According design taste makers, 2017 will bring with it more bold colors, metallic finishes, layered patterns and artisan creations. In this blog I will take you through the trends and demonstrate how you can easily incorporate them into you home.
It's unanimous: Green is absolutely going to be seen all over. Not only have Pantone named their "greenery" color of the year, dark greens will also be seen in interiors everywhere.

3. Metallic finishes
Adding brass touches with hardware and accessories is a simple way to enjoy this trend. Mirrors and paintings with gilded frames are a classic option.
Green, white and brass finishes are beautifully matched in this chic home office. I love the green border around the drawers and cupboards.

4. Raw white with texture
Always chic and timeless, decorating with white makes a big impact no matter what colors it is paired with.
This incredible space has such a neutral color palette. The light captures the detail of the sculptures, fireplace and ceiling detail in the most serene way.

5. Mixed Patterns and Texture
A fun way to add flair to your home, select smaller accessories with pattern so that you can enjoy this trend throughout the day.
No two patterns are the same in this eclectic living room. Stripes, florals, prints and zig zags are all overlaid making big impact.

7. Ornate historic motifs
A strong link to the artisan trend, beautifully carved, stitched and forged motifs remind us of the time taken to create timeless pieces which can be enjoyed for centuries to come while reminding us of the years past.

Light colored timbers with rich grains will be seen more and more. French furniture has been made using these timbers for centuries. French oak and birch pieces are beautifully solid with a lovely patina.

10. Quirky lighting
Changing a light fitting is the fastest way to transform a room and refresh any space. A chandelier in the bedroom adds a luxurious feel, and if installed with a dimmer switch it is utter perfection!
