The year is coming to an end. Which means it’s not only time to reflect back on projects of years past but also look forward to the future and think about what the new trends on the horizon. So without further adieu, here is my forecast of interior design trends 2017*! This is completely subjective and totally just based on my own personal taste and where it is being drawn. 


1. Spots These are different from polka dots—they are abstract and asymmetrical and lean a little towards animal print without being completely cheetah. Spots can push the envelope for someone who is used to more traditional stripes or polka-dots and can help create an updated transitional look.  

2. Updated Animal Print. Animal prints are taking a departure from the traditional leopard and cheetah. New patterns based on feathers, like this amazing Schumacher Wallpaper, are great ways to add a little unexpected playfulness to your space in 2017.

3. Dark Moody Colors. The steady popularity of dark saturated colors has definitely made them more mainstream in current interior design trends.  I think we will be seeing more colors like Benjamin Moore Van Deusen Blue and Sherwin Williams Iron Ore covering full walls (not just accent walls) in a lot of bedrooms, dining rooms and powder rooms in 2017!

4.  Floral Print. I can’t believe I am typing this as I sit here. I never would have thought I would be one to get behind a full-on-floral print. But it is happening.  I find myself tagging and dog earring floral samples all the time for my current projects and renovations. Look for large scale  floral, with a painterly-feel in the same bold saturated colors that are on the walls in 2017. Mix them with the spots and updated animal prints and you have a recipe for interior perfections.
