06 Jan 5 Interior Design Trends to Look for in 2017
It’s time for another 2017 prediction post! This time, we’re talking all about interior design trends to look out for in the coming year.
Interior Design Trends
It’s important to stay on top of design trends so that you can impress your clients (or guests) with modern and up-to-date rooms. We have scoured the web and have compiled the top 5 interior design trends that will take over in 2017.
Minimalist design will be huge in 2017. Clean lines, empty space, and lots of “breathing room” will be the new trend. “Minimalist living” as a whole is becoming more and more popular, especially with books such as “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up” By Marie Kondo being so influential.
Emerald, Amethyst, Black Onyx, and Jade are just a few of the jewel tones that will be taking over in 2017. We will see bright, bold colors being replaced by subdued jewel tones as accent pieces or focal points. Bed frames, couches, and rugs are all great places to add in some jewel tones.
Dark metals such as wrought iron will be replacing brighter metals such as copper in 2017. Dark metals provide a more modern flare and go beautifully with the minimal design trend. Utilize dark metals with marble counter tops for an ultra-modern look. Coffee tables, chairs, and lighting fixtures are great places to showcase your on-trend metals.
This is a new trend even for us! Matte appliances such as slate not only produce a great design aesthetic, but they are functional as well. They are fingerprint and smudge-proof, easy to clean, yet still magnetic like traditional appliances. The best part? The top appliance companies carry them.
Smart Home Features
It’s about time that we start integrating “smart” into our homes. Our lives are revolving more and more around our devices, and our homes need to keep up! Big brands such as IKEA have already started integrating their pieces with technology, and we expect to see this trend explode in 2017.
