TREND: Blue & green pallets and sophisticated textures
MYRNA PORCARO, Architect and interior designer, Myrna Gondim Porcaro
Since Pantone just named Greenery its color of the year, expect to see strong green trends. I would say all shades of green and blue will be in the most successful pallets this year.
Likely to continue in popularity, and one of my favorite trends is customized artistic finishes on walls, wallpaper, furniture and objects including one-of-a-kind collections made by designers, specific for each client. This makes the pieces exclusive and very charming.
Other trends to look for include-Sophisticated textures that push us to touch such as velvets, leathers and suede.
TREND: Tropical Design
EMMANUELLE BERNARD, Interior designer & founder of L’Appartement
2017 will see a continuation of the tropical trend that started last year. There will be lots of greenery prints but balanced by more sober furniture inspired by Bauhaus architecture and graphic design. Look for Geometric shapes, black lines, and palm tree inspired prints that will look even more fierce and wild. The typical 2017 interior is a mix inspired by french post-impressionist painter Henri (Le Douanier) Rousseau jungle, and architect, Le Corbusier’s famous Villa Savoye in France, complemented by bold objects. In terms of colors you can expect a lot of dense green, a deep blue that can vary from navy to peacock married with pale pink, gold or a bright red.
TREND: Color Wave
FANNY HAIM, Interior designer, Fanny Haim & Associates
A trend to watch out for is the use of color. We are seeing brand new color ways coming in from vendors that are refreshing, innovative, and different – it’s almost as though we haven’t seen these colors before. We are particularly excited about Holland & Sherry’s new Primo Lux Cotton Velvet and Linen Chintz collections that are offering a fresh take on color. We are enthusiastic to utilize these tones in a controlled fashion or as we like to call it: ‘controlled color’. These strong, yet highly sophisticated hues are going to work well with rich, contrasting counterpoints. It’s all in the ratio.
