2016 Trends for Interiors

A new year and new trends for your home.  At Luxe Interiors, we keep up on the latest and greatest in order to bring you the freshest ideas.

Pantone Color Institute is the foremost expert in color influencing, and announced their two chosen colors for 2016:  Rose Quartz and Serenity.

“Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.”

Pastels?  Really?

We can embrace a little pink.  Combine the soft pink with navy blue for a fresh take.  This blush tone is also nicely enhanced by warm grays or charcoals.  Used in small doses as an accent color, Rose Quartz is a fresh addition for spring months.

How about a deeper version of Rose Quartz?  We love a deeper, more purple tinged version. Can’t help but love the way the purple makes the pale pink accent seem edgier.

Rose Quartz will be a much more fashion forward trend, and more likely to be loved by the fashion industry.

Serenity, on the other hand, is much more widely accepted.  Blue is having a great resurgence over the last few years, and seems fresher than ever.  From pale, grayed out hues to soft watery teals, this side of the 2016 trend is everywhere in interiors.

Why the paler tones for color of the year?  Pantone’s color analysts believe that we are all looking to be more mindful and aware, and looking for a kinder and more serene outlook.  Historically, election years without an incumbent have been lighter in their color trends, as the population looks for ways to be less anxious and to handle change easier.  There are so many global issues currently that contribute to this uneasy time so perhaps a little color psychology can help.

We’ve got the goods at Luxe Interiors to show you how you can live with this new color trend.  We update our sample library daily with the latest and innovative styles of fabric and papers.
