Hello! Today I thought I’d put a post together on some interior design trends I see making a splash in 2017. I’m getting in early! Just my opinion though. Of course, you can perceive interiors however you like, but I am seeing these patterns/colours/styles pop up lately and my gut tells me we’ll be crushing hard. Expect to see richer colours, more natural wood and artisanal goodies. Out with the copper and marble, I’m afraid! I didn’t really go with either of those trends, so I am happy 🙂 I am off to buy some terracotta garden pots while they are still so cheap at Bunnings. Ha!
Here are some of the trends…
It was really hard for me to find a terracotta photo I liked because I’m not quite there with this idea yet! Ha. I’ll come round no doubt, but I find it hard to believe it’s coming back in. I do love the rustic terracotta garden pots, but can you believe the colour is coming back in – in the way of tiles? Then I hear copper is going out, so maybe we’ll be doing the matte black, timber and terracotta mixed together? Add in some greenery and that would work.
Blonde wood has really taken over – we’ve been madly sanding everything in sight. But maybe you should hold on to your darker furniture because it’s on the rise again! 2017 could see the resurgence of richer and darker tones.
Abagail Ahern has been doing dark forever and I am obsessed with her home.
What a gorgeous colour. So rich and works perfectly with the dark timbers mentioned above. It feels old and decadent. The metallic trend is also working well with this colour.
Well the desert trend certainly goes well with the darker green and terracotta colours so it makes sense that it would be hot right now. This can include prints, cacti and Morrocan patterns.
Simple fabric bedheads
We’ll be bringing the fabric back and replacing the timber. I’d kill for a Heatherly Design bedhead in my house. A neatly covered beadhead in a colour will be a winner in 2017.
See what I did here? Killed two birds with one stone – the green AND the bedhead 😉
People are looking for more sustainable furniture and interior ideas. Reusing, repurposing and upcycling will remain a key element. We live in a world immersed in technology and disposable items so people are looking for a balance.
Think of tactical patterns like embroidery, felt, knitting, crochet. More handmade items look like they will be prominent in homes (not crafty things as such, but more unique artisanal items).
What do you think? Would you go for these trends?
Or what are some others you think might pop up?
