Winter 2017 trends
Keeping warm this winter never looked so good with new season styles featuring ‘reach out and touch’ fabrics, rich, moody tones and soft dreamy watercolour prints. Collectively the new range of cushions, throws and fabrics deliver impact through the subtleties of tone and movement. Cushions, throws, accessories and even rugs can be coordinated and layered to create a warm and cosy space, inviting the owner to snuggle up and stay indoors.
The best trend is always to own your own individual style and the winter 2017 design trends celebrate this, so whether your style is bold, natural or eclectic – there is something for everyone.
Since the beginning of the year we have seen texture feature heavily in design trends. Knotted wool rugs, macramé cushions and chunky knitted throws are already a strong element in interior design. All these wonderful textured materials call out to the owners to come and touch creating a physical connection to our interior.
Get the most from your textured soft furnishing by layering and loading. Mix and match colours and materials to create a more organic look.
The new ‘come and touch’ fabric for this season is velvet. No longer associated with Nana’s slippers, the new season velvet is ready to be draped all through the home.
Velvet is an opulent, rich and decadent material and is now available in bedheads, quilts, throws and cushions. For a rich contrast, team dark navy velvet fabrics with metallic – or soften the look by adding pinks and greys.
Think rich, deep, luxe tones off set with soft elegant pastels……welcome to winter 2017.
As with the textured materials the new season colours are about creating a warm, inviting interior that wards off the cold and invites the owner to stay indoors. These rich tones used in velvet and padded materials create an elegant, yet moody atmosphere and can be added to or softened, depending on personal taste.
Midnight blue, Jade Green and deep purple are some of the classic tones that are featuring heavily. Enrich the colour by adding marble or metalics. Tone down the opulence by adding pastel pinks, greys or watercolour tones.
These rich tones and colours work best when
layered with textures and different materials. You will find these colours available as accents (cushions, throws, blankets) or standalone pieces of furntiure, allowing the owner to build a look that is a reflection of their own personal style.
Printed fabrics, art works and soft furnishings are a very personal decision. We use these final feature pieces to create personality and character, it can be these items that turn your house a home. This season there is something for everyone.
There is a softness to the current range of prints, picking up on the new seasons colours of midnight blues and jade greens but with an feminine edge that evokes a feeling of serenity and peace. If you love colour then look out for the watercolour art that features florals, seaside or bush scenes, turning a simple cushion into a work of art. For something more striking -consider an animal print in a monochromatic tone.
It has been a while since we have seen tribal patterns and prints in the interior design world, but it is well and truly here and it will be staying for a while. Tribal is about connecting with nature evoking a love for everything rustic and hand made. The key to making tribal work is sticking to natural tones and textures that have been inspired by timbers, jutes and animals. Prints include striking black and white graphics or faux animal patterns, including hides and furs.
