We aren’t talking your mother’s-favorite-sweater pastels, we are talking pure, bright, rich pastels that bring focus to specific interior features. Consider a bright pastel aqua door set off against a pure white wall that bring focus to clean lines and a fresh aesthetic. We also love a bright pastel paint-dipped candelabra – something different, and unexpected to draw attention to the grand piano below. Some of the more adventurous homeowners we know choose to paint their home’s exterior pure pastel yellow, peach, and blue! A fantastic decorating element for lake homes and cabins.
While stain revitalizes almost any concrete surface, we don’t want you to stop at flat basement floors and kitchen countertops! 2016 interior trends encourage concrete accent tables, candle holders, wall paneling and floating stairways! The distressed look and feel of concrete can add texture to spaces that otherwise feel cold. If your design aesthetic is industrial or loft-inspired, we recommend exposed bricks and concrete farmhouse sinks.
Ferns and Fronds
While it may be obvious to place ferns, fronds, and palms in vases and call it good, we want you to push this fresh design element one step further! Consider deep blues and greens on your walls, reupholster couches and throw pillows with teal velour, and hang industrial brackets from the ceiling to support dramatic cement pots filled with exotic greenery.
From complete renovations to small accents, this list is sure to inspire you. Head to Pinterest and get out of your home décor rut for 2016! Incorporate a little or a lot, it’s your space!
