First of all, how do we know all this? We are not clairvoyant, nor is any other journalist or market analyst. It may seem like the trend forecast is some kind of a scam, however the case is utterly different. In the age of the Internet, information travels at the speed of light and we can gather up data from all over the world within seconds.

1.Terracotta lands the floor

It allows us to see what’s going on in the minds of the greatest designers, fashion dictators and (extra)ordinary people. By looking at their work we can precisely estimate what will be the big deal of the coming year. Actually, it is a bit like magic, don’t you think?

‘Terra-cotta’ in Italian or ‘terra cocta’ in Latin means “baked earth”. No wonder in 2017 this earthenware is definitely taking hold of our interiors, while all artificial tiles are retiring. Terracotta has a huge potential to bring some warmth into your home and it fits perfectly with other natural materials.

You can match it with wood, stone or simply go with terracotta all the way. If you’re more into urban décor, avoid the tiles which are too rustic and keep them in a matte finish. Long ago, the Chinese emperor Qin Shi Huang recognized the advantages of terracotta and built his famous army of it. Let us follow his wisdom!

2. Emerald is on the radar

Pantone, the worldwide authority on the matter of colors, has proclaimed greenery as the hue of the year 2017. Such a prominent source should not be ignored. Greenery represents all the freshness, naturalness and peace of mind that seems to have been lost in the technology-obsessed civilization of today.

We should welcome it back in our lives with open arms. If this vibrant yellow-green appears too flashy for you, emerald is the answer. This royal shade is more toned and will match a wide variety of interiors, from traditional to modern. One way or another, green is entering our homes which brings us to…

3. Home garden is a thing

Actually, home garden is THE thing. Why settle for less when you can have more? Greenery and emerald tints are going to prevail in our furniture, wall-paints and accessories but it is Nature that can give us the real deal. Open up to the world! Make sure your windows are large and spacious so that they can invite the garden into the room.

Take a step further and invest in some plants indoors. A tree in a pot? We don’t see why not! Olive trees are getting ready for the great entrance in 2017. If you do not have the proverbial “green thumb”, a fern or a cactus will come to rescue 😉 Supposedly, fiddle leaf figs are on their way out but we wouldn’t worry about that too much. In our understanding – the greener, the better.

The world yearns for relief from artificiality. In 2017 we are obliged to turn towards the non-disposable goods which comprise of natural materials, masterful execution and timeless appeal; to pick utilitarian objects that have a chance to last for generations and never go out of fashion. Such indeed are antique rugs.

Just as they served our ancestors, they are ready to serve us in our modern homes. The purchase of an original Persian Kerman, a Turkish Sivas or an Indian Agra rug is an investment, as its value will increase over time. You may also settle for some vintage Moroccan or Scandinavian pieces. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed. When it comes to decorating, nothing compares to the glory of carpets.

Who has never dreamed of a little house in a bucolic, faraway village? Even if you’re a declared urbanite, you must admit there is something irresistibly romantic about this idea. The good news is you don’t have to move anywhere to feel the countryside vibe. In 2017 this idyll is going to knock at your door and all you have to do is to let it enter.

How to see it coming? Well, obviously it will be all natural, dressed in timber, flowers, sunlight and handicraft. And less poetically, re-use and re-cycle.

Take what’s best from the old furniture and give them a new life by remaking them to your liking. Aged wood is going to be a great hit next year, the same applies to patchworks, wicker baskets and all accessories made by hand.
