Antonio Meza

This time of year is an ideal time to revamp your interior fashion and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window coverings or changing out accessories, we have tips on what’s fashionable this year for interior design and window treatment trends in San Antonio.

Duskier Tones & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier hues are growing in popularity while clear, vibrant colors are trending downward. Shades of gray, blue and green are very popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many shades on the spectrum are evocative of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutrals are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker browns balancing out the other colors.

The simplest thing you can do to add a spark to the color in your house might be to paint some of your walls a neutral tone and add in flashes of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s a cinch to use the latest colors in your interior design today and change the accessories out when color trends adapt after some time.

When considering new window treatments, go with those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will easily complement any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you swap room colors in the future.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers that are popular include woven rugs and baskets, knotted wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures showing up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. Think of how you can incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating an interest piece out of old wood.

Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed from historic, weathered wood that was once part of fences or homes. The wood has unique twists and knots that bring an all-natural quality to any home. Additional window treatments that bring texture into your home are Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Accessories and hardware that incorporate varying metals are popping up across San Antonio. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially popular currently. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or older pieces such as stools, chairs, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or brass in your sinks or hardware for a more contemporary look.
