It’s a New year! And 2017 is all about these 7 home design and decor trends! So look no further. I’ve got your home decor guide for 2017 covered. Keeping with the following trends will make you a DIY designer in no time. Let’s get started!
- LIGHTING – Refreshing a main light fixture in your home can bring bling and bedazzle to the whole house. If you’re working with limited space, hanging a chandelier can add style and visual appeal with out making the room look cramped. Even in tiny spaces like a walk in closets.
- BUTTERFLIES – Majestic and visually stunning. Butterflies are appearing on everything from wallpaper to area rugs. This butterfly pattern showcases a rainbow of colours and can brighten any room. Butterflies have such a magical presence and are symbolic of both creativity and optimism. This area rug is perfect for nursery or home office!
- SOFT TEXTURES – In most fashion statements, style and look overthrows comfort but NOT in just case. Coming home from a chaotic day and putting your feet up on a lush velvet sofa is like sinking into a warm bubble bath after a long day. More and more designers are incorporating luxuriously soft materials in decor this year, like faux fur and mohair. This blue velvet sofa is a statement piece that does not comprise on comfort!
- RUGS AS ART – Rugs treated as art will be an immediate eye catcher. For homeowners looking to make an impact, rugs become art with rooms being built around them.
- DARK GREEN – In The Great Gatsby the green light represents a dream. To designers this year it’s all about that dark and deep green. I’ve most commonly seen the use of green through a feature wall paper, accent chair, or cushions and decor. It’s commonly mixed with gold and very Gatsby inspired. That’s a lot of G’s. Green/Gold/Gatsby.
- CORK – Commonly used in wine bottles and construction materials. Who knew? But it’s true. For 2017, Cork will be making a comeback because it’s quite versatile. Cork insulates well and is ideal for absorbing noise. Plus, it adds warmth, comfort and awesome texture.
