Give your space a facelift with these trending interior design ideas for 2017:

A gem of a home

Jewel colours like emerald green, sapphire blue and ruby red are going to be the rage for 2017. These colours can be used for anything from subtle artwork to large furniture, to give each room a richness and depth. Bold colours like these should be used sparingly, don’t go too wild with them as they can easily become over the top, particularly in small rooms.

Bringing brass back

Brass is back in a big way, along with the mixing and matching of metals. Dark, brushed surface finishes are the way to go, as opposed to highly polished, bright finishes. Black metal combined with brass and matte finishes are popular. Black stainless steel is particularly trendy for kitchen appliances, as well as window frames. Mixing and matching is the name of the game and white plaster can be added to the dark finishes by being used in light fixtures and chairs.

Two is better than one

Since 2017 is all about personal touch, you can add your touch to the kitchen by making your cabinets two-tone. Choose two colours that you think go well together, and totally transform your kitchen by adding some colour. A common choice is a darker colour for the lower cabinets, and a lighter colour for the higher cabinets.

Very velvet

Velvet is going to make its’ presence known in 2017, with throw pillows, couches and curtains being made with this material. Velvet adds a new texture to your home and lends itself to a more luxurious feel. Velvet also brings a warmth and comfort to any room within your home.

Indoors meets outdoors

While this trend has been around for a while, it will continue to be a central focus in many homes in 2017. Whether your home uses Pantone’s colour of the year – Greenery, or not, you can make your space connect with the outdoors in many ways. Use organic materials, neutral colours, wide open spaces or large panes of glass to create a flow between your home and your surroundings.

Vintage gone modern

Vintage pieces with a contemporary spin are hot for 2017. Things like old, classic furniture with modern textures or materials will be popular in the interior décor world. Particularly, vintage furniture that has been recreated to look more modern, as the mid-century modern style grows more popular.

2017 looks like it’s going to be the year of bold designs, moody colours amidst neutral tones and contemporary design meets old world style. It’s all about finding the balance and coming up with a chic design, with a splash of your personality thrown in.
