I always have to giggle when I see what the “experts” have forecasted as the next interior design trends. I giggle because the trends are all over the board and each list that I see, relates to a specific aesthetic and I think that puts too many trends on the “what’s next” list. So, I thought I would share a few of the forecasted trends that I think cover the majority of design aesthetics…you know…a little something that won’t be old news in 6 months. Because we don’t all want to live in a Yurt or overanalyze what modern historic with a recycled twist will look like in our home.
Here are a few of my favorites trends that promise to be big in 2017. Simple design elements that are versatile enough to change with any trend that comes and goes.
#1: Upholstered Headboards
One of the easiest ways to add glamour to any bedroom is already upholstered bed heads, but the trend is said to completely explode in 2017. Bed heads are a staple in luxury hotel bedrooms and celebrity homes, they are so versatile and can fit and flare to any bedroom. Of course we love the more glamorous side of an upholstered headboard.
#2 Bold Wallpaper
I love adding a bold wallpaper pattern to my client’s spaces. It can be a colorful pattern or even a subtle tonal pattern, and it can be used as an accent or takeover an entire room. Florals aren’t for everyone but in small doses they can add a bit of whimsy sophistication. Bold floral wallpaper can take a boring powder bath to the next level and creates a great space for guests to enjoy when visiting.
#3 Large Sale Art
Filling a blank wall can be overwhelming, but consider how large scale art can visually fill the space without taking over. Art adds color, pattern and texture to a space and can be a great jumping off point for creating a color scheme for your space. There are so many affordable options on the market now and finding a unique pieces is easier than in years past. I love incorporating pieces from local artist here in Texas, it gives me the option of installing a custom piece for my client and keeps their home unique and interesting.
