Add cheery pops of color to a home in 2017. However, how you paint your interior is heavily influenced by your home’s layout as well as personal taste. Homeowners not in love with bright green can go for other hues such as emerald and lime green. It is not necessary to use large doses of green and an easy suggestion is adding fun emerald glasses to complement white plates.
Neutrals and muted colors are still a mainstay. Homeowners not interested in bright colors or patterns can still maintain a stylish and more subdued space with pale grays, beiges, whites, blush pink and camel.
First seen in fall fashion runways, mixed patterns made their way into the home space. In order to make use of this concept without feeling overwhelmed, pick a piece, such as a comforter, to anchor a room and unite different colors and elements in a space. Tropical prints have been getting noticed and it is simple to incorporate the trend with throw pillows in the fabric.
Budget-Friendly Faux Finishes
Designers and homeowners are using faux materials for a budget-friendly alternative to authentic materials. Engineered quartz can stand up better than Carrara marble to heat and acidic foods. Faux foliage and faux leather counters are also making their way into living spaces.
Texture continues to be attractive in home interior design. Liven up a neutral living or bedroom space with various textures and by mixing fabrics. Texture can add interest to a space even when the majority of elements have a neutral or muted palette. Texture is being used in light fixtures, fabrics, wallpapers and brushed brass tables. Here we’ve used colorful pillows over our Larssen bed to add more practical texture to the bedroom as the season gets cooler.
Marble and Brass
Classic and contemporary homes can make use of marble and brass in baths and kitchens in 2017. Homeowners appear to like the combination of natural materials with a glamorous and hard metal. Such materials, with proper installation and maintenance, can provide many years of use to homeowners.
In 2017, designers are using uniquely crafted furniture in their interior designs. Homeowners want well-made furniture that serves as an investment. Purchase a finely crafted piece directly from an artisan or shop for antique pieces to add flavor to spaces such as a reading nook or entryway.
