Top Ten Interior Design Trends 2017




Pantone Greenery, a zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of Spring (cf. Pantone 2017).Pantone announced this fresh and cheerful tone, as colour of the year for 2017, in December 2016. Noting it will be popular for the upcoming season. It has lived up to this claim. Even though green is not always the easiest colour to work with, particularly the Greenery shade, it brings a touch of freshness into your home. Based on the concept of ‘refreshing’ decoration, Greenery is interpreted as a generous mixture of plants, uncommon leaf shapes and healthy grass. This natural colour can be used in many variations, for example in combination with other green tones, greenery patterns and natural elements such as wood, terracotta or marble.




‘Looking at nature with all its exotic flowers, plants, seeds and lots of amazing
Greenery, totally inspired my work!’
Paula Benvegnú,
Texas and the Artichoke



A natural home decor is made up of interior design items inspired by forms found in nature and organic materials. Materials such as: wood, cork and clay can be beautifully integrated into a variety of aesthetics, contributing to a soothing natural vibe. This trend for 2017 is about raw textures rather than the super shiny finished look of the past. Natural home decor has been referenced by many bloggers since the start of the year. The Life Creative blog highlights the pure and unrefined textures used in this year’s interior designs. You can see this trend take shape in furniture, accessories and home decor (cf. Carroll 2017).



‘Today’s over-stimulation in so many different aspects makes people strive for something that brings them back to nature, creating a sense of balance to their lives.’

Zbigniew – Abadoc Design



‘Colour of the moment millennial pink dominates at Milan design week’, is the title of the article written by Dezeen about the Milan Design Week 2017 (cf. Frear- son 2017). The dominant colour was Millennial Pink. “Pink is a quiet, soft and friendly colour – it tends to work well with a lot of other colours and adds a certain glow,” explained Sanna Wåhlin, one of the designers at Swedish studio Note Design. One of the main reasons for the colour’s popularity is that, unlike more vibrant shades of pink, it is free from girly-girl associations, so appeals to men as well as women. The name Millennial Pink was coined to describe a muted shade of pink – somewhere between beige and blush. The key to styling Millennial Pink in the home is choosing contrasting colour tones and ma- terials such as pewter, concrete greys or green toned blue.






‘Millennial pink inspired me because it goes perfectly with food, it
looks tasty and juicy, like a watermelon. So, I combined this feminine colour with my pure, geometric forms. And I love the result!’
Mariana Laan,
Nüüd Ceramics



Refined, regal, dramatic but also incredibly modern and light, this most noble of stones is not only consi- dered as classical and elegant anymore. There are now many uses for this material. It can be found in jewellery and even clothing as a textile pattern. The key to keeping this trend fresh is by using it in small doses, accents and statement pieces, as recom- mended by The Telegraph (cf. Ryder 2017) in their trend report. Marble is at its best in the kitchen or bathroom. We recommend pairing it with anything metallic and shiny. A great combination is with marble and brass or gold.

  6. Car-rara Aard Sidetable by Emile van Hoogdalem
  7. Pita Marble and Pestle by Incipit Lab
‘Marble f inally had its revival in 2017 and is now deemed as a classic mate- rial to create contempo- rary designs including this certain characteristic elegance.’






Terracotta – the material and colour of the earth is back on the trend palette for 2017. From darker tones to lighter and more delicate shades, Terracotta has been slowly making a coming back since 2014. In 2017 it has reached its pitch. Quoting The National Design Academy ‘In recent months, terracotta has had something of a ‘rebrand’, modernising the look and feel with a range of new techniques and styles. The material has had such a surge in popularity that it has been named one of the key trends for 2017’ (cf. National Design Academy 2017). This warm colour adds coziness and a rural look to your interior. You can combine terracotta with contrasting black and white items. This colour com- bination can give your interior an edgy look. Adding terracotta pots or lamps to your interior will add warmth to the space

  6. Bouganville Necklace by Pyla
  7. Diamond 5 Orange Grey lamp by FilamentStyle




‘We chose the material terracotta because of its visual warmth and touch to increase the closeness to nature.’
Xavier Mora,
Studio BAG Disseny





Add a breath of colour and oddness to your home by decorating it with Bohemian design items. The 99Architecture editorial team characterizes this trend as perfect for those who like to mix colours, textures and patterns. They quote the Bohemian look is ‘very forgiving’ (cf. Anthony 2017). Bohemian is an ethnic trend with oriental influences that works well with modern and retro items. This style allows you to give new life to old furniture, to reinterpret accessories and reuse forgotten items. It represents freedom of thought, actions and ideas. Colour is the dominant motif of this fancy style that references vintage and eastern furniture. Fabrics, cushions and carpets are customized with oriental fantasies, embellished with gold details or bronze. The fabrics seem old and this confers a romantic and mysterious allure.

  2. Bear Art Print by Lissa Thimm Studio
  3. Fringe Plaid Deep Pink N 5 by Roos Soetekouw
  4. Forbidden Fruit Pendant Lamp by Glimpt




This years’ yellow enthusiasm already began in Au- tum 2016. It now continues with more diverse shades and pastels, from bright yellow and mellow yellow to mustard yellow shades. Pantone defined the colour and set a trend which is influencing the entire design industry. Country & Townhouse magazine thinks, mustard yellow will be an interior statement in 2017 (cf. May 2016). This classy colour can energize a room and fill it with brightness. You can do this by using just a single home decor accessory, such as a brash yellow clock or vase. Combining this colour with gray revitalizes the powerful yellow tone and creates an exciting atmosphere. It goes very well with monochromatic colours . It goes best in living rooms or even bedrooms.

Hot Products: LiliLite

Discover the LiliLite by Thijs Smeets


LiliLite; the all in one solution for reading in bed
The all in one solution for reading in bed

Award-winning designer comes up with the perfect combination between functional and cool. Say hi to LiliLite – the all in one solution for reading in bed.


Is it a bookshelf? Is it a reading light? Is it a bookmark? It is the solution for all the above: The LiliLite. Aside from looking adorable, its most unique feature is the responsive light switch: the sensor registers if an open book is placed on the peak. The light will switch on and off when you use LiliLite as a bookmark.

LiliLite; the all in one solution for reading in bed


Dutch Designer Thijs Smeets designed the LiliLite. After a very successful Kickstarter campaign it is now an off the shelf product. Smeets came up with this multifunctional design when he and his book-loving girlfriend got frustrated with the old-fashioned night-stand. Bed lamp, glass of water, pile of books… There was always the chance of creating a mess.

LiliLite provides a next level solution: the product can be hung above your bed. It also works perfectly with e-readers or tablets. The shelf itself is made out of single piece of steam pressed plywood finished with an American oak veneer. A top shelf product that fits any bedroom style.



LiliLite Double Bed

The perfect gift for your bookworm mother, a housewarming or as an encouragement for your kids to get them to read.

…or why not treat yourself?


LiliLite is sold via the webshop for 149€ for one, or 249€ for two.


About the Designer


Thijs Smeets

Thijs Smeets (1979) is an Amsterdam based product designer. His talents are recognized by consumer brands like Coca Cola, Nokia and Nike, as well as high-end furniture brands like Leolux and Gispen.

Sustainable Design - Monthly Catches - January

  2. Magi Basket – Prunus by Jinja
  3. Trobla – Wooden Ampfilier for Smartphones – Walnut by Trobla

Designer Spotlight : Fabrikoos – Digital craftsmen

This monthly selection is also a great opportunity to introduce you to one of our brand new designers: Fabrikoos. It is an independant design studio based in Delft, the Netherlands.

Fabrikoos is using the newest digital production techniques to make your brand new piece of furniture sustainably without the use of any screws, nails or glue. Digital production techniques like 3D printing and CNC milling are capable of turning a digital design into a physical object instantly. In this way the European manufacturing industry can once more compete with outsourced mass production. There are even predictions of a 4th Industrial Revolution based on digital production techniques. At Fabrikoos, they know the capabilities and the limitations of their own 5m wide CNC milling machine inside out and integrate this knowledge in their designs. Thanks to the 0.1mm precision of their CNC milling machine, the furniture can be slotted together and taken apart in no time, with no need for fastenings. This type of assembly results in a clear and functional aesthetic, resulting in a pure product made out of one type of (sheet) material, on one (CNC) machine, with one (digital) file: digital craftsmanship! Discover their shop on CROWDYHOUSE.
