Portuguese tiles inspiration
We already shared on the blog just how much we love Portuguese tiles and we believe that these beautiful items will be an even greater source of inspiration this coming year. No matter if you use them in upholstery, as a way to remodel your kitchen, on your bedwear or simply as a decorative detail, Portuguese tiles will be one of the greatest interior design trends for 2016. So don’t miss this opportunity to make your home shine in blue and white.
This year, be even more creative. inspired and don’t be afraid to experiment. For example, our beautiful Tiles rug is inspired by Portuguese tiles but combines modern patterns with fresh colours, reinventing the traditional tile.
Say hello to your new home office
House Beautiful said it and we totally agree: the honeymoon period for working on your laptop in bed is officially over! A good home office should be functional yet stylish , allowing you to concentrate and be productive in a calm, comfortable environment. Be sure to invest some time and creativity in this important area of your home.
Our beautiful Around.U desk will keep you on track with the latest interior design trends. Classic and timeless, the simple lines makes it suitable for almost any home office. It is also a very versatile piece as you can choose the position of the drawers, according to your needs.
Shine like a metal
Fabulous UK interior designers 2 Lovely Gays believe that the use of metals will be one of the most important interior design trends of 2016. Whether you use a single metal throughout your home, or get creative and mix them up, the goal is to add character and brightness to your home.
To add a beautiful metallic touch to your room, start with the details. Accessories such as mirrors can have gorgeous metallic frames, and our Sharp Mirror is a great example. Lamps are also very interesting as the light will accentuate the metal glow. Have you seen our Origami and Square and Cross lamps?
Cheer up the home with strong colours
We love strong colours at home, and this will be one of the major interior design trends for this year. If you are reluctant to add strong colours to your wall, start with the details such as small tables, curtains and cushions. This will help you create a more versatile decor and change colours more often, according to the season. This beautiful living room by incredible interior designer Rachel Willson says it all.
Our beautiful Pinkit table is a must if you want to gently add colour to your space. Available in six colours, you can choose the one that best suits your home or be creative and mix them up. Say hello to a multi colour home!
Innovate with geometric patterns
Geometric patterns are more than just squares and can help you to be really creative when combined with the right decor set. For example in a soft tone living room geometric patterns add a really special graphic touch, just like in the beautiful Susan Venn living room above. This is exactly why geometry is one of the major interior design trends this year.
Choose an innovative design to be the centrepiece of your room. Our beautiful Ziguezag sideboard is a must if you want to add a graphic touch to your home, without changing the walls.
Explore all shades of grey
If strong colours are not your cup of tea, we have some good news. Grey is on the list for 2016 interior design trends, in all shades and formats. The idea is that you can mix different shades to create an interesting composition in your living room. In this beautiful Rainbird Interiors living room you can see so many shades of grey that they almost look like different colours. From light to dark, be creative and enjoy!
Our Violet armchair is a beautiful example of how grey can be comfortable and cozy. Forget the idea of grey being sad – this year it will shine amongst the brightest colours!
Statement furniture for the perfect get-together
Major interior design trends reflect and highlight the best of home living. This is exactly why statement furniture pieces are a must for this year. If you love the social aspect of your home, then look for a statement design piece like a large dining table to leave a lasting impression with your guests,
