New Year, New Window Styles and Atlanta Home Trends

Dan Taylor

This time of year is a great time to shake up your home design and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your family room, buying new window treatments or changing out furnishings, we have tips on what’s in vogue this year for interior fashion and window treatment trends in Atlanta.

Dusky Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are growing in popularity while clear, bright colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the spectrum are suggestive of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral colors are still found in the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans giving balance to other shades.

The simplest method to revamp the color in your home might be to paint most of your walls a neutral tone and add in flashes of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s easy to highlight the latest colors in your home today and swap the accessories out when color schemes switch down the road.

When thinking about new window treatments, pick ones in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed when you swap room colors down the line.


Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers trending up include weaved material in rugs or baskets, knotted wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures popping up in new places including on furniture, headboards, and art work. Add new life into an old belonging with a small project such as wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork from old wood.

Incorporating texture into your design through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made from old, knotted wood that was once part of doors or buildings. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an intrinsic quality to your home. Additional window coverings that add texture are Ovation® wood shutters or natural woven shades.


Interior design motifs that incorporate different metals are popping up across Atlanta. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish in 2017. 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 be afraid to use nickel or pewter in your sinks or hardware for a more fashion-forward aesthetic.
