Trends for 2017 are causing everyone in the style world to stand on alert! Attention catching details are all the rage. There is little room for the wallflowers at a style party this year. Fashion and décor are all about being noticed in the chicest of ways! It’s not about being loud and in your face; its all about quality, eye-catching details that are oozing with style and taste so you cannot help but notice them!

Personalized details make the difference. Bespoke furniture, high-end fixtures and luxurious fabrics are all the rage. Bid farewell to broadloom and welcome luxurious carpets from faraway lands into your home. Dress windows in silks and linens and hang glamorous lighting from ceilings. It’s all about textural details that create conversation and capture attention.

This trend is great news for independent retailers who will offer strong competition for big box stores with one of a kind artisanal products. Retailers will bring the trend in mass production by offering globally inspired accessories and furnishings. Watch for dark metal and leather combinations from these places. Hints of copper are popping up along with reclaimed wood and faux fur in trendy accessory pieces.

Add colour to neutral backgrounds to create personality filled spaces. Green, purple and golden yellow are hot choices this year. These colours work together and can be easily combined to bring in vibrancy in small doses.

2017 is all about celebrating the unique qualities that make each of us individuals and diverse. Showcase your personal style with details that speak to your individual flair. Bring in coveted artwork, colourful details that make you smile and bring your space alive. Splurge on luxuries that take your room from dressed to fabulous!
