Design Trends for 2017

Jan 05, 2017

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.  

Kitchen Jeffrey

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."

Romantic Bedroom

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 ?

Hutkers Bathroom

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.
