Top 3 Home Decor Trends for Summer 2016

My favorite home decor trends this summer are all about unexpected combinations. Whether you’re planning to redecorate your kitchen, dining room, or living room, mixing materials can add character and warmth to a space that needs a little TLC.

Eclectic Kitchens

While many homeowners are still partial to the clean lines and sharp simplicity of monochromatic kitchens, that trend no longer dominates home decor. Many are moving toward a more eclectic vibe by incorporating mixed materials in the kitchen. The exposed beams pair well with the cobblestone floor and offer a welcoming contrast with the pale granite countertops and white cabinetry in the photo above.

Matte Finishes

Whether it’s with chalk paint or oxidized metal, matte finishes provide effortless elegance. Pair them with lighter, brighter materials like white subway tile or neutral linen to let them really stand out without being overbearing.

Paired Patterns

Don’t be afraid to mix bold patterns this season! A rug with a large, geometric print can easily be coupled with more delicate patterns, like the floral print on the throw pillows in the photo above.
