Interior design from the 1960's and 70's is hip now. The newest trends  feature anything in acrylic: tables, legs, trays etc. Furniture finishes in white lacquer and gold are strong contenders. Slender lamps and lower chair backs complete the look. See below... 

Large stylized gold ferns in the wall art create drama for this dining room by Williams Sonoma. Low backed dining chairs, acrylic table legs and the combination of chrome and gold is refreshing and bold. Very Mod! 

Acrylic is everywhere as furniture and accessories and often combined with glass. Very 70's glam.  Collins bench  by Kravet.

I love this brass cube in "gold" by Interlude Home. It can be moved around where needed as an extra table or as a piece of sculpture.

The Campaign look is back and is especially appealing in white lacquer, with gold handles no less! Perfect as a night stand or as an end table in the living room. Savoy by Kravet

The Trend Setter table lamp by Currey is a fresh new interpretation of the Sputnik light. So original! The slender legged dining chair by Schumacher is a reproduction from a 60's chair my mother used to have. So I am partial to it. Another piece in white lacquer is the 70's Geo cube by Miles Redd for Schumacher. For that 60's look you can't miss with the tripod floor lamp in metal. By Currey.

Hang groupings of pictures in different sizes for the most up to date way to handle a large wall. It's more work but so much fun. Makes a real design statement. Furnishings by Hickory White.

Interior Design trends for 2016 include softer, more pastel colors that impart a sense of serenity and calmness, with Pale Sky blue and Rose Quartz pink leading the way. Traditional furnishings are more weightless and airy in white and off white "antiqued" painted finishes. Gold is gaining in popularity as the accent finish to use on just about anything from accessories to plumbing fixtures. Wallpaper is making a big comeback for use on any wall in the home. And Chinese, Chinoiserie motifs add a touch of the exotic to traditional or contemporary interiors.

Serenity reigns in this transitional style living room. Pale blush pink pillows adorn these baby blue wing chairs and the sunburst mirror and small occasional table in gold provide the perfect accents for this calm white interior. Lilian White for Hickory Chair.

Embroidered lattice fabric in Rose Quartz  by Kravet is elegant and "new". Just the thing for curtains or pillows.

What could be more high style than this sky blue leather lounge chair by Baker. Pair it with the brass Chinoiserie table below for a real dynamic duo.

This elegant Chinoiserie end  table by Schumacher is done in brass for a true update. Chinoiserie is a style of decoration reflecting Chinese motifs seen in murals, wallpapers, fabrics and as decoration on furniture.

The graceful bamboo trees with gold metallic touches on a pale blue background make this wallpaper a perfect example of the latest in design for 2016. Samsara by Romo. 

More fun design elements  for 2016 include Feather Bloom wallpaper in fuschia, by Schumacher; Blown glass lamp in soft blue by Currey; Kendrick wool rug by Paterson Flynn & Martin and Prince lantern in gold leaf finish by Currey .

This beautiful 19th century French commode in "antiqued white" reflects the new light and airy side of traditional furniture meant to pair perfectly with the new pastels. by Schumacher.
