So much of our lives in 2016, and for some years previously, was dedicated to all things Scandinavian. Is there anyone in the land who isn’t embracing hygge?! For 2017 though, things are moving on a bit, and fortunately there’s nothing too ‘extreme’ to prevent us from following fashion this year. Trends are chic and, for the most part, won’t need a complete start-from-scratch overhaul.
2017 is going to be all about green. The colour green, rather than environmental responsibility, but if you can achieve both then so much the better. Whichever shade of green you like is fine, from lime to emerald to British racing, and you can embrace the colour completely or just add a splash here and there as accents.
It works well in various rooms in the home – a rug in a bedroom, cushions in your living space, glasses or crockery in the kitchen – but the green trend is also one that transfers well to commercial spaces, too.
Perhaps try combining the tropical theme with green by placing a stunning ‘architectural’ plant in your office space, or update your whole look with bespoke commercial desks from a specialist online supplier like http://simonkohnfurniture.co.uk/our-work/commercial/reception-areas-and-desks/.
Totally Tropical Prints
Our home interiors preferences often mirror what we’ve seen on the catwalks at the biggest fashion events, and if 2017 is no different, expect to see bold tropical prints everywhere, from plants to flamingos, in bright, bold colours. This trend is perfect for those who want to add a few cheaper updates to an otherwise neutral scheme.
If the idea of bold tropical prints is not for you, take comfort in the fact that the other end of the spectrum is also in demand this year – muted tones, neutrals in beige, gray, white and blush pink are always classy.

If some of the trends just seem too much to fully embrace in one room, add touches, just as you might when dressing yourself for a new season. Going head to toe in a colour you wouldn’t normally wear is maybe too big a change, but adding a bag or scarf or cushions in a home setting might seem more achievable.
