Fresh from the Future: 2017 Interior Trends for the Home October 10 2016, 0 Comments
2016 is not over yet, but we see 2017 slowly peeking around the corner. In a blink of an eye, we're starting over again. But before that happens, wouldn't it be nice to be armed and ready for the many changes coming your way? Take for example your interior decor. We've listed our favourite 2017 interior trends that will sweep modern home interiors, and these styles may be just the thing for your next remodel.
New ideas spring up every year, but most of them are old time classics, resurfacing in making a comeback--for a reason. One great example is terracotta. The warm, earthen colour from this common construction material has become one of the top 2017 interior trends to hit the market. What makes it so special? Its contemporary matte finish adds a contemporary glamour to any facade. Designer forecast shows that it will be a popular item for feature walls, such as fireplaces and bathrooms.
Here at Fat Shack Vintage, we celebrate the beauty of terracotta by pairing it with a dapper lighting object made from the same material. Our Terracotta Pendant by NUD can easily make a design statement with its modern ceiling cup and socket in minimalist, Swedish flavour. Hang it bare and infuse the terracotta look in your home in a breeze.
It's not just terracotta that's making a return, but cork is too. This traditional material is not just limited to making mood boards and floor mats. When used inside the room, it adds a cosy, homely feel, thanks to its alluring texture and absorbing capabilities. Not only does it suck in moisture, but it helps block out noise, making it a great decor choice for open plan spaces. Many designers are discovering its great use, as side tables, stools or combined with marbly stone tops. Offices can maximize cork as a wall cladding wherein one can conveniently affix their notes.
What could be the best thing to match your terracotta interior? Something green. Shower your empty spaces with rows of potted plants for a lusher corner. A much preferred tone, however, is something of a darker tone, bringing our decor back to nature where it can be perfectly complemented by brass lamps, leather textiles and even wintery furs. The dark green hue gives the space a decadent, organic feel. Use it as an accent colour to add a sense of bejewelled charm. Our suggestion? How about a new lighting object? We've listed our most loved green industrial lights you can integrate in your room.
Move over whites and brights; dark is taking over, and it’s for a good cause. Moody colours of wood take the spotlight in 2017 interior trends. Because sand and mutes are looking stale, designers are opting for richer, fuller tones; like dark timber and deep red oaks. You can easily pair it with another 2017 design favourite: deep greens and terracotta.
Artisan, handmade textiles are slowly taking over the regular retail fabrics. People are looking for something more organic, something which reflects the raw and natural beauty of the composition. Thus, don't be surprised to see brilliant tactical patterns making a surge. Another thing to take note of: fabric headboards are making a comeback, and you might just one to start covering yours. Of course, you can always infuse your interior with something nostalgic and vintage—easily get away with a handsome pendant light or a minimalist piece of furniture and voila, you’re ready for 2017.
