Wallpaper Everywhere (Even the Ceiling)
From the enchanting fabrics of ‘Once Upon a Time’ by Schumacher to the playful pops of hand-drawn design from Pollack’s ‘Piece by Piece’ festive prints have been the splash of color needed in our grey-washed design world of late. Not to mention some animal paw prints, such as this Cowtan & Tout fabric.
Pretty in Millennial Pink
Every top paint brand has caught onto this generational color affliction. Benjamin Moore’s Chippendale Rosetone compliments a country kitchen or romantic bedroom as Calamine by Farrow & Ball is spotted in unexpected places like a dining room ceiling.
High Gloss Paints
High Gloss added high drama to this year’s interiors. Lacquered furniture, glossy painted walls and shimmering accessories turned up the gloss quotient in 2017 homes. From wood flooring to colorful cabinetry nothing was safe from a colorful touch.
Luxurious light to dark shades have painted phone cases and interiors this year. Rich jewel tones and their lighter cousins added depth to 2017 and an ethereal brightness to drawers, tapestries, shower curtains and walls!
Faux Fine Details
Elitis is the master of masterpiece faux. The Indomptée Collection is acrylic pony hair you have to feel to believe. Even the HGTV ‘Fixer Upper’ superstars below are fans of faux cabinetry.
Marbles and granites add a cool touch to 2017 coffee tables and countertops. In some cases, stone is used as natural art with Aria Stone Gallery, creating a statement wall with environmental undertones.
The Outdoors Are In
Warming up interiors has never been so easy. Outdoor/Indoor collections of fabric and furniture have brought the best of both worlds together. Brunschwig & Fils’ ‘En Vacances’ offers a textile escape to paradise year round, while ‘Atmosphere’ a new Gloster collection, and ‘Mokum’ available at Holly Hunt, flip outdoor furniture inside out.
Big Brass is back
Brass is bold, beautiful and timeless and conquered 2017 metalwork. Marnie Jamieson, of Marian Jamieson Lighting & Furniture, (with new lighting collections found in A. Rudin), says, “Brass is Back and We Love it. Always have.”
In 2017 a singular coffee table was not enough. Stacking and nesting tables took over the scene proving sometimes less is not more. In honor of Knoll’s 80th anniversary, the 1948 Model 75 Hairpin Stacking Stool, was reborn into the modern hairpin stacking table.
