2017 is all about a return to nature, from natural fibres to raw handmade furniture and rugs. Expect to see some 70's influences - going hand in hand with natural yarns, wall hangings and organic shapes. 2017 interiors look lived-in and comfortable with meaningful, story-rich ornaments and furniture.
Here are our picks for the top 4 interior trends you should make note of this year.
1. Deep green
Thinking about a new colour for your walls? Forest, emerald and jade green will be prominent colours in 2017. Lighten the room with macramé wall hangings and jute floor rugs.
2. Nomadic feel
Dust off that throw you purchased when you were backpacking through Morocco – it’s about to get a new lease on life! Get ready to display exotic artisan pieces you’ve picked up through your travels. Tribal patterns and hand-made art and homewares will be a big trend in 2017. If you’re looking to purchase pieces, think about buying items through Fair Trade initiatives to support communities in need, like the ones from Oxfam below.
3. Natural fibres
Keeping in the same vein as nomadic vibes, natural fibres will be big in 2017. Think organic woven textures, reeds, rattan, jute, cane, and seagrass. These fibres can translate into woven baskets, seagrass or cane furniture, or jute floor rugs. Again, if you’re looking to purchase pieces, think about buying items through Fair Trade initiatives to support communities in need. Some of the items below can be purchased from Oxfam here in Australia
4. 70's vibes
Not the psychedelic 70's vibes, but more the retro colours, kitschy 70's style glass ornaments and natural weave macrame wall hangings. Terracotta is the colour making a comeback in 2017 – yes, seriously! But don’t limit yourself to boring square terracotta floor tiles – draw inspiration from antique and rustic tiles styles like the traditional French hexagon terracotta tiles below. The uneven texture and colours work really well with clean, minimalist, contemporary interior design and architecture. You can also introduce some warm terracotta with interior pots sprouting deep leafy green plants.
