6 Interior Design Trends for 2016

Is to create an interior design project or even to inspire change in our own environment, we are always looking for references and trends with what’s cooler to give an F5 decoration.

Strolling through the Design Weekend (see how was our experience there), giving boards on Pinterest, seeking FFFOUND in specialized blogs and how it is possible with a good look on Google Images, we separate our bets (and nomenclatures!) for decorating styles that will be trends in 2016.

But this list of 6 styles does not come alone: separate reference images, textures, products and lifestyle tips. After all, decoration not only changes the environment, but also our personality and the relationship with the spaces. Reading is guaranteed fresh ideas;)

In Portuguese, serendipity means “discoveries made by chance” or “one of the many creative potential development techniques combining perseverance, intelligence and sense of observation” (via Dictionary Informal ). Decor, we refer to this as serendipity minimal and delicate trend that rescues some Provencal elements, such as white porcelain, pottery and flowers on the table and updates with raw finishes and reuse of materials, without exaggeration.

The spaces are bright, spacious and have a palette of soft colors. Not even the pastel shades are used in excess. The color points are planned and neutralized with natural wood and why not? Plywood panels. Small gardens also enchants with succulents and cacti, which are easy to care for.

Serendipity is also about knowing invest in certain details: the fabrics are comfortable and objects are a blend of functionality and charm: Boleiras, baskets and trays do not sound like superfluous.

The lifestyle is simple. Problems are solved with less stress and more functionality and reflection.There is a concern with healthier ways of eating, sustainable consumption and receive people at home. As an immediate reference, remember the project We receive and delicate vessels of Pomelo.

Colored walls, pop references and courage to bet on different. FUN dsgn is a young and urban style, ideal for those looking to show a vibrant personality through decoration.

Let the most classic inspirations, such as posters of Roy Lichenstein the Emoji fixtures. But the style does not draw attention only for aesthetics never seen so many objects printed with reproductions of Frida Kahlo paintings with political messages and rescue tropicalistas references. FUN dsgn is fun decor, but can also be loaded engagement and messages that people like to be surrounded.

Associations niches, crates, printed cushions, lacquered furniture and objects full of humor. Most FUN dsgn inspirations are concentrated in a prominent space, especially in the living room and / or kitchen.

Nothing prevents you to innovate in the room, bathroom or any other room. Here, the important thing is dosed so that the aspect does not get loaded.

Investing in different palettes with counterpoints in wood and more neutral colors is a sure bet. We know that combining tones can be challenging, so we teach you to use the color wheel to your advantage and understand how the purple and yellow mixture is possible to work, for example.Come see .

Knitting, acrylic and gloss finishes. The textures of this style is eclectic, but manage to find balance in wood and sober fabrics.

Afraid to risk too much in fun style? Select some objects and see how slowly they can fit without being over. Another tip can paint the walls, put stickers, lick lick or even venture applying stamps:


In the 50s, the old factories of New York gave way to apartments and lofts. With this change -by need or aesthetic – came the industrial style in home decor.

Here, one aspect of the factory floor wins another level. Some elements are maintained or even created to rescue this rawest aspect. Floors and burnt cement walls, exposed brick and wood demolition give that aspect stripped, that contrary to common sense, involves a lot of planning. Very common in this style, the external electrical pipe, for example, should still be considered in the design phase – read more about it here.

There are quite careful that this style does not seem to let go. The idea .INC is intentionally reproduce the environment of an industry, remember the informal space of a shed, and not necessarily denote that there is no coating or any kind of finishing.

And if you are wondering? “But if this style come from the 50, as can be trend in 2016.” Well, the industrial style always remained as a trend, but is updated in the details: walls slate (learn to make your here ) , rescue vintage packaging, bikes for transportation + decorative object and all the hipster aesthetic that we secretly love comes with all these environments.

The .INC colors are sober, but explode into colors and specific objects. The materials are more raw and privilege exposed brick and cement, but still leave room for more formal coatings, such as those like rectangular tiles with the London Underground.

To warm the environment, it’s always good to invest in comfortable fabrics, whether on the couch, blankets, quilts and / or carpets. Lighting can also make this aspect more welcoming factory, especially with finishes such as copper, another trend to leave the sameness Silver / Gold – and still kills bacteria . Here are a few product suggestions in most .INC style:

Low Poly

We already had a strong hunch to this trend in the post ‘geometric patterns: 15 images and tips for you to adopt the style at home’ , inspired by a popular aesthetic graphic design: Poly Low – which is basically the transformation of objects and / or complex photos in polygons with sensational color palettes – you can check out some projects in Dribble and Behance .

The screens of the designers, the geometry back to dominate the interior: you will find printed wallpapers, posters, patterns of triangular tiles, hexagonal coats and even furniture obeying the Pythagorean theorem.

The style seems to be essentially fun, especially the vivid color schemes applied frequently. But geometric patterns can gain a more sober and modern look to bet on gray tones and materials more “formal” as cement and wood.

The trend is greatly enhanced by innovation in materials: wood found in patterns, tiles that do not obey proportions of 20 × 20 cardboard furniture and embossed finishes.


Do not mistake: when we speak of classic style, do not want to remember Greek columns or large Carrara marble applications. In this sense, we recommend reading (with a dash of humor) Architect Article Guto Requena for the Folha de S. Paulo – ‘How to have a tacky house in 5 steps’ 😉

Tastes aside, the classic trend refers as much to the conservation of the spaces, especially the modernist inspiration. In this style, the idea is to invest (rather) in iconic and timeless pieces, mainly in furniture: Eames chairs, armchairs Sergio Rodrigues, Tulipe tables and objects signed by designers mark environments without forcing ostentation.

Besides the economic constraint (a stool of double original Eames can cost R $ 1,416 as the initial price), perhaps the greatest hallmark of this style is exactly this knowledge of who signs the pieces, the most memetic way of “pundits understand” – professionals branch and residents will value the design and the investment made in the objects.

But the classic style should not be summed up in the word “spend”. Preserve is also watchword: restore wooden clubs, furniture renovation and retrofit projects (do not know what Check?.) Seek permanence of this style.

The color palette follows the infallible trio: black, white and brown in different intensities, without abandoning the colors and natural finishes. Read more about this reference.


Try to summarize the contemporary interior design done in Brazil in a single trend is at least a challenge. We have spoken in Brazils plural and every day appears something new and creative to redefine what is Brazilian home.

To summarize or not underestimate the national production, we will only point out what we have seen more recurrent: integrated spaces, brightly colored dots, solid wood and appreciation of what is done in the country. Combined?

We see large slabs, few walls, pillars and principles of the hands of architecture given to the choices made in the Brazilian interior. The large spaces receive plenty of light and are complemented with robust furniture, plants and decorative objects.

By the way, forget any negative impression on crafts – BR parts are well finished and well used Brazilian materials such as ceramics, straw, golden grass and an impressive variety of tissues.

These mobile and more sober finishes not escape a touch of color. Pillows, ottomans, plants, tapestry … There is always something that will make the environment is vibrant, in the right measure.

Textures are more natural and realize certain preference for handmade pottery and national coats, as Cobogó – learn all about these pieces in this article.

The innovations do not stop the Brazilian product design. During the Design Weekend! We had the opportunity to meet the winners of prototypes Hall Design in 2015 and take a guided tour , eggstore that focuses the work that intertwines design and art signed by Luciana Martins and Gerson de Oliveira.
