Fall 2017 Interior Trends

#1

Believe it or not, summer is already over, and many of us are already setting our sights on what home design and hues will be huge in fall and winter. After scouring Interior design magazines and Pinterest we came up with the list of trends very popular in the next season. Of course, remember to choose what you love, regardless of what might be in style. But as the weather shifts from summer to fall, it can be fun (and not to mention easy and cheap) to make a few changes to your house as well. Here’s what interior design experts predict will be “in” for fall and winter 2017.

Velvet

#2
What could be more soothing than velvet? The fabric feels luxurious and welcoming for fall and winter, and when combined with rough natural textures (think reclaimed wood and woven baskets) and smooth metals and ceramics, it adds visual interest and tactile coziness to a room. Don’t have the budget to spring for an upholstered chair like the one pictured? Add velvet pillows or a velvet throw instead.

Woven Texture

#3
Don’t underestimate the depth woven textiles and accents bring to a room—especially during cold-weather months. Hang baskets for a focal point on the wall, put plants in wicker stands, or swap out your light fixture for a basket pendant light. Again, off-set the rough texture with soft velvet or hand-knit wool throws and smooth metal side tables, mirrors, and ceramic accents.

Brass

#4
Brass is the new copper, especially when incorporated into furniture in an overt way. Take this sectional with a beautiful brass frame, for example.

Dark Paint

#5
Forget farmhouse white and gray! This season, it’s all about drama. PPG Paints, Glidden Paints, and Olympic Paints & Stains all announced cozy shades of black as their 2018 Color of the Year—Black Flame (PPG1043-7), Deep Onyx (00NN 07/000), and Black Magic (OL116), respectively. Not ready to go completely over to the dark side? Adding chocolate brown to your decor is the best way to add some luxe—especially in the fall. Also, swap out your lighter colored pillows and throws for this rich hue.

Emerald Green

#6
Nature-inspired hues are all the rage and what’s more perfect than a rich emerald green? For a dramatic look opt for a deep shade, or if you prefer a more serene space then choose a hue a few tones lighter. It’s a luxurious colour that looks great teamed with blush pinks and copper accessories. Break the look up by using prints and patterns in contrasting shades to add interest.
