Even though we’re barely three months into 2015, interior design and home furnishing trends are already being forecasted for next year. Earlier today, the Pantone Color Institute unveiled the colour trends 2016 for home furnishings and interior design. And Best Design Projects is going to show everything about it. Take a look!
Dark & Light:One of the key trends for 2016 is the importance of darkness. The introduction of Earth Hour — where millions of people around the globe all turn their lights off on the same day, has highlighted how much light pollution effects us all.
Research has proven how important it is that we have a restful sleep, to recharge and regroup without the disrupting influence of light. It’s not only about humans: research shows that light pollution can also effect the nighttime biological activity of plants and wildlife.
Words & Pictures: We live in an age of visual saturation, where our every moment is recorded and posted on social media. As a result, we see quantity over quality, with imagery becoming devalued through its overuse.
The old phrase ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ has now almost become reversed, since words — whether spoken or written — are forever being squeezed in our fast-paced lives. They are restricted and shortened on social media, while we increasingly communicate using pictures alone.
Bio Fragility: inspired by natural and living matter — flesh tones, lichen, moss and stone influence the subtle hues of the palette which are derived from chalky brittle elements rather than soft textures.
Future Past takes its cues from steampunk merging with modern design — creating a new version of the old. Deep and decadent traditional hues are made modern with the addition of mustard, pink and purple.
Minimalism has no place here — rooms are filled with heirlooms and new collections that create a look that is luxurious and detailed; craftsmanship is valued with an eclectic edge influenced by the industrial age.
