Can’t Miss Design & Décor Trends for 2017

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 20, 2017

It’s a new year which means it is time for new design trends that can be used to refresh your home and make it your own. Without further ado, we give you the top design and décor trends for 2017:

1) Neutral Palate with a Splash of Color

In addition to using neutral colors such as beige, taupe and pure white to create a simple and warm atmosphere in your home, try adding a splash of rich color. Colors that are considered jewel tones, (i.e. dark red, purple, and blue), can create a welcoming feel to any room. (Fun fact: Pantone named greenery the 2017 color of the year.) These hues can be added to any room by using side chairs, throws, flowers, books, vases, picture frames or other accent pieces to make the space your own – feel free to get creative!

2) White and Wood Kitchens

This year’s modern kitchen is not complete without a good ol’ simple and clean look. This can be done by upgrading to white marble or quartz counters and installing all matte appliances. Add to the simplicity by having all white or lightly-colored wood cabinets. Not only will this help the kitchen appear more spacious, but it will also make the kitchen feel fresh and airy – thus creating the perfect spot to prepare a meal with the whole family.
