In fewer than two weeks, 2016 will be over. As you prepare for the new year, you may be thinking a new look for your home is in order. What better way to change things up than to check out the design trends and predictions for 2017?
It’s all about personality according to paint company Behr. Get to know its 20 limited-edition colors designed to match three lifestyle types. Maybe you’re “comfortable,” with muted, feminine pastels that go well with light, natural tones. Or is “confident” more your style, featuring hot and spicy red, fired-up orange and muted midnight blue? If earthy jewel tones are more your thing, you’re definitely channeling “composed.” Once you’ve picked your palette, stop by one of the showrooms at Holly Hunt for more inspiration.
If you’ve got your color personality down, it’s time to think accessories. Designers are readying clients for a world of mixed metals beyond brass and gold. In fact, an abundance of brass has played itself out. Polished silvers and nickels along with white plaster are big players this coming year. And when you’re ready, Adriana Hoyos has a fine selection of finishes to choose from.
Everything Old is New Again
Get ready to see vintage pieces made modern in 2017. Modern furniture inspired by the retro look of the ’50s and ’60s is a popular trend for next year. Think modular chairs made from contemporary materials. Repurposed items are also still a big thing. And for repurposed, recycled and reimagined, Again & Again is your one-stop shop for one-of-a-kind pieces.
Imagine wallpaper that looks more like art than a wall covering. Art-inspired wallpaper is making a big splash these days, and there are even specialty companies that use artists’ work as inspiration in their designs. For hand-painted wallpaper, look no further than Gracie, where you’ll find scenic Asian and European wall coverings.
When it’s time to pull the trigger on redesigning your home, the Dallas Design District offers a hotbed of inspiration. And while trends are good to keep in mind, remember the best advice may be to throw the trends out the window!
