As the weather continues to change dramatically with the winter solstice approaching, we begin to crave the feeling of coziness and warmth in our homes. While this can be accomplished with the addition of some big, fluffy blankets on the sofa, the colours and design elements we bring into our rooms can also help us feel warm as soon as we step inside. Before you rush out and start purchasing new décor or selecting interior finishes, consider incorporating some of these top design and décor trends for 2017 into your home to help spice up your interior design and decor.
Metal, Jewel and Transparency Tones
The trend that we are going to see is jewel tones inspired by metallics, raw-cut quartz, Opal, and Lucite to add interest and shimmer to a room. The use of transparent fabrics, silks and sheers will also create an airy romantic element to this trend.
Rustic Design Elements
Natural wood accents is an easy way to bring some of the cozy feel into your home. Take a look at decorative branches in metal vases and centerpieces for a modern, yet rustic design element. If you are looking to make a big change in your space, adding decorative rustic barn beams to the ceiling or even exposed trusses on a vaulted ceiling will do just that in the trends we will see in 2017.
Fireplace, Feature Walls and Floor Tiles
Remember the travel days to Mexico when all the hotels had terracotta tile? Well this is making a comeback on fireplaces, feature walls and floor tiles. Terracotta and rustic slate tile is back and adding them to a room will instantly add warmth and comfort with the new trends coming. If you already forgot about cork, it’s time to remember it again! Cork will also be inspiring designs for 2017 with cork feature walls that add the look and complete functionality to a home with family members on separate schedules.
New Headboard Bed Designs
Wood headboards are set to change with upholstered headboards coming and yes, you heard that correctly. Plush and velvets will accentuate the metal and transparency tones in the bedroom creating a feeling of lightness with the new look.
