Home decorating and design is about to get more exciting this coming 2016 as the emerging trends for the upcoming year are revealed by local designers and experts.

The design industry will welcome natural materials, warm dramatic colors and clean linen this coming new year, as revealed by expert interior designers on Suffolk Times. Metal will be back in the spotlight together with wood and accent colors this 2016. Floral designs and carved figurines are also back on trend as 2015 bids goodbye.

Sophisticated lines are in this 2016 in home design, even with traditional home stylists, shares Debbie Gildersleeve, owner of Renee’s in Mattituck. Ornate furniture that showcases intricate and grand details will be back in business.

A mix of materials and finishes will also be entering the home design market this new year, with wood, leather and metal as leading choices. Neutral shades such as beige, cream and gray will also be in demand this coming year when it comes to home styles and furnishing.

Maria Killam also agrees that the home decorating industry will be leaning into colors, accents and bold furnishings this 2016. Faux fur will be one of the favorite textures injected inside homes and living areas as well as natural fiber, specifically in rugs and room accents. Floral chairs in big and bold sizes are going to dominate stylish living rooms this coming year.

Gorgeous and dramatic colors will also be part of the trend. Gold and silver will be a favorite, in parallel to the latest home accents that will be available in touches of metal and wood. Pink and blue will still be favorites but will be on the back end as more dramatic colors take the spotlight.

The year 2016 in home decorating is all about color, texture and natural materials. The latest trends in design and décor will definitely make the new year an interesting and exciting year when it comes to home design and decorating.
