  1. Dark furniture is coming back in

Darker pieces of furniture are back, and we will see plenty of richer and darker tones in side tables, coffee tables, cabinets or consoles.

Green is also coming in and these rich dark green colours work perfectly with the deep timbers, as well as making a room feel peaceful and luxurious. Think ornaments, cushions and window furnishings.

  1. Blonde wood is going out

Blonde wood was all the rage in 2016, but is now on the fade out.

  1. Terracotta is making a come back

Believe it or not, 2017 shows a surge in terracotta pots and terracotta tiles and décor items. Pair this look with some beautiful plants, and it will lift a space and give it some life.

If you keep the terracotta as a matte finish, it will not only add depth but also warmth to your home.

  1. Copper is going out

The 2016 copper trend is on its way out, according to leading Interior Designers, so keep that in mind.

  1. Cork is making a comeback

Not only is cork a stylish material that also adds warmth and texture, it is ideal for absorbing noise in our increasingly spacious, open-plan homes.

  1. Midnight Blue and Navy are going out

According to Interior Designers everywhere, in 2017 we say goodbye to midnight blues and navys. “Goodbye.”

  1. Woven baskets are on trend

Whether it be a linen hamper, a rustic planter or a woven lamp shade, woven baskets are making way to be a popular and trendy piece for any space. Keep this in mind when pairing the look with window furnishings.

  1. Scandi is out

That’s right. Scandi will be gone soon. There is a place for it, but more in the refined, traditional sense, rather than in the more generic way that we have seen it in recent times.

Of course, trends are always coming and going. Individuality is the real value item in any space. The best design happens when you take bits of the trends that are appropriate to you, and reproduce it in a way that is unique and individual.
