top 3: 2017 home design trends

Only 4 more days until we ring in the New Year. In home design, white & gray continued to trend as well as shiplap, industrial type pieces and subway tile. What will 2017 home design bring?

1. Terracotta

Terracotta will make a comeback by warming white and neutral spaces with its reddish-orange earth tones. Matte finish tiles in hexagonal shapes or laid in unique patterns will be a new statement maker in the upcoming year.

2. Colors – Green and Blue

More natural hues that evoke a sense of serenity and calm will be on trend for the upcoming year. With all that is going on in life and in the world this is not at all surprising. The Pantone Color Institute states, “The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world.” For this reason Pantone has dubbed “Greenery” the 2017 color of the year. The color choice is symbolic of our need for reflection and a slower pace.

Blue, in particular Navy and Cobalt blues are also expected to make wide appearances in home decor in 2017.

3. Escape spaces

We will continue to see spaces and corners away from digital distraction designed into our homes. Reading corners, craft rooms, tranquil bedrooms – spaces where we can spend less time in front of a screen and more time relaxing will become ever more popular.
