12 Home Design Trends for 2017, According to Pinterest
The Trend: Navy Blue
Though black has long been a decorating darling, designers are now enlisting Navy blue for their go-to dramatic hue. When paired with pops of white, red, or yellow it has an especially beachy vibe.
The Trend: Indoor Vines
While Pinterest predicts the popularity of indoor climbing plants to reach new heights in this year, we’re equally smitten with the wallpaper variety. No watering can required!
The Trend: Ceramics
The ceramics craze isn’t one to glaze over. When it comes to garden stools, serving pieces, and even bakeware, Pinterest is fired up for this earthy, organic offering.
The Trend: Faux Marble
When it comes to a trend with staying power this motif is the real deal. Thanks to an outcropping of faux marble wallpapers (you can buy this pretty number here) you can count on the soft, subdued design to be a top pick for accent walls, powder rooms, and more.
The Trend: Farmhouse Style
Farmhouse staples such as cozy quilts, weathered antiques, and patinaed collections are hot topics. To make the style feel at home on by the sea try adding a few vintage nautical pieces to the mix.
The Trend: Flamingos
While flamingo-themed parties are technically what has Pinterest tickled pink, we also expect to see the unabashedly fun motif have legs in the coastal design world, like in this fabulous wallpaper.
The Trend: Copper
This year copper is the showstopper for hardware, light fixtures, side tables, range hoods, not to mention exterior accents such as weather vanes and gutters.
The Trend: Hygge
The pared down Danish aesthetic known Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is taking Pinterest by storm. Expect the simple style to give way to monochromatic color schemes and cozy bedroom retreats with ample texture.
The Trend: Acrylic Details
More: Tour this beach house.
Whether it’s a smart set of barstools or a handsome floating frame, acrylic accents and accessories are this year’s clear favorite for adding a gleaming (and easy to clean) finish to a space.
The Trend: Modern Nightstands
Move over bulky, could almost-be-a-dresser, nightstands—2017 is having a fling with clean-lined side tables that corral bedroom clutter without adding to it.
The Trend: Balcony Gardens
Beach-dwelling gardeners rejoice! Compact container gardens are taking root on balconies across the globe. (And Pinterest is chockful of ideas for creating your own.) The growing trend is equally at home on coastal porches and patios.
The Trend: Wood Tile
Look for the eco-friendly material—which is a dead ringer for the real deal!—to pop up on everything from fireplaces to flooring. We especially love it as a shrimp boil-, bathing suit-approved option in beach house kitchens and baths.
