Top 5 Interior Design Trends of 2017

Now that we’ve rung in the new year, it’s time to start incorporating the “new” into other aspects of life. Surrounding yourself with new scenery at home is a good way to satisfy the need for change we all feel at the beginning of January, without committing yourself to a crazy diet or enrolling in classes to learn a new language. 

Switching up your home’s interior design can be a great fresh start for both you and your space. Below, you’ll find the top five interior design trends we’re looking forward to in 2017.

The Year's Top Design Trends

Vibrant Green

Mixing Patterns

Layering patterns with rugs and fabrics in any room of your home can create a beautiful, lived-in effect. To ease into the trend, keep patterns in the same or complementing colors.

Navy is the New Black


The Liberty 2 in Indigo, located in Lakewood Ranch.

Expect navy to become more abundant as a neutral as an alternative to blacks and dark grays.

Artisanal Over DIY


The Tidewater in Watermark, located in Fort Myers. Styled by the Charlene Neal PureStyle team.

DIYs from Pinterest and Etsy give way to hand-blown glass and beautiful woodworking.

Tropical Prints

Interior design takes its cues from the runways, so expect tropical prints to be big in 2017 from wallpapers to fabrics and artwork.

Change Things Up in 2017

If you’re looking to make a few subtle design changes in 2017, these five trends can all be easily incorporated with small accents and simple fabric swaps. But if it’s a bigger change you’re after, we suggest starting with a clean slate — and a new construction home from Neal Communities is the perfect fresh start for a new year.

The design examples above can all be seen in person by visiting the model homes in any of our southwest Florida communities, and each model home is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’d like to incorporate some of these design trends into your own home, the Charlene Neal PureStyle team is here to help transform your space for 2017.
