980 490 Nisha Muire
Decorating your Toronto home is a highly subjective affair. However, if you are like a lot of homeowners out there, then you will want to know what the upcoming trends are in order to spruce up your place for the summer season. While a number of the trends are whimsical and won’t last longer than one season, others require a larger buy-in as they will affect your living space for some time to come. Let’s take a look at five of the top trends for 2017.
1. Navy and Green
That’s right – all of the greys and whites of the past few years are being replaced by navy and dark, rich blues as well as with shades of green. Using Navy as an accent wall, in furniture or just as a theme running throughout your home is the most forward trend right now in home design. Green is another great accent colour that can pop-up throughout your décor for a more pulled-together look.
2. Marble/faux finishes
Faux finishes are hot and marble is the hottest finish of them all right now. Not just in flooring, but in wallpaper and faux finishes. Marble is the new chic, go-to for those wanting to glamour-up their surroundings without shelling out the big bucks for some heavy stone.
3. Copper/warm hues
Copper and brass are making a big comeback in home décor. The warm tones throw richness and sophistication into any space you envision while also creating an inviting ambiance.
4. Matt finishes
When it comes to appliances, shiny is in the past. Trending now are matt finishes that take the emphasis away from the appliances and put the focus more squarely on the lines and design of the space that they occupy. It is a cleaner, sleeker look and makes a bold statement.
5. Texture and Geometry
Another hot trend right now is filling your home with interesting textures and equally striking geometric shapes. Naturally, you won’t want to go all out when it comes to either theme, but choosing a few key pieces to incorporate into your decor will go a long way towards updating your current look.
Keep in mind that just because something is trending doesn’t mean you have to jump onto the bandwagon. If a trend doesn’t really fit with your sensibilities or style, then it isn’t work incorporating. After all, you’ll have to live with it!
