Interior Looks for 2016
If you’re planning a home makeover this year and in need of a little inspiration, then look no further than these four very different, but equally stylish looks that will refresh your home for 2016.
Less is more with this interior style. Lighten your room and create the illusion of a larger space with pale wood, plain walls and mellow fabrics. Keep this style fuss-free and incorporate soft curves with your choice of furniture. An understated colour palette including pale blues, soft greys and muted tones of earth and stone will create a relaxing mood. The Mistral fabric sofa in Naples Cream would set the stage for this look, and we love the grey colour palette from Fired Earth.
This year, there is a real trend for deep shades that make us feel tranquil and cosy. Florals are a key part of this look and the colour palette features peacock blues and teal greens, dark shades of grey and midnight blue. It’s a rich and vibrant scheme, but at the same time brings a warm and inviting feel to your living room. The floral wallpaper of the Kim Parker Artbook by Clarke & Clarke would work wonderfully well as would our Watson leather sofa in Dallas Slate. Complement this look with bold, colourful accessories.
Cool and contemporary Scandinavian style is on-trend for 2016. Think white, beige and cream brought to life with an accent colour such as mustard or spiced orange. Chevron prints, weaves and geometrics are also fashionable and would work incredibly well against the muted backdrop of a Nordic space. Scatter these gorgeous bright G Plan cushions against the Atlanta leather sofa in Capri Stone to bring this style home.
As we manage increasingly hectic lifestyles and strive to balance work and play, it seems we all want to take a step back from today’s fast-paced world and unwind in a cosy family space at the end of a long day. We want somewhere comfortable and relaxing where we can enjoy a good book, watch a film, play board games and catch up with family and friends. A corner sofa like the Bronte is the perfect choice. It offers versatile seating to suit contemporary living and provides space for the whole family. A soft mohair throw and scatter cushions add an extra layer of comfort whilst a storage footstool or wicker magazine basket are practical additions that would really suit this style.
