Interior design trends for 2017

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: February 23, 2017

Spring is coming, and you might be thinking about some redecorating projects to refresh your home. Here are some interior design trends for 2017 to spark your creativity.

It’s trendy to be green. Pantone started the passion for green when it announced “Greenery” as its Color of the Year for 2017. Vibrant shades of green are showing up on walls, in carpets, bedding, linens, and accents.

In addition to the color green, the eco-friendly and natural materials are becoming even more popular. Look for more accessories made from bamboo—which is a highly sustainable plant—wood, cork, and recycled plastic accents. Jute, sisal, and hemp continue to be popular for rugs, for their durability, easy care, and natural look.

Marble is on the move. You can invest in the actual stone—for tabletops, backsplashes, and accessories—or simply go for the look of marble. Wallpaper, decorative boxes, placemats, and linens that are imprinted with the image of marbled veins brings a natural look to any room in your house.

Laundry room clean-up. The purely functional room is getting some decorating attention. Homeowners are adding custom cabinetry and replacing the old, old plastic utility sink with a more appealing stainless steel one and finishing with a vanity. Countertops, like granite and quartz, are also finding their way from the kitchen and bath into the laundry room.

Jewel tones shine. From the walls to the upholstery, the rich hues of jewel tones—amethyst purple, emerald green, sapphire blue, and garnet red—have become a popular design trend for 2017. If you don’t want to make a big change, add pillows, throws, candles, and decorative accents in these colors.

A cushy headrest. The upholstered headboard is the choice of many of today’s leading interior designers when it comes to bedroom décor. The shape, fabric, and color can be matched to any style—from sophisticated to kid-friendly.

In the raw. In keeping with the design trend toward a more natural look, interior décor will feature unfinished metals, like copper and unlacquered brass where the patina changes over time.

Above all, your home should be your personal signature. Your choices create a home that is your haven.
