Invested in making your living space stylish, characterful, and current? You’ll no doubt have your finger on the pulse of interior design trends. So far, 2017 has gifted us so with a great many fascinating design innovations. It’s 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, trends see the outside coming in and stripping things back to basics, with the bare wall look. This gives a striking look to any room. Hence, less is definitely more. A definite inner-city ‘studio loft’ feel that will impress your more bohemian friends.
Bye bye Hygge, hello Lagom. the Swedish word roughly translates to ‘in moderation.’ The Huffington Post mentions here how the lifestyle trend can apply to day-to-day life. However, with interior design, it’s a little more than minimalist but less-cluttered than cosy. Achieve that ‘Goldilocks’ balance between too much and too little. Lagom-inspired homes marry together features of relaxation and practicality in perfect harmony.
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.
Vintage Interior Design
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!).
We see elements of décor that hark back to the 50s, 60s, and 70s. In particular, vintage-style vinyl record players, rotary dial telephones and even pinball machines and jukeboxes making a comeback.
In 2017, it seems pastel may be slightly passé. Design lovers are studding their homes with vivid jewel colours. Achieving a 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 interior trends. As we move into summer and beyond, things will surely continue to change and evolve with the seasons.
