Happy New Year! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for shopping with us over the holidays; we had a great season and we hope you did, too! With the start of the new year, we'd love to share some of the design trends that we see coming for 2017. We recommend, if you're following the trends, choose only the ones you love and incorporate them into your unique style to create a classic look that is customized specifically to you.
Warmth & Texture
Overall, we’re seeing design head toward more warmth and texture, no doubt adding coziness and encouraging you to stay awhile with your loves.
Raw & Warm Whites: Shades of white that have a little texture and dimension, such as chalky white and bone white, and warm whites are making their way into our homes this year. Our favorite warm whites are Spanish White (BM) and West Highland White (SW).
Texture: We’re definitely seeing more and more texture and embellishments come into play in 2017. Think pleats, tufting, velvet, mohair, faux fur, luxe yarns with big stitching, and ornate hand-carved wood.
We are seeing a lot of mixing and layering patterns in 2017. Also, the patterns are less geometric and more of an organic, handmade, textural, and warm feel. We're also loving vintage Turkish Kilim pillows & rugs, and our good friend Tara @ Woven Rugs is a great source to find them!
While we still love layered neutrals, color is making its way back into the design landscape this year, especially via Dark Forest Green walls. The paint color we've been seeing everywhere is "Studio Green" by Farrow & Ball - it's rich and beautiful and pairs well with aged brass and modern whites to create a moody + modern look. Annie Sloan's "Amsterdam Green", one of the newest colors in the Annie Sloan collection, is a gorgeous option for painting furniture, frames, etc.
Art Deco Inspired Lines
Over the past few years, we’ve seen trends in Farmhouse, Modern Rustic, Bohemian, and Midcentury Modern. We think we'll be seeing an uptick in high design, glam statement pieces and patterns inspired by the Art Deco movement.
Quality > Quantity
Minimalism influenced design recently and 2017 is no exception. This year, we're gravitating toward well-made, quality furniture, accessories, and everything in between. There are so many vendors and makers out there creating pieces made with high quality craftsmanship, so we definitely love to support those folks.
Overall, it seems like the majority of what's coming this year is stemming from the idea of creating warmth & calm in a world full of technology overload. That's a platform we can get behind!
If you'd like to incorporate any of these ideas into your space, we'd love to help!
