New Window Styles and Home Trends for 2017 in St. George

January 11, 2017

The beginning of the new year is a great time to revamp your interior fashion and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your family room, buying new window coverings or changing out accessories, we have tips on what’s hot this year for home fashion and window treatment trends in St. George.

Duskier Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are trending while clear, vibrant colors are seeing less use. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are very popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are evocative of nature from deep blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutral tones are still found in the color palette with whites, grays and darker browns giving balance to other shades.

The easiest way to revamp the color in your house may be to paint most of your walls a neutral tone and add in pops of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s easy to have the latest colors in your home now and change the little things out when color trends vary in the future.

When assessing new window treatments, go with those in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and can stay in place if you swap room colors down the line.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures will remain popular in 2017. Fibers that are hot include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures showing up in new places like on furniture, headboards, and art work. Think of how you can incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or making artwork out of old wood.

Incorporating texture into your design through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built from aged, weathered wood that was once part of doors or structures. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an all-natural feel to your house. Additional window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate a variety of metals are showing up across St. George. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially popular currently. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, and/or retro pieces such as bar stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your sinks or cabinetry for a more fashion-forward aesthetic.

Barn door shutters and sliding barn doors are a stunning way to get the visual benefit of metals and add an industrial or homespun look to your space. Barn doors are built of solid wood and are available in a wide array of hardware such as wheels, sliding tracks, and door handles that are made of different metals.
