Pantone’s Colour of the Year
We welcome the 2017 Colour of Year – Greenery.   A symbol of new beginnings, this vibrant green is reminiscent of nature and sunny days ahead. Look to see this colour on both walls and accessories in 2017!

Upholstered Headboards
This trend will add flair and warmth to your bedroom. In 2016 we saw reclaimed wood headboards, but 2017 is heading in a softer direction. Update your master bedroom by adding an upholstered headboard to bring in a sophisticated and classic feel. You’ll be seeing these emerge next year, so get a head start and make your own.

Your New Favourite Space
Create a feeling of coziness in your home with a nook. If you already have a breakfast nook, a mudroom, or a reading nook embrace the trend and show it off. Or perhaps you’d like to construct one or the feeling of one? Here is some inspiration to design your new favourite space for 2017.

Jewel Tones
Pastel blues and pinks were the trend last year. In 2017 gorgeous jeweled tones will emerge! Whether you’re using an emerald or sapphire-inspired wall colour, or magenta and turquoise pops and accessories, your room will be stylish and opulent. Velvet fabrics will accentuate these rich tones.  Here’s how to pair these lavish colours.

Vintage Upcycling
You know what they say, what’s old is new, especially when you’re upcycling antiques into a new-to-you and unique piece. Try your hand at up cycling with one of these creative ideas. Take one of Gramma’s treasures and incorporate it into your contemporary space by painting it a fun colour or repurposing it into something unexpected.
