Burlap, rustic flooring, and chevron designs have been mainstream for a few years now, but have you heard of the up-and-coming trends for 2017?! Modern and sleek have met with homemade charm, and CENTURY 21 Sweyer & Associates believes it will be a beautiful friendship.
First on the list is upholstered headboards, which can provide comfort and an extra pop of color to the guest bedroom.
While chevron is highly popular, if you love the concept but not the pattern, try its cousin: Modern Geometric. Their patterns are typically more complicated and dual colored. Try them on accent walls, sofa pillows and throw blankets to be more subtle, but still on trend.
Refurbished furniture, otherwise known as “Shabby Chic,” can be extravagantly priced in some department stores, when all you need is a sharp eye for a good deal! Flea markets, yard sales, and thrift shops often have a plethora of options. A solid piece with a fresh coat of white paint and some distressing will serve your family well for decades.
Brass, which is a warm metal, is a mixture of copper and zinc with an interesting perk. It holds up well to dents and doesn’t tarnish quickly, unlike soft metals like solid copper. It’s also half the weight of gold, so you can have the look without the heft.
