As the world gets more chaotic and technical, 2017 will see us hunt for something more real and natural as we reflect far more on what we consume and where our products are from. Take a look at these 2017 interior design trends for your new years inspiration:
Scandinavian style is here to stay, but 2016’s cutesy will be replaced by graphic contemporary in 2017.
Traditional whites or soft grey woods complimented with worn tan leather and natural wood will keep your décor on trend. For the brave among you – adding a dark wall will really set this look off!
Earthy shades are in fashion, bold yet understated, providing a sense of honesty to our homes – think sandy beige, rusty reds, oranges and deep green tones.
Furniture that is slim, clean and has minimal lines will be a staple this year.
Think – sofas, chairs and side tables with light and slick skinny legs; then juxtapose with fabrics and materials of your choice (see #3).
Emerald, ruby and sapphire blend exquisitely with violet shades.
Choose plush pile fabrics such as velvet which is traditional yet surface detailed to compliment your minimal line furniture.
It’s time to move away from square and rectangular mirrors – round or oval oversized mirrors are IN!
On the topic of mirrors… grouping a selection of mirrors together (as many as possible) makes rooms feel larger and adds an impressive feature.
Match cabinet wood to a detail on the wall behind and paint them the same statement colour for a new look. Surfaces should be matte – gloss surfaces and woodwork are out this year (yes, even in the kitchen)!
Forget square and rectangular tiles this year and turn your attention to hexagonal tiles or metro tiles set in a herringbone design.
For fixtures and fittings, think beyond chrome taps – brass, copper and black give a unique new look.
Happy New Year from Concept Designs – we hope you enjoy your home in 2017!
