To kick off the year, the Internet’s favorite digital/social ideas board, Pinterest, gathered up 100 trending pins that represented what’d be front-of-mind in 2016, from food and crafts to home design.
We picked through the latter to give a little insight into what stagers, builders and style-forward homeowners are doing to their spaces (according to Pinterest trends). And to illustrate, we found examples in homes on the market in Nashville now. Take a look through:
Home trends from the Pinterest 100 for 2016
The Pinterest 100: Gender-neutral nurseries
The light and airy nursery in this East Nashville home couldn’t be cuter — sweet without being cutesy and clean without being antiseptic, and on point with the gender-neutral grays, white and orange. Subtle and spacious as this room is (the rest of the house is plenty spacious too — you have nearly 3,000 square feet, with 3 more beds and 2 1/2 baths), it’ll easily grow into a big-kid room.
This beautiful bath in Belle Meade keeps things classic, but pulls a pop of pattern in the floor tile that really grabs your attention. It takes what could’ve otherwise been a pretty common bathroom design and brings some added interest.
The Pinterest 100: Black and white interiors with organic elements
The black cabinetry and white walls in this Inglewood kitchen bring in sleek and cool vibes; the natural butcher block counter top injects warmth. It’s a great combo, for sure. (And there’s lots more dynamic and smart design throughout this 3-bed, 2 1/2-bath renovation.)
The Pinterest 100: bright graphic throw pillows to make your space come alive.
A pitch-perfect example of the power of throw pillows: This Green Hills home stays subtle when it comes to wall and trim color, but shoos away the hospital-room gloom with big pops of color, much of it coming in pillow form. (The ottomans make this bedroom feel extra cozy, too.) Click through the rest of this 4-bed, 4 full/2 half-bath home for some more home design inspiration — some excellent staging over every inch of its 3400-plus square feet.
The Pinterest 100: Scandinavian-inspired design
An appreciation of the simplicity of Scandinavian design is nothing new — and there are a lot of reasons behind its staying power. A big one, as evidenced in the dining set in this beautiful 4-bed, 3 1/2-bath Belmont home: the style’s proven ability to play well with others, like this more ornate light fixture.
The Pinterest 100: “It’s all about gray. Gunmetal is the new copper and shades of gray will take over”
White kitchen cabinets have been the more common choice over the past few years, but we’re seeing more branching out — like the deep gray in this 1-bed, 1-bath unit at Twelve Twelve in The Gulch. What’s your verdict: think it adds depth, or do you prefer the cleaner look of light/white cabinetry?
So how are you feeling about Pinterest’s home picks? Are these ideas you’d pin, or stuff you’d scroll by?
