If you had to sum up the mood in interiors for 2016, 'warm minimalism' is probably the best way to accurately capture the soft, sophisticated and oh-so-slightly restrained wash of palettes that got the comfort treatment with lush textures and copper highlights this year.
Here's some of our favourite looks that nailed this year's best interior trends.
1. Indoor plants
Green thumbs stand proud, this was the biggest trend we saw this year, and we liked it. There's nothing easier than adding a pot plant to your home, and add them we did, because in 2016 the more plant life your home boasted, the better. Sure, it can be a challenge to keep them alive, but if you do, you'll be rewarded with cleaner air and a more colourful home.
2. Marble managed to shake off its heavy and overly ornate image and became a centrepiece for contemporary cool in 2016.
3. Pink got all grown up and showed up in the most sophisticated of settings. Paired with copper, brass and a dash of marble, the look is sure to keep growing in 2017.
4. Subway style continues to be the tile of choice for kitchen splashbacks. It's a timeless look that adds graphic pattern to a space.
5. Greys remained the go-to choice for luxe loveliness. Layer different tones for a softer look.
