In collaboration with various interior designers, builders and homeowners around the world, this report pairs inspiration with ever-changing consumer design needs and preferences. Following are the anticipated 2017 trends, according to Delta Faucet Company:
Striving to add playfulness to neutral tones, fall-inspired moody florals, satin gold and toasted almond oak create a classic environment within open concept spaces. Intentional curves with nail head accents or flowing fabric coupled with two-toned molding create inviting environments. Homeowners can incorporate luminous white gold silverware into a table space, install a spool-shaped light fixture in an airy room or mix marble and brass for a unique coffee table display to further accessorize and leverage this design trend.
Geo-quilt patterns, deep earthy colors and metal accents align at the intersection of homemade and high-end chic with this welcoming aesthetic. To create a feeling of laid-back sophistication, this trend balances the rough edges of exposed beams and concrete slab floors with cognac leather and dark pewter finishes. Whether an accent doorknob or a coffee-toned media stand with an industrial frame, the opportunities to incorporate this trend are endless and allow for a look that is both affluent and authentic.
Influenced by the Art Deco era, this design trend melds one luxurious element after another to deliver a combination of comfort and high-end design. Strong, geometric patterns and dark hues complement softly faceted shapes, matte black accessories and brushed gold finishes. Conversely, metallic accents are balanced with soft textiles in natural greens, strong blues and rosy purples. Coffee and walnut tones juxtapose stone accents for an added touch of elegance to this opulent yet livable design.
Perforated metal paired with layered shapes and sophisticated metal blocking work to create a streamlined mid-century trend with modern flair. American Mod continues to gain momentum within the design community as it taps into strong Scandinavian influence via a streamlined aesthetic that emphasizes a mix of geometric shapes. Homeowners seeking a flexible balance between suburban and urban living can incorporate angular elements with soft hand leather, modern blacks and semi-transparent glass to accomplish such a look and feel.
