Home décor trends are always changing, and as 2016 begins, we have noticed a few specific trends popping up everywhere we look. When incorporating new ideas and styles in with your home’s current décor, we recommend looking for ones that will last and can maintain their beauty even after their time in the limelight is over. Houzz has put together a list of trends to try – and avoid – in 2016, and we have come up with some ideas you can try with our favorites.

Mix and Match Patterns

Figuring out how to mix patterns without hurting the eyes of your guests can seem tricky, but this trend is one that has been around forever, and for good reason. Mixed patterns add depth and interest to a room; it just takes a little bit of time to find the right patterned pieces to pair together.
We recommend starting your project by finding an item that inspires you and pulling a color from it that you will include in each of your patterned pieces. Also, pay attention to the placement of your patterned items, dispersing them evenly throughout your space, and look for patterns of different scales. A bunch of large scaled patterns will be overwhelming in a room, but a small scale one paired with a large scale one will add the perfect touch of whimsy to your space.

Brushed Brass Accents

Although silver reigned supreme for a period of time, 2015 was the year that we transitioned back to gold. And if you are looking for a more muted option for your hardware, brushed brass is the perfect choice. Warm yet subtle, brass has a glow about it that pairs beautifully with a wide variety of colors and materials and will remain attractive and demure for years to come.

Oversized Art

If you are looking for something to fill that empty space above your mantle or couch, look no further than an oversized art piece for the answer. A bold alternative to the gallery walls that have been so popular in the past few years, one piece of oversized art will wow you guests with its vibrant impact. There are endless options to choose from, so get as creative as you want while exploring this elegant and stylish new trend.
