NW Design Services – If 2016 was a little unpredictable, 2017 is looking to be a boundary-pushing year for interiors. From unusual textures to jaw-dropping colors, editors at House Beautiful spoke with a few interior designers as well as predictors at Trulia about the looks that will define 2017 (along with the three “trends” that will be on their way out).
This forecast chart created by Trulia shares visuals of the upcoming trends…
1. Cerused woods
Also referred to as a limed-wax finish, this technique adds color to wood while also revealing its unusual grain. It’s expected to be big for cabinets and flooring, especially in dramatic hues of black, “greige,” and dark gray.
2. Marble surfaces
If we had to name one of the biggest trends of 2017, marble would be it. In white or black, the material has jumped over from chic cafes and restaurants and into our kitchens and bathrooms. It’s not just for countertops, though: Look out for marble motifs in carpets, wallcoverings, and even fabrics.
3. Animal-inspired textures
Whether real or faux, leather, shagreen, and parchment will be hot materials for 2017. Mainly, these hides will be used as an unexpected pop of texture in accent furniture.
4. Statement headboards
Designers have noticed a pattern when it comes to beds: The emphasis is on a headboard rather than a traditional bed (the kind that comes with a matching footboard). And those headboards? They’re statement pieces with bold silhouettes and luxe fabrics.
5. Shiny metal finishes
Think shiny hardware is so ’80s? Think again. Polished brass and bronze knobs, knockers, pulls, and faucets are back in a big way. It’s a trend that’s easy to bring into your home — just swap out your current hardware.
6. Matte appliances
Stainless steel has long been the default choice for stylish kitchens everywhere. Not in 2017. Following the trend in beauty, matte-finish appliances in dark hues bring an element of drama into the kitchen.
7. Patterned wallcoverings
After years of solid walls, wallpaper is poised for a comeback. Designers are seeing an interest in all-over, dramatic patterns like paisley, overscaled florals, and abstract designs. You’ll see these wallcoverings in small spaces, like powder rooms, often in darker hues.
8. Jewel tones
No longer are homeowners (and renters with understanding landlords) content with blank white walls. Jewel tones like emerald and amethyst add warmth and personality to a space, particularly in entryways and small spaces. It’s not just about hue but also intensity. Even neutral paint colors like gray can go bolder.
9. Nailhead details
You’ve seen them on sofas for ages, but now nailhead details jump to accent pieces like storage chests, credenzas, and even light fixtures. They even form their own patterns — no longer limited to the edges.
10. Overdyed rugs
We’ll never see sisals and solids go out of fashion, but there is something new in the world of rugs. It’s all about an over dyed effect that features rich, saturated colors. These colorful showstoppers are practically pieces of art for your floor.
