Renovating your home – Interior trends for 2017

If you are renovating right now, you may be drowning in a sea of paint samples and interior design
magazines. Sometimes the more research you do, the more confused you get. What you need to

Layers of texture

Paint isn’t just matt, satin and gloss anymore. Hitting your walls with a suede or eggshell finish can
give you the luxury that you desire. Add this to natural elements such as wooden floorboards or a
cement wall and you are building some interesting layers of texture. Keeping colours similar and
using texture in the same palette gives a relaxed feeling to any interior. Ceramic and linen
homewares are a good way to finish off this look.

Colour, Colour, Colour

Pantone’s Colour of the Year ‘Greenery’ can help to liven up any interior palette and has been
described as nature’s neutral. Consider adding it to bright pops of melon, citrus and peach for an
edgy look. Another colour trend is to use deep, saturated colours such as navy, emerald green and
fuchsia pink. Velvet covered sofas add to the sophistication of this look. You will want to have a well
stocked bar to go with this interior combination, so that you can sit and enjoy the luxury of the
room.

lights hanging from the ceiling. Choose whatever metal finish that you are drawn to. Chrome, rose
gold or copper. Anything goes. If you are fearless, you can almost get away with anything.
