Collins Jones

This time of year is the perfect time to update your home design and window treatments with the new styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your family room, buying new window treatments or changing out accessories, we have tips on what’s in vogue in 2017 for interior design and window treatment trends in Dallas.

Duskier Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier hues are trending while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of gray, blue and green are extremely popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the palette are suggestive of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker beiges balancing out the other shades.

Painting most of your walls in a neutral color and then adding in pops of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings is one of the simplest things you can do to update the color in your home. Then it’s simple to use the latest colors in your interior design today and swap the little things out when color schemes switch down the road.

When thinking about new window coverings, choose ones in neutral tones like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will easily complement any style or color palette and can stay in place when you swap room colors down the line.


Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers trending up include weaved material in rugs or baskets, natural or reclaimed wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures popping up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and pieces of art. 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.

Adding textures to your design through window treatments add another level of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made using aged, knotted wood that was once part of doors or structures. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an organic quality to any home. Other window treatments that bring texture into your home are Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate multiple metals are popping up across Dallas. Gold, nickel, and brass are especially popular now. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, homespun, and/or vintage pieces such as bar stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your faucets or hardware for a more fashion-forward aesthetic.
