What will your business look like in 2016?

Christopher Johnson, Design Services Manager at Beacon, working closely with Dulux Design Services, sets out the trends for 2016 and how they can be implemented in your business. Drawing on traditional style combined with bold patterns, the trends for 2016 look to the past to influence the future.

Colour Futures 16 by Dulux and AkzoNobel, is the colour and trend bible for the interior design industry, highlighting one dominant theme for the year ahead, four interior trends, 45 trend colours and one colour of the year. The colour of the year for 2016 is Cherished Gold.

Cherished Gold is a hugely versatile colour that can be used in a variety of ways to achieve different outcomes and feelings. Teaming it with delicate pinks and chocolate brown tones adds a feminine edge that works well in honeymoon suites or premium rooms for example, whereas pairing it with a palette of warm neutral tones adds a luxurious yet homely feel to public areas.

TIP: Gold naturally adds a premium feel to the interior design,
so consider using it in specific areas throughout the hotel with accessories and statement feature walls, for example mirror and picture frames, objects d’art and luxe wall coverings.
