The design trends of last year held strong in the last quarter, many of which will prove they are worthy of a presence in the new year. Yes mixed metals will be with us again in 2017. Ben Moore Color of the year will surely influence lots of design choices. And plaids & checks will be retaining their place in "trending" . We love them all. But here is what we are loving even more for 2017 - Warm wood tones which court Scandinavian simplicity. We are feeling the Hygge - pronounced: hoo-ga , a Danish term for living simply.
Jeffrey Dungan of Jeffrey Dungan Architects captioned this photo in an Instagram post perfectly, quoting Andrew Wyeth - " I search for the realness, the feeling of a subject, all the texture around it - I always want to see the third dimension of something. I want to come alive with the object ". "Texture is one of the lesser understood yet rich tools in the gentle designers bag of arrows - of marble & wood planks."
How relaxed would you feel in this bedroom? - And how much does a simple white back drop love warm natural finishes as an accent? And these rustic beams ?
Light wood floors give this bathroom, designed by Hutker Architects, just the right foundation. Simplicity achieved through gleaming white fixtures & clear chrome, topped off with light rustic beams for the win.
