What's on trend in 2017 and how to get the look in your home

Next year's home trend predictions are a complete shake up of the recent home trends we've become familiar with. Those in the know when it comes to trends and design have predicted something vastly different to the home trends we've seen the last few years.

2017's interior trends are all about warmth. The cool tones of marble, white and grey offset by copper highlights that were so readily adopted in 2016, are now gone. In its place is a new dawn of luxury and vibrance with deep, rich hues and textures.

Whether you’re renovating, building a new home or simply want to update your home's look, these are the trends you'll want to include:

Jewel tones

It's all about making that space light and bright in colours reflective of shimmering gems like emerald, amethyst, topaz, ruby, and sapphire. Complement with luxurious velvet textures and gold metallics.

In 2017, natural textures will feature heavily and the warm, earthy colour of cork has seen it pop up as a unique material for home trends. Think cork stools, cork side tables or even a cork feature wall.

Before you start thinking of orange-brown terracotta pots and paved outdoor patios, terracotta in 2017 is fresh with a natural, matte finish that will add warmth to your interior.

Materials like steel and metallics like brass, antique gold, bronze and onyx will be key features returning in 2017. Think metals mixed with raw and earthy materials and textures such as terracotta/clay, cork, timber, wool cushions and throws, sheepskin rugs, leather and linen.
