Five 2017 interior design trends we love
If you know Nexton, you know we love design in all its forms. While we're studying the world's most celebrated cities, taking notes on perfect streetscapes, and learning from the best in architecture and community design, we can't help but marvel at the stunning interior design trends in homes across the country. Five of our favorites below!
Go natural. This is one we coastal folks have been putting to work in our homes for years, whether it’s in the form of a sweetgrass basket for corralling keys or wicker rockers on our front porches! Country Living’s tip? Pair with soft throws and pillows for balance and comfort. See this trend in action in the Montcrest model by TrueHomes. The warm rattan dining chairs perfectly off-set the cool blue wall color.
Buy local. This is a trend we can really get behind. Business Insider interviewed interior designers who said they were skipping the clicks and shopping for décor as locally as possible. Amazon is tempting, but shopping local vendors in the Charleston region keeps dollars local and helps support artisans. If you’ve been in the Greeting House, you may have admired our custom Landrum table. Beautifully and locally made, these are the pieces you’ll pass down for generations.
Navy is the new black. Navy is perfect parts traditional and modern. Try it on your front doors, paint an accent wall, or get inspired by the TrueHomes’ Lenox model, where navy patterns complement one another in a perfectly appointed dining room. As Elle Décor notes, it also pairs well with just about any color.
Velvet. We’ve seen this luxurious fabric pop up in interior design blogs all year, and we love the texture and interest velvet brings to a room. Use it in a daring color for extra character, like the bold cranberry side chairs in Saussy Burbank’s Mulberry model. Country Living suggests pairing it with natural textures and smooth ceramics to up the coziness factor.
Cozy neutrals. There’s something about a bedroom filled with fresh whites and soothing greys that invites relaxation and quiet. Vogue says neutrals are among the year’s hottest trends, so if bold colors intimidate you, go for calm, cool, and collected. The bedroom in Pulte’s Lily model demonstrates just how to make neutrals work together for a perfect nighttime oasis.
