It’s that time of the year again when we, as the design-conscious household owner, prepare to pull out the old decors and let in the new ones. We will then be waving goodbye to 2016 in just a few months, and as we embrace the New Year ahead of us, we want to make sure that our individual household is as prepared as we are for the new year to come.
Just like clothing designs, there are also interior decor trends year after year. Updating your house decorations is not just an excuse to spend on new stuff, but it is also one way to maintain and reevaluate our home. So to begin with, what are the trends that we can expect in 2017?
Embracing a Warmer 2017
This year, cool tones dominate and capture the spotlight. However, in 2017, we will be kissing our white decors goodbye since it’ll be the year of terracotta and its neighboring shades. We probably have seen border tiles made of terracotta in our grandparents’ backyard, so making it as a feature wall in our home may seem like a big leap. That is why experts suggest that you need to give it a natural matte finish to make it suitable for indoors.
Saying Cheers to Corks
Corks are very popular among arts and crafts enthusiasts. Aside from having a warm tone, it also adds texture. In 2017, we can expect a lot of cork in several pieces of furniture such as the cork stools for the kitchen and cork walls for office spaces. Aside from the aesthetic purposes, corks can also be used to absorb noise. This is very useful in the open space houses.
Taking Home the Nomadic Furniture System
In relation to the previous trend, nomadic furniture systems are also expected to make history in 2017. This is in line with the “modular furniture” concept which designers claim to be relevant to the backpackers’ generation. This highly functional furniture system is very practical yet stylish. It makes moving in and out of the house swift and easy.
Saving Spaces for Nooks and Crannies
Nowadays, technology is taking over the majority of our time per day. With this, it pays to have a little space in our house where we can take a break from all the cords and screens. Nook and cranny types of furniture are foreseen to be on the list of interior decor trends in 2017.
Brightening Your Room with Jewels
If pastel colors are gaining attention this 2016, jewel tones will be reigning this 2017. These sparkly materials will definitely make you feel like royalty the whole year round.
