Trends, are by definition “a general direction in which something is developing or changing.” Like the people who inhabit them homes are a developing, ever-changing canvas. We like to think of trends as guidelines or suggestions. Some suit you and some do not, some are timeless and some certainly go out of style. We are always excited about trends because they tell us a lot about the world and people. If you are building a new home or renovating your current home, look out for the following trends to include for 2017.
Terracotta! The world of tiles is filled with a fascinating array of colors, patterns, styles, finishes, and of course, textures. The tile that you select can often determine more of your home design. A timeless classic that is reminiscent of gorgeous Spanish Revival interiors is the terracotta tile. Terracotta creates a special feeling of warmth and hominess that other mediums do not.
Cork! This is a naturally decorative and modern alternative to traditional coverings. Cork is available in a variety of styles, patterns and shades to compliment a variety of décor or furniture styles. We are seeing cork used for remarkably fun wall or ceiling covering, creating a unique ascetic in any room. Cork comes in tile or roll form and can be utilized in a large format or for smaller accents.
Jewel Tones! 2017 is all about embracing your royal side with deep jewel tones like teal, turquois, deep blue, rich purple and emerald green. The more traditional light and neutral colors are certainly pleasing and calming but a palate of rich jewel tones can make any room feel like it belongs in a palace. These luscious hues can be used for full wall color or just a pop to take your home to the next level.
Fancy Headboards! Think luxury hotel … The headboard is a charming design detail in any bedroom. It is not imperative to have one but can be a beautiful central focal point. Fabric upholstered headboards are a relatively affordable way to add serious impact to the bedroom. They create a soft and inviting look and are open to many style interpretations. If drama isn’t your thing, keep it simple, crisp, clean and modern. However, do not be afraid to go BOLD in 2017, a large, luxurious fabric headboard is right on trend.
