Are you planning for a remodel or renovation next year? Trend forecasters are already predicting the next color trends, fashion trends, and interior design trends. Incorporating a few of these trends into your remodel or renovation can help your interior stay ahead of the curve. Here are a few interior trends that interior designers are predicting will be big in 2017.
Cool, white tones may be in now, but next year will see a turn towards warm, earthy tones. When you think of terracotta tiles, you may think of the rustic terracotta tiles that were used as border tiles in the 80s. This old trend is going to have a new, modern twist by having a natural matte finish instead. Lauren Macer of Sisalla Interior Design predicts that natural matte terracotta tiles will be used “as feature walls in bathrooms or for cladding fireplaces.”
Dark, Mysterious Colors
Are you wondering what color theme to include in your new kitchen? Many paint companies are revealing their choices for 2017 Color of the Year, and most picks seem to be dark, moody colors that lend subtle sophistication to a space.
Benjamin Moore’s pick for 2017 Color of the Year is the sultry Shadow 2117-30. This smokey purple is reminiscent of the dark and dramatic colors of classic works from Rembrandt and Vermeer.
For a lighter option, Sherwin William’s has chosen SW 6039 Poised Taupe as their 2017 Color of the Year. This beautiful brown is the perfect balance of warm and cool. The color is a balanced mixture of earthen brown and conservative grey, creating an atmosphere that feels both rustic and cozy. This neutral color is a great addition to a quiet office or library.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed by technology? Need somewhere to relax after a long day? Nooks are predicted to grow in popularity next year as quiet spaces to escape. Whether it is a simple breakfast nook to have a quiet meal or a reading nook to do some uninterrupted studying, little nooks and places of comfort are expected to become more common in American homes. It follows that plush, comfortable furniture will also be popular in these spaces that are designed for relaxing.
