Interior Design Trends to Watch for in 2017

home-6If 2016 was a year full of unexpected surprises, there’s more to come in 2017 — especially when it comes to home design.

We turned to the website Pinterest to find what some of the new and exciting interior design trends are likely to be in the coming year. Here’s what we learned …

Marble Restoration New York — Reclaimed Wood Is Making a Comeback

“Do It Yourself” projects have featured reclaimed wood for many years. Fireplaces, butcher’s block kitchen center islands, and even sconces and baseboards made from wood that has been taken from other places

Fireplaces, butcher’s block kitchen center islands, and even sconces and baseboards made from wood that has been taken from other places combine familiarity with the unexpected. Expect this trend to continue in 2017.

Marble Restoration New York — A Move Toward Simplicity

Busy, cluttered interior spaces are out. Instead, many homeowners are looking to simpler, more streamlined design for their interiors.

The “Hygge” style out of Denmark is growing in popularity. It’s based on the Danish ritual of treasuring the simple pleasures life has to offer. From a design perspective, this can mean ultra-calming colors, and soft touches such as cozy knits and bare wood surfaces.

Marble Restoration New York — Faux Marble Wallpaper

Another trend we found on Pinterest was faux marble wallpaper. Like the stenciling craze that was popular a decade or so ago, some homeowners are turning to inexpensive wallpaper designed to look like real marble, including the requisite cracks and shadings.

While this may be an option for designers on a budget, at Love Marble we prefer the real thing. Still, if you can’t afford actual marble walls in your home, fake marble wallpaper is at least a step in the right direction.

There are lots of new design ideas out there, but the classic look of marble will never go out of style.
