5 tips on how to accomplish the 2017 Interior Design Trends

The summer holidays are a great opportunity to wind down poolside, arm yourself with a refreshment, and catch up on the industry news. By now you’ve most likely read about the interior design trends that are expected to hit our shores in 2017.

So, with the holidays now over, and the year in full swing, we decided to look at some of the popular trends that are expected to be hitting our restaurants, offices and homes this year, and examples of how these can be accomplished.

 

Green, Green and Shades of Green

Green is the colour of 2017. It’s important to not overuse it and instead splash shades of green as an accent colour to bring vibrancy to a room. The versatility of green can be used to deliver an array of moods.

Dark and emerald green can provide an authentic, earthy antique look.

Terracotta

Yes, it’s back, and not only for outdoor tiles or planting pots. Terracotta is expected to make a comeback in our interiors in 2017.

By combining bright statement pieces, Terracotta tiles can be brought back to modern times.

Escapism

Open plan living has dominated our homes, and also offices, in recent times. However, there has been a definitive shift in Escapism, or rooms designed to provide privacy.

The use of smaller or multifunctional furniture can help ensure the room does not look cluttered.

Rooms designed around modular pieces can also ensure that every square inch is utilised. Using a single statement piece can also ensure that minimal amounts of furniture pieces are required.

Statement Bathroom Mirrors

Bathrooms have typically been decorated with boring, sometime bevelled, mirrors. Typically, the second most expensive room in the house is void of creativity in this area. We are now seeing a shift in statement mirrors being used to provide the wow factor on a budget.

The Lady O mirror provides Artisanal character.

Use furniture pieces to add artistic flair to minimalistic designed rooms.

Quirky Lighting

Statement lights have been the go-to element for designers and renovators for years now. These generally have been large pendant lights or chandeliers. People are now willing to take the next step by inserting quirky shaped lighting to create an individual look.

Pair one of these interestingly shaped lights into a minimalistic environment to create an individual and unique look to any room.

 

Use as a singular piece, or group multiple shaped and sizes to create unique look.
