New Year, New Window Styles and Boise Home Trends

January 11, 2017

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

Duskier Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are growing in popularity 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 tones are still found in the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker tans balancing out the other tones.

The easiest thing you can do to add a spark to the color in your home might be to paint most of your walls a neutral shade and add in flashes of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s simple to use the latest colors in your interior design today and change the accessories out when color schemes adapt in the future.

When assessing 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 aren’t going anywhere this year. Fibers in vogue include weaved material in rugs or baskets, rustic wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures popping up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. Breathe new life into an old belonging with a small project 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, knotted wood that was once part of doors or buildings. 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 natural woven shades.


Accessories and furnishings that incorporate varying metals are showing up across Boise. Wrought iron, brass, and nickel 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.
