Now that we’re on the last legs of 2017, it’s time to look back and see how the year has left its mark on the interior design genre. As you all know, interior design is an entity that is constantly changing. Each year sees the emergence of new trends, reemergence of old trends and the birth of some completely new trends along the way. Some of these become classic, and others become history.
Of course the context always matters as far as the reception of these trends is considered. As far as Singapore is concerned, the combination of the booming interior design industry combined with the need for individuality has welcomed many new trends this year. So today, we’ll be taking a look at the exclusive top 5 of 2017; what was, and will remain hot.
Bottle Green Colour Scheme
Bottle green colour scheme used to be at the top of their game back in the 90s, when they first emerged. But with the passage of time, and the advent of the modern contemporary style, they slowly became a remnant of the past. But 2017 has seen a resurgence in the bottle green colour scheme in modern interior designs. It has the added bonus of being retro and contemporary at the same time, and Singapore residents have never been more in love with it.
Gone are the days of generic furniture and boring construction. 2017 has seen a rising appreciation for qualitative, artistic furniture in interior design. From the re-appreciation of wishbone chairs, the tufty sofas and the beloved Eames Eiffel chairs, the use of creative and artsy furniture is at an all-time high, even at the end of 2017.
