Top interior design trends to look out for in 2017?

Whether you’re selling and want to help your home look its best, or if you’re about to buy and planning those special interior design touches that will turn your house into a real home, keeping up-to-date with what’s hot can help you achieve a stunning look you’ll love.

Expert Interior Design Tips For 2017

According to interior designer Jen Waite, from White Fox Styling, terracotta will be big in 2017 – both as a colour for splashes of interest in everything from cushions to rugs, and as a material for a general desert-feel aesthetic.

It’s all about warm, earthy tones and texture so anything that ticks those boxes will give your property an eye-catching ‘now’ look that is friendly and fun.

Adairs’ recent Moroccan collection reflects this style trend and it’s a good place to start to add fresh style to your home without tackling major refurbishment costs, such as painting walls or changing tile work.


Cool Summer Style

It’s a perfect feel for a long, hot summer and Jen says that other trends to watch include anything natural and unfussy.

Think the comeback of cork – “it’s expected to be big”, Jen says – and look for matte brass colours to replace rose gold and copper.

“Greens will also be big – and jewel colours, as well,” says Jen.

One of the other trends to look out for is dark timbers taking over from the blonde timbers that have been so popular in recent renovations and new property development.

It’s all about rich, deep warmth for an accent with a difference.

Other interior trending tips to keep an eye on include:

A move away from Carrara marble as the desire for all things dark takes over. Warmer tones in marble will be more popular and other materials, including onyx and silver travertine will be sought after for benchtops.


Extraordinary Interior Design

Everyday ordinary materials will enjoy some celebration – expect to see plywood and even chipboard on proud display.

Once smooth patterns will turn towards more texture, with less structured looks adding a more organic feel to interior finishes.

A need to achieve some digital detox is set to see a resurgence in craft trends as interior style pieces, with a nod towards slow and low technology as a deliberate step away from our fast-paced lifestyles.


Explore Fresh Style That Makes You Feel Good

True interior design style is always about taking risks and experimenting with new looks. Creating a home that is comfortable and makes you feel happy should always been your prime motivation.
