If 2017 won’t be the year to renovate your entire home, here are some interior tips that will add that fresh contemporary look, brought to you by Ray White Double Bay.
2017 is set to turn the interior design world on its head, with a backlash against cool and sleek, next year’s theme is set to be warm and natural…
Warm and natural denote the use of textures and materials that we have not seen since the late eighties, early nineties such as terracotta tiles and cork walls, previously found in office settings.
In terms of colour trends we say goodbye to navy and midnight blues and hello to jewel tones and dark green.
Dark shades of green will become the new must-have dark interior colour. “Dark green as a paint colour for rooms such as a bedroom creates a wintery Scandi backdrop for tan leathers, reindeer furs, brass lamps and natural linen,” says interior design guru extraordinaire Lauren Macer.
Another great way to update your home is with an upholstered bedhead; beds will change dramatically in 2017, with upholstered bedheads set to replace the timber bed frames currently dominating the market.
Finally the ultimate design trend for 2017 is to add a technology free area to your home with the addition of a meditation area or reading nook. Think relaxed furniture and materials, from deep sofas with linen slip covers to oversized love seats, day beds, Icelandic sheepskins, chunky knit wool rugs and floor cushions.
