As the half way mark of the year approaches, has your home kept up with the hottest interior trends of 2017? New trends come and go, sometimes quicker than we would like them to – but how can we resist keeping up with the times?

DM Design, a Glasgow kitchen provider, has an update on all the design trends that are circulating right now to help you get the most out of your design investment:

Mix & match
When accessorising your home, don’t be afraid to mix and match your patterns and textures – it adds a dynamic twist and more depth to the room. A variety of florals all working together can look great, as can different thicknesses of stripes. An array of textures is also going to come through. Mix fabrics, wallpaper and different surfaces to catch the eye.

Industrial design is here to stay
Industrial design has been present for a number of years and 2017 isn’t an exception. It’s here to stay for the duration – especially in the kitchen. You don’t have to go all-out for a nod towards this trend either, as simply a table or chairs or a statement item in steel can achieve this look.

Luxury colours
2017 is about jewel colours and they are a great way to add a touch of luxury to a room. Think berry colours, rich greens, turquoises and blues. Jewel colours can be used as either accent colours or across whole walls.

Fur for summer
When you think of fur, don’t think that it is only for the winter season. 2017 sees fur becoming a hit even in the summer months that are approaching. Whether it’s lamps, furniture or rugs, fur household items are here for 2017. Add fur touches (in lighter tones) all year round for an instantly contemporary feel that suits the warmer months.

Relaxed and Boho
Finally we have an interior trend that embraces relaxation. Gone are the days of formality – and instead are being replaced with a more Bohemian, relaxed approach to décor. Think plants, woven baskets and printed fabrics which help to achieve this look in a cost-effective way.

The ‘it’ colour
Green is in! And don’t be afraid to be bold. Be brave and take a chance with green – the brighter the better. Green represents revitalization, as well as reflecting the current interest in bringing environmental sustainability into the home.
