What will be the top 10 interior design trends for 2017?
This year the emphasis within people's homes will be on an intensely natural environment

With 2017 set to see interior design services embraced increasingly by individuals and house builders alike, the experts at Alexander James Interior Design have used their 20 years experience to compile a list of the top ten interior design trends for 2017.

Stacey Sibley, Creative Director at Alexander James Interior Design, had this to say: “While the world at large seems to be heading down a curiously unnatural path in 2017 – in terms of its politics, at least – the emphasis within people's homes will be on an intensely natural environment. Textures and tones will reflect the beauty of nature, with a few modern touches thrown in for emphasis. With everyone from smaller home owners to boutique hotels opting to enhance their lives (and their businesses) through interior design in 2017, the UK will be looking fabulous next year – at least on the inside!”

Top 10 interior design trends for 2017:

1. Natural textures in home accessories

Natural textures will come back with a vengeance in 2017 – think matte glazed dinnerware, wooden serving platters and beautiful earthenware bowls.

2. Rough, natural woods

Woods will be big business in the year ahead. From floorboards to tables to shutters, forget highly polished gloss – a natural finish is the only way to go.

3. Ceramic table lights

A big trend for 2017 will be ceramic table lights. Again inspired by nature, these will feature delicate tones and patterning, with greys, light browns and pinks blending beautifully into the other natural materials.

4. Bold trimmings

When it comes to soft furnishings, bold trimmings will both complement and contrast the natural feel of the home over the coming year.


5. Hand painted style wallpapers

Again with the focus on creating a harmonious natural environment, hand painted (and hand painted style) wallpapers will allow the inspiration of nature to flow through the home. These will be paired perfectly with…

6. Pastel tones

From paints to fabrics, pastel tones are essential for on trend interiors in 2017. Yellow will also make a comeback, again in a muted, pastel tone (think evening sunlight on a windswept beach, rather than anything too bright).

7. Textured glass

When it comes to lighting, textured glass is unquestionably the way to go. A rough, natural finish created through texture, while retaining the beauty of glass, will further contribute to the natural vibe that will be so evident next year.

8. Patterned rugs

Rugs will be one way to make a statement in 2017. Patterns that pick up on the pastel tones and natural hues of other objects, while also standing out as a centrepiece, are the way forward.

9. Sculptural chairs

In 2017 we'll see chairs imitating art, blending style and comfort in order to stand out as design pieces in their own right.

10. Graphic inspired art

Graphic inspired art will provide a contemporary take on nature over the year ahead. Natural items like pebbles and blades of grass will be given a new lease of life through the playful interaction of graphics and textures. All in all, 2017 is going to be a naturally beautiful year!

IT is up, to the Planners. If they will only give permission for bungalows on certain (suitable) sites, they will be built.
