Top Design Trends in 2017
The Modern Vintage
Have worn out furniture? Way to be ahead of the game!
Everything from redesigned antique tables to updated art deco chairs will be raging in 2017. Let’s face it. Times are tough. We can’t all afford to buy a new dinner set every year. Work with what you’ve got! Refinishing, reupholstering, and repurposing are in.
Open-space living may still be enjoying its time in the sun, but more people are craving the comfort of the nook.
Experts at Houstonia claim escapism is coming for dealing with digital devices. But let’s be real. What’s more comfy and cozy than curling up with your smartphone?
A Natural Touch
Perhaps in the effort to feel de-digitized, all aspects of design are heading back to nature. We’re talking earthy hues, the warmth of terracotta tiles, wooden bedframes, and molding stained in natural colors.
Metals and Gilding
While copper and cheap-looking brass is out, rougher metals are swooping in. Silver and nickel create a more industrial look, harkening to a more simple time.
Contrasting nicely with the slim and ultra-shiny design of technology, rougher metals add an element of strength and security to a home.
How can we be truly all natural without incorporating the sky? Inspired by the stars and the spark of life, we’ll be seeing an uptrend in ultra decorative cabinet knobs, dinnerware, and lighting fixtures. Wow. Getting back to nature feels so… romantic!
But do you know what’s really in style?
Whatever suits your fancy! It’s always fun to be inspired by new (and old) ideas. But let’s not get carried away.
