I really enjoy checking out new home decor trends in magazines and online – especially at the beginning of the new year! It’s fun to see what the media and design professionals think is hot in the home decorating world, and then I like to think about how I can take these trends and use them in my own home (if I like them).
Here are some of the most popular home decor trends I’ve found for 2017. Love ’em or hate ’em, I’m also sharing with you ways that you can make these family-friendly and affordable for your own home. And don’t forget – it’s most important to make your home comfortable for YOU and your family, whether your home is “trendy” or not!
Pantone has just announced their Colour of the Year as a vivid green called Greenery. To make this trend affordable, simply purchase or DIY accents in bright green like a blanket and some throw pillows, and voila! If you want a more bold approach, paint an accent wall in bright green.
Lots of lush textiles, especially velvet, are making a strong appearance this year. I love velvet! I’ve used it to reupholster my vintage chair pair here and it’s just so soft and luxurious. You could buy an inexpensive accent chair in velvet, or place some velvet throw pillows on your sofa to get this look.
Jewel tones are an interesting departure from last year’s pastels. They’re also rich and luxurious feeling, and they definitely feel cozy. Paint a room in a deep, jewel tone like dark turquoise, navy or deep purple, or play with jewel tones in kitchen accessories like plates and serving ware.
For the last few years, geometric shapes have been all the rage, but this year we might see a return of more organic, flowing shapes in furniture. Grab a hold of this trend via a flowing accent table or making some new DIY drapes out of fabric with organic shapes like circles and florals.
Dark, Matte Finishes
Finishes like “black stainless steel” are gaining popularity in appliances, and they offer a sophisticated, sleek look to the kitchen. You could also try this finish in smaller items like candlesticks, vases and smaller appliances.
Whether it’s real or faux, marble is still huge this year. I think marble, especially Carrara marble like we have in our kitchen, is timeless, so it might be something to consider spending a little more money on. If you have a tight budget however, use contact paper with a marble pattern to dress up plain surfaces.
