Posted On Monday, February 13, 2017
Are you wondering what's hot and what's not in this year's interior design trends? Look no further! We're highlighting some of the best and newest home design and decor looks for 2017 that happen to work especially well in coastal homes, beach houses and vacation rentals.
Here are a few of the most trending ways to update your beach home or vacation rental interior without much effort or expense. Read on to find out what you need to know and just how to do it.
The Rescued, Distressed Look
Design pieces, furniture and decor with character never really go out of style. They bring a sense of comfort and relaxation to any room, and work especially well for the coastal design palette. The rescued look of distressed decor is a good fit for just about any room whether it's a piece of furniture, a mirror, a piece of wall decor or an accent piece. It brings additional texture and warmth and is easily incorporated to an already existing design.
Blue is the New Black
Navy blue is hot this year. The classic navy-blue-and-white combo is a beach house favorite. Blue is everywhere from the dinnerware to the interior design and decor, and everything in between. Accent pillows, blankets, and throw rugs are excellent places to add a splash or two of blue. You may also want to consider cobalt blue, which is also trending this year. 2017 is the year to introduce more blue into your beach home!
Warm, Mixed Metallics
Gone are the bold and brash metallics like shiny brass, glittery gold and sparkling silver. Instead try a warmer mix of metallics that add a softer, gentler touch to your surroundings. Out with the tacky, cheap, gold frames and brass chandeliers and in with the hand-carved frames with gorgeous gold leafing and updated lamps in hammered or antiqued brass. They offer the perfectly warm and lovely accents your room needs.
Big Modern Geometric Patterns
This year is big on bold and modern patterns of the geometric kind. You'll see Mod Geo designs in curtains, bedding, pillows and rugs. Go big or go home because small is out. Look for large, outlined geometric shapes and patterns for an instant update to any decor. You'll be surprised how much this design element can quickly and easily modernize any room.
