Whether it’s painting your living room, buying new window treatments or swapping out furnishings, we have the guide to what’s in vogue this year for home design and window treatment trends in Nashville. Dusky Hues & Pastels Both pastels and dusky colors are growing in popularity while clear, bright colors are on the wane. Shades of gray, blue and green are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are reminiscent of nature from sky blue to “Greenery”, Pantone’s color of the year. Neutral colors are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans giving balance to 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 might be one of the easiest methods to update the color in your home. Then it’s simple to have the latest colors in your home today and change the accessories out when color trends adapt down the road.

Fibers trending up include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures popping up in new places like on furniture, headboards, and art work. Add new life into an old belonging with a small touch such as wrapping a frame in twine or creating an interest piece out of old wood. Incorporating texture into your home through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from old, weathered wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an all-natural quality to your house. Other window coverings that bring texture into your home are Ovation® wood shutters or natural woven shades. Metals Furniture, hardware, and accessories that incorporate varying metals are showing up across Nashville. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish this year. You can incorporate metals in your décor by finding industrial, homespun, and older pieces such as bar stools, chairs, 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 contemporary look. Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a great way to get the visual benefit of metals and add a streamlined or rustic look to your room. Barn doors are constructed from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as rollers, tracks, and door handles that are made of steel.
