THESE Are The Most Popular Home Trends of 2016

Whether you're planning to give your home an upgrade or just love looking at beautiful interior design images, Pinterest is the ultimate source for gorgeous, lust-worthy décor. There's no end to inspirational images and clever solutions that can be found on the popular content sharing site. From simple ideas to refresh your space to brilliant DIY tips to budget buys, Pinterest pretty much has it all. The site recently analysed its pins, looking at trending pins in popular categories and pins from influential pinners, in order to predict THE hottest design trends of the year. 

The good news is that Pinterest's top home décor pins can easily translate from website to home. While last year was all about metallics and accent walls, now we're moving towards matte finishes and neutral tones that are accessorised with bold textiles. Design trends to look out for this year are muted colours, with a hint of geometric patterning, a touch of colour and a sprinkling of natural elements. This year's design trends can easily be incorporated into your home and look great in most spaces, whatever the size. Ready for a home refresh? Here are Pinterest's top design trends for the year...

1. Typography art

Make a statement on your wall with a piece of gorgeous typography art. Black or grey text on a white background goes with everything but you can even make it yourself, allowing you to personalise size and colour to perfectly compliment your space. 

2. Artisan accents

Have travel plans this summer? Allow yourself to be inspired by new places and incorporate new textures and colours into your home. Take some design souvenirs home with you or recreate the feel of your holiday with furnishings and accessories from home. 

3. Graphic tiles

Perk up a tired bathroom with a geometric tile floor. Ultra chic and modern, there are so many designs to choose from. 

4. Woven wall décor

Isn’t that lovely? And so easy to make, too! 

5. 50 Shades of Grey

Colour trends may come and go, but grey is sure to remain a classic. Try mixing and matching different shades of grey to create an elegant yet cosy feel, then add bold accent pieces to keep the look fresh. Dip your toes into the trend with a few grey cushions or a knitted throw

6. Scandi-inspired design

Sleek Scandinavian design is all about simplicity. Think neutral tones, an emphasis on natural elements like wood and few accessories. A typical feature of Scandinavian homes is that there's very little clutter around - there's a chic storage solution for everything.
