New Year, New Window Styles and St. George Home Trends01/11/2017Kasey Udy The beginning of the new year is a great time to revamp your interior fashion and window treatments with the new 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 colors are trending while clear, vibrant colors are seeing less use. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are reminiscent 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 shade and add in pops of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s easy to use the latest colors in your home now and change the little things out when color trends adapt in the future. For additional color inspiration, take a look at Behr’s colors trends for 201 When thinking about new window treatments, go with those in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will match any style or color scheme and can stay in place if you swap room colors down the line. Natural Textures Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers in vogue include woven rugs and baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. You’ll see 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. Metals Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate varying metals are popping 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 vintage pieces such as bar stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use 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.
