New Window Styles and Orlando Home Trends for 201701/11/2017Todd Hansen The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to revamp your home design and window treatments with the new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window treatments or swapping out accessories, we have tips on what’s in vogue this year for interior design and window treatment trends in Orlando. Dusky Hues & Pastels Both pastels and duskier colors are growing in popularity while clear, vibrant colors are seeing less use. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the spectrum are evocative of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans balancing out the other hues. Painting most of your walls in a neutral tone and then adding in pops of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings is one of the simplest ways to add a spark to the color in your home. Then it’s simple to have the latest colors in your interior design now and swap the little things out when color trends switch down the road.

These will go beautifully with any style or color palette and won’t need to be changed if you swap room colors down the line. New Trends in Textures Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers that are popular include weaved material in rugs or baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures popping up in new places like on furniture, headboards, and art work. Think of how you can incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood. Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from old, knotted wood that was once part of doors or buildings. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an organic feel to any house. Additional window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades. Metals Accessories and furnishings that incorporate mixed metals are becoming popular across Orlando. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially popular currently. You can add metals to your décor by finding industrial, homespun, and vintage pieces such as stools, chairs, or lamps that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or brass in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary look. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a fantastic way to incorporate metals and add a streamlined or rustic look to your home. Barn doors are built of solid wood and are available in a wide array of hardware such as rollers, sliding tracks, and door handles that are made of different metals.
