January 26, 2017
BOOKMARK

What's in and what's out? Even if you aren't a stickler for trends, it's always useful to keep track of the latest and greatest on the market; New home, new references, as they say.

Thankfully, you won't have to flip through magazines or webpages to suss out what's in vogue. Pinterest has made it easier for everyone with its Pinterest 100 list, a style report compiling the most popular themes set to define 2017. So, what are the top 9 interior looks that people will be pinning and obsessing over this year?

1. Modern Nightstands ( + 721% )

Often overlooked in a bedroom, your bedside tables are now enjoying a full-blown revival. Forget bulky bookshelves or standing lamps; From Scandi-retro styles to DIY projects, the modern nightstand can hold a light, store your books and is basically superman.

2. Marbled Walls ( + 303% )

Marble mania is far from over, but we are perfectly at peace with this turn of events! From marbled accessories to countertops, 2017 is introducing the next (literally) big marbled feature - Full-on, marble walls. Can't afford a floor-to-ceiling slab of rock? Wallpapers are an increasingly popular option to get that luxe look for less!

When picking furniture for your marbled wall, keep it simple and in solid colours, so as to avoid clashing with the distinctive print.

3. Hype for Hygge ( + 285% )

Step, aside 'Scandindustrial', the new 'It' word on the block is 'Hygge'. Pronounced as hue-gah, this Danish term about living simply and comfortably is popping up everywhere, from dedicated blogs to cooking books. How does that translate into homes? We're set to see more cosy touches, like big woolly blankets, sheepskin rugs and ambient candles.

Hygge is not just a look, but a state of mind. Create a space that you know you can relax in, whether its having a calm, creamy palette, or soft comfy furniture to melt yourself in.

4. Indoor Plants ( + 260% )

No balcony or garden? No problem. 2017 is looking to be a year of greenery ( much like Pantone's Colour of the Year), with more homeowners adopting low-maintenance plants to jazz up their interiors. If you can't get your hands on an air-plant last 2016, be prepared for a waiting list, along with various hanging vines and riotous indoor blooms again. Sigh.

5. Copper Is The New Metallic ( + 90% )

Our love for shiny, metallic textures continues with an updated, new twist. Gold can border on tacky, while silver's a tad too cold; But the rosy sheen of copper accessories are an uncommon sight, making it a stylish and luxe highlight in your interiors.

Gleaming copper make great standout pieces in a flat-looking space. Here, these pendant lights inject a ritzy look to the contemporary dining area.

6. Navy Is The New Black ( + 80% )

Blacks are timeless, but they are so overdone; Navy is the next go-to colour for homes looking for a dark, classy look now. Swap out boring monochromes with a hint of inky blue in all sorts of features. For example, you can go for matte navy walls, or place glossy navy accessories as an accent shade.

No need for fancy feature wall treatments; A solid shade of navy is enough to make a bold statement, and works great with all sorts of textures, such as timber.

7. Wooden Tiles ( + 51% )

Adore the parquet floors in your home? Here's one more way you can get your woody fix without looking like you're living in a tree house. Instead of the usual subway or mosaic, wooden tiles in fancy finishes and patterns are now increasingly popular for that 'rustic' look (perfect for 'hygge' too!).

Against smooth wall and floor finishes, the timbered feature wall provides an offbeat, tactile experience in the bedroom.

Interior Designer: Mr Shopper Studio
Location: Riverparc

8. Acrylic Glass ( +50 %)

Who says a piece of good-looking furniture has to, well, look? See-through, pieces project a hint of classy quirkiness, and has the illusion of taking up less space. Whether its plexiglass frames, lucite tables or Ghost chairs, we're seeing more homeowners favour acrylic glass for its lightweight and durable properties. Perfect if you're the clumsy, bull-in-the-china-shop type.

If you are planning to incorporate block-like hues like this monochromatic home, clear acrylic furniture helps to add a hint of glossy shine without breaking your colour scheme.

Interior Designer: Dan's Workshop
Location: Edgefield Plains

9. Farmhouse Chic ( + 40% )

If Hygge and wooden tiles are anything to go by, we are definitely seeing a trend towards more rustic interiors. All hail the farmhouse style, which thankfully does not require one to actually live in a barn. Emulate that countryside, laid-back feel with creamy colours, traditional-style furniture and (don't forget) wood, loads of bleached-out wood.
