Interior designers from across the country converge twice a year at the High Point Market for an exclusive sneak peek at the latest home décor styles. Here’s a look at a few of the top trends you can expect to see popping up in homes across the country in 2017!
Indigo is making waves as the “it” color this year. Whether it’s accessories, rugs, accent tables or throws, this timeless hue has been transformed with a fresh, contemporary look. By utilizing new dying techniques, a whole new range of tones and textures are now available.
In addition to textiles, this shade is also adding a bit of glamour to accessories and furniture when it’s paired with a high gloss finish. Whether it’s used as a dramatic focal point in a room, or combined with flax or gold, this new look is sure to turn heads and create a one-of-a-kind design statement.
Crystal clear objects are adding an unexpected element of transparency to furniture and accessories. This new trend can be seen on everything from wall sconces to glass table tops to Lucite legs on a coffee table. This look instantly adds drama to any space by lifting the visual weight and raising the eye to effectively utilize positive and negative space. In addition, this unique look isn’t just for modern furnishings, it also pairs well with classic silhouettes and designs.
While recent trends have focused more on feminine details and crisp, white upholstery, this year’s lines are all about adding warmth and masculine details. Think classic lines of a tailored leather chair with rich top stitching or the unexpected element of a structured hexagonal lighting to your home. Other ways to incorporate this style include a side board with burled wood or an ottoman donning contrasting-colored nail heads that add a strong presence with decorative elements and details.
Gone are the days of elaborate designs and adornments used throughout the home. Instead, simplicity is back with pure shapes, especially the circle, taking center stage in many rooms. Décor and furnishings are now serving double-duty as art, with show-stopping tabletop items, accent pieces or lighting that add a contemporary flair to interiors.
Sultry tones, lush fabrics and rich jewel tones are also making a comeback in 2017. Once reserved only for traditional styling, this look is now popping up on contemporary and modern pieces, too. Consider adding a metal lamp base to your space, along with a rich fabric like velvet in a saturated hue such as lily pad green on your sofa. These luxurious touches will add a bit of grandeur throughout your home – whether it’s a vase on your bookshelf or a rug with maroon, gold and eggplant hues.
Keep your home in style by finding ways to integrate these new trends that will instantly freshen up your décor!
