The year 2017 is already upon us, and with that, there seems to have emerged a wide range of home décor ideas. These chic home décor trends will dominate much of 2017 and give rise to new concepts that will take precedence in the following year. For those who love to experiment with different materials, textures, and colors, the New Year is certainly going to present with a wide range of options to beautify homes in new and interesting ways. So here are some chic home décor trends to look out for in 2017.
The design trends of this year will be largely dominated by metallic shades. For instance, gold, copper and brass accents will be added to various home furniture items and fixtures, appliances and fittings made of chrome, nickel, and stainless steel will become increasingly widespread. In small and large ways, metal and metallic finishes will be incorporated into different spheres of home design.
Eco-friendly home décor
As more and more people realise the benefits of living in eco-friendly environments, there is now a great demand for beautiful and serene eco-friendly interiors. This means that in 2017 the focus will be on design elements and materials that are supportive of the ecosystem while at the same time looking good on all occasions. Using natural materials can help in reducing carbon footprint. These products also last much longer than non-green products which help in saving money.
Natural flowers and foliage
Along with the use of eco-friendly materials at different parts of the home, there will also be an added interest in bringing nature directly to the homes so that one can feel relaxed and rejuvenated at all times. Decorating homes with houseplants and different types of fresh flower arrangements will be in vogue. Plants and bonsai trees will be used as room dividers, in the balconies to beautify homes as well as near doors and windows. In fact, by using some good sense of creativity, one can also turn a window area into a nice hub of foliage herbs and plants.
Geometric patterns are going to make a comeback this year. Bold and snazzy, the geometric tiles and patterns can be just the perfect addition to any kind of luxurious home. They can add a lot of glamor and sassiness to your interiors. Gorgeous geometric tiles can be used for creating a classy wall design or background; they can also be used for creating a stunning floor design.
Floral prints were once considered a major rage in the world of home décor and fashion. This year, we can see many of these floral designs and prints making a strong comeback. The reason for this is that they often help to create a dynamic and bold look. The best way to go with floral paints is by choosing one or two furniture items or furnishing pieces and redoing them with floral prints or plant-inspired décor instead of implementing the same effect through the whole room. In this way, these furniture items or furnishing pieces will serve as central points in the room.
Tropical hues and colors
There is going to be a strong bent towards tropical prints and hues as well as tropical themes when it comes to wallpapers, wall designing, wall paints and wall arts. The tendency towards all things tropical will also be reflected in the designer fabrics that are used for the curtains and the sofas. The best way to redo a sofa would be to simply get a sofa in plain shades and then regularly renew its look with differently styled tropical fabrics.
The texture of the interiors will see a strong surge of experimentation as new ideas are going to be explored in this realm. From light fixtures to brushed brass tables, designer wallpapers to cool fabrics, there is going to be a lot of exploration regarding textures.
