New Window Styles and Design Trends for 2017 in Jacksonville01/11/2017Trevis Bruce The start of the new year is an ideal time to update your home design and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your living room, buying new window treatments or changing out furnishings, we have the guide to what’s in vogue in 2017 for home design and window treatment trends in Jacksonville. Duskier Colors & Pastels Both pastels and dusky colors are trending while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are very popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the palette are evocative of nature from sky blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker beiges balancing out the other tones. Painting most of your walls in a neutral tone and then adding in pops of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings might be one of the easiest things you can do to revamp the color in your home. Then it’s simple to have the latest colors in your interior design today and swap the little things out when color trends switch down the road. For additional color inspiration, take a look at Behr’s colors trends for 201 When assessing new window coverings, choose those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will go beautifully with any style or color palette and won’t need to be changed if you switch room colors in the future. Textures Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers that are hot include weaved material in rugs or baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures popping up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood. Incorporating texture into your design through window treatments add another layer of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed using aged, weathered wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an intrinsic feel to your house. Additional window coverings that bring texture into your home include Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material. Metals Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate multiple metals are becoming popular across Jacksonville. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially stylish in 2017. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, homespun, and/or vintage pieces such as stools, chairs, or lamps that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your faucets or cabinetry for a more contemporary aesthetic. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a charming way to bring in some metals and add a streamlined or rustic style to your space. Barn doors are made from solid wood and are available in a wide array of hardware such as wheels, tracks, and pull handles that are made of steel.
