New Year, New Window Styles and Salt Lake City Home Trends

Price Jarman

The start of the new year is a great time to revitalize your home design and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your living room, buying new window treatments or changing out accessories, we have tips on what’s fashionable this year for home fashion and window treatment trends in Salt Lake City.

Duskier Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier tones are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are seeing less use. Shades of gray, blue and green are extremely popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many colors on the palette are reminiscent of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker tans giving balance to other colors.

The simplest thing you can do to revamp the color in your home is to paint most of your walls a neutral color and add in flashes of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s easy to use the latest colors in your interior design now and swap the accessories out when color trends adapt down the road.

When considering new window treatments, go with those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you switch room colors in the future.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers trending up include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures popping up in new places like on furniture, headboards, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or making artwork from old wood.

Incorporating texture into your home through window treatments add another level of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built using old, knotted wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an organic feel to any home. Additional window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Accessories and furnishings that incorporate mixed metals are showing up across Salt Lake City. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or retro pieces such as bar stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or pewter in your sinks or hardware for a more fashion-forward look.
