Head Outdoors

 

Outdoor living spaces provide a unique place to gather with family and friends. The trend is to extend your living room to the outdoor barbecue.  What better way to enjoy our beautiful Idaho vistas and climate!  Investing in an outdoor living space will not only enhance your enjoyment of your home, but it will also increase your home value. An American Institute of Architects Home Design Trends Survey recently identified outdoor living spaces as a top homeowner and homebuyer preference. Indoor/outdoor convergence is definitely a national trend.  When planning your outdoor living area here are some ideas you may want to consider:

  • ·       Outdoor cooking:  The kitchen is the heart of the home and of the outdoor living space.  In addition to built-in grills many homeowners are adding features such as pizza ovens, rotisseries, and cooking islands.  Weather resistant counters made of concrete, stone, and stainless steel provide needed prep space. The trend is to make the area a full-functioning kitchen including refrigerators and all-weather cabinetry.  Lighting is important in this area and will differ from the more muted lighting that is preferable in seating areas.

 

  • ·       Defining the Space:  Careful thought should be given to defining different areas of the outdoor living space.  A pergola provides a great seating or dining area, separate from the outdoor kitchen.  A wide variety of outdoor furniture is now available.  Space can also be defined with planters and built-in seating.  Fire pits have also become popular, and create an inviting gathering place.

 

  • ·       Evening entertaining:  Muted lighting, heat for cooler evenings, and, of course, music are important elements to consider in your outdoor living area.  A wide variety of lighting options are available, and can help define your entertainment area.  Heat lamps are a must and will extend the use of that area.  Wireless speakers, and TVs are easily incorporated.

Home Design Trends for 2016

Main Content Inline Small

The world of art, fashion and interior design is so rich of ideas inspired by everything beautiful and appealing in nature, history etc. Every fashion season is influenced by different trends that enrich the concepts of designers and give us awesome ideas of how to bring more beauty in our lives.

There are many factors that affect the changes and trends in interior design every year. Artists and designers from all over the world share their expectations and forecasts for the trends in fashion and interior décor for a year ahead.

The first months of the next year will be inspired by the Nordic nature. Expert designers predict that concepts will include frosty colors, such as icy blue, cold white, and dark green. The expectations for the main colors that will influence interior design concepts in the first half of 2016 suggest red undertones, purples and pinks. Designers will combine the browns with deep blues and cool greys.

The nature will be a great inspiration for interior design ideas for 2016. Designers present concepts enriched with influence of tropical nature with orchids, butterflies etc. One of the most interesting trends that we can see in concepts of designers for 2016 is the underwater world. Don’t be surprised to see more elements and ornaments inspired by clams and fish and the colors of corals. The usage of bright colors is expected to grow in 2016. Designers will blend different materials in the concepts and colors of signal red and “poisonous lime.” The vintage topic will be part of the interior design world in 2016. Designers will include more copper, oxidized metals and bronze in their projects for home décor.
