2017 Winter Markets

Every January, buyers flock to the 3 big home markets: Atlanta, Dallas, and Vegas. While I didn’t attend this year I find that it’s always fun to look through Instagram hashtags and following along with Instagram stories! It really helps me get a sense of what’s to come, interiors-wise, in the year! I found many common themes and lots of beautiful eye candy!

 

BOLD COLOR

I saw a lot of rich jewel tones from Worlds Away.

This dark green paint color was one of our predictions for 2017! Check out our favorite dark green paint colors and accessories here!

 

LAYERED WHITES/NEUTRALS

Layering neutrals is one of my favorite looks. These spaces below are full of interest and prove that neutral doesn’t have to mean boring!

This space made me so happy!! 😀 #handleydrive #americasmart #atlanta #codarus #atlantamarket #interiordesign

I love the legs on this Tritter Feefer dining table!

 

TONS OF TEXTURE

This ties in with the layered neutrals above and is the key to achieving the look. I saw a lot of textured pottery and special furniture pieces.

TEXTURE! TEXTURE! Look at this TEXTURE! 😍🤗😱🤗😍

BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN for CRYSTORAMA

Brian Patrick Flynn’s lighting line with Crystorama is so beautiful! He was kind enough to send me some professional images to share with you!

The Hulton – This collection has an industrial vibe and features a “cage within a cage” design. Available in 3 different sizes in a matte black finish.

The Alston – This collection features a heavy metal drum shade with a thick, rectangular chain! Available in 3 different sizes with matte black or matte white finishes. (The white option has a beautiful brass interior!)

The Hurley – This collection is a modern take on a classic lantern design. The frame is super thick and looks so luxurious in the polished nickel finish.

The Truax – This collection is available in a modern style (simple globe) and more traditional style (metal band). It’s available in various sizes, including a huge 30″x 38″ version!

2017 Interior Trends

With the New Year comes predictions of what trends we will see making their way into stores and our homes. While I think it is interesting to see what is up and coming in design I am a firm believer that your home should be a reflection of you, regardless of trends. One of my favorite quotes regarding interior design is from designer Bunny Williams – “If you love something, it will work. That’s the only real rule.”

MIXING & MATCHING PATTERNS

Mixing and matching patterns becomes easier when anchored by a monochromatic or neutral backdrop.

ART-INSPIRED WALLPAPER

No need for artwork when you use wallpaper like these….

NAVY AND DARK GREEN INTERIORS

Although these were not selected as the color of the year by the leading paint companies they will be EVERYWHERE!

DON’T SHOOT THE MESSENGER!

Here are a few of the design trends we will say goodbye to in 2017 –

POLISHED METALS

“Warm metals like copper, brass and rose gold will continue to be on trend for autumn/winter 2016, but as we move into summer 2017 you’ll see a shift away from this super polished look,” says Diane Cocksey, Senior Interior Decorator at Freedom. “I expect you’ll see a more industrial aesthetic, with black steel and burnished metals taking over the home.”

MARBLE HOUSEWARES

While marble is all the rage in the mass-produced homewares market, we can soon expect a sharp decline in interest. In 2017, be on the lookout for earthy textures like timber, clay and wicker to take its place.

FIDDLE LEAF FIGS ARE OUT, OLIVE TREES ARE IN

I am struggling with this one! Fiddle Leaf Figs are EVERYWHERE. EVERY. WHERE. Cost, maintenance and lifespan are cited as the major factors for the decline in popularity.

Other trends that will be making an exit in 2017……chevron patterns, subway tile, all white rooms and mirrored furniture.

 

We would love to hear your thoughts on these predictions for 2017.

Trend Watch – Welcome To The Jungle

I don’t know about you but I am currently loving the resurgence of this tropical trend in decor and accessories. And its a good thing because I can’t open a magazine or my Instagram feed without being overwhelmed with designs or accessories embracing this element.

DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK

The banana leaf was made popular in the 1940’s when decorator Don Loper designed and installed over 5 1/2 miles of the now iconic, Martinique wallpaper, in the Coffee Room and the hallways at The Beverly Hills Hotel. At the same time Dorothy Draper was beginning a major renovation at The Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia giving us the iconic Brazilliance wallpaper. Truly standing the test of time, the wallpapers remain in both hotels today.

TROPICAL INSPIRED DECOR

If you would like to embrace this trend but aren’t quite ready to make a full commitment, here are a few of my favorite examples of ways to introduce the element into your space now –

FASHION & DECOR COLLIDE

While there used to be an almost 5 to 6 year lag from the runway to interior showrooms we now see an immediate correlation between the two. This is due mostly to the popularity of blogging, social media and communication between the creative minds in each respective field. Here are a few tropical inspired examples of what happens when the world of fashion and decor collide –
