Our four 2017 design predictions
A new year means plenty of opportunity to shake things up a little in your home. If you’re looking to tweak, refresh or renovate your space, here are some tips to help you introduce the incoming design trends. ‘Character’, ‘warmth’ and ‘organic’ are three words that really sum up the looks we’ll see in interiors this year. Let us explain…
1. Warm timber
While blonde timber has been all the go in recent times, warmer tones are now taking over. Similarly, there are moves towards darker and richer tones of marble, instead of the whites and soft greys we’ve been used to. So expect to see darker, more organic looking bathrooms and kitchens in the year ahead.
It may seem surprising, but the colour of the 80s is on the return. Terracotta tiles will be replacing cool, white variations. Rather than a glossy finish, matte will be the feature. Try this look in bathrooms, kitchens and hallways for a unique and warm statement.
Say ‘goodbye’ to the Scandinavian, minimal, timber aesthetic for bed frames and chairs and ‘hello’ to opulent, upholstered furnishings. Whether it’s classic linen trimmed with studs or buttons, luxe velvet or detailed jacquard, upholstery is making a come back in a big way.
4. Relaxed floor plans
Finally, for 2017, think free-flowing floor plans over structure and formality. With more of our lives being digitalised and segmented, interior design is moving to a more organic approach than we’ve seen in recent years.
