Why White is Trending

Why Everyone is Loving White

In 2016, white is making trends year-round, not just between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Out are the days where it is a faux-pas to wear or utilize the crisp color in your interiors and accents past Labor Day. In interior design, all-white is a strong trend for 2016. 

White feels especially refreshing in the summer, but many are enjoying the crisp, minimal, feeling as many look to decrease clutter throughout their homes. We are seeing the trend carried out throughout entire homes, with the newest luxury kitchens and baths featuring tonal white countertops and appliances, as well as luxurious marble and stone finishes in baths. 

Many are attracted to white because of its simplicity. It serves as a great background for interesting art, patterned interior accents and more. The color also evokes a sense of airiness that can make a space feel open and revitalized. This can be something to consider if you are thinking about listing your home. 

Design Trend of 2016

In luxury real estate, we are always seeing cutting-edge design trends, being the first set of eyes on designer showcase houses and by working closely with top staging agencies. From lush white rugs in living spaces to novel white accents, the refreshing white color palette is transforming spaces. Not only is white being utilized in interior designs, it is also trending in The Hamptons as an exterior color of choice. New homes are being constructed in classic hamptons style with wooden shingle sides done in clean white rather than tan tones. 

The Victoria Shtainer Team has curated a selection of "it" white design pieces to inspire you to add a little touch of this trend throughout your home.
