Each year, fashion-forward homes are defined by hot new trends that sweep the design world, translating into accessible pieces that everyone can get their hands on at a local supermarket or favourite online retailer. From the year’s most-wanted colour palettes to must-have accessories of the moment, whether you’re transforming a whole house or giving a room a makeover, it’s worth taking a look at the directions you could be taking.
From leaf prints to bright verdant paints, green is the year’s go-to colour. Think bold palm print wallpapers in vivid hues, designed to add drama to a feature wall. Go for a subtler look with leaf print wall art or a lampshade. Or pick out greens from a fresh palette with a vase or cushion. Hanging plants and terrariums complete the look, breathing a bright and airy feel into a room, and bringing the outdoors in.
Finishing walls, worktops or floors in marble makes one of the chicest style statements of the year. But if your budget is more high street than high end, the good news is that faux marble finishes are as equally acceptable as the real thing. Turn to marble print wallpapers or engineered quartz tiles to deliver deluxe style with a more realist budget.
MIX IT UP
Mismatching patterns may not be for the faint hearted, but being bold with prints will give a room a distinctly designer feel. But to avoid a room feeling chaotic, why not anchor the look in one key piece? Contrasting pillows, throws and blankets on a bed, for example, will allow you to go for a simpler style in the rest of the room.
From tiles to planters, rustic terracotta looks set to return in a big way for 2017. Matt or unglazed finishes ensure the look remains contemporary, whether you’re tiling walls or floors, adding warmth and depth to your living space. If tiles are not your thing, painting a wall or introducing accessories in a terracotta tone makes this is a trend that works for all homes.
THE NEW BLACK
Blue hues take centre stage in homes looking for a laid back and luxurious vibe. From midnight and denim to pale misty blues, this timeless colour has never been bigger in the world of interior design. And because it pairs perfectly with natural wood, metallic and almost any other colour in the spectrum, it’s a versatile modern neutral that you can take into any room.
Move over copper and rose gold, because brass is the new metallic on the block. Light fittings and accessories will continue to major in reflective metallic sheens but new paler tones offer a more understated effect. A perfect contrast to matt walls and velvet fabrics, for a hint of luxury with a laid back twist.
