3 Up-and-Coming Interior Design Trends to Look Out for in 2017
With just a few short weeks left of 2016, it’s hard to believe that the New Year could soon be upon us. But as everyone in the world of interior design knows, it’s vital to keep an eye on the trends that will define next year’s home décor. With that in mind, we thought we’d explore three up-and-coming interior design trends that you may just what to include in your home during 2017.
#1: Rustic, earthy colours and tones
You may already have noticed the soaring popularity of items like jute rugs over the course of 2016, and that’s really building up to something. Next year, you can expect to see a boom in the area of rustic, earthy tones like brown, ochre, red, and orange. Likewise, natural fibres such as wool and jute will be sure to be mainstays for the best-selling rugs in 2017. Of course, one of the biggest benefits of this trend is that these rugs are some of the most hard-wearing you can buy – so they’re sure to stand the test of time.
#2: Minimalism meets escapism
There’s nothing quite like having a place to retreat to when the world gets a little too much, and that’s where the escapism trend of 2017 is coming from. The concept relates to creating a cosy, welcoming environment at home, and rugs are a key part of that with their ability to create these warm atmospheres. In addition, the concept of minimalism is now intrinsically tied to escapism, which manifests as cosy, shaggy rugs, in simple colours that don’t complicate a space with too much visual clutter.
If there’s one word you’re sure to hear time and again when it comes to interior design trends in 2017, it’s ‘vintage’. As always, vintage designs, shapes, and colours are sure to make their presence known throughout the year, and you can be sure to see a wide range of vintage rugs too. This style of interior décor can already be seen, with items like vintage radios and plenty of furniture pieces inspired by what made it big back in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.
