Our Top 5 Home Trends for 2016

No 1: Bringing The Outdoors In

Throughout 2015 we’ve watched Instagram bloggers and home interior magazines slowly incorporate plants and garden elements into indoor designs. In 2016, we are sure to see more  nature-inspired styles in every type of room. Blogging couple “New Darlings” exemplifies this  outdoor feel in their trendy living room. We’ve matched a similar rug from The Rug Stores to help  you transform your next room into a garden oasis! (See the available sizes of the Berber Nile Rug online.)

No 2: Texture Contrasts

Contrast of texture within home design can be simple or extravagant. The room below shows how a minimalistic colour scheme can look delicate, yet dynamic, by contrasting soft fabric with rustic features. Our soft white “Eva Opal Rug” can also be paired with rustic furniture and exposed brick to create a contrast in texture. (Purchase it online now with free delivery!) 

No 3: Moroccan Inspired Fabrics

Morocco is known for colourful interior styles, which reflect its unique and rich culture. We love that these bright, vibrant patterns are taking over the interior design world. Pair a red patterned rug with a vivid turquoise wall to create an unconventionally stunning bedroom for yourself or your guests! (See full details for the Red Royal Classic Rug here!)

No 4: Mixing Metallics and Metals

In fashion design, trends from the 1950’s to the 1970’s are regaining their popularity on the runway. Home décor during these decades often highlighted mixtures of brass, gold and other metallics. We especially love this look by Z Gallerie, which features our stunning “Silver Splendour Rug”, available in four different sizes! (Purchase this rug at our online store today!) 

No 5: A Pink Palette

Designers are saying that 2016 will highlight shades of pinks and reds as a main colour scheme trend. As the use of pink may seem loud or overwhelming, we can assure you that subtle hints of these tones will add an impressive pop to any room in your home. We’ve matched one of our favourite pink rugs to this minimalistic interior to reveal how these tones can really liven up a space!
