Creative experts are busy making their predictions for the interior design trends for 2017. Here’s Quick Move Now’s round-up of some of the most popular forecasts.
The evolution of ‘hygge’
Hygge – the Danish concept of warmth, cosiness and contentment – has been one of the most popular interior design trends of 2016.
Hygge is predicted to continue to be a central concept for the coming year, with greater evolution. This will see a focus on all things handmade, authentic and rustic. Small, artisan businesses will give larger corporate retailers a run for their money.
Fireplaces will continue to be the central focus of many living spaces and formal, designated dining areas will become a sought-after property asset.
Bolder interiors as homeowners choose to improve rather than move
The continuing drama of Brexit, along with wider market uncertainty, mean that many homeowners are choosing to improve rather than move.
When homeowners feel secure about staying in their property for the foreseeable future, they tend to make bolder interior design choices.
The neutral, minimalist, beige décor that is usually adopted to entice potential buyers gives way to more personalised taste. For this reason, bolder interiors will be one of the major interior design trends for 2017.
Grey and pastels
Grey is predicted to continue being one of the big interior design trends next year when it comes to colour palette.
In 2017 the grey trend will evolve to add more blue tones. Dulux has recently released its ‘colour of the year’ for 2017, which is Denim Drift; a colour they describe as ‘a beautiful, timeless and versatile grey-blue’. Greys will be complemented by other modern neutrals such as lemon, blush, and soft blues.
When it comes to fixtures and fittings one of the major interior design trends for 2017 will be matte metallic.
Brass in particular will be big in interior design over the next twelve months.
Vintage-style geometric shapes are going to be everywhere next year. Reclaimed floor tiles, wallpaper and even soft furnishings.
Vintage geometrics will be one of the easiest interior design trends to adopt and adapt to suit your individual style.
