New Year… New Home | 10 Trending Interiors For 2017

At Ideal Home Furnishings we’re ringing in the New Year by counting down our ten favourite trending interior design trends for 2017.  There are so many exciting trends to take advantage of in the New Year – from subtle to dramatic! Take a moment to explore the New Year trends that will get your house feeling like a new home!

Freshen Up with Green

The it colour of the year is making a big impact on the world of interior design! Inject some life into your home during the winter months by adding rich green potted plants to your kitchen, or go bold and include an emerald green armchair to your living room.

Mixing Patterns

Mixing the patterns you use in a space can bring energy and a chic aesthetic to your home. The key is to choose a foundation of colours that tie everything together – then, you can mix-and-match patterns to your heart’s content.

Replace Black with Navy

Our go-to colour is taking a back seat to navy this year. Like black, navy accents other tones especially well; however, it’s much less harsh. Navy looks exceptionally beautiful paired with lighter blues and white during the spring and summer months, as it pays homage to classic nautical themes.

Butterfly Motif

We saw butterfly patterns pop up on the runway last year, and now the butterfly motif is ready to have its moment within the home. Sophisticated patterns on wallpaper can breathe new life into a dull bedroom or bath. Typically thought of as a spring trend, take the unexpected approach and combine the pattern with deep hues for a refined approach to fall décor.


Modern, stylish, and sustainable! Cork is a welcomed trend in 2017 that is incredibly versatile. Bring warmth and texture into your home by adding a cork wall into your space. Not only will you be able to endlessly pin whatever you want to it, but it also adds some extra noise absorbing qualities!

In-Home Escapes

Sometimes we just need to get away from our phones, computers, tablets, and TVs – and in the New Year, we’re seeing home designs take a literal approach to this feeling. Create a space in your home that is free from technology, so that you can clear your mind whenever you please. You’ll really appreciate this space during the winter months as we find ourselves spending more time indoors.

White Kitchens

Give your kitchen a light and bright upgrade by going all white! Winter will feel less glum with this modern look – plus, Alberta’s sun-filled days are the perfect accent to this airy trend.

Traveller Vibes

Travel trends in design are still going strong, but 2017 will see a vintage inspired look. Think: rustic globes, distressed leather suitcases, and exposed light bulbs – this décor trend is will be a go-to trend to warm up the fall and winter months.


Yes. Terracotta is making a comeback! The Mediterranean-inspired colour is another trend that leans toward bringing warmth and natural materials into the home. From pots to tiles, you’ll find plenty of ways to utilize this earthy tone.

Upholstered Headboards

Simple fabric headboards are finding their way back into the bedroom in 2017. Add a touch of luxury to your bed and include this plush feature to your space!
