We’ve done our research, scrolled through countless resources and crunched the numbers:
2017, What’s in. What’s out.
Patterns: Go bold or go home. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. But don’t go overboard. There is an art to the craft of mixing patterns into a room. We find patterns more crucial than ever, especially with rooms trending towards a whitewashed finish — patterns will keep your space from looking sterile or like an Emergency Room…

Color: Gone are whitewashed, solemn interiors. Replaced by energetic greens (see Pantone’s color pick “Greenery” for design envy!) blues and tropical hues.
Cork: Floors, walls, wine bottles and all. We can’t be sure how long this one will last but it’s an oldie/goodie situation.
Handmade (Move Over DIY): Artisanal, handcrafted pieces are in. We’ve certainly seen this with the popularity of our lines of ceramics by Helen Levi and Convivial Productions in our shop. Our Pottery Collection is full of handmade pieces from artists across the world.
Meditation Area: Everyone needs a little retreat, right? Now’s the time to create a space within your home where you can go to reflect. This can be a separate room or a little nook, such as the Meditation Corner interior designer, Jaclyn Joslin placed in this recent project.
Art Inspired Wallpaper: It’s not like we dedicated an entire blog post to this movement, oh wait… we have! Art Inspired Wallpaper.

What to Avoid in 2017
Subway Tiles: One of the easiest traps to fall head first. We still adore the look, but enough is enough.
Fiddle Leaf Figs: Not only are these gorgeous trees among the easiest to kill, they’re also falling out of style… maybe it’s their finicky nature. If you’ve adapted and manage to have raised one well, keep on keeping on, but if you missed this one, let it go!
