Alaska Summer 2017 Latest Trends in Home Decor

As we are enjoying our summer solstice, many people find themselves ready to step forward into a fresh look and style for their home. In this article, we will share some of hottest trends dominating home décor, so far,  in 2017.

Go Green

Bright Green was named the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year and aims to add refreshment and revitalization to your home. This color can be incorporated as the wall color, or even as a splash of color in an area rug or piece of furniture. To use the color and further amp up the life it brings to the room, consider adding live indoor plants. Climbing plants have seen a surge in popularity since the fall on Pinterest and are an excellent way to add life to any room.

Prints and Textures

This season is all about mixed prints and interwoven textures. The runways in the Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week were filled with tropical prints and mismatched fabrics. Trends seen on these runways historically translate into the trends we see in the home décor sector. Textured surfaces give a space more dimension and character, resulting in a more interesting room.

Navy Blue is the New Black

Navy blue is popping up all over home décor. Whether it be painting and entire room or a statement piece of furniture, navy blue adds subdued character and mystery to any space. Navy can be paired with virtually any color, without being as harsh as black or making space appear smaller.

Artisan vs. DIY

In recent years, virtually anything and everything around your home could be a DIY project. 2017 is seeing a trend more toward artisan crafted or antique furniture and home accessories. People are returning to buying well-made furniture with an artisan touch and accessories such as hand-blown glass vases instead of DIY mason jar lighting. The use of antique furniture has become popular to create farmhouse styles that have been made famous by Chip and Joanna Gaines on their popular HGTV show, Fixer Upper.


Home décor in 2017 is about breathing new life into your home through the use of color, patterns, and even live plants. By finding a great piece of furniture in an antique store or one that has been refinished by a furniture artisan, you breathe new life into a piece that has withstood the test of time and is ready to shine again. These trends are a welcome breath of fresh air in an otherwise challenging time socially in our country and our world.
