New Year, New Window Styles and Denver Home Trends

Gary Harding

The beginning of the new year is a great time to update your interior fashion and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window coverings or swapping out furniture, we have the scoop on what’s hot this year for home fashion and window treatment trends in Denver.

Duskier Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier hues are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of gray, blue and green are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are reminiscent of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutrals are still found throughout the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker tans balancing out the other hues.

Painting some of your walls in a neutral color and then adding in flashes of color with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings may be one of the simplest things you can do to update the color in your home. Then it’s simple to use the latest colors in your interior design today and change the little things out when color schemes switch in the future.

When thinking about new window coverings, choose ones in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will go beautifully with any style or color scheme and can stay in place when you swap room colors in the future.

Natural Textures

Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers trending up include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures showing up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. Add new life into an old belonging with a small project such as wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood.

Adding textures to your home through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made from old, knotted wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an organic quality to your home. Other window treatments that add texture are Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Home designs that incorporate different metals are becoming popular across Denver. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially popular in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by finding industrial, homespun, or older pieces such as bar stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t shy away from using nickel or pewter in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary look.
