Get ready for a colourful 2017 filled with mixed patterns, bold blooms, post-modern shapes, and a twist of oriental art. Shy of colour? Fear not, the Scandi home decor trend continues, with a fresh take on nordic neutrals and relaxed geometrics. As we reflect on the popular prints of 2016, it’s also time to look forward and refresh your walls for the year ahead.
2017 is all about shapes. Whether it’s graffiti, digital art, collage or painting, this new wave of visual abstraction is making its way into every art form.
In 2017 we pay homage to the honest makers and crafters. Whether it’s the hand-thrown forms of a ceramicist, the tactile shapes of a textile designer, or the expressive mark of a painter, we look for honesty and authenticity when it comes to art.
This year art inspired by the Orient will influence your home decor. Think delicate oriental paintings, ink brush and pen marks, floral simplicity and bold origami patterns. Discover more ideas in our blog post 6 stunning interior ideas from the Far East.
Modernism, characterised by its experimentation with form, materials and new techniques, comes to our walls this year in the shape of architectural pieces, modernist masters and new graphic designers. For more modernist ideas, try our mid-century modern edit.
Forget stark whites and clean lines, this year the Scandi trend takes on an altogether softer look. Think geometric shapes in loose formations, hand drawn illustrations and fluid, painterly shapes in a pastel palette. If you like the Scandi vibe, read our post on scandi living room ideas.
