Popular Trends Coming in Fall 2017

It’s the middle of summer, but fall is just around the corner, and there is no time like the present to start preparing if you plan to put your house on the market soon.  If you intend to do any remodeling or staging of your home, it’s important to know what trends will be enticing to buyers in the coming months.  Here are some predictions about what will be “in” and “out” for fall and winter 2017.


While the leaves are changing to autumn colors outside, everything inside will be going green.  Especially kitchen cabinets.  Surrounded by natural woods and accented with cream colors, it is the perfect hue for a cozy room.


If you love color, this is the perfect time to add it to your home.  Interiors are moving away from all white and gray.  Instead, people are embracing warm, rich colors with green being one of the most popular.


This trend is for those of you feeling overwhelmed by electronic devices.  Creating a “tech-free” sanctuary out of your bedroom will provide a place for relaxation and rejuvenation.  Soft blankets, a cozy reading corner and light filtering curtains will give the room decadent spa feel.


It’s time to switch things up in the bedroom.  We spend a lot of time in our beds, so why not have some interesting bedding?  Set the mood for relaxation with these calming colors.


There is nothing more soothing than the feel of velvet. This luxurious fabric is perfect for fall and winter when mixed with rough, natural textures like reclaimed wood or woven baskets.  And if you prefer smooth metals and ceramics for your décor, velvet gives the room a tactile softness.  If you don’t want to spend money on a piece of furniture, you can add velvet touches with pillows and throws.


All marble, everywhere is headed out.  This doesn’t mean you should rip out your marble counter-tops – they are timeless and classic.  And a few marble accents here and there are ok too. But using marble all over the house is not going to be popular anymore.  Instead, opt for earthier materials with worn finishes.


Accessorize your home with woven textiles to bring warmth and depth to your rooms during the colder months. Hang baskets for a focal point on a wall, put plants in wicker stands and use large baskets to hold things such as magazines, pillows or throws.  Offset the natural texture with soft and smooth accents.


Like marble, rose gold and copper seem to have run their course.  While real copper fixtures will always be in style, the overly shiny, fake copper accents that have been so popular for a few years are beginning to look dated.  Instead, the trend is moving toward aged brass.

These are just a few of the home decor trends that are trending now.  Whether you are redecorating to sell your house or simply to enjoy it yourself, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to make changes you will love.
