Interior Inspiration

We take you through some of 2017’s hottest trends that can help boost your home’s appeal and showcase some of our finest properties that have successfully implemented these trends.

As we’ve mentioned previously, sprucing up your home can make a big difference when it comes to selling. It doesn’t all have to be for the benefit of the new owner though. If you invest in some current interior trends, not only will your house look better on the market; you’ll be able to bring some of your purchases to your new home.

Print is back in a big way, and can be seen throughout homes in wallpaper designs, curtains and other fabrics. Bold colours with pinks, greens and blacks are being seen in tropical prints and geometric patterns, adding a young, fun vibe to homes.

One great example of these patterns can be seen in this house in Putney, which has a tropical, trendy feel in the dining area.

Secondly, statement lighting is making a comeback, with chandeliers, vintage style light bulbs and quirky stands all providing focal points that instantly lift a room.

The chandeliers in the living and dining rooms of this five bedroom family home in Wimbledon create a sense of grandeur.

Textured fabric is also proving popular this year, and has been seen in soft furnishings, fireplaces and lighting, all of which provide an edge to living areas. An easy way to incorporate this trend into your home is by mixing fabrics together i.e. throwing scatter cushions over a velvet sofa or draping wool throws over leather sofas.

The different fabrics used in the bedroom of this stunning apartment in Marylebone seamlessly blend modern décor with traditional surroundings.

Contact Winkworth West End on 020 7240 3322 for more information.

Lastly, this season we’ve seen a shift from the white, bright interiors that have been en vogue during the past few years to deeper colours. Popular shades include dark slate, plum and dusky blues and Greenery, the Pantone colour of 2017. Not only can these colours be used to spectacular effect on a feature wall, splashes of these deep shades on cushions, throws and ceramics will add a chic touch to any room.

The use of slate grey in this mid-terrace Victorian living room in West Kensington, coupled with the dark grey sofa and a mix of throw draping the sofa and chair, creates a sophisticated, impactful room.
