1. Desert chic
Think natural materials, cacti, palms and tribal textiles which combine for a gorgeous tactile look.
To complement the desert chic trend, white and cool tones are a must to keep the look clean and not too eclectic.
Plus, this trend, with its low maintenance plants, is perfect if you're a serial plant killer.
2. Mixed patterns
Mixing prints in your home (yes, just like in your wardrobe) can easily add more colour and give you the opportunity for some daring decorating.
Bold or large prints can be used tastefully when mixing and matching patterns. A general rule is to start off with a neutral colour on the walls and flooring, and use a few layers of bold prints in either your rug, or in a few key pieces of furniture.
3. Upholstered bedheads
Beds will change dramatically in 2017, with upholstered bed heads set to replace the timber bed frames currently dominating the market.
Whether you opt for the classic model in neutral colour with buttons, or a plush one in velvet, a bedhead is an easy way to update and add instant glamour to a bedroom.
Named the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year, "Greenery" is meant to represent refreshment and revitalisation.
With so many shades, tones and styles to choose from, it’s very easy to incorporate, no matter what your style preferences are.
For those who are space-starved and craving a patch of greenery in their homes or offices and want an option that is low maintenance, a terrarium is a perfect solution.
6. Retro lighting
Lighting, in its many shapes, forms and purposes, is as crucially important as furniture styles and arrangements, paint colours and rugs. Like windows, the type, number and placement of lighting fixtures will dictate a room’s brightness and, in many ways, the “mood” of that room.
Opt for retro lighting styles to add that extra pizzazz to any room.
7. Marble table tops
Marble, especially in shades of white and light gray, will be one of 2017's biggest design trends. Experts predict marble to become an increasingly popular material for countertops, flooring and tabletops, as well as in everyday household items like serving platters or vases.
Equal parts luxe and glam, marble tables are here to stay.
