There were many innovative design ideas in the past year. Here is a look back a few of the most popular. Several we expect to see continuing in the new year.
Combining Classic and Modern Styles
Old met new as we saw the traditional furniture structures reimagined with a modern edge. Through out the year we saw a trend of mixing modern and timeless designs to create a relaxed feeling.
Closed concept Kitchen
Surprisingly there has been a change of tides on the open concept kitchen. Homes with a separate kitchen offer a great integration for people who love to cook. Making your culinary space less messy and more private will make your dinner parties even more organized and fun. Relax without the feeling of having to clean up those dishes so guests don’t see the mess.
An easy addition to make your home feel well designed is geometry. Geometric patterns and clean lines blend well with any style of decor and simultaneously look sleek and contemporary.
Don’t sell your dark wood furniture as it is on the rise again. This trend will continue to gain popularity in 2018 with a resurgence of rich and darker tones in home and kitchen furnishings.
Artistic handmade Decor
More handmade and artistic patterns made by embroidery, felt, knitting and crochet adorned the walls of the 2017 home interior. Not entirely crafty, but it is the artistic quality which will positively be appreciated by all.
Upholstered & Fabric Headboards
Both single fabric and upholstered headboards are fabulous options to replace timber bedframes. These looks are a great pick to bring a luxurious turnaround to the look of your bedroom. Whether you go for the classic neutral model with buttons, for a vibrant velvet one or a uniformly colored bedhead in a fine fabric, the bedhead is a sure way to glamorize the look of your bedroom.
Recycling, Reusing and Up-cycling
Sustainability is not just a feature that is enjoyed by our environment but also in the interiors of our home. Reusing, repurposing and up-cycling was a key element and will remain so in the coming year.
Using Jeweled tones to add a pop of color
Deep, rich colors inspired by metals, space, stars, clouds and the cosmos took center stage. Metallics, raw-cut quartz, Lucite and opal carry the ease to bring the missing sparkle and interest to your home. This style also holds a romantic element to bring that soft rhythm to your home.
Wallpapers inspired by art is another trend that found its way to our homes in 2017. Available in several textures and colors, the artistic wallpaper gave a stunning makeover to the home.
A No Tech Zone
A counter to the digital age, this movement focuses on incorporating slow and low technology which is definitely the need of the hour. Digital detox trend highlights old crafts and imperfect forms that give us a break from the overuse of technology.
