One of our highlights here at Moody Monday is anticipating new interior design trends. We see them as an opportunity to truly understand customer needs, innovate and dictate where the industry is going.
In today’s blog post, we share the key trends we believe will set the tone for interior design in 2016.
1. Cosmic Attraction
Ethereal, deep and richly stimulating, this colour trend transports us into a state of serenity, beauty and adventure at the same time. Imagine exploring the colours of the night sky: midnight blues, turquoise, rich greens – the perfect colours to complete a warm and captivating interior.
This trend with its futuresque look and feel will make an impression on walls and soft furnishings in 2016. It is clear that we increasingly want personal spaces which are honest, pure and can arouse all our senses.
You can look to Moody Monday’s Dance and Modulate with Feelings Wallpaper designs to inject this beautiful trend into your living room. Also expect some exciting new designs in our new collection due to launch later this year (more updates to follow). Discover more on the colours in Behr’s 2016 color trends.
2. Metallic tones
With Cherished Gold named Dulux’s colour of 2016 , we will see luxe metallic finishes everywhere. Our love for metals from 2015 lingers as gold, stainless steel, platinum and brass continue to make appearances.

Look out for rich metallic tones especially in furniture, bathroom fittings, decorative accessories, wall coverings and even artwork. Irrespective of your home style, mixing metals can add the perfect sparkle and sophistication to any space. We will likely see a move away from garish overly polished looks to softer hues as homeowners look to create interest without being ostentatious.
3. Black stainless steel kitchens
Move over shiny silver, the kitchen appliance industry is going back to black. We saw this trend starting to creep in towards the end of last year and it’s here to stay. With a more subtle, less reflective finish, we’ve seen Samsung and LG launch new suites of appliances in the last few months.
British interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard adds that “No longer side lined as the metal for overwrought outdoor furniture or bed frames, the decidedly unflashy material is appearing as simple hardware, bathroom fixtures and even flatware”.
If you’re thinking of a kitchen makeover this year, this is the trend you should definitely take seriously.
4. Bathroom Comforts
Fewer quick showers, it’s time for more pampering. Look forward to seeing more décor and stylish cabinetry making its way into the bathroom, turning it almost into a second bedroom.
The focus in 2016 will be more on the ambience of the bathroom. To stay on trend, adding a stool, statement mirrors and greenery can create a well lived-in space you want to wake up to in the morning or escape to at night.
