New Window Styles and Sacramento Home Trends for 201701/11/2017Curtis Orton The start of the new year is a great time to shake up your home design and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your family room, to buying new window coverings or changing out furnishings, we have the guide to what’s hot in 2017 for home fashion and window treatment trends in Sacramento. Dusky Colors & Pastels Both pastels and duskier tones are growing in popularity while clear, vibrant colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many colors on the palette are reminiscent of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans giving balance to other hues. The simplest thing you can do to revamp the color in your house may be to paint most of your walls a neutral shade and add in flashes of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s a cinch to use the latest colors in your interior design now and change the little things out when color trends switch in the future.

These will easily complement any style or color palette and can stay in place if you switch room colors down the line. New Trends in Textures Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers that are hot include woven rugs and baskets, knotted wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures popping up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood. Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made using aged, natural wood that was once part of fences or homes. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an all-natural feel to your home. Additional window treatments that bring texture into your home include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades. Metals Home designs that incorporate a variety of metals are showing up across Sacramento. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish now. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or retro pieces such as stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t shy away from using nickel or pewter in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary aesthetic. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a fantastic way to incorporate metals and add an industrial or rustic look to your room. Barn doors are made from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as rollers, tracks, and door handles that are made of different metals.
