The Top 5 Home Decor Trends for 2016.

Sometimes the smallest changes can have the biggest impact. Incorporating even one or two new trends can completely change the look of your home. Here are the hottest design trends of 2016 – and how you can save with our CAA Rewards® partners as you give your space a new look.

  1. Create a Nook

Adding a quiet space in the house provides a sanctuary from increasingly tech-driven lives. It could be a cozy living room sans TV or a sun-drenched reading nook complete with an overstuffed chair and cashmere throw. Enhance the zen vibe in the room by using soothing hues of ecru and eggshell, or take a cue from Pantone’s Colors of the Year and opt for Rose Quartz (pastel pink) or Serenity (powder blue).

  1. Mix-and-Match

The catchphrase of the year is “anything goes”, which makes upgrading a room a cinch. Pair light and dark cupboards in the kitchen, mix metals in your accessories, play with clashing finishes or combine luxe and affordable furniture finds. Adding an eclectic flair to your home will revitalize it in a snap.

  1. Animal Motifs

Walk through any home decor store and you’ll be amazed at the herds of creatures before you. Photo-realistic animal images are popping up on pillows, throws and paintings while animal-shaped figurines will add whimsy to your bookshelves. FYI: owls of 2015 are taking flight to make way for the animal du jour, the horse.

  1. Unique Finds

A one-of-a-kind accessory or piece of furniture can totally change the look and feel of a room, so unique, artisanal pieces are on the rise. Along with this comes the trend of paring down to let only a few meaningful pieces shine, which means you can make a big impact without spending a fortune.

  1. Being Green

Sustainability continues to make a big impact on home design. Buying locally sourced or reclaimed woods, using finishing techniques that are less harmful to the environment and refurbishing your furniture or opting for vintage pieces are just a few of the ways you can keep your home renos green.
