If redecorating your home is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to tweak, or even totally ditch, your old decor and bring in something new. From modern decor ideas to sea-inspired textures, inspiration abounds in the Sunshine State. Below are some trends you’ll see in Baer’s Furniture stores during 2017.
According to Pantone, a company known for predicting industry color trends, 2017 is the year of green. Saturated jewel tones such as emerald and earthy yellow-greens along with warm neutrals and splashy shades of blue and orange. Jewel tones are very attention grabbing, so the juxtaposition of bold color and neutral tones can liven up the overall interior.
This trend is perfect for Florida decor. Shown in bright orange against a neutral backdrop, the Twin Palms St. Barts Cocktail Ottoman from Tommy Bahama demonstrates this trend. The tropical print pillow brings in green, and the more muted orange of the sofa creates balance. The neutral tones and natural texture of the bent rattan and leather thong wrap add to the Florida feel.
The mixed materials trend will continue into 2017, but with a fresh, new feel. Think metal and marble, glass and metal, metal and wood, wood and glass – just about any permutation you can imagine. The continued popularity of mixed materials signals the growing popularity of minimalist and industrial design.
Toss out any preconceived notions you have about furniture and add some mixed materials to your Florida decor. Mixed materials design comes to life with Studio 7H Dining Room Set from Hooker Furniture. A mix of materials such as rope, metal, and walnut veneers bring a modern, organic feel to this style. The unexpected mix of materials, finishes, and textures breathes life into this space.
Terracotta and cork are two design trends that fit perfectly in Florida decor. They add style, warmth, and casual comfort to spaces. The “new” terracotta has a natural, matte finish and earthy tones that look great on floor tiling or accent walls. Cork is often found on coffee table bases as well as accent walls – it’s great for absorbing noise. With the resurgence of tiki culture and its aesthetic – a growing trend in 2017 – terracotta and cork will play a big role in achieving an island look.
Boutique living is all about curating the right art collection, books, bedding, and accessories that will make your home seem like a getaway. A big trend for 2017, you’ll see this a lot in Florida decor. Bring in some tropical inspired pieces to add a sense of casual worldliness to your home. Not only will you feel as if you are on vacation, your guests will feel welcome and relaxed in your home. This means hiding or clearing your home of clutter, choosing bright, cheerful bedding, and taking advantage of natural lighting.
