Real estate trends are always changing, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up – for you and your clients. Avoid yesterday’s shag, ensuring a stylishly staged setting with the help of these interior home design tips.
Stage your homes right with these up-and-coming real estate trends for 2016:
- Warm-up colors.
Accent colors like gold, gray and dusty rose are expected to be in the spotlight for 2016. In these uncertain times, the public is turning towards softer shades such as these to inspire a sense of peace.
- Don’t neglect neutrals.
Neutral shades like gray, beige and cream are in high-demand. They work great not only as starting points on walls and surfaces, but in the form of couches, armchairs and area rugs as well.
- Know your “IT” colors:
The world’s unofficial color authority, Pantone, reports rose quartz and iced coffee will be next spring’s big thing.
- Understate bling.
Shimmer and shine, or the illusion of those things, will be present in fabrics, as will bolder colors as accents in the form of decorative vases, paintings and sculptures.
- Go au-natural.
Natural materials such as metal, reclaimed wood, and leather mixed and matched between coffee and side table accents are no longer taboo. Mixed materials, patterns, and vintages are no longer shunned, but a widely accepted practice.
- Clean-up lines.
Say goodbye to clunky, carved furniture and frou-frou florals. Order and sophisticated lines are in. Clean and industrial, coupled with fabrics and fibers with a natural, organic feel that are comforting and soothing.
- Lively, livable living spaces.
Forget formal living spaces in favor of functional, inviting spaces with a wholesome feel. Think more casual-beachy feel, unhampered by clutter or a sense of formality.
