Home Decor Trends 2017

It is hard to believe that 2017 is officially here!  Assuming that your tree, wreaths and garlands are down and holiday ornaments safely packed back in their boxes to await their debut once again in the blink of an eye, it’s time to think about keeping your home on trend for the upcoming year.  Sometimes splurging on just a few new things for the home is all it takes to bring a sense of “newness” and what better time to do this than now?

Here are a few trends we see for the upcoming year:


The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is “Greenery”.  Here we have selected some of our favorite items in this hue of green – see if something catches your eye!  It would be fun to bring in the “color of the year”, even if it’s in just one signature piece:




We love seeing the beauty of nature brought into the home.  Bees and butterflies are two of our favorites.  The butterfly is known to represent endurance, life and hope — and in some cultures, it represents resurrection.  Any way you look at it, the butterfly inspires happiness!  These little miracles of transformation are literally and figuratively uplifting to behold!  The bee often symbolizes diligence.  Paired with beautiful birds, these colorful creatures can bring out the best in a room!

Lacquer and lucite have been big trends in home decor for a number of years now, and while we love all things shiny, it’s nice to bring in some natural fibers to a room for balance.  We love rattan, papyrus and jute. Here are some of our current favorites:

It is fun to peruse the internet for framed wall art, but it’s even more fun to scout your local area for an emerging artist and buy a unique piece for a key area of your home.  Think of it as a conversation piece and what will differentiate your house from that of your neighbors.  Here is one artist that I work with in Greenwich, and her work is one-of-a-kind. I like her abstract paintings, below I have posted two samples.  I often find undiscovered artists on Instagram, such as Teil Duncan Art (she is pictured below, check out her art and let us know what you think):
