New Year, New Window Styles and Seattle Home Trends

January 11, 2017

This time of year is the perfect time to revamp your interior fashion and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. From painting your family room, to buying new window coverings or changing out furniture, we have the guide to what’s hot this year for interior fashion and window treatment trends in Seattle.

Dusky Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky tones are trending while clear, bright colors are on the wane. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are especially popular as are dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the spectrum are suggestive of nature from deep blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutral colors are still found in the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker beiges balancing out the other hues.

Painting most of your walls in a neutral color and then adding in pops of color with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings might be one of the simplest ways to revamp the color in your home. Then it’s simple to highlight the latest colors in your interior design now and change the little things out when color schemes switch after some time.

When assessing new window treatments, go with those in neutral tones like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will match any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed when you swap room colors down the line.

Natural Textures

Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers that are hot include weaved material in rugs or baskets, rustic wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures popping up in new places including on furniture, headboards, and art work. Think of how you can incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or making an interest piece from old wood.

Incorporating texture into your home through window treatments add another level of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built from historic, natural wood that was once part of doors or buildings. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an organic feel to your home. Other window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or natural woven shades.


Interior design motifs that incorporate mixed metals are showing up across Seattle. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially popular in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, homespun, and/or vintage pieces such as stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or pewter in your sinks or hardware for a more fashion-forward look.

Barn door shutters and sliding barn doors are a stunning way to bring in some metals and add an industrial or homespun style to your space. Barn doors are built of solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as rollers, sliding tracks, and pull handles made from steel.
