2017 Design Trends

Today I'm dishin' on a few design trends I think we'll be seeing a lot of in 2017! Let me know in the comments what you think of them and if YOU would go for any of them :)

1. Geometric tiles.
This trend will be seen in backsplashes for the kitchen and bath, floor tiles, and more. This works great in eclectic, modern, mid century and even some traditional and farmhouse (hexagon flooring, anyone?!) styled homes.


I was recently picking out some backsplashes for one of my design clients and found all these goodies:

2. Monochromatic design.
This is a color palette in which you stick with shades (color + black) and tints (color + white) of the same hue. In this example, they went with black, gray and white, which is always a really effective and modern look.

Design tip: monochromatic spaces need a lot of texture to keep the room interesting!

Here's a more warm, beige monochromatic palette from one of my favorites, Barbara Barry:

3. Natural wood.
Cathedral ceilings, wood beams, butcher block counter tops, exposed wood columns, natural wood floors (wide planked!), and of course, shiplap.

An example from Fixer Upper:

And another example with natural wood shelving, which adds great texture to the kitchen!

4. More White.
The white on white on white trend will certainly continue in 2017! There are more white cabinets and lots more white walls to be seen. The great thing about this trend is that it's actually really classic looking and can point towards a variety of different styles. Modern and sleek or a farmhouse examples below:


5. Use of bright green.
A la Pantone's Color of the Year, "Greenery".

In home decor:

In weddings:

6. Texture. 
Especially velvet and raw / honed surfaces.


Concrete countertop:

7. Marble everything!
Coasters, countertops, cutting boards, bookends, water bottles, laptop case patterns, even a SUITCASE pattern! You name, it's done in marble and it's everybody's favorite.

8. Smart home features and apps. 
This shouldn't be surprising! I bet a lot of us have been using technology for a while to operate certain features in our homes. This includes products like the Nest Thermostats (we have one and love it!), Sono's Speakers, Amazon Echo, home security systems, remote controlled shades, etc.

So which trends do you like best? If you can't get on board with trends in a big way, try adding a few things in a small way! Shop the wood, marble, velvet and green looks below:
