10 Timeless Decor Ideas for 2017

Upping your decor game to ring in the New Year? Knowing Pantone’s colour of the year should be top on your list. For 2017, it is a refreshing shade of green, invoking nature’s spring foliage. However, this does not mean going on a green rampage, and turning your home into a ‘forest’. But it can be a useful reference for design inspiration! 🙂

 

10 Timeless Decor Ideas for 2017

If you are wondering what the other trends are besides the colour of the year, we got you covered. After scouring through countless moodboards on Pinterest, here are our picks for 10 decor ideas for 2017 that have timeless appeal. 🙂 

 

1. Pops of Green 

 

Include some statement pieces in your home, in various shades of green. Treat your living room as a blank canvas – keep the background neutral and add green splashes here and there, like this fresh lime green ottoman here!

2. Plants


What better way to infuse greenery into your home, than to decorate with plants. Indoor vines, like the Philodendron, beautifully drape themselves over walls and shelves, and add a dramatic flair to your home interior. The trend in 2017 is also to pop bunches of leaves into glass vases and skip the flowers.

9. Hygge


Pronounced ‘hoo-ga’ or ‘hue-gah’, this Danish term for cosiness is THE buzz word. It is basically about making ordinary moments more beautiful through touches of warmth, homeliness. Quite simple to achieve with throws/ rugs to evoke that warm feeling. Adding candles are great to achieve the look too!
