2017 Trends for Architecture and Design
Interior design changes frequently and new trends come into popularity. Many people may follow interior design just as they follow fashion, often updating their home to reflect the upcoming trends. To keep your home as up to date as possible, or simply impress your guests with the latest designs, you might be interested in the anticipated trends of 2017 for architecture and design. PCL Internorm bring you the predicted aspects of interior design that you’re going to see a lot of in the next few months.
We’ve seen a huge explosion of Nordic and other Scandinavian influences throughout our interior design over the last couple of years. Characterised by simplicity, but not forgetting its unrivalled functionality, Scandinavian interior design is elegant in its own way.
Last year’s hugely popular ‘hygge’ trend is sure to continue into 2017, with clean lines, lots of light and natural elements incorporated throughout each room of the house. But where has it come from?
Nordic countries are stereotyped by bleak landscapes with very little daylight. This caused the need for bright and airy homes, without forgetting that element of cosiness that makes you look forward to coming home each evening.
To achieve a truly Scandinavian design in your home, you should look towards textures such as chunky knit cushions or faux fur throws, while candles can create the cosy escape you’ve been looking for. It’s worth remembering that Scandinavian design isn’t just for winter though; you can adapt it to suit your home all year round.
Fresh colour palettes
The colour of your walls, or even the decorative accents you choose to incorporate in your home, can have a huge impact on a room. It’s never an easy decision when it comes to redecorating, especially when it comes to choosing a new colour. Whether it’s for your living room, bedroom or even kitchen, it’s important to get the colour just right!
Pantone have revealed the colour palettes it believes will be incredibly desirable in 2017. Palettes named Reminiscence, Raw Materials and Florabundant are very intriguing and can add a new element to your rooms this year.
Carefully thought about, the palettes include colours that evoke certain emotions or create a particular atmosphere. The Day Dreaming palette is said to evoke thoughts are are light and weightless, while Forest Bathing is filled with shades of green and blue-green in the hope of reducing stress.
It’s time to experiment with new textures in your home that you might not have considered before. Updating your home this way can provide a much subtler attempt at changing its interior and doing something a little different for the new year, without it staring you in the face.
Marble is becoming hugely popular, particularly when it comes to kitchen surfaces. However, the trend is slowly branching out to other parts of the home as people become more comfortable and even braver with the texture.
‘Cerused’ wood is another growing trend in interior design. Bringing out the unique grain of the wood, it creates a high end look whether it’s for cabinets or bigger pieces of furniture such as your dining table.
