This year, Pantone named “Greenery” their colour of the year. This refreshing and revitalizing colour symbolizes new beginnings and a connection to nature. Paint your walls, or invest in décor pieces that will reflect the year ahead. Along with the lighter and airy interior that “Greenery” provides, the dark purple shade, “Shadow” from Benjamin Moore is also expected to trend this year. This colour is a rich and royal amethyst tone that fades into a lustrous coal hue. Consider decorating with lighter accents, like gold, as yellow is the complementary colour to a dark purple.

Hardwood

Design trends in hardwood floor also change from year to year, and in 2017, wide planks with cool grey undertones will be the popular go to. Grey tones and lighter natural wood colours tend to make it easier to decorate with as they give you more opportunities for paint colors, furniture, window coverings and throw pillows. The combination of the wide planks and these natural hues will create a more sophisticated design element in your home.

Accents

If you’re looking for accent pieces for a room get ready to say goodbye to beige and hello to jewel tones. Deep opulent colours like emerald green or amethyst purple are what designers are recommending you accent with this year. Consider switching up your pillow shams or pick up some decorative pieces to liven up your surroundings.

Metals
