Trends & Ideas

The 7 art trends shaping home decor in 2017

by Milly

This year is all about 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. Reflecting on the popular prints of 2016, check out the hottest trends of this year to refresh your walls.

1. Remixed

Shindig by Inaluxe

This year 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.

2. Greenery

Larkspur by William Morris

Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Greenery’, represents refreshment and revitalisation, and when translated into art prints brings a refreshing home update.

3. Authenticity

Trace Encounters of the Deferred Kind I and Three Prostrations & Nine Kowtows by Wilma Stone

We’re paying 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.

4. Eastern Escape

Pines and cranes and Plum, bamboo and clouds from the V&A collection

This year, art inspired by the Orient influences 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.

5. Rediscovery

Featuring rare lithograph from the Galerie Mourlot as seen in Homes & Gardens

Rare posters and vintage magazine covers sit alongside contemporary works that have a nostalgic feel. Rediscover beauty in the past and mix and match vintage pieces into a modern interior for an eclectic 2017 look. Check out our Vintage Enthusiast edit, which captures this aesthetic.

6. New Modernism

Beautiful Estate Southwark by Oscar Francis

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.

7. Nordic Neutrals

Bird, Peony, Fauna and Vases by Clare Owen

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.
