Furniture is usually the third most expensive thing a person will buy after a home and a vehicle, so it makes sense that any homeowner would want their interior decorating and furnishings to stay trendy. Now that spring is in full swing, it’s time to look at some of the biggest trends moving forward in 2017.
From emerald to olive, green is back and working hard throughout many homes. According to celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, the color is “strong again” in terms of interior design. Martyn, who has done interior design for Kendall Jenner and the like, suggests adding green accents to dish sets for a quick and stylish fix.
Whether it’s on a work of art or on high end modern furniture, a tropical print is a statement. And apparently it’s a statement that’s back in style. The print has even appeared in new wallpapers throughout homes in 2017. But if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to stay on trend, Lawrence-Bullard suggests adding a few throw pillows to your modern Italian furniture.
High end furnishings are always in, but the age of Ikea has steered consumers away from it for a little while. Now, people are recognizing the value of a well-made piece of furniture. New Jersey-based designer Beth Diana Smith recommends shopping for antiques to find pieces of furniture that will last the test of time.
In addition, shopping for high end Italian furniture is another excellent option. Not only are these pieces always in style, they can certainly stand the test of time as well as any antique.
Unique Lighting Fixtures
Many people believe in using furniture or art as a statement piece, but a lighting fixture can be just as effective, if not even more illuminating. Young Huh, one of Vogue’s five young designers on the rise from 2015, recommends the dining room as a great place to start. In addition, she says unique bedside lamps are also a great addition.
Whether your home is filled with luxury Italian furniture or antique pieces, these four trends will give it a wonderful spring update.
