Lifestyle | 5 of the biggest interior design trends for 2017

If you’re invested in making your living space stylish, characterful, and current, you’ll no doubt want to keep your finger on the pulse of interior design trends.  2017 has gifted us so far with a great many fascinating design innovations and re-vitalised some well-worn styles in amazing ways.  Read on for five of the most exciting interior design trends so far this year.  

Bare wall finishes

We all know the importance of a good backdrop.  In 2017, it’s all about bringing the outside in and stripping things back to basics, with the bare wall look (shown here on Pinterest).  This gives a striking look to any room, and a definite inner-city ‘studio loft’ feel that will impress your more bohemian friends.


‘Lagom’ roughly translates into Swedish as ‘in moderation.'  The Huffington Post mentions here how the lifestyle trend can apply to day-to-day life, though regarding interior design, it’s a little more featureful than minimalist and less-cluttered than cosy.  It’s all about achieving that ‘Goldilocks’ balance between too much and too little, and lagom-inspired homes marry together features of relaxation and practicality in perfect harmony.

Smart features

As The Huffington Post points out, smart gadgets are increasingly changing the landscape and capabilities of our homes.  From touch sensors on lights and taps to wireless speakers so sleek and stylish that they double up as ornaments, digital technology is opening up a whole new world of design possibilities.


Just because we’re powering forward into a digital future doesn’t mean we’ve lost sight of the past.  In 2017, vintage décor is as ‘in’ as ever.  Jo Leevers of The Guardian highlights the character of vintage features and furnishings (bare walls feature largely in her piece, too!)  This year, we see elements of décor that hark back to the 50s, 60s, and 70s, in particular, with vintage-style vinyl record players, rotary dial telephones and even pinball machines and jukeboxes making a comeback.

Jewel colours

In 2017, it seems pastel may be slightly passé.  Design lovers are studding their homes with vivid jewel colours, achieving a right royal look with bright ruby reds, sapphire blues, and bold emerald greens.  The braver amongst us might be using these colours liberally, outfitting our homes like an opulent silk gown, while others may be using the jewel tones sparingly and letting them glitter in a more demure setting.

We’ve barely scratched the surface of all 2017 has to offer when it comes to interior design, and as we move into summer and beyond, things will surely continue to change and evolve with the seasons.  If you’re thinking about revamping your living space, you’ll want to take advantage of interior design services that are truly in touch with the latest trends.  You’ll find that Kia Designs is in touch with your own personal taste, and works to blend fashion seamlessly with your own vision to create a tailored, stylish and completely professional look that’s yours alone.
