New Year, New Window Styles and Destin Home Trends01/11/2017Eric Ramsey The beginning of the new year is a great time to revamp your home design and window treatments with the new styles of 2017. From painting your family room, to buying new window treatments or swapping out furnishings, we have tips on what’s in vogue in 2017 for interior design and window treatment trends in Destin. Dusky Tones & Pastels Both pastels and duskier tones are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular as are dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the spectrum are suggestive of nature from sky blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutrals are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans balancing out the other shades. Painting most of your walls in a neutral color and then adding in flashes of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings may be one of the easiest ways to add a spark to the color in your home. Then it’s a breeze to have the latest colors in your home today and change the little things out when color trends vary after some time. For further color inspiration, check out Behr’s colors trends for 201 When considering new window treatments, choose ones in neutral tones like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will go beautifully with any style or color palette and can stay in place if you switch room colors down the line. Textures Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers trending up include weaved material in rugs or baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures showing up in new places including on headboards, furniture, and pieces of art. Breathe new life into an old belonging with a small project such as wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork from old wood. Adding textures to your house through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from aged, natural wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an organic quality to any house. Other window treatments that add texture are Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material. Metals Interior design motifs that incorporate different metals are becoming popular across Destin. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially popular currently. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, and/or retro pieces such as stools, chairs, or lamps that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or brass in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary aesthetic. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a great way to bring in some metals and add an industrial or homespun look to your house. Barn doors are made from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as wheels, sliding tracks, and door handles made from different metals.
