5 INTERIOR DECORATING TIPS FOR 2017
1 . PANTONE IT UP
Each year, there is one color named “Pantone Color of the Year.” If you want to be hip with the crowd, try out decorating your home with wall paint and decor in this year’s color of the year: “Greenery.” That is a tone of green -- you guessed it! Or you just saw the photo below with the color swatch because you are cool like that. Whatever the case, this color is bright, refreshing, and rejuvenating. And we like it. Wait, so what is the interior decorating tip here? Incorporate Greenery into your home by putting up a fresh coat of paint, adding some Greenery colored decorations, and even adding real greenery (also known as plants) into your home.

2 . GO MARBLES
Take a look around, and you will see marble phone cases galore, marble backgrounds in modern designed digital spaces, and on the pages of oh so many successful Instagrammers. Marble is a fluke of nature that is intricate, beautiful, and clean looking. So the second spot on our list of interior decorating tips goes to the advice to top off your counters with some gorgeous marble. Whether the marble countertops are real or fake, we are certain it will look amazing.

3 . SUMMER SNOW
Ok, not really. We are not saying for you to add snow to your interior decorating plans. That would get super messy and super slippery real quick. Think instead about decorating with lots of white embellishments this year. It may be summer now, but be sure to incorporate things into your home that are white as snow, even white as chalk or white as bone -- whatever you choose. The point is that white decor is totally in for this year. It looks clean, fresh, pure, and modern. And it would go so well with any other color, especially that one green color we mentioned earlier…

5 . BE SHADY
Do not be blind to the importance of blinds when it comes to interior decorating tips. People sometimes forget that old blinds, low quality blinds, and boring blinds can drag the look of a home down. Instead of being one of those people, take it from the pros who are aware of the 2017 interior decorating tips. One tip is to be sure to check out the situation on your windows and make the necessary interior design changes! If you have tropical themes in your house, try some dark wood shutters. If your home is ultra modern with lots of black and white, try single cell filtering shades. However your home is designed, make sure you have consistency on your walls by making those window sections of each room match your style and accent your pre existing interior decorations and the scenery outside the windows. For example, take a peek at the photo below to see how much of an impact the shades have on the overall feel of the whole room.
