Home Design: Trends we love in 2017

From fresh colours to faux leather, 2017 is set to be a big year for home interiors and we take a look at some of the trends we cannot wait to try out!



Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Greenery, is all about inviting in the fresh colours from the outside into your home. 



We are super excited about the butterfly trend - gone are child-like design of years before, the butterfly in 2017 is all about grace and elegance. Inviting in rich tones and complex designs.


This trend was first spotted on the runway - which many consider a catalyst for what will happen in home decor - and we are thrilled. Who needs monochromatic when you can celebrate colours and patterns?



Now this is a trend anyone can do - why? 2017 will be a year where faux finishes will trend high. From faux leather to faux wood - and if bought right this is the trend that will save you money right now and hopefully in the long-term.



Sleek design is everywhere, but to according to trend watchers texture is what we will crave in the coming year. This can be attributed to a larger macrotrend of seeking comfort in a world filled with political and financial unrest. So expect textured materials to make their appearances on everything from blankets to sofas.
