There are many ways to revamp your home. You can play with colors, redecorate with new themes and keep with the latest trends! For 2017, here are some that you might want to try for your home.
Keep Out: Oversized Furniture
Space is one of the design elements to prioritize for 2017. So unless they fit into your theme, bulky antiques and oversized furniture will need to take the backseat. To open up more space, let’s stick to furniture that’s ideally scaled to your room.
More Storage, More Space
The trick to getting more space in your home? Keep only the essentials, and keep them neatly hidden. Multi-function furniture with hidden storage are still in, and should help you with the clutter. So, get those furniture pieces out from the attic and set them in places where they’ll flawlessly fit in.
Go Back to Nature
Generally, our homes have slowly adapted to today’s world of steel and tech that designers are looking to bring more warmth and comfort back with greens and wooden pieces.
Be it a pocket garden, a vertical garden or simply transferring plants from outside to indoors, designing according to the Jungalow approach should help you do a good job. For added texture, you might want to add a little wood, maybe on functional furniture pieces such as your work desk or coffee table. A “cerused” finish that brings out the unique grain of wood should be a nice touch.
Breathe Life into Spaces with Colors
Colors will compete with the usual neutrals: grays and beiges.
2017 is a time of expression, a time to let their personality spill on the walls of your home! The line separating base colors to accents is blurred, and you can expect to see experimental color schemes and stronger palettes ranging from jewel tones to pastels and even bright bold hues.
Of course, a colorful train wreck of a home should still be avoided, so carefully plan out your scheme and select shades that work together.
