Here are my top trends and tips for interior design in 2017:
Navy is definitely a colour to watch out for in early 2017. If you want to incorporate the navy look into your home you could start with small accessories such as cushions or throws, or if you want to go all out you could paint a statement piece of furniture such as a sideboard in a navy shade.
Copper has been huge in interior design for many years and will continue into 2017. The trend is extremely easy to incorporate into your own home. The most popular way to do this is by installing copper lighting fixtures. Vintage style bulbs on copper stands are huge right now and look great in the corner of the room, or you can have lighting hanging from copper wiring/piping over the dining table to create a real atmosphere.
Little bursts of colour work really well in the home and this is a good way to start incorporating mustard gently into your home in 2017 without going overboard. Look for cushions, blankets, lampshades and even curtains with mustard elements or patterns.
Retro and vintage products will continue to be popular in 2017 and up-cycling is a trend we heartily encourage, whether you DIY or pop in and ask us for help. It’s all about working with what you have, buying appropriately and being individual. Take a good look at the furniture you already have at home and before thinking about getting something new to replace a piece, why not ask yourself a few candid questions. Could you use it somewhere different to greater effect? Could it benefit from a lick of paint and new door handles? All food for thought!
2017 is not all about making big investments but more about selecting some new accessories, fabrics and cushions that hit the right note. And the emphasis is very much, this season, on making our homes practical as well as relaxing. When it comes to painting, embrace muted shades of blue, green, purple, mushroom and pink. For those who want a little more clout in their colours, look out for the primary trend of red, blue and yellow.
