It can be difficult to keep up-to-date with the ever-changing interior trends – but as we approach the half way mark in 2017, DM Designs, bespoke kitchen specialists in Glasgow, gives you all an update on the latest interior trends of the year, to help you get the most out of your design investment:

Summer fur
Fur isn’t just for the colder, winter months. It is here for 2017, and plans to stick around for the summer months. Whether it’s lamps, furniture or rugs, fur household items are here to stay. Instead of bringing out fur items as the winter months approach, add fur touches (in lighter tones) all year round for an instantly contemporary feel.

Relaxed and Boho
You don’t need to break the bank with this trend. Think about your accessories. Plants, woven baskets and printed fabrics help to achieve this look in a cost-effective way. With 2017 style, we get the chance to cast away formality with a more Bohemian, relaxed approach to décor.

Industrial is going nowhere
This trend has been a slow mover for the past few years, but 2017 has seen its big break – especially in the kitchen. You don’t have to go all-out for a nod towards this trend, as simply a table, chairs or a statement item in steel can achieve this look.

Luxury jewels
If you want to add a touch of luxury into your home, choose jewel colours for your accessories – namely berry colours, rich greens, turquoises and blues. They can be used as either accent colours or across whole walls.

The ‘in’ colour
Be bold this year and choose green, the new ‘in’ colour. And when we say bold, we mean the brighter the better. Green represents revitalization, as well as reflecting the current interest in bringing environmental sustainability into the home.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match
When accessorising you home, don’t be afraid to mix it up with your patterns and textures. Try something new and achieve a dynamic twist to your home. A variety of florals all working together can look great – as can different thicknesses of stripes. An array of textures is also going to come through. Mix fabrics, wallpaper and different surfaces to catch the eye.
