New Year, New Window Styles and Miami Design Trends01/11/2017David White This time of year is the perfect time to revamp your home design and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window coverings or changing out furnishings, we have the guide to what’s in vogue in 2017 for home fashion and window treatment trends in Miami. Dusky Colors & Pastels Both pastels and dusky hues are seeing more use while clear, vibrant colors are on the wane. Shades of gray, blue and green are very popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the spectrum are reminiscent of nature from sky blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker beiges giving balance to other tones. The easiest way to revamp the color in your home may be to paint some of your walls a neutral shade and add in pops of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s a cinch to have the latest colors in your home now and swap the little things out when color schemes switch in the future. For more color inspiration, take a look at Behr’s colors trends for 201 When thinking about new window treatments, pick ones in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you swap room colors down the line. Natural Textures Natural textures will remain popular in 2017. Fibers that are popular include woven rugs and baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures showing up in new places including on headboards, furniture, and pieces of art. Breathe new life into an old belonging with a small project such as wrapping a frame in twine or creating an interest piece from old wood. Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another level of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built using aged, knotted wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an organic quality to your house. Additional window coverings that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material. Metals Interior design motifs that incorporate multiple metals are popping up across Miami. Wrought iron, brass, and nickel are especially stylish in 2017. You can incorporate metals in your décor by finding industrial, homespun, or retro pieces such as bar stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or brass in your faucets or hardware for a more modern aesthetic. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a great way to get the visual benefit of metals and add an industrial or rustic style to your space. Barn doors are made from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as wheels, tracks, and door handles that are made of different metals.
