2017 Design Trends We Love!
Matte can be an unexpected finish for objects that are traditionally lustrous or glossy. This surprise can serve as a wonderful layer in your design, adding design to the overall composition and a counterpart to other finishes.
Marble continues to dominate the tile market at industry shows, especially when paired with wood and metal. Marble motif wall coverings, carpet patterns, and fabrics have not missed the trend either. No market is untouched by this dominant material!
A “cerused” refers to the technique that brings out the unique grain of wood. You’ll see it on cabinets, tables, chairs, and storage furnishings. This trend has been around on the high-end market for a long time, but has become more universally accepted.
Say good-bye to beige. We are all about adding drama to a room! Deep jewel tones, like emerald green or amethyst, and pastel colors, which are found in nature are popular.
Nail Head Details
This accent is a classic for upholstered pieces, but it’s being used in whole new ways. We are seeing this trend go beyond the usual upholstery and into storage chests, credenzas, and even base plates of lighting fixtures!
Subway tile is such a classic and versatile tile choice. It really works with all sorts of styles, and is affordable at any price point. The new look is all about the unexpected element. We’ve used subway tiles to create a great effect on a farmhouse kitchen, where we added dark grout to make the backsplash graphic and allow the tile to be even more durable, and less likely to show dirt. It’s a fantastic choice for any aesthetic, lifestyle, and budget and comes in a variety of materials, colors, and finishes.
Smart Home Features
As our lives revolve more around our devices, so will our homes. We will be seeing more and more creative ways of incorporating charging docks and areas specifically dedicated to these devices, into the design of a space. We don’t like to see all those messy cords! Night stands or desks with hidden outlets are the way to go.
