Top 2017 Interior Design Trends for Sydney Homes
Looking for some inspiration to give your home a stylish makeover? Whether you live in a posh Sydney suburb or the CBD, you’re sure to find these interior design trends popping up. Here are some of the most noteworthy trends for 2017.
Here’s a functional design trend that’s making a comeback in both residential and office spaces – the cork feature wall. For children’s bedrooms, dens, urban-chic kitchens, and creative studios, cork adds warmth and creates a welcoming, down-to-earth ambiance, while also helping to absorb noise; while giving you the freedom to pin up anything you want on your cork wall.
Instead of focussing as much this year on colours and materials, interior designers of 2017 are making statements with texture. From the grainy look of woven panel blinds to a shimmering velvet divan and plush mohair carpet, this is a year of sensory dynamics being used to create inspired spaces.
While the modern minimalist sentiment will always have a place in the heart of Sydneysiders, 2017 emphasises the use of vibrant and enchanting jewel tones to draw more life out of interior spaces. Amethyst, ambers, sapphires, and emerald green are all being established as the accent colours du jour.
Some are using mesmerising mosaic tile patterns along shower walls, entranceway floors and as kitchen splashbacks. Others have turned to elegant patterned rugs and roller blinds. Every where you look, Sydney is seeing a lot of creative usage of interior design trends that incorporate functional home décor items to make unique points of visual interest.
More and more people are turning to furniture pieces that incorporate charging docks, audio features, or other tech. As the Internet of Things, IoT, movement makes its way into home design, this is a trend for 2017 that is going to probably continue trending for the next few years.
Lots of Greenery
Greenery, a bright, lively shade of green, was named as the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2017. Interior designers are featuring this fresh shade on walls, blinds, carpets, and accent pieces. The colour is also motivating a trend towards more natural interiors. Throughout Sydney you will find plenty of indoor plants and natural, sustainable materials being used in different ways, like timber Venetian blinds and aluminium nightstands.
