As we begin to settle into 2017, now seems like the perfect time to check out the décor trends that will be making an appearance throughout the year, and those that we won’t be seeing much more of now 2016 has come to a close.
Goodbye copper, hello cork
While copper has been a staple of 2016, this won’t continue through 2017. The metallic décor trend that we have seen so much of will instead be replaced by a different texture, and one that isn’t quite so shiny.
Cork is the tipped trend for 2017, and we don’t mean just the odd corkboard for bits and bobs either. The texture is ideal to add depth and warmth to a home, especially in larger spaces.
Marble’s out, botanical is in
Marble has certainly been the pattern of the year. From kitchen worktops to home office decoration, we’ve seen marble pop up just about everywhere. Unfortunately, this doesn’t look set to last.
Instead, a different print will be hitting the limelight for the next year; botanical. Whether you choose a leafy wallpaper or simply frame some of your favourite pressed flowers, you’ll surely find the perfect way to bring botanical into your home.
A modular take on open plan
Open plan may be the space saving miracle of the decade, but 2017 will see it shaken up a little. While open plan allows rooms to bleed into one another and create an inclusive feel regardless of if you’re in the kitchen or dining room, this will be pushed further with the use of modular furniture.
This means you’ll be able to move furniture around and is ideal for those who move a lot and won’t always have the space for a grand dining table.
Big furniture is gone, space rules
As modular furniture makes its entrance, large pieces of furniture are swiftly being shown the door. Furniture that dominates a room has been a focal point for homes in 2016, but as we head into 2017 this is set to change.
Instead, overwhelming furniture will be replaced by either modular furniture or furniture that simply suits your home (and is the correct size). Space is even more important this year, so the more you have of it, the better.
No more pastel, but plenty of green
While ‘Rose Quartz’ and ‘Serenity’ were the pantone colours that paved the way for a pastel 2016, it’s a new year, which means a fresh colour. For 2017 ‘Greenery’ is the colour that will rule, and that we will subsequently see in home décor trends.
‘Greenery’ fits in perfectly with the botanical theme we’ll also see popping up later in the year. It’s a versatile colour that you can incorporate into many colour schemes, so don’t feel like you have to change everything! You can get the ‘Greenery’ colour palette here.
