As 2017 peaks over the horizon, we take a look at some interior design ideas for next year. If one of your New Year's resolutions is to redecorate then this might just inspire you.

Vintage and retro

Retro style is popular already and it's not set to disappear any time soon. You can put a new spin on vintage furnishings by using soft colours, modern fabrics and delicate patterns. Statement pieces like Delcor's own Retro sofa are an easy way to create the look. We're seeing a lot of 70s inspired home accessories at the moment too; look out for cork, metallic and wooden materials.

Emerald and jade tones have already won our hearts. Now Pantone have chosen “Greenery” as the 2017 Color of the Year, which is a fresh and vibrant shade of green. There are lots of ways to work this colour into your decor, take a look at our green Pinterest board for more inspiration.

Return to nature

As our lives become increasingly technology driven, more and more people are trying to counter balance the effects by creating a natural oasis at home. If you have your eye on the ball then you will have already noticed that botanical motifs are everywhere. One of the easiest ways to 'bring the outside in' is to invest in some house plants.

We're also set to see a resurgence in butterfly motifs and butterfly accessories, no doubt influenced in part by the Issoria and Charonda prints that Designers Guild brought out this year. These cushions in our Northumberland showroom are covered in Charonda fabric and they look stunning.

Geometric shapes

Whether it's a gold hexagon accessory or a monochrome print, geometric shapes will be big news in 2017. We love the intricate pattern of this "Tanuki" fabric by Linwood, recently chosen by one of our customers for their Duke chair.

Custom made furniture

Apparently made to measure furniture is on the up, which is great news for British interior design. Why would you choose mass produced cloned products when you can invest in a unique quality piece that will last a lifetime. Choose a size and a fabric that fits perfectly into your living room and suits your own personal taste. We offer a fully bespoke furniture service here at Delcor so you can select everything from the upholstery right down to the feet.

Upholstered headboards

Winter 2016 saw the rise of Hygge and Scandi style, with an emphasis on soft, cosy interiors. The recent cold weather (thanks storm Barbra!) is all the more reason to embrace this comfortable and homely lifestyle. Upholstered headboards are a great way to make your bed extra soft and luxurious, and we expect them to really take off next year. Look out for Delcor's own bed range coming out in 2017...
