It’s hard to believe 2017 is nearly over. While there were some amazing innovations, artistry, and movements in the home space this year, clearly a few trends that came out on top. To give us a more accurate depiction of 2017’s hottest styles, the online interior design and decorating service Havenly created a list based on data from more than 25,000 surveys to figure out the most popular aesthetic of the year. Take one look at Pinterest, and you’ll have no surprise that farmhouse style came out on top.
“Farmhouse is a complete blend of style and comfort. It’s an approachable and attainable aesthetic,” shared Shelby Girard, Havenly’s head of design. “Our customers want their home to feel cozy and lived-in while still being well-designed.” Following farmhouse is preppy contemporary, a more refined take on the classic style.
Coming in third and fourth place is a bohemian glam and bohemian contemporary aesthetic. Havenly predicts these styles might rise to the top in the next year thanks to lots of searches for wall tapestries and earthy tones on their site. “Marigold, olive green and rusty oranges seem to be catching eyes more and more,” says Girard. “Pairing those colors with modern decor make the design more approachable, or, when seeking the ultimate boho vibe, this palette adds more color than you’d think.” With traditional style in fifth place, we have a feeling that more modern looks will be the way to go in 2018.
