Bring in Metallics
Believe it or not, metallics can act as neutrals to balance out the look in your room. Just a touch of glimmering metal can add a distinctive charm to your space instantly.When incorporating a lot of metallic pieces keep the colour scheme fairly subdued. The metallic piece in the room should be enough to act the right amount of oomph and do the trick.
Shape up with geometric décor
We bet you'll be falling in love with triangles, hexagons and squares in 2017 when you see them as patterns for pillows, blankets and as form shapes in home decor. This decor fits for people who prefer mid-century, modern or quirky designs. It adds texture and visual interest to your design. Great option to go for the people who mix it up and add a bit of fun to their homes.
Decorate with bold colours

Home is where the heart is and it's where you show off your unique style and individuality. Don't settle for ordinary; include crazy prints as it is the style statement for 2017. Quirk up your home as the smallest details can make a lot of difference.
Functional over decorative

But we suggest you to choose functional products for the next year. The main idea behind putting functionality above all is placing the product quality firmly.
