Hey y’all…We are so excited you are here with us today!
A little over a week ago, our Atlanta bloggers group had a special invitation for a preview of what’s new and next in home decor and furnishings. We are so appreciative that the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market extended this invitation so that we could see first hand what is trending for 2016!
We got to explore new collections from the industries finest designers and showrooms, as well as speak to forecasters and trendsetters.
And the best part…we get to share with you what we discovered and learned! There are three buildings filled with showrooms that are packed with eye-candy for days…accessories, furniture, art and so much more. Most vendors were very gracious and allowed us to take photographs with our iPhones.
We will highlight the top three trends:
1. Weathered Wood and Farmhouse Style
The experts claimed this is a style that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Weathered wood continues to to be a hot trend in home furnishings as well as outdoor decor. Farmhouse style remains supreme as long as it looks authentically vintage and aged.
If you follow us on Instagram you have had a sneak peek of this lovely vignette…
2. The Blues
Blue will be a hot color – especially indigo and denim. Popular pairings for blue is gold, silver, bronze, oranges and pinks.
3. Mixed Metallics
Pairing mixed metal finishes and colors were everywhere in the market. Mixing gold, silver and bronze all in one room is high on the 2016 trend list.
This was one of our favorite displays…
We hope you liked the snippet of this firsthand look of design trends for 2016. We really like a little bit of everything but most of our favorite choices were in the weathered wood design houses. Which is your favorite?
