NEW year means get­ting ready for new home trends. And it looks like dec­o­ra­tors will once again be in­spired by the fash­ion cat­walk.

Stylist Megan Mor­ton says dec­o­ra­tors will be us­ing metallics, blacks, feath­ers and fringes that fea­ture in the fash­ion shows.

It won’t only be about style as peo­ple make more ef­fort to get thrifty, Mor­ton adds.

So what’s on the hori­zon? Here are a few of Mor­ton’s pre­dic­tions. Go­ing nat­u­ral Sim­plic­ity and light­ness will be at the fore­front of de­sign, with nat­u­ral and whitewash tones tak­ing the lead.

A neu­tral colour pal­ette is the key to a beau­ti­ful room, be­cause you can sub­tly or dra­mat­i­cally change the room by adding pops of colour and ex­per­i­ment with ac­ces­sories like rugs, cush­ions, throws and rugs. Magic metal­lic Get set to shim­mer in 2016 and en­joy metal­lic magic us­ing bronze, sil­ver and gold against bright whites. Metallics have a warm tone and will com­ple­ment other items. Try the lim­ited-edi­tion Megan Mor­ton Four Poster Bed by Incy In­te­ri­ors. The tra­di­tional four­poster bed is made from rose gold and cop­per-coloured iron for a con­tem­po­rary touch. Get thrifty We will see a mix of old meets new next year, giv­ing rooms some lay­ered lus­tre while help­ing to per­son­alise the space. Op-shops, eBay and flea mar­kets are great places to source charm­ing pieces.

Look for stylish items such as bas­kets as an al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional toy boxes and draw­ers. Get back into black Black has been em­braced by many and will creep back into our homes in 2016. Con­trast it against white ac­ces­sories for a chic look. Ruf­fle some feath­ers En­joy feath­ered fi­nesse at home by re­plac­ing tra­di­tional flo­ral cen­tre­piece with a col­lec­tion of feath­ers or se­lect a fea­turein­spired art­work to dress a wall. Fringe fes­ti­val From cloth­ing to ac­ces­sories to home­wares, the boho fringe trend will make its mark. Fringed drapes will help shade us from the sun while fringed doilies will dress any­thing from kitchen ta­bles to so­fas and more. Break the habit Next year is the per­fect time to move away from matchy matchy. Be colour con­fi­dent – 2016 will be filled with rain­bows.
