Trend Forecast 2017 Part I

It may seem crazy to think about trends for next summer with cosy layers and Christmas candles just starting to make an entrance (is it finally time to light ours? we’ve been so patient)…

But the fashion world waits for no man (or woman), and with the last model having sashayed down the runway for 2017, the trends are out there ready to be explored and re-interpreted for interior addicts like ourselves.

Trends take their influence far and wide, though we must admit it’s those catwalk moments that captivate us and get us thinking what might be in store for the world of interiors. So many of the fashion trends for the season lend themselves with perfection to the home, impacting what we go on to buy. Think it’s a coincidence that your new velvet pleated skirt matches your sumptuous new velvet cushion? Think again. That, my friend, was written in the stars of the A/W16 fashion shows.

Enough intro, here’s our first set of predictions for SS17 Interiors, French Bedroom Company style…

PALEST OF HUES

Summer and white are a match made in heaven. Think beach side cabanas, with delicately draped white fabric ruffling in the breeze *googles flights to the Caribbean*. White is perfection yet some might consider it a bore, as if white has no imagination or creativity in the home. We respectfully disagree, white brings a feeling of peace and serenity – something we could all do with a little (or a lot) more of. It’s how you pair your pale hero pieces that makes the trend; whether it’s with natural woods for texture and that Scandi cabin-chic vibe, shades of the sky and deep seas reminiscent of Santorini, or a touch of gold glamour for maximum magpie-style impact.

BRIGHTEN UP

The latest runway shows for summer revealed accents of POP colours that look fantastically bold in the home. Bright colours are often one to shy away from unless absolutely confident in your style credentials, but a little bright colour can lift a room by adding intrigue, personality and interest. If you’re not yet won over by the power of colour, think primary royal or turquoise blues for a safer take. If you’re feeling inspired by last season’s Chanel Cruise collection in Cuba, be brave like Karl and add bright, citrus grove orange and lemon hues, with a splash of gold to complete the look…

RUFFLE ROMANCE

Baby steps were taken when stepping onto the scene with the resort shows, but Ruffles and Frills are set to storm both our wardrobes and homes next season. No need for a panic over the prospect of grandma frills, this trend is reinventing the humble ruffle in a magical way. Combine these with muted, sophisticated tones - think palettes of pale greys, crisp whites, & moody midnight hues. Though don’t shy away from a little blush pink for swoon-worthy perfection…

In part two of our 2017 trend report we'll be looking at refreshing your pretty pinks and adding a touch of drama with deep, sultry blues.
