If you like to stay ahead of the curve in terms of fashions, then you can’t really go wrong with knowing the hottest up and coming trends for home design, especially if you’re looking all the way forward to 2017.
If that sounds like a good thing for you to know, then you are most definitely in luck. We have communicated with the best of the best and feel we are in the perfect position to tell you all you need to know about 2017’s big hitters.
Let’s go take a look!
Earthy Pastels and Terracotta
If you’re looking for the latest and greatest in colour schemes, this is it: earthy pastel colours. Think organic and think springtime, like lavender and its ilk. You want to be looking out for muted colours, colours with a more feminine weight to them, colours that are above all clean.
Pair these with some nice terracotta shades, an earthy partner if there ever was one. It seems like the days of endless white and magnolia walls may be finally coming to an end, with lovely and warm terracotta looking to step up.
Not that you need to go all out just yet, though – even a simple throw would do the trick!
Mixing up the Metals
Now, brass and gold aren’t going anywhere, so there’s no need to panic just yet. In fact, brass and gold are just as strong and popular as ever – you don’t have to tear everything down, not for 2017 at least – but they are being joined by some more metals to really liven up the party.
Polished nickels and silvers are making a comeback in a big way, especially when used to accent a room or even a particularly rich piece of furniture. Unusually, there is a new finish arriving on the scene: white plaster. Plaster itself isn’t that durable, so expect to see a lot of resin finishes that are made to look like white plaster. It adds a nice organic touch to the metals.
Proof Those Fabrics
These days, it seems as though designers are finally cottoning on to the fact that furniture is actually made to be used. So for this reason, you should expect to be able to find all sorts of fantastic, designer label furniture in 2017, with the difference being that it will be made using stain resistant fabrics. Clearly, this is big news for anyone who wants their home to look the very best while still heading up a household of potentially mucky pups.
That’s right – you can actually have the best of both worlds! Seriously, even Jean-Louis Deniot are producing a velvet sofa that uses a polyester blend. You’d never be able to tell the difference, except for the fact that you won’t experience that annoying “crush” that velvet sometimes gets. Ladies and gentlemen, your prayers have been answered.
