New Window Styles and Design Trends for 2017 in Bluff City

January 11, 2017

This time of year is the perfect time to revitalize your interior fashion and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window coverings or changing out accessories, we have the guide to what’s fashionable this year for interior design and window treatment trends in Bluff City.

Duskier Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are on the wane. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are suggestive of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker beiges giving balance to other tones.

Painting most of your walls in a neutral shade and then adding in flashes of color with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings might be one of the simplest things you can do to add a spark to the color in your home. Then it’s a breeze to have the latest colors in your home now and change the little things out when color schemes vary in the future.

When assessing new window treatments, pick ones in neutral tones like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will match any style or color palette and won’t need to be changed if you swap room colors down the line.


Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers in vogue include woven rugs and baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures showing up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and pieces of art. Add new life into an old belonging with a small project like wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood.

Incorporating texture into your design through window treatments add another degree of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from aged, natural wood that was once part of fences or homes. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an organic feel to your home. Other window coverings that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material.


Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate varying metals are popping up across Bluff City. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially stylish now. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or retro pieces such as stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or brass in your faucets or cabinetry for a more modern look.
