Top Design Trends for 2017 Unveiled

December 17, 2016 1:03 am

Do you like to stay abreast of the latest interior design trends? A recent report from Zillow shows that velvet, jewel tones, white marble and built-in bars are forecasted to be the biggest interior trends for 2017.

"Interior design in 2017 will be about bringing warmth and comfort into the home," says Kerrie Kelly, Zillow Digs home design expert. "Homeowners will start to shy away from overly industrial designs that feel stiff or cold. Instead, they will incorporate plush fabrics like velvet and rich jewel tones into their home to make it feel more approachable and welcoming."

Below are the top hot trends from the Zillow Digs® Home Trend Forecast.

1. Velvet

A hot fashion trend right now, velvet is expected to make a big splash in interior design next year. Look for velvet fabrics and textures to weave their way into anything from throw pillows to upholstered couches and curtains.

2. Jewel Colors

Saturated colors like emerald green or sapphire blue will take center stage in 2017. From artwork to furniture, these vibrate hues will be popping up everywhere, bringing life and richness to homes.

3. Marble Surfaces

Marble, especially in shades of white and light gray, will be one of 2017's biggest design trends. Experts predict marble to become an increasingly popular material for countertops, flooring and tabletops, as well as in everyday household items like serving platters or vases.

4. Built-in Bars

Stemming from 2016's popular bar cart trend, homeowners next year will look for a more permanent solution for entertaining within their home. From built-in shelving for craft cocktail fixings, to a small bar seating area, homeowners are enjoying decorating and hosting more classic parties and will seek ways to make these spaces more of a focal point within the home.
