New Window Styles and Design Trends for 2017 in Boise

Spencer Madsen

The beginning of the new year is an ideal time to update your home design and window treatments with the new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window coverings or swapping out furnishings, we have the scoop on what’s in vogue in 2017 for interior design and window treatment trends in Boise.

Duskier Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are seeing less use. Shades of gray, blue and green are extremely popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many colors on the spectrum are reminiscent 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 tans balancing out the other tones.

Painting some of your walls in a neutral shade and then adding in flashes of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings is one of the easiest ways to update the color in your home. Then it’s simple to have the latest colors in your interior design today and change the accessories out when color schemes vary down the road.

When thinking about new window coverings, choose ones in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will easily complement any style or color palette and can stay in place when you switch room colors down the line.

Natural Textures

Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers that are hot include weaved material in rugs or baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures popping up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. Think of how you can incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating an interest piece out of old wood.

Adding textures to your home through window treatments add another level of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from historic, natural wood that was once part of doors or homes. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an intrinsic feel to your house. Additional window coverings that bring texture into your home are Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material.


Accessories and furnishings that incorporate varying metals are popping up across Boise. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially stylish in 2017. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, rustic, and/or vintage pieces such as stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your sinks or hardware for a more contemporary look.
