Expected to be one of the biggest trends in 2017, watch out for green in home decor, fashion, and commercial design. From lime green to emerald, the hue works throughout the home. Green can easily be incorporated into your decor through wall paint or a room filing rug. If you’re not too keen on the idea of using green in large doses, you can scatter a couple of small plants around the house instead.
2. Old and New
As we all know, texture is a huge hit in decor and “Old and New” brings just that. The idea of mixing fabrics, materials, and styles will be on the rise. We’ll be searching for those perfect antiques and curated items that make a space one of a kind. Think of a modern bed frame placed on top of an antique rug, mixing a vintage table with new chairs, a retro contemporary kitchen with an industrial feel. The possibilities are endless!
3. Boho Bedrooms
Boho isn’t considered to be a new trend, but will be a popular one in 2017. Boho spaces are relaxed and effortless, with wall tapestries, greenery and vintage inspired rugs. We will want to incorporate more of these free and flow fabrics into our bedroom this year.
4. Neutral Nurseries
Focusing on neutral colour palette for nurseries isn’t a trend that will be “out” any time soon. Simple, not hard to change up, and easy on the eyes! I foresee a lot of moms wanting to stick to their neutrals regardless of knowing the gender of their baby or not.
There is a definite push for the “less is more” approach in home decor. This trend is all about clean lines, uncluttered functional spaces, and a lot of neutrals.
6. Industrialism, Reinvented
With this trend, think black steel mixed with earthy textures like timber and clay or wooden furnishings with lacquer-finished surfaces. Then add in some stylish elements and textures like a wool throw or faux sheepskin rug. This industrial aesthetic has a raw and stylish edge by incorporating a rustic detail within a modern space.
7. Blue in the Kitchen
Also known as, “navy is the new black” on Pinterest, a pop of blue in the kitchen is the perfect option for our two toned cabinets. Apart of the jewel tones, we’re pulling the blue out of our fabric books and throwing them into our kitchen stools. Blue is listed all across the web as a colour used to suppress appetites. In fact, they say installing a blue l light bulb in your refrigerator discourages your late night munchie craving, or your in between meal snacks.
8. Glass Terrariums
You know how the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree dominated the corners of just about every space we saw in 2016? Well the prediction is that it’s on its way out in favour of different greenery both of the leafy and succulent variety. One option that we will see more of in 2017 is the glass terrarium — a more manageable option for a lot of us that haven’t been blessed with a green thumb.
