Interior design is always evolving — and for 2017, experts say you can throw the old rulebook out the window and start fresh.
Revamping Your Home’s Color Scheme
According to Gary McBournie, you should create a color scheme palette before you do anything.
“I come up with a basic color scheme for the whole house, and then I take that from room to room,” says McBournie.
Finding New Focal Points
Don’t tuck away your antiques and unique pieces.
“Use and enjoy your antiques and unique finds,” says designer Bunny Williams. “Especially in a utilitarian room like the bathroom.
Use Short Furniture to Make Your Rooms Appear Taller
Designer Todd Romano is a big fan of creating strong verticals.
“Avoid the horizontal,” says Romano. “I adore large mirrors because they add scale to a room. I also [keep] furniture low-slung, so the rooms seem taller.”
Add Color to Window Trim
Designer Meg Braff and Jeffrey Bilhuber say you should focus on window trim.
“Window trim is an often-overlooked opportunity to make a statement,” says Braff.
“I often end up painting them green, to blend in with the landscape. Or sometimes I paint them pitch black, so the muntins practically disappear in the evening,” says Bilhuber.
