Muted Colors

sdfMuted colors:

Muted colors are those which lack vibrancy or saturation. They tend to lean toward the more subdued end of the spectrum, while still creating a chic look with their subtlety. It seems that the muted colors of 2017 are mellow, but with a little more pigment than the pastel-looking hues that were in last year. In fact, the colors are perhaps more dusky in nature which emits a rich and warm feel to a space. Let’s take a look at how some of these serene and soothing colors can still manage to warm up a room.

Warm neutrals:

People have a tendency of finding new ways to bring elements from the outside into their homes with a sense of style. There is something about combining earthy colors into a space that is not only reminiscent of nature, but that creates a calm and collected atmosphere. A perfect example of these colors is taupe and a muted earthy green. Especially taupe or similar hues would be a great choice for upholstery on bedssofaschairs and even rugs! It’s a color that will remain timeless, and therefore would be a great investment when it comes to furniture.

Dusky blues:

Among the other popular muted colors this year is dusky blue and in a variety of hues. It is slightly muted and quite sophisticated and reminiscent of the beach, but without falling into a kitschy category. Although this shade of blue is far from being bold, it would still be wise to use to accessorize your home. Opt for bedding,decorative pillowsthrowsottomans, etc. These pieces entail a much smaller investment.

swerfeGray:

Not just on the runway, but in home décor, shades of gray are the getting the attention they deserve. Grays in particular create a refined look in the home. Despite being a neutral tone, it is quite rich. Just like earthy tones, gray is equally a good choice for furniture pieces that you intend to keep for years to come. However, it has more of a modern feel to it.

Boho-Chic Home Décor

Yet another very popular trend in 2017 is the laid back bohemian style, which will give your home a very distinct sense of style. You can expect to see mismatched patterns, mixed colors and a blend of vintage with contemporary. Just like the fashion sense, a boho-chic home is one that reflects a free spirited inhabitant. Despite being mismatched, the bohemian style should not be confused with a messy clutter! On the contrary! In fact, the mismatching is done in a selective and intelligent way, which all in all makes the space look very cohesive. Let’s take a look at how you can add a touch of boho-chic in your home!

Rugs:

Perhaps one of the most staple pieces in a bohemian home is the rug. Correction…rugs. Bohemian décor is known to layer rugs in various mismatched patterns and colors. Rather than looking like a hot mess and as if you’ve thrown anything together, it will come off as an eclectic mix. Bring life to your space with anything from Lacy’s Moroccan tile to Posey’s Kilim patchwork in beautiful earthy and muted shades.

Mismatched dining:

Forget your typical dining room set! Another typical bohemian trend is the mismatched dining set. This implies a mix of different seating in a variety of shades and shapes. You can even throw in some color! It is literally the opposite of a traditional dining room, but best for a home that strays away from that status.

Every year in the Spring, the color palette changes. Trends come and go based around these colors, and we tend to shift our home decor, furniture, and overall design themes as a result. It’s incredible, the amount of influence something as simple as a color palette can have, but it also makes a huge statement as to what we find appealing at any given time.

This year, of course, is no different. Pantone has been the standard for upcoming color trends for years. They release a ‘color of the year’ that defines trends for 365 days at a time. But, they also release color palette predictions based on seasons.
