Every year, home décor and home designs are guaranteed to change as each new calendar year comes into effect. Have you ever wondered how the new home designs and trends are decided each year? It may be hard to believe, but the colors forecasted for 2017 were decided two years ago. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, dives into the fashion forecast you can expect for 2017.
Design trends and the colors that go along with those trends are decided by industry leaders, often a few years in advance of the actual trend. Industry leaders will gather to forecast the colors ahead of time so home furnishing stores and manufacturers can keep up with the latest industry trends. Most of the times they are accurate, and sometimes misguided ideas can just become a “trend.”
The good thing with fashion forecasts is that they come with a variety of color palette options, so most people can find the color or colors that suit them best each season. Colors will range from earthly accents to romantic pastels. Home fashion does typically follow what is the latest in apparel fashion as well, so it is something that is easy to spot when it is on the rise and growing.
So what can you expect for 2017? Plan to continue seeing various shades of blue that will follow into the new year. These blue shades will be accompanied by warm, ethereal colors as well. These colors have been selected to mix together, but can also be used alone. The color palettes change in hue with each season, but the basic colors will remain the same throughout the year.
In 2017, for your walls you will still see plenty of grays and taupe colors as they will still be the most popular base colors in homes. For wall color, over the last couple years there has been a gradual transition from warm accented colors to colorless colors. Light, neutral wall colors are what is in these days.
In most of the new styles, dark and rich wall colors are a thing of the past and a lighter palette is what is in trend currently. In most of today’s interiors, you will see light taupe, warm gray and shades of white complemented by bright white trim.
In 2017, you will notice a global vogue theme in décor come into play. Beautiful, bold and vibrant colors that are inspired by counties and cultures around the world will bring energy to any home. This includes an eclectic blend of artifacts, rich finishes, layered textures as well as bold colors.
Sun faded pastels and muted colors mixed with the gray and taupe wall colors in homes will also be a serene retreat vibe that you will see in décor next year. This trend will give a romantic ambiance to any room in your home.
Also expect to see a bit of a nature trend come 2017, with a décor desire to bring nature inside. Natural finishes, reclaimed materials, and soothing earth tones will give an eco-chic vibe to many homes to come. Expect this rustic modern trend to incorporate a lot of terracotta and warm tones, like blue-greens and warm reds.
Lastly, do expect some nostalgic elegance come next year with everything that is old being new again. Rich floral hues of the past like purple, mulberry, maritime blue and forest green are slowly making their way back into home fashion. The important note to follow is to pull this look together with cosmopolitan furnishings to keep the look polished and of quality.
Incorporating any or all of these design trends into your home come 2017 will have you leading the neighborhood in hot home design!
