Interior Design Trends For 2017
Jan 20, 2017
It may be hard to believe, but 2017 is officially in full swing, and with it come a whole new set of interior design trends. We take a look at the colours, themes and fabric that will transform your nook this year.
From Pantone’s zesty Greenery to plush forest hues, green will be everywhere in 2017. Symbolic of new beginnings, revitalising green will give your home an instant update. Keep it fresh by mixing with greys, black and white, or embrace a warm colour palette with rich woods and terracotta. If you’re not quite ready to go all out, a few accent pieces will bring you up to speed.
With both designers and consumers becoming ever more eco-conscious, this will be the year that we reconnect with nature. Think bamboo, rattan and untreated wood for a natural element that’s inherently serene. For textiles, wool and cotton take centre stage - our handwoven pouf by Madam Stolz embodies the trend to a T.
Texture promises to be a big theme this year, with design mostly geared toward softness and comfort. Tactile elements make for an inviting interior, and ever-elegant velvet is top of our list. In deep jewel tones, it adds a little hint of luxury, and is perfect for sinking into at the end of the day.
Versatile and sustainable, cork is making a comeback, from stools to walls and everything in between. This natural material adds warmth to any room, and contrasts well with a whole host of colours. Nod to the trend with a contemporary cork board, or if you’re feeling bold try some statement furniture on for size.
Move over DIY, 2017 sees the return of high level craftsmanship. Lovingly made in small amounts, artisan items add a distinct and personal touch to your nook. Invest in some pieces with a story to tell - we love these Kraal Dome Pendants by Dassie Artisan, a collective of craftsmen built on talent and integrity.
