For the full article, head on over to HGTV’s Design Blog. But while you’re here, grab a sneak peek of some of Keri Sanders’ most inspired ways to utilize Spring 2017’s hottest fashion trends in your home design!
Runway To Home Design Idea #1: Citrus Tones
Citrus tones were everywhere on Spring 2017 fashion design runways and exhibits. If you’re willing to be bold, those tones can make their way into a vibrant home design. From sunrooms to kitchens (and even open plan living spaces), bright citrus tones inject a dose of sunny optimism into your home design.
On the Spring 2017 Pantone color palette, 3 tones can qualify as “citrus” in our opinions: the jazzy orange Flame, the soft yellow Primrose Yellow, and the off-lime of Greenery (the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year). While Greenery is the easiest to use in an “all-over” context, don’t be afraid to experiment with dashes and splashes of Flame and Primrose Yellow in your home design accents, decor and accessories.
As for Keri’s advice? She would “recommend adding pops of bright yellows, oranges and pinks via patterned throw pillows, vibrant artwork or even a bold accent wall. ”
Runway To Home Design Idea #2: Textures
“Wicker furniture, painted brick, grasscloth walls — this spring is all about creating interest and depth by incorporating texture within the home,” Keri Sanders explains. All of those trends work beautifully with the home design trend of “greening” your space. Brick, wicker and grasscloth enjoy great design synergy with fresh green plants, ferns, and Pantone Spring 2017 color selections like Greenery, Kale and Hazelnut.
For a more “industrial” aesthetic to your home design, use textures like exposed stone, brick, textured subway tile, and faux stone made from concrete. Cork tile is also a unique way to introduce texture to your flooring.
