Exciting Interior Decorating trends

Last year, trends were dark and dramatic where as in 2017 there is a definite earthy feel to the colour scheme with highlighted colours that makes the main focus warmth. The goal is to create a relaxing, warm and cosy ambience.

Dark Green

Dark shades of green will become the new must-have dark interior colour as we say goodbye to navy and midnight blues. Dark green as a paint colour for rooms creates a luxurious backdrop for tan leathers, brass lamps and natural linen. Used in a feature armchair or cushions and decor items as an accent, it adds depth and can bring in the colours from the outdoors.

1Terracotta tiles

Terracotta tiles are one of the newest trends set to hit the interior design market in 2017. They work especially well in the kitchen, but if you want to give the home a warm, Mediterranean feel, you could also use them in the living room. Don’t just think of flooring either. Terracotta tiles could be used to create an eye-catching feature wall. Or if you want a subtler design, use them to create a fireplace.



Not only is cork a stylish material idea that adds warmth and texture to spaces, it’s also ideal for absorbing noise in our increasingly large, open plan homes.


Industrial aesthetics

Warm metals like copper, brass and rose gold will continue to be on trend for this year and early next  but as we move into the later half of 2017, you will see a shift away from this super polished look. You will see a more industrial aesthetic, with black steel, burnished metals and raw, earthy textures like timber, clay and wicker taking over the home.

4Upholstered headboards

Beds will change dramatically in 2017, with upholstered headboards set to replace the timber bed frames currently dominating the market. Whether you opt for the classic model in neutral colour with buttons, or a plush one in velvet, a headboard is an easy way to update and add instant glamour to a bedroom
