With 2017 well and truly in full swing, we look at 5 prominent interior design trends taking the year by storm. From natural tones to retro classics, rejuvenate your home with these top tips from industry experts.
‘Pantone’s verdant colour of the year for 2017, Greenery, seems to be an instant hit for those looking for a revitalizing, back-to-nature hue that brings zest while still managing to work with warm wood tones,’ says Mitchell Parker from Houzz. Get creative and inject new life into a space.
Why not take advantage of natural greenery by adding plant life to your bedroom or living room? As well as improving air quality, it creates a more natural, relaxed aesthetic that can increase happiness and reduce stress.
Natural Jewel Tones:
‘Last year welcomed the bold return of art deco-inspired designs, and with them come luxurious jewel tones. Indulge your regal side with rich emerald chairs, bold sapphire walls, and amethyst accents. Pair the designs with neutral, minimal wall colours for a toned-down take on the trend, or go wild and slather your entire living space in vivid colour,’ stated Jamie Wiebe in a recent article for realtor.com.
Graphic Inspired Art:
‘Graphic inspired art will provide a contemporary take on nature over the year ahead. Natural items like pebbles and blades of grass will be given a new lease of life through the playful interaction of graphics and textures,’ according to Warren Lewis from propertyreporter.co.uk. From throws to murals, modern interpretations of nature can add relaxed character to the home and increase happiness.
Textured Glass Lighting:
Housewareslive.net believes that ‘when it comes to lighting, textured glass is unquestionably the way to go. A rough, natural finish created through texture, while retaining the beauty of glass, will further contribute to the natural vibe that will be so evident’ throughout 2017.
‘One of the latest trends to enter the new season for 2017 is the use of cork. Fashionable in the 70s, we’ve seen a quiet resurgence as designers move towards using cork in everyday interiors. It’s a functional, sustainable and practical material and interiors experts are using it in the most creative way. One of the great things about cork is its environmental benefits. As it is created from the bark of the tree it means the tree does not have to be cut down and can continue to live and grow,’ explained Roddy Clarke in a recent article for the Evening Standard. Not only is cork a fashionable material idea that adds warmth and texture to rooms, it’s also perfect for absorbing sound in larger, open plan homes. We say, embrace this retro classic!
