Summer 2017 Home Décor Trends
If we had to sum up our summer trends is one word it would be “eclectic.” Each of the season’s stand-out pieces has their own unique personalities! That means you can choose to incorporate one or all of them into your home décor. We also love that each trend is open for interpretation; there’s no specific way to decorate with it, so you can add your own taste to it! We can’t wait to see more of these trends popping up as the temperatures climb.
Marble is one of those home décor additions that we’re pretty sure never goes out of style. We love how it can stand the test of time, allowing you to transition other decorative pieces in and out of your space. If you haven’t already added marble pieces to your home, you’re in luck; this season is bringing you options galore! We suggest starting with detail pieces, like a collection of marble cutting boards or the trim along end tables. Give your home the same look without the cost, by using marble “wallpaper.” Added to the top of coffee tables, you can give your home that rich look without breaking the bank!
Years ago this home décor detail could be spotted on fabric headboards and other upholstered pieces. This summer, nailhead details have transitioned onto unexpected places, like lighting fixtures and dressers. We love the character that this subtle detail adds to a space. Even better… you can DIY your own nailhead décor! Head to Goodwill for a new-to-you lampshade, and add your own nailheads from the craft store to the border of it. Voila; trendsetter on a budget!
While summer’s clothing trends were leaning toward brighter hues (hello ‘80s wear), home décor trends are all about jewel-tones! We can’t get enough of the rich, earthy look of deep sapphire, smoky amethyst and intriguing emerald. These tones pair really well with different textures, especially leather and tweed, so they can easily transition their way into your current décor. Give your home that subtle richness by adding jewel-toned pillows or a throw blanket to your living room or bed. Your house guests will love how inviting the bold colors are!
Stylish and functional; exactly what we want with home décor! Baskets are one of those essential home décor elements that we simply cannot live without. This season, you’ll see them with a little DIY touch of paint. This look lends itself to the organic/natural look that is also very popular right now. Start by heading to Goodwill, where we have woven baskets galore! Then add your own touch of paint to help blend the look into your current home décor palette! Place a basket next to your coffee table to help organize magazines, or in your bathroom to hold spare hand towels for guests.
