1. Terracotta Tiles

This coming 2017, Terracotta trend is making a huge comeback in the home decor world which is why you should ditch the idea of getting bright white walls or wood flooring. Try to infuse a dash of rustic aesthetic and classic elegance with terracotta tiles into your bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom or courtyard for a warm, cozy and unique appeal. While many of us think that terracotta tiles are normally for traditional home settings, be surprised that terracotta tile actually works perfectly well in contemporary interiors too! Think matte finishes and black & white furniture which help neutral out the complexity and level up the texture game. Not sure how to incorporate the terracotta trend into your home interior? You can start small from simple terracotta-potted mini plants to bigger projects like terracotta walls and terracotta flooring. Take a glimpse of these gorgeous terracotta home interiors for more inspiration!

2. Mixed Metals

Mixed metals used to be a big taboo in the home interior world once upon a time. However, we’re seeing more and more approved ways of mixing metals in the recent Home decor trend for 2017 which is a good news for people who love everything metallic!

Without a doubt, adding a touch of metallics into your home can liven up your home space with sparkles and shine, hence, why not incorporate some metallic elements to give your home a brand new touch? Instead of just adding one metal element into your room space, elevate your home decor game by mixing 2 to 3 metals in one room. Whether you want to mixed metals in your living room, bedroom, bathroom or dining room, the possibilities are endless. But, make sure you do not overdo it or else it would be horrifying to eyes.

While there are so many types of metal with different color, texture and pattern and size, it can be really difficult to make choices. Don’t worry as we’ve got you sorted.

Here are a few mixed metal tips to help you get started!

  • Always pick a primary metal when you’re mixing two or more metals. Let the primary metal dominate the others so that it won’t be “too much”.
  • Don’t go too crazy with metallics, keep it simple and sweet by mixing 2 or 3 metals and that’s it!
  • Instead of mixing gold and silver, try playing around with different textures such as hammered, oil-brushed, mercury glass or antique-patterned metals.
  • Don’t cluster mixed metals together in one specific area! Interspersed them across a large room for a better aesthetic appeal.
  • Not ready to invest on big items that would cost a hole in your wallet? Try smaller items like gold soap dish, gilded mirror and mercury silver candlesticks.
