Buy sustainable things

Liven up with life

As many people enjoy the outdoors, adding greenery and a hint of the outdoors into your house will bring freshness to your indoor style. Furniture that can be used both indoors and outdoors will definitely become a popular trend. Use big aluminium sliding folding doors and windows to ensure that you get a great view of the outdoors.

Decorate with minerals

Displaying unpolished semi-precious stones on door and drawer handles and pulls as well as bowls filled with pyrite on tables is going to be seen in trendy houses in 2016. Don’t be shy to spice up your house with minerals.

Be dramatic

Adding dramatic colours, ceramic backsplashes and bold statements is in fashion. This can be well incorporated into your house to create a fluid movement from one room to the next. Cement and wood hard textures can be intertwined with metals and metallics to create a harmonious fashion. One way to enable your interior style to be somewhat consistent is to find a feature colour that you can incorporate into every room to create visual harmony.

Shine up

Mixing metallics and metals, for example brass, gold and metallic finishes, will add some 1970s retro style to your home.

Go for geometric tiles

Geometric patterns that incorporate fluid movement patterns are bound to become popular.

Add contrasting textures

Contrasting textures are able to add depth to your interior as well as make your rooms more comfortable and homely. The key with different textures is to make sure you create the right balance between playful and sophisticated.

Focus on your kitchen

As your kitchen is the heart of your home, designing it into a space that enables it to act as a multipurpose space that your friends and family can enjoy should be your top designing priority. An open plan kitchen, dining, room and living area enables your house to become more interactive and spacious.
