Hard to believe it’s almost the new year! 2016 has been a crazy year for me and, with the move to Seattle quickly approaching and the wedding planning underway, I have a feeling 2017 won’t be much different! But, as we look ahead to the coming year, a few changes we can definitely count on are seeing some new trends across interior design.
2016 introduced us to many new interior design trends; some that we loved and others we just wanted to make disappear. So, what can we expect in 2017? Here’s my list of predictions of What’s In and What’s Out in 2017.
Quick Disclosure: Before you read any further, please be warned that 2017 may mean saying goodbye to a few of your favorite trends. As always, keep in mind that just because something is on trend, doesn’t mean it’s the right style for you and your home. Trends will always come and go. Some stay longer than others and some disappear more quickly, but return a few years later.
Whatever the case, this is my advice to you: When it comes to anything design, while I always recommend taking the latest trends into account, always remember to stay true to the looks that suit your own personal style. After all, you’re the one who is stuck living with it every day!
