2017 has arrived and with it comes a whole new set of trends and predictions for decor in the year ahead. We've done some research and compiled a list of the 10 trends we believe will be most popular this year:
1. Upholstered Headboards
Upholstered headboards are back in a big way for 2017. We're loving this trend for the luxury and sophistication it adds to a bedroom. If you are looking to reupholster your existing headboard, or need something new made up, check out our upholstery services.
Green is on the hot list for 2017. We're excited to see green take centre stage this year, with multiple beautiful shades to choose from, green adds depth and brings the outdoors adding an earthy tone to a space.
3. Fool-Proof Fabrics
Everyone wants the look of rich, natural fabrics like pure cottons, velvets and linen in their home, however it's not always a functional option in busy homes with kids and animals. The good news? Polyester blend fabrics are the perfect solution and it's set to be a trend for 2017! Poly or poly-blend fabrics are getting so good, it's hard to tell the difference anymore, offering you an affordable, easy-to-maintain alternative.
4. Repurposed Pieces
Repurposing and up-cycling are set to gain more traction this year and we're glad to see it! Restoring or repurposing old pieces is not only an eco-friendly alternative to buying new, but it also costs a fraction of the price . If you've been hoarding an old furniture piece in the hope of restoring it one day, 2017 is the year to do it! We can assist you with your next restoration project with our bespoke furniture and upholstery services.
5. Natural Fibre Rugs
A trend that is here to stay in 2017 is natural fibre rugs. These rugs work in just about any space, offering an earthy touch to the floors. View our wide selection of rugs online for more inspiration.
6. Jewel Tones
Step aside pastels, the jewel tones are set to take centre stage in 2017! Combining rich velvet accent pieces with floaty silks and sheers will create a lightness and soft romantic element to this trending colour palette.
7. Contemporary Farmhouse Style
Modern, farmhouse-inspired living is also set to grow in popularity in 2017. This growing style trend adds loads of easy-going comfort, instantly transforming a house into a home.
8. Muted Colours
If the bold jewel-tones aren't your thing, you're in luck this year, as muted tones are totally trending! Whites, beiges, pale greys, camel and blush pink are all on the hotlist for creating a muted masterpiece. Remember to keep the look interesting by adding loads of textured fabrics and layering.
Bring pattern and texture into your home this year with geometrics that resemble African and Asian patterns with a modern twist. Think about lifting a neutral room with an accent chair or some scatter cushions in your favourite ethnic-inspired geometric print and you'll be bang on trend!
