We are ringing in the new year of 2017 and for many of you it marks the beginning of a long over-due home remodel or interior decor update. You've probably been taking notes and pinning your lil buns off of interior design themes and home accessories that you like for as long as you've been wanting to revamp your home decor. However, home trends change just as often and drastically as women's fashion. So, if your home decorating project is just beginning, you're going to need some trending inspiration.

Neutral Walls with Bold, Jewel Tone Accessories
Let me tell you something, I love paint! I've implemented so many paint trends over the years including: accent walls, stripes, two-tone and ceiling color.
But the experts in interior design are telling us that:
subtle, natural hues accessorized with jewel color home goods is IN
and wacky wall paint patterns and colors are OUT.
What the heck is a jewel tone?
Good question, while the answer is a bit obvious. Think about birth stones: ruby, emerald, sapphire, etc. Jewel tones have a rich hue without much interpretation. They aren't pastel. They aren't neon. They are jewel tones.

Industrial Theme / Loft Style Decor
Industry furnishings and home goods like large mechanical part clocks and wall hangings that look rescued or restored are all the rage. They usually look like they belong in a neat, urban loft nestled above a hip pastry shop or Pilates studio.

Linen and Leather (Bulkiness Adjusted)
Slim, Simple Design
Good news is trending leather and linen designs do not compromise comfort or aesthetics.
Simple, almost safe designs in leather and linen are what the professionals are after.
Accessories with clean lines sans the bells and whistles of studding, ornate tufting and shiny frames will be featured in the most breathtaking designer homes.
Keep your leathers and linens natural in hue and texture to stay on the cutting edge of interior design trends.
Example: Mildly distressed camel leather-IN!

Gold, Brass, Bronze
Sad but true, the word is silver will be on a decor hiatus while gold, brass and bronze weasel their way back in. Yep, might as well prepare ourselves for Mariah Carey frayed waistline jeans.
