Now that Christmas is well and truly over and the January blues are fizzling out, you can take the time to look at the 2017 decorating trends that will really bring the life back into your home.

2016 was the year for pineapple prints, Scandinavian-inspired themes and industrial chic which took over the homes of many around the UK. If you fell victim to the art-deco trends, then worry no more as 2017 is here and you can now take back control over your interiors and add a splash of colour along the way. Stuart Wylie Decorators are on hand to make sure your home is ready for the new year ahead using quality materials and following your guidance.

Tropical Prints

The Telegraph recently reported that ‘jungalow’ is the way forward for 2017 even though it could be minus temperatures outside. As well your home interior, the jungle theme has been seen as a key feature on the catwalk for designer brands such as Marc Jacobs, Prada and Emanuel Ungaro.

Through wallpaper designs, feature ornaments and pillow cases you can add the pattern wherever you want and feel the jungle vibe from floor to ceiling – or just on the couch if you like the idea of being minimalistic. Bring the jungle indoors and feel refreshed from the moment you wake up!

Marble Features

Combining the natural features of industrial, white, grey and the cleanliness the material brings, marble is being used in homes more and more throughout the whole world. With various forms to add a touch of marble into your home, you are never stuck for choice and House Beautiful have come up with ‘12 Chic Ways to Incorporate Marble Into Your Home’.

  • Table Lamps
  • Clocks
  • Decorative Boxes
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Coasters
  • Bed Linens
  • Vase
  • More

Rather than splashing out on large chunks of marble, add these smaller features throughout you home for a modern 2017 feel without the price tag.

Grey and Neutral Colours

The colour grey was a strong favourite throughout 2016 with Dulux stating that the palette was a collection of dreamy, “soothing, delicate shades of soft pastels”. With various shades, depths and tones to choose from you can make your own mark without being garish. Grey complements many other colours such as soft pinks, blues, whites, blacks and basically any colour splash you want to incorporate throughout your décor.

Copper and Bronze

Metallic features are still on trend and probably will be for a while. Us Britain’s love adding a touch of glamour where we can and the copper/bronze craze is a quick and cheap way to add a certain richness amongst other bland features.

Copper candles, mirrors, clocks and vases are becoming more and more common on the high street at affordable prices for anyone. The bronze metal finishes add warmth to any room and can complement many other design features.


Lawrence-Bullard said that “Texture is really important” and that we are going to be seeing more and more of it throughout the year. From light fixtures, to wallpapers, to rug designs and even tables, we will see texture being a key design element that is so much more than just a thick blanket.
