Dec­o­rate to trend in 2017

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Property - Rachel Pre­ston-Bidwell

The 2017 in­te­rior de­sign fore­cast fea­tures a mix­ture of nat­u­ral tones and tex­tures, in­dus­trial aes­thet­ics and plush fur­nish­ings.

Buy­ing into trends can seem daunt­ing, es­pe­cially as they change so fre­quently.

Here’s a se­lec­tion of the top four trends you can eas­ily in­cor­po­rate into your home decor with­out the long-term com­mit­ment. (think deep pur­ples, blues and emer­ald greens).

Stay on-trend and add some key pieces to your home such as pil­lows, throw rugs and metal­lic pic­ture frames.

These op­tions are easy to change up as well when the mood strikes or if you move house.

Mov­ing away from the cop­per and rose gold ac­cents of 2016, the new year will see more black and bur­nished met­als in their place.

Go for in­dus­trial-style cof­fee ta­bles and book­cases, or smaller dec­o­ra­tive pieces such as coast­ers and trin­ket dishes.

Tim­ber, clay, cork and wicker are pre­dicted to fea­ture more in place of mar­ble, which has been trend­ing dur­ing the past year.

Burnt or­ange and earthy tones are also set to take over colour pal­ettes on walls and linen.

If you’re rent­ing and want to spruce up your home with­out dip­ping into paint, try less per­ma­nent op­tions such as colour­ful room di­viders, dec­o­ra­tive plant pots and cork dis­play boards.

Cre­at­ing a com­fort­able liv­ing space has be­come more de­sir­able be­cause of the in­creased amount of peo­ple work­ing from home or time spent loung­ing on the couch scrolling through so­cial me­dia.

In­cor­po­rate knit wool rugs, floor cush­ions and plush so­fas to add more com­fort to your space.

If you’re rent­ing, be sure to speak to your prop­erty man­ager be­fore mak­ing any per­ma­nent changes.
