New Window Styles and Design Trends for 2017 in Kingsport01/11/2017Jacob Hayes This time of year is the perfect time to revitalize your home design 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 Kingsport. Duskier Tones & Pastels Both pastels and dusky hues are growing in popularity while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the palette are suggestive of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral colors 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 tone 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 revamp 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 adapt down the road. For further color inspiration, take a look at Behr’s colors trends for 201 When thinking about new window treatments, go with 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. Textures Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers that are hot include woven rugs and baskets, rustic 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 house through window treatments add another degree of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made from aged, knotted wood that was once part of fences or homes. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an all-natural feel to your home. Other window coverings that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material. Metals Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate a variety of metals are popping up across Kingsport. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially stylish this year. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, and vintage 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 aesthetic. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a great way to incorporate metals and add an industrial or rustic style to your home. Barn doors are made from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as wheels, tracks, and pull handles that are made of different metals.
