New Year, New Window Styles and Denver Home Trends

January 11, 2017

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 furnishings, 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 colors are growing in popularity while clear, bright colors are on the wane. 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 evocative 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 browns balancing out the other hues.

The simplest method to add a spark to the color in your house is to paint most of your walls a neutral shade and add in pops of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s simple to use the latest colors in your interior design today and change the little things out when color schemes switch down the road.

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.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures continue to be popular in 2017. Fibers trending up include woven rugs and baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures showing up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it 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 constructed from old, natural wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an organic quality to your home. Other window treatments that add texture are Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.

Metals

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, and 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.
