Hot Home Trends for Summer 2017

Whether you are in a luxury townhome or a custom house, you can make simple updates to compete with the trends in 2017. From Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery, to marble everything, you can’t go wrong!

Luxury Townhome simple updates

  1. Marble

Marble is undoubtedly the hottest trend in 2017. From more traditional countertops to wallpaper, you can find marble in every room of the home. Often paired with wood or metal, marble has a timeless, expensive aesthetic.

Marble countertops can be pricey, but updates can be made with marble contact paper. Utensil holders, toothbrush holders, and soap dispensers can be found made out of marble. Laptop and phone cases are even trending with marble cases!

  1. Subway Tiles

Subway tiles are nothing new, but they are certainly proving to be a mega style element of this generation. They create a very affordable look and fit kitchen backsplashes or bathroom walls perfectly.

These tiles are versatile and have clean lines. Subway tiles can be used in the traditional horizontal way or, for a newer, more mod aesthetic, consider applying your subway tiles vertically. Faux finishes are also big this year, and subway tile contact paper is a less committed way to add the 2017 trend into your home.

  1. Smart Home Features

As society becomes more and more attached to technology, our homes will quickly begin to adapt. From cellphone-charging nightstands to voice-activated assistance like Amazon’s Alexa, there is nothing technology can’t seem to do.

With the simple activation phrase or voice command, you have music filling the hallways of your homes and pool lights lit. We are said to be experiencing the maturing of the smart home ecosystem.

Custom House summer trends

  1. Wood Everything

From DIY pallet board projects to cerused (limed) wood, adding a “barn wood” feel to your home brings in a rustic element to your living space. Barn wood has been on the high-end market for a while, now, but is beginning to become more universally accessible.

Cerusing is a finish that brings out the wood grain. Grays and light browns are the most common washes for this wood.  Also consider wood tiling. Staining pallets and installing different shapes of wood to create a wall are simple and inexpensive ways to make your interiors unique.

  1. Greenery

Every year, Pantone, the leading company in deciding color, comes out with a color of the year. In 2017, “Greenery” was the winner. It represents refreshment and revitalization, as well as puts off a nature vibe.

Not only is Greenery coming out in the fashion world and commercial design, but it’s all the rage in interior design. Bright green walls and huge statement pieces are only a couple of ways to introduce the fun color into your rooms. You can even consider adding big, bold plants on your walls and floors or hanging from your ceilings.
