Decor Trend Report: Summer 2016

Professional interior designer Leslie Hart-Davidson from HDD Studios showcases the latest home decor trends.


Multi-Functional Finish

D.L.Couch featured a fabulous new product called Arriero, a 100% cork product that serves double duty as both wallcovering and upholstery.  The acrylic top coat makes it suitable for both wipeable dining chair fabric and durable wallpaper for high-traffic areas!


Pantone Color of the Year

Rose Quartz, the pink part of Pantone's color of the year, is showing up in quite a bit of upholstery and accents for home decor.  Linen, velvet and brushed canvas are all popular types of sofa& chair fabrics to sport the light pink look.  Drapery and toss pillows are popping with the pale tone as well.


Backsplash Drama

Two different trends are emerging for kitchen backsplash tiles:  the Joanna Gaines camp and the Property Brothers vibe.  Joanna Gaines from HGTV's Fixer Upper program promotes a rustic, farmhouse-style look with subway tile.  The stamped Mediterranea 4"x8" tile from Virginia Tile is a new way to bring old features to a remodel.  At the opposite end of the spectrum, Drew and Jonathan from HGTV's Property Brothers promote a sleek look with either colored glass tile or stainless steel.  Using the subway-shaped tiles in a vertical stack rather than the traditional brick-laid pattern adds a more updated feel.


Gold, Baby!

Table legs, faucets, light fixtures, accessories, picture frames:  you name it, gold is on it this season.  Does this mean that you can forget about updating all of the shiny brass hardware in your 80's or 90's new construction home?  No, but you can be that the higher-end gold and pink finishes shown in furniture stores and catalogs will have you singing the soundtrack from Sixteen Candles.
