Is your home ready for a fresh new look?June 12, 2017
It can be difficult to keep your home up-to-date with the latest interior design trends – they sometimes come and go faster than we would like them to. Every year usually welcomes the arrival of new trends and welcomes back some of the traditional favourites. Thankfully, DM Design, providers of kitchens in Glasgow, offers an insight on the latest trends circulating in 2017 to help you get the most out of your design investment:
Be bold with green
The ‘in’ colour this year is green – yes, green! It represents revitalization, as well as reflecting the current interest in bringing environmental sustainability into the home. Don’t be afraid to be bold with your colouring and take a chance with green – the brighter the better.
Industrial is going nowhere
It’s back again. Following previous years, industrial design is a trend of 2017, especially in kitchens. You don’t have to go all-out for a nod towards this trend – simply a table, or chairs, or a statement item in steel can achieve this look.
Relaxed and boho
Gone are the days of feeling obliged to stick with formality – finally relaxation is here. With 2017 style, a more Bohemian, relaxed approach to décor has arrived. Plants, woven baskets and printed fabrics help to achieve this look in a cost-effective way.
Fur for all seasons
Don’t make the mistake that fur is only appropriate for the winter months – you could miss out on some great accessories. Whether it’s lamps, furniture or rugs, fur household items are making a comeback – even for summer. Instead of bringing out fur items as the winter months approach, add fur touches (in lighter tones) all year round for an instantly contemporary feel.
A luxury touch
There has always been something luxurious about jewel colours – and 2017 is emphasising this. Think berry colours, rich greens, turquoises and blues. Add a hint of luxury with jewel colours, used as either accent colours or across whole walls.
Be daring with patterns and textures
Mixing and matching is so in right now. Be daring and mix it up with your patterns and texture can add such a dynamic twist to your home. A variety of florals all working together can look great – as can different thicknesses of stripes. An array of textures is also going to come through. Mix fabrics, wallpaper and different surfaces to catch the eye.
