Come one, come all, and see what is trending at the *Trifle office in 2016...

What's going to be big in 2016 you ask?  Well, we were just thinking about that! Here is our round up of the interiors trends we expect to make a big mark in 2016.

DUSTY PINK

Definitely the colour of the moment, we are seeing dusty and pale pinks popping up everywhere - from beauty and fashion to home, hospitality and office interiors. It's no wonder Pantone has named Rose Quartz one of their Colours of the Year. No brainer!

INDIGO BLUE 

Another colour which will continue to be big this year is Indigo. Forget about grey, this is the new "neutral" backdrop to use for comfort and drama that goes with anything, just like your favourite pair of jeans.

GET ON GRID

There is something very satisfying about a good grid, subtly suggesting orderliness and providing a framework within which you can be creative.

SO HOT SOTTSASS

Tying in with the grid trend but taking it to another level with bold colours and patterns, Sottsass and Memphis are back in style in a big way.

IRIDESCENCE

Not totally mainstream, we've noticed more and more iridescent finishes popping up in fashion and interiors recently and we have to say, we like it! Good for a hint of colour, or could look quite cool and futuristic teamed up with concrete.

TAKING BIOPHILIA TO NEW HEIGHTS

We don't need to tell you how plants can wonderfully improve a space - both in terms of aesthetics and air quality - but this year why not try to think about the vertical plane when incorporating greenery into your space? Here are some ideas we love.

RATTAN

A natural material gaining some well-deserved recognition in interiors, rattan can be used to add warmth and texture in any space.

MIXED MATERIALS

Mixing materials is nothing new but this year we are loving combinations that bring together some pleasantly surprising finishes for a lovely mash up of textures.
