Traditional Décor Trends which are Making a Comeback

Out with the old and in with the new. That’s how the saying goes. However, over previous years’ interior designers have been going mad for upcycled décor, unique vintage pieces and shabby chic interiors. So, maybe it should be, out with the new and in with the old?

If you want to add a spot of tradition to your home, then keep reading to discover which traditional décor trends are making a comeback in 2017!

Victorian Inspired Flooring

Flooring brand Amtico recently released Amtico Décor, which is inspired by the sophisticated Victorian era, bringing traditional beauty into the home.

If you’re looking for a flooring choice which creates a sophisticated and classy look then this is the perfect choice!

We think this type of flooring would look particularly outstanding in a hallway – what more of a lavish greeting could you give guests?

If you’re interested in this flooring, but not sure on the design or colour, then head over to the BestatFlooring Amtico Décor page, to see their full range of beautiful and elegant designs in this range.

1970’s Metal Table Leg Design

Surprisingly, something as simple as choosing a metal table leg over a wooden table leg can bring a touch of tradition to any home.

Pam Hopgood from Perfect Match Homes, shares her insight on which interiors are making a comeback with her input on metal table legs…

‘‘We have seen the emerging trend for metal table legs, in square or rectangle shapes rather than the circular trend of recent days. Very 1970s.’’

Wallpaper is back

Believe it or not, we’ve also seen wallpaper making a huge comeback over recent years. Especially patterned wallpaper which is often used as an accent wall to give a neutral room a pop of colour.

Christine Villanueva, from Luxe Décor, says,

’One traditional element worth noting that’s making a big comeback in 2017 is wallpaper. Today, it’s updated in fresh colours and prints that will make a stunning statement in any home. Use it as an accent on a single wall to keep interiors from feeling outdated.’’

If you’re looking for a trendy and yet quirky way to add some colour to a space, consider using wallpaper on just one wall. The louder the pattern the better if you’re wanting to give an interior a fresh lease of life.

Gold finishes and light tones

Oz Drewniak from CVL Group has seen gold finishes and light tones have made a comeback, but with a modern spin!

‘‘Many 90s trends are returning in home design, but in a modern way. We are seeing a revival of pastel colours, gold finishes, light wood floor varieties, wallpaper, and more.

These trends are not an exact repeat of the past, but being introduced in a new way.

For example, gold-finished fixtures, but in a modern knob, handle, or faucet design.’’

As light wood is making a comeback, we have a range of Solid Wood Flooring and Laminate Flooring in ranges of colours and finishes, so you will definitely find something to suit this latest trend.

Bold, jewel toned colours and overstated faux patterns, which once fell out of fashion when neutral tones and minimalism became all the rage, are also making a huge comeback with designers this year and something which we expect to see a lot more of in 2017.
