For 2017, Greenery was chosen by Pantone as the color of the year. Greenery signifies a fresh, new beginning and reflects a return to nature. It is also significantly different from Emerald, which was chosen by Pantone in 2013 to symbolize luxury.
Along with Greenery, Pantone has chosen a variety of warm colors that are perfect for spring and summer. These colors include Island Paradise, Flame, Lapis Blue, Primrose Yellow, Island Paradise. Bottom Row: Hazelnut, Kale, Pink Yarrow, and Pale Dogwood.
Throughout the spring and summer, you’ll see these colors emerge in upholstery fabrics, home accessories, linens, and more. If you’re looking for to reinvigorate your home décor, this year’s color trends offer you a wonderful array of exciting colors to choose from and they are fairly easy to incorporate into your existing spaces.
While last year was all about "hygge," the Danish concept of "coziness," for 2017, expect to embrace "lagom," the Swedish idea of "just right," or just enough. Unlike hygge, which is a feeling, lagom is more about leading a balanced life.
If you're looking to a way to translate this concept for your interiors, start thinking in terms of the negative space in your home rather than the furniture that is there. Which elements could you replace with more simplified versions? How can you improve the organization of your space?
Buy Scandinavian furniture, made from eco-friendly materials, such as bamboo. In addition, you can also benefit from reorganizing your home office, to allow you to work while standing. Simple furniture pieces, with clean lines and natural fabrics are also trending.
Going green is yet another way that you can become a lagomer, or person that aspiring toward living a more lagom lifestyle. By using less energy in your home, reducing water waste, and taking other steps every to minimize your environmental impact, you can start to reap the benefits of a reduced lifestyle.
So far, 2017 has been all about incorporating natural elements. In the past few years, painted furniture has been very popular. However, natural wood is now making a comeback. This year, the trend is lighter woods, namely oak and teak furniture.
Lighter woods are also in because they pair well with the Pantone colors for this year that are inspired by nature. Like the colors, lighter woods are reminiscent of spring’s freshness and really add warmth and excitement to the ambience of any room.
Integrating Technology With Furniture
With the rise of smart homes, more and more consumers want their furniture to help make their lives easier. As 2017 progresses, more products are starting to hit the market that integrate technology with furniture. From a simple cord organizer to a USB port built into a desk, furniture that is gadget-friendly is trending.
In addition, furniture that integrates technology also helps consumers to save space. With people seeking to make the most of their urban living spaces, each square foot becomes a valuable commodity. As a result, consumers want furniture that helps them to save space by compacting the amount of space that their gadgets and accessories take up, as well.
Modular furniture systems are attracting more attention in 2017. People that regularly change their furniture arrangements or prefer simpler lifestyles will enjoy this trend that allows for a dynamic ever-changing ambiance within the home.
Restrained space is still a big challenge for a lot of urban dwellers and with more creative furniture options for smaller spaces, they will be able to find a happy medium that allows them to decorate their homes without the clutter of too much furniture. Simple luxury is in this year and these furniture items are enhanced by their natural materials and warm colors rather than ornate designs.
