Hottest 2016 Design Trends


2015 was certainly the year of the neutral, with soft greys performing as a backdrop to white subway tile kitchens and baths, all anchored by black accents to provide balance. While this look is classic — and isn’t going out of style anytime soon, incorporate the following design trends to boost the wow-factor of your home or office space.

Minerals and unusual geometric patterns are being re-invented.

Maybe you have a set of agate bookends, or perhaps you installed a hexagon tile in a bathroom. Geometric designs and minerals have been growing in popularity, but they are being taken to a new level in 2016. Designers are re-imagining these already stunning forms, adding movement and fluidity. A great example are these new wallcoverings.
