Top 6 Interior Trends Of 2017
We are taking a walk down memory lane and reliving the best 10 interior design trends of 2017
Here are the top 10 biggest interior trends of 2017
ONE: The Industrial look
The industrial look took the interior design industry by storm in 2017. Inspired by indie cafes and hipster trends, homeowners were opting for unfinished raw looks. The unpainted and untreated wall trend, in particular, was gaining waves last year. Not only does it look amazing, it is also a cost-effective way making your home look great
TWO: White vintage interiors
A complete contrast to the previous trend but vintage pieces have been more prominent in 2017. Classic chandeliers, large quilted sofas...these are some of the characteristics of the Baroque period and we are seeing a re-emergence in 2017. However, we foresee the trend will not carry on in 2018 as homeowners are moving away from complex designs to simpler more sophisticated ones.
THREE: Rounded furniture
One of the biggest hits in 2017 were rounded furniture. In particular, we saw a lot of homeowners opting for rounded ottomans and stools. Despite its impracticality, they offer an interesting texture and shape to the environment.
FOUR: Pops of colour
Red was one of the biggest colours of 2017. Fashion runways embraced the colour in may ways- Kate Spade dolled out a whole poppy collection whilst Givenchy launch a full red autumn collection. It's no wonder homeowners are looking to add a pop of colour and liven up their homes as well. Since too much red can be a little overwhelming for a home, it is usually paired with more neutral colours such as white, beige, brown and grey.
FIVE: Darker Laminate
In 2016, grey was a big hit- possibly due to the 50 shade of grey movie. This year, grey has its appearance in the form of darker laminates. Homeowners seem to be looking for moodier and darker tones.
SIX: Hidden Spaces
As Singapore gets more populated, houses are getting smaller and there is a need to maximize spaces. We notice a trend of houses building lofts as sleeping or chill out areas to maximize the space above as well as to create a small area for solitude and rest.
