With a new year comes a new set of interior design trends to watch out for, and 2017 is no different. For interior designers and DIY home decorators alike, here is a look at some modern and contemporary interior design trends to watch out for in 2017.
Green, green, and more green
With Pantone deeming the “zesty yellow-green” hue called “Greenery” 2017’s color of the year, it will be of no surprise to see green taking over the design world this year. Pantone writes that the hue will “provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for” in 2017. You may very well see green take the place of navy blue as the go-to “non-neutral neutral” color this year.
With the Danish word “hygge” (pronounced “hue-gah,” referring to a general ambiance of coziness) rising as a major buzzword last year, 2017 looks like it might be the year that cozy, upholstered beds really stake their claim. Upholstered beds can come in a variety of fabrics, including linen weave and soft leather. See our Ronaldo, Elise, Pavo, and Dalia beds for some stunning examples.
Raw, earthy textures
Polished materials such as copper and marble have had a long run in the spotlight, but 2017 could be the year that more and more interior designers turn to more raw, earthy textures. Materials like timber and clay are going to shine bright. Our V Table and Utah Coffee Table are two furniture pieces that capture this trend perfectly.
Many interior designers are predicting that softer metals like copper are on their way out, with bolder metals light bright gold coming in to take their place. Metals like brass, bronze, and chrome are also expected to remain popular. Mixing metals will continue to be strong too as metal trends remain in flux. Unique metals (like black stainless steel for appliances) will likely grow in popularity as well.
Technology continues to dominate the everyday life of the modern individual, and this only creates a more intense desire to create minimalist spaces where people can escape from the demands of technology. Bedrooms and living room spaces where people can stow technology away and enjoy a nice retreat are going to be bigger than ever. Think grown-up reading nooks as well. If you’re looking to update your home for 2017, reducing clutter is a great place to start.
