For many, a new year provides a clean slate for home design and to get things refreshed for the year to come. Here’s a round-up of some of the hottest design trends for 2017.
Pantone, known for its color matching system and industry color trend predictions says 2017 is the year of Greenery, a yellow-green shade that takes its cue from the environment. Other hot colors include earthy shades like Kale and Hazelnut, a warm nude, in addition to splashy shades like Lapis Blue, a vivid jewel tone and Flame, a fiery orange.
For the new super-saturated colors, you can add bright colors to a ceiling, or with a lacquered piece of furniture, giving the space an unexpected surprise that’s easy to swap out.
From brass and chrome, silver and polished nickel, antique brass and oil-rubbed bronze, metals are a perfect mix of both industrial and minimalist design. With accessories like lamps, vases, trays, and pendants, there are many ways to incorporate metallic sheen into your decor.
Brass, chrome, and black lacquer can all look great in the same space if done right. Or the blend of different finishes of the same material, such as matte gold and metallic gold, work well together. This works well in kitchens (faucets, cabinetry, hardware, shelving—even wine racks).
Terracotta and cork aren’t always the first materials that come to mind for finishes, but both are becoming more popular for interior accents, as they add a stylish warmth and texture to spaces. Cork is becoming popular with small furniture bases and makes a creative accent wall – it absorbs noise!
Polished, high-lacquered wood continues to be an emerging trend for 2017 that offers a tailored look. There’s also growing popularity of using sleek, lacquered painted furniture in living spaces and bedrooms.
