With 2016 drawing to a close, those planning a redesign, redecoration or refreshing makeover at home or in the office are looking toward color and design trends for 2017. 2017 is set to see a further evolution and development of the trends and color schemes we have seen emerge over 2016, bringing a fresh and characteristic new look to homes and workspaces next year. Certified interior designers remain on the cutting edge of home and office design in every respect, from choosing the right design and layout for your space, to considering health, safety and functionality, as well as identifying the ideal color scheme for living, work or study. The California Legislative Coalition for Interior Design, representing certified interior designers in California, fills us in on the color trends that we can expect for 2017.
Next Year’s Colors
Sherwin-Williams color forecast for 2017 identifies a move towards peaceful and composed tones of taupe, to bring a sense of relaxation and balance into the home or workplace. Taupe combines the earthiness of brown with the subtleness and neutrality of grey, which brings a warmth and calming atmosphere into the home or office. While the color schemes for 2016 centered around subtle, neutral tones, 2017 signals the beginning of warming those neutral tones to add more depth, personality and atmosphere to the space.
Mellow Splashes of Color
For a splash of color in your space, both Sherwin-Williams and Pantone identify some of the most outstanding colors to feature in your home and office next year, adding earthier and nature-inspired tones to the mix, as well as some surprising pastels and bold colors. The palettes reflect ideal color choices for both modern styled contemporary homes, and homes featuring eclectic, classic or vintage looks – style which still remain popular. Cornflower hues are identified as set to trend, along with natural shades in vegetal greens, mustard yellow and brown grey earth.
The pastel choices identified for next year’s trends complement a vintage look, with dusky rose, brandy amber and rich taupe forming a luxurious and classic color scheme. For those who want to add a splash of color and life to the neutral palettes that have been popular in the last few years, rich wine, dark grape and deep sea blue bring a balanced sense of poise and drama into an otherwise subtle color scheme.
Bold, Strong, Color Schemes
For those who want to make a strong statement, capturing attention with their color schemes, and pushing interior design outside the box, one of the color palette trends for 2017 is a combination of stark black and white with bold colors and accents. This exciting scheme encapsulates power and dynamism in a unique and surprising way, with a touch of drama – just like an old fashioned comic strip. While these color palettes feature loud and exciting colors like bee yellow and royal blue combined with pixilated and digitized patterns to make a statement, green remains one of the most popular feature colors reflecting a focus on nature, health and wellness.
With color schemes in 2017 set to become more creative, innovative and unique, now is the perfect time to consult with a certified interior designer as to how you can incorporate these color trends into your next interior design project for a fresh and inspiring look in 2017.
