Believe it or not, fall is just around the corner, and we're already setting our sights on what home design and hues will be huge. So, we scoured stores and Pinterest and asked industry experts which trends they're loving for next season—and which ones they wish would go away. Of course, remember to choose what you love, regardless of what might be in style. But as the weather shifts from summer to fall, it can be fun (and not to mention easy and cheap) to make a few changes to your house as well. Here's what we predict will be "in" and "out" for fall and winter 2017.
OUT: All-White Interiors
Craving more color? You're in luck! Interiors are (finally) moving away from all white and gray. Instead, people are embracing warm, rich shades of brown, black, green, and blush.
Of course, we're not suggesting you rip out your marble countertops. Those are timeless. And a few marble touches here and there, like this West Elm lamp, can be perfectly lovely. But the recent trend of all marble everywhere is a bit tired. Instead, opt for earthier materials, like wood, clay, and metal with worn finishes.
OUT: Copper Home Accessories
Like marble, rose gold and copper seem to have run their course. Don't panic: Your real copper fixtures and copper farmhouse sink will always be in style. It's the overly shiny, obviously fake home accents that have flooded the market in recent years that are beginning to look dated. Instead, the trend is now moving toward classic aged brass.
OUT: Generic Furniture
The number one trend designer Annie Selke is sick of? Bland furniture sets. Instead of buying the whole set, people are now mixing and matching for a one-of-a-kind look.
And they're moving away from modern, too. "While I like modern pieces, I'm just about over the mid-century modern theme," says Home Depot's Director of Trend and Design Sarah Fishburne. "It's been all over the place for a while now."
