New Year, New Window Styles and Cleveland Home Trends

Nate Gromen

This time of year is the perfect time to update your home design and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. From painting your family room, to buying new window treatments or swapping out accessories, we have the guide to what’s in vogue in 2017 for interior fashion and window treatment trends in Cleveland.

Dusky Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky colors are growing in popularity while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of gray, blue and green are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the spectrum are reminiscent of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutrals are still found in the color palette with whites, grays and darker beiges giving balance to other tones.

Painting some of your walls in a neutral tone and then adding in pops of color with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings might be one of the simplest ways to update the color in your home. Then it’s simple to have the latest colors in your interior design today and swap the accessories out when color schemes adapt after some time.

When thinking about new window coverings, choose those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you swap room colors in the future.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers in vogue include woven rugs and baskets, knotted wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures popping up in new places including on furniture, headboards, and art work. Breathe new life into an old belonging with a small touch such as wrapping a frame in twine or making artwork out of old wood.

Adding textures to your house through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed using aged, knotted wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an all-natural feel to your home. Other window treatments that bring texture into your home include Ovation® wood shutters or natural woven shades.


Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate multiple metals are becoming popular across Cleveland. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially stylish in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, homespun, and/or retro pieces such as bar stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t be afraid to use nickel or brass in your faucets or cabinetry for a more modern aesthetic.
