Before we start, let’s take the time to reflect on this quote from designer Jonathan Adler:
“We live in an anything-goes world where it’s okay to mix high with low, mid-century with minimalist modern, colors, patterns, and everything in between. The best trend I’m seeing is people forgetting about the ‘rules’ and loving what they love unapologetically.”
That is exactly how we feel! So don’t just apply the trends : play with them, mix them, have fun with your interiors without thinking too much about whether it is “2016” or not!
That being said, sometimes we need inspiration and it is always good to discover new trends that will be right up your alley. So we have looked at the predictions of many industry experts: Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Vogue, Pinterest, InteriorDesign.net, Daily Mail, Huffington Post and more and it has given us soooo many ideas! Just see for yourself:
1 – Seventies Glam
It’s at the top of the list for a reason. Seventies Glam is a bit of a stunt: managing to pair the fun and the quirky with the glamour is quite an achievement! Featuring retro furniture with a luxury edge, bold colours and gold accents, both cozy and classy all at once, here are some Seventies Glam products to achieve the look:
2 – Folk Infusion and Exotic Flavours
Two trends in one, Folk Infusion and Exotic Flavours are all about bringing a global feel to your abode with tribal and ethnic prints without going all-out. Mainly on soft furnishings, mix those fabrics with more classic pieces and neutral tones to avoid overwhelming your room. This will also allow the bright colours to pop! We have some great things that fit this trend on Hutsly:
From left to right : Blue Gudrun Ikat Cushion. Hand Painted Enamel Pendant. Balloon Chair. Cotton Kilim Woven Rug. Jammu Canvas. Black Kantha Ikat Bedspread. Crewel Hand-Embroidered Maharajah Armchair.
3 – White and Blue
From our research, quite a few trends are based on this colours combination: from “Fresh Nauticals” to “A Delft touch”. A classic palette, it is also very flexible, allowing you to go from very classic styles (like Delft) up to more casual ones like Coastal (speaking of which, did you check our Ocean View collection?). Let’s have a look at the shopping list to make it happen:
From left to right : Blue Bone Inlay Bedside Table. Dip Dyed Indigo and White Bedspread. Sky Blue Kensington Bed Frame. Pastel Blue Handmade Glass Pendant Light. Blue Gustan Cushion. Navy Blue Diamond Armchair.
4 – Rough it up, but not too much
Another couple of trends we found to have a common underlying concept: “Sophisticated Upcycling” and “Rough Luxe”. It seems rough is the new sleek when it comes to luxury interiors but as habits die hard, we keep a touch of shiny metal to keep up with appearances! Untreated or reclaimed woods are paired with more classical pieces for a very unique perspective. Those pieces would be perfect for this:
5 - Mixed metals
50 shades of metals seems to be the Interior Design game of 2016! From shiny to rusty, it’s all about metals but not purely material-focused: anything with a metallic finish or sheen will work very well too, including fabrics like shiny velvets. Here are products you could combine to get the look:
From left to right : Antique Silver Embossed Chest of Drawers. Facto Copper Table Lamp with Glass Shade. Set of 3 House Tealight Holders. Brass Stool/Table. Antique Silver Clock Side Table. Antique Gold Sequin Crush Cushion. Rust Finish Round Botanical Tin. Large Round Antique Gold Metal Frame Mirrored.
