"Our designers know the customers, are knowledgeable about the construction process and are current with new and trending products,” he adds.

Here's a brief overview of what our designers see trending for 2016

Color selections and accent fabrics:

Soft, neutral tones and palettes - Soft Focus colors that reveals subtle and/or muted colors, sometimes being described as "smoky" and always versatile: Sherwin Williams 6073 Perfect Greige really is the perfect blend of grey and beige, SW6204 Sea Salt is an excellent soft, coastal aqua (also used in some places in The Avianna), SW7547 Sandbar is a great beige that doesn’t have any pink in it (which is hard to find), SW7551 Greek Villa is a great, soft creamy white

50 shades of Gray – literally… Grays are still very popular, especially when paired with fresh creams and whites

Bold Accent Patterns: in vibrant colors – jewel tones, warm hues, vibrant and rich blues and greens: accent patterns that gleam with drama and intensity across many jewel tones. You’ll also see vibrant greens and yellows contrasted with pinks and oranges. Shades of navy, black, tan and regimental green co-mingle with touches of brighter colors.

Expect to see metal finishes in the kitchen that don’t match. A mixture of gold, bronze, gunmetal and silver are popping up in kitchen hardware and lighting that gives individuality and acceptance to retro and vintage products that are available in reproduction hardware.

Distinctive tile details in bathrooms and kitchen- Highlighted details will give opportunity to showcase the quality of construction and well thought out design features.

Flooring trends: Texture takes center stage in many new collections, with floor and wall tile designs ranging from naturalistic faux wood grains and petrified woods to sophisticated industrial interpretations of concrete and cement.

The use of wood flooring or wood look tile that has been popular will continue. Realistic renditions of wood are especially prevalent, as more and more suppliers have begun using digital printing to simulate the patina of petrified, aged, or reclaimed wood. A wide range of colors and sizes are available, including squares and traditional wood ‘plank’ forms.

With all of the emphasis on texture, it comes as no surprise that shimmering metallic tones are becoming popular once again, especially when used as decorative embellishments. Gold tones add an air of opulence to any interior environment, and tile makers are offering a wide range of elegant patterns as well as bold, high-profile accents.

Interior spaces:

Themes: “transitional” with a focus still on clean lines and simplicity; “luxe minimalism”

Organic Influences: modern textures combined with old-world and classic elements. Natural Elements Mixed with Contemporary Materials: Contemporary and industrial materials are being mixed with natural materials. Wood, steel and glass are popular combinations. Expect to see modern textures combined with old-world and classic elements. Easy – Edgy – Comfortable Living

Kitchen: The most popular styles for new kitchens are traditional, transitional and contemporary.

Cream and white kitchen cabinet finishes still remain the classic choice followed by shaker or raised panel styles. Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances remain top choices for homeowners.

At John Cannon Homes, kitchens are constructed to complement lifestyle by making the space compatible with family needs in an open floor plan. Storage and entertaining are top priorities with built-in pantry’s, pull-out shelves, counter seating, wine storage.

Get Away Rooms: We see clients wanting to create spaces designed to encourage relaxation, family time or recreation, getting away from everyday life is a trend that will be around for good.

Master baths: With a trend toward spa-like bath retreats, expect large, well-designed tubs to take center stage in the master bath. They will be pulled away from the wall and treated like a piece of art or sculpture.

Wine Rooms and Bars: No longer just for the avid collector, this trend has once again found its way into new and creative spaces within the home.

Lots of outdoor and entertaining space with beautifully designed pool and spa areas and outdoor kitchens with dining areas, and even gazebos off the pool for another “get away space”. Transitional cabana rooms that allow homeowners to grill indoors during inclement weather as can be seen in the accompanying image of The Avianna.
