January is a time for projection and setting goals. We reassess our careers, we reevaluate our relationships, and most importantly we reflect on what we have achieved and could have done better. But if your considering remodeling, this new year is also a time to look back at the biggest décor trends of this year. Although trends come and go as fast as they start, it can be hard sometimes to track which ones were just a flash in the pan and which ones will stand till the test of time. Since your home is a little more permanent than an outfit or a seasonal closet, its essential to evaluate the longevity of a tread before diving headfirst into your home improvement project. Now that 2017 has passed it is time to look back at all its biggest trends to predict which ones are here to stay and which ones need to hit the road. Everything from the insanely popular round mirrors to the rise of beige paint colors, here’s the rounded-up version of the home décor trends that made an impact on 2017.
1. NEW MODERN
Earlier this year we were introduced to the ‘New Modern’ style, which consisted of minimal furniture with curved edges and bold colors. New modern incorporates playful shapes and colors especially in pastel and jewel tones.
2. BEIGE TONES
Many of grew up with the perception that beige is a very boring color. However, if 2017 taught us anything its that this doesn’t always have to be the case. This, year we embraced neutral tones in our homes to create beautifully layered minimal spaces that portrayed beige tones in a whole different light.
3. NO UPPER CABINETS
Inspired by European kitchens, no upper cabinets were a growing trend that encouraged displays of art and objects that made the space feel more decorated. Many kitchens stateside relinquished upper cabinets, instead they extended the marble from the countertops up into a foot-high backsplash with a ledge.
4. HANDMADE CERAMICS
If we learned anything on Instagram this year, it was that handmade ceramics made a comeback. Whether displayed in sets, small vases, or other decorative objects, ceramics brought more organic quality to an otherwise polished space.
5. ROUND MIRRORS
The round mirror trend was all the craze this year. Most often they were displayed in bathrooms, powder rooms, and entryways. Round mirrors with thing brass or black metal frames helped to break up squared edges in a space and can make almost any room appear larger.
Hygge- the Scandinavian word is meant to represent the feeling of coziness and togetherness. Soft textures like blankets, sheepskin rugs, candlelight, and other cozy accessories all work to create this mood.
7. COLORFUL KITCHENS
All white kitchen had been all the rage for a couple years now, but in 2017 we were surprised with a glimpse of another growing trend- colorful kitchens. 2017 gave us pink cabinets, yellow barstools, and green-tiled islands. Now homeowners are more ready than ever to leave behind a predictable white kitchen with white marble and subway tiles and ready to dive headfirst into something more daring.
