Created: 21/01/2016

It is every homeowner’s dream to decorate their home to the highest of standards, creating unique interior designs that will leave guests green with envy. Home interior design platform Houzz has now revealed the best of the best after naming the most followed and shared aspirational images on its image board, giving budding interior enthusiasts an overwhelming amount of ideas for 2016.


Houzz have honoured the builders and architects behind the images with a Best Of Houzz Award for their jaw-dropping designs. Although top fashion brands such as Versace and Fendi are starting to emerge as the top inspirational interior designers, it seems a more casual vibe is highly desired when it comes to colour scheme and furniture. Here are the designs that have been hailed as the top interiors of 2016:

Traditional Approach
