From weird color combinations to grandmother chic: our predictions for the interiors trends that will define 2016. 1. Grandmother Chic Above: We're obsessed with the needlepoint headboard at the Durslade Farmhouse in Somerset, England. 2. Shield Shapes  Above: Shield shapes are making a splash, from mirrors to cutting boards. 3. Artisanal Architectural Hardware  Above: Beyond the plastic switchplate: One-off architectural hardware is a trend we're rooting for; see more at Architectural Hardware from a Japanese Artisan . 4. Caned Furniture Above: Alexa, our resident trend spotter, says caned furniture is the next big thing, as in this caned headboard at the soon-to-open boutique  Hotel Panache in Paris. 5. Showroom as Apartment Above: The future of retail? The Fritz Hansen showroom in Milan offers an immersive, homelike experience, as does  The Apartment by the Line in Los Angeles. 6. Pegboard Storage Above: Did Julia Child start it all? Pegboard storage systems are cropping up in kitchens everywhere, including this one by Position Collective in Budapest. We're on board. 7. Online Upstarts Above: Following in the footsteps of Warby Parker and Everlane, companies such as  Casper , Snowe , and Greycork are cutting out the middlemen and marketing directly to consumers. 8. The Second Coming of Donald Judd Above: Sculptor Donald Judd's residence/studio at 101 Spring Street is inspiring a new generation of minimalists to think outside the box; see more at A Modern Daybed, Hand-Dyed Shibori Included .  9. Low-Profile Appliances Above: Recessed ceiling-mounted vent (see more at Remodeling 101: Ceiling-Mounted Recessed Kitchen Vents ). 10. Patterned Tile in the Kitchen Above: Ahead-of-the-curve LA design group Commune adds a dash of pattern to a Paris kitchen. 11. Textile Art Above: Beyond macramé: A felted wool piece by Ashley Helvey at Lord Stanley in SF. 12. Cabin Fever Above: This year's best seller Cabin Porn  feeds our obsession with tiny rustic dwellings. 13. The Daybed Above: When London-based arts phenom Max Lamb designs a daybed, it's time to take notice. 14. Weird Color Combinations Above: Mustard yellow and pink? Somehow it works at the Fritz Hansen showroom in Milan. 15. Pastel Sanitary Ware Above: Spotted recently: pastel bath and kitchen sinks; shown above, a bath by  UDA Architetti in Milan. 16. Curved Stairways Above: Vincent Van Duysen started it: The Cult of the Curvy Staircase . See all of our Trend Alerts here .
