New Window Styles and Design Trends for 2017 in Detroit

Steve Hill

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 living room, buying new window coverings or changing out accessories, we have the guide to what’s fashionable in 2017 for interior fashion and window treatment trends in Detroit.

Dusky Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky hues are seeing more use while clear, vibrant colors are on the wane. 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 evocative of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found in the color palette with whites, grays and darker browns balancing out the other shades.

Painting some of your walls in a neutral tone and then adding in pops of color through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings might be one of the easiest ways to update the color in your home. Then it’s a breeze to use the latest colors in your interior design today and change the accessories out when color trends adapt in the future.

When considering new window treatments, choose those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will easily complement any style or color palette and can stay in place when you switch room colors down the line.


Natural textures will remain popular this year. Fibers trending up include weaved material in rugs or baskets, rustic wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures showing up in new places including on furniture, headboards, and art work. 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.

Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are made from aged, natural wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an all-natural quality to your home. Other window treatments that add texture are Ovation® wood shutters or shades made of natural woven material.


Interior design motifs that incorporate a variety of metals are popping up across Detroit. Wrought iron, brass, and nickel are especially popular in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or vintage pieces such as bar stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary look.
