New Year, New Home.

January 8, 2016

January can only mean one thing- a time of new beginnings. So as you reach for the scales and start your new weight-loss endeavors, don’t neglect one area of your life where change can also bring about renewal and an all round sense of well-being. This area is of course the home. Similar to a spring clean, redecorating your home and embarking on a new DIY project can signal that “out with the old” mentality that is vital for growth and development going forward. So start 2016 in style by giving your home a make-over. Here are some of the best home decor trends to get you inspired this year.

Blue is the colour

Blue is hugely en vogue this year and has been a big seller in many home decor stores. Navy is a best seller right now, as are indigo and denim shades. A strong shade of blue is bold and fresh. Why not create a feature wall in one of your rooms, to give your house that 2016 contemporary feel.

Golden haze

Gold has been hot topic for a number of months now but for a lot of people this trend still seems a bit daunting. It need not be however, as when used sparingly in hardware and taps, it can add a subtle yet pleasing touch. Copper is also extremely popular at the moment, especially when used on lighting. To avoid creating an overly dated feel through the use of copper and gold, mix it in with white and new patterns.


Art deco-inspired patterns and shapes are set to pop up everywhere in 2016. The style’s trademark geometric patterns and honeycomb shapes will begin to appear everywhere from wallpaper to artwork, adding elegance and a refined feel.

Nubby Wool rugs

Rugs are easy, cost-effective pieces that you can add to any room in your home, to dramatically change its vibe.
Nubby wool or other natural fibers will be a popular texture for 2016. Their neutral hues create an earthy rustic feel, bringing the outdoor indoor.

There are lots of great design trends coming your way in 2016, that will help you to revamp your home in style. A new home environment provides the perfect setting for you to herald in other positive new year changes in your life.
