Design Trends for 2017

20 Dec 2016 by BIASC - Staff

Take a look back on the design trends for 2016 and view what's to come in 2017.

 

 

2016: Matte Black Fixtures

Last year interior design was all about matte finishes. However, Etsy designers created metallic designs with varying textures. The good news? The matte paint from last year will look amazing next to the metallic objects and varying textures that you picked over the year.

 

 

2017: Mixed Patterns

The mixed pattern trend on the runway during the fall 2016 New York Fashion Week has inspired home décor in the coming year. A space with a statement piece anchors a room with enticing and mismatched patterns.

 

 

2016: Marble Accents

Marble was very prominent in this year’s NY NOW showcase. The trend adds a touch of luxury at a lower price.

 

 

2017: Faux Finishes

It’s not just faux furs that are being talked about for 2017 trends—faux materials, such as faux wood ceiling beams that won’t rot, or engineered quartz that can withstand acidic foods better that Carrara marble, are being considered for budget friendly design.

 

 

2016: New Neutrals

In 2016 designers left cliché neutrals, such as taupe, and replaced them with new neutrals that included blush tones, silver, and even pale blue. 

 

 

2017: Greenery

The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is “Greenery.” The bright green color is supposed to represent refreshment and revitalization as we enter the new year.
