“Become who you are” – positive psychology advises us, because there is something special, something remarkable in every person. And when you experience your individuality freely, you are also happy. There is no right or wrong here, just as there is with the prospects for the coming year. 2016 sets a special trend in home furnishings and leaves plenty of room for personal development. It becomes individual, free and colorful – according to Pippi’s Longstocking attitude to life – “I make the world as I like it”. So act quickly and be inspired by our gorgeous picture gallery!
Individuality and openness
The 2016 furnishing style adapts entirely to the personal wishes and preferences of the residents. Individuality and openness are very important, because there are no rigid rules, but personal creativity and a lot of free space that impress.
Heavy curtains, large furniture and practical room dividers disappear to create more space in the apartment and invite people to “come in” thanks to the seamless transition between the rooms. The different functional areas in the living room are visually delimited by trendy multifunctional furniture. One example of this are the so-called modular sofas. They adapt very well to personal wishes and allow them to be arranged in an original way again and again. Individual armchairs can be put together to form a sofa or several small sofas.
There is also a new trend in dining room furnishings that cleverly combines different types of chairs. “Casual Dinig”, which we all know from many restaurants, is now also fully in in your own four walls. The pleasure of dining is combined with the lounge feeling thanks to innovative furniture groups in different seat heights.
Be creative with Euro pallets
For those who are inspired by the simplicity of things, there are no limits in 2016. Designing your own creative and unusual pieces of furniture from Euro pallets is now very modern, because they are cheap, reusable and very versatile. It only takes a few screws, sandpaper, paint and your own imagination to make a coffee table, shelf or even a bed. Since Euro pallets are made of wood, they can be easily combined with felt and glass.
Knitwear is chic
The knit look is very modern again this year, not only in the fashion world, but also in home decoration. Knitwear such as lampshades, chair covers, sofa cushions and even knitted wallpaper make the home more cozy, especially in the cold season.
Yellow is the trend color of the year
It will be significantly brighter and happier in the home design, because yellow is the trend color of the coming year. It symbolizes the rising sun, means optimism and energy and thereby loosens every bedroom and living room. Yellow is very invigorating and also makes small rooms appear friendlier, brighter and more open. All the nuances that yellow has to offer are popular: from strong mustard to tender sand and pigeon to shining lemon. On the wallpaper, on pillows, sideboards or sofas – yellow should not be missing in trendy living.
