Forecasters are taking to the internet and sharing their opinions on What's Hot and What's Not in 2017 home interior design trends. Reading up on opinions from various designers, architects and style bloggers was so interesting! I am listing the top four trends I think make headline news and are noteworthy! (WATCH THIS SHORT NEWS CLIP OF EVE RUSSO AND MYSELF WALK YOU THRU THE TRENDS YOU SEE BELOW).
1. Designing Spaces Using A Mix of Styles, Time Periods, and Cultures. Now more than ever this idea is catching on and, isn't it more interesting and fun to have layers of old and new elements side by side. A sense of worldliness! Like working in Georgian and Victorian era pieces, along with tailored lines that are more contemporary. Such an interesting aesthetic!
I get requests all the time from clients to incorporate some prized possessions into a new design plan. This recently completed family room project you see above was curated using a ton of my clients treasured pieces. We paired beautifully ornate gold framed art pieces with a modern armless settee, recovered two wingback chairs based on the Danish modern movement and then reupholstered in a more updated fabric. A new custom media console blends well keeping the warm peaceful feel so you get a wonderful sense of the homeowners.
2. Bring on the GREEN! Pantone named Greenery as 2017 Color of the Year. Its a cheerful nod to new beginnings. I am so excited about this color trend because green, for me, is not trendy, its timeless.
I love the way Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute,described why they chose the color. "Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose."
