A New Year means time to make new commitments to our families and ourselves. At S&G Carpet, we know that the New Year also means new trends in design and new ways to express our style sensibilities through flooring. No matter your decor style, you’ll find a trend you can love as 2015 gives way to 2016. If you’re looking for design inspiration, start with one of these four gorgeous new trends.
Going for the Natural
Muted whites, taupes and soft metallics are big news this season. The clean, classic color palette is complemented by furnishings, draperies and accent pieces in neutral colors with metallic accents. Rose golds and muted silvers are particularly popular.
Hardwood might seem like the obvious choice here, but carpeting and area rugs work surprisingly well with the neutral-and-natural theme too. For a luxurious feel, choose a shag carpet in crisp white. To accent a Berber carpet or hardwood floor, choose a soft throw rug that incorporates metallic threads.
Bringing History to Life
Lush styles inspired by the high romance of bygone historical eras are also big this year. These period-centric looks make use of antique furniture, statement pieces and fanciful baubles. The key to pulling off a clean decor scheme with all these elements is setting a good foundation.
In terms of carpeting, that means choosing deep colors with shades of gray. Frieze, cut-and-loop and Berber styles all work well with a historically inspired decor scheme. If you’re choosing area rugs to suit this theme, consider ornate floral or geometric designs.
This 2016, with multiple patterns, textures and colors available, carpeting is evolving as the main focal point in most of the interior designs.
