A New Year Means New Trends

Finding a new home with hot, upcoming design trends can be difficult, but not impossible. Here are some key, desirable design trends to look for in your search for a new home.

Top Interior Design Trends for 2017
• Escapism and analogue workshops rise in popularity – The fast-paced lives many people live is beginning to take a toll and now more people than ever are switching to escapism.1 This trend focuses on incorporating slow, minimalist technology with old crafts and imperfect forms that give us a break from the screens our eyes are glued to every day.

Workbenches and areas are making a resurgence, allowing users to combine office and crafting spaces when a computer screen becomes too much. They provide opportunities to focus and develop other skills as well.

Earthy pastels are making a comeback – Along with escapism, earthy pastel hues are making their way into color schemes again. The more time we spend indoors, the more people clamor for the outside. Incorporating earth pastels, especially organic colors like lavender, soft pinks and greens, harken the coming of spring, bringing the outdoors into our indoor-oriented lifestyles.

Glamorous jewel tones and metallic will shine – Shiny jewel tones catch peoples’ eyes with colors inspired by metals, space, stars and the cosmos. Rich lusters and shades of metallic, raw-cut quartz, Lucite and opal convey opulence and can add a much-needed sparkle to any space. Unlike the tacky metallic fashion choices seen in clothing in the early 2000s, metallic and jewel tone fabrics for furniture are safe bets.

Recycle, recycle, recycle – Sustainability is here to stay with more people than ever purchasing reusable and recyclable furniture. Reusing, repurposing and up-cycling existing furniture is an important aspect of future living. Avoid purchasing furniture that will have to be discarded due to the materials used in construction.

Forget focusing on period pieces and antiques – While a period or antique piece can add some great character, those pieces don’t need to dictate the thematic design of a room or your home.2 Abstain from designing your whole home around just one or a few of these pieces and instead make them focal pieces in your main design to serve as a reminder of times past and to serve as a transition to where our culture is now in terms of art and design.

Bring your kitchen to the matte – Matte appliances are surging in popularity, making bold statements without being in your face. Matte provides an unexpected finish for objects that we commonly see covered or laminated in gloss finishes.

Take your kitchen to the subway – Subway tile, commonly seen in England’s and France’s metro systems, is surprisingly making its way into American design elements. The unexpected look makes for a great feature in farmhouse kitchens, blending modern and traditional elements. It’s a fantastic choice for any aesthetic, budget or lifestyle and comes in a variety of different colors and finishes.
