How To Decorate in 2017: Resolutions For The Year Ahead

3…2…1… Happy new year! As far as design resolutions for 2017 I bet you’re seeing all the usual suspects in our favorite magazines and on Instagram. The hot color for 2017. The next big trend for next year. The revolutionary new way we will arrange furniture that will leave 2016 in the dust.

 

As you know, I don’t exactly believe in trends. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t put my own stamp on this season with a list of design resolutions I make every year in the name of timeless style. Case in point: my Chicago kitchen, shot by Pieter Estersohn, from over ten years ago! Will you join me? I promise they doesn’t involve repainting your favorite room in the color du jour…

 

1. Try something new. It’s easy to get stuck in a routine, but what we don’t always remember is that switching things up can lead to a really beautiful tension. You can create that by combining periods, like buying a modern lamp to place on an old chest of drawers, or a contemporary photo to go over an antique sideboard. You don’t even need to buy, really: this is the perfect opportunity to take the things you love and move them around your home!
