New Window Styles and Home Trends for 2017 in New York City

Darren Zuckerman

The start of the new year is an ideal time to revamp your interior fashion and window treatments with the hottest styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your family room, buying new window coverings or changing out furnishings, we have tips on what’s in vogue in 2017 for home fashion and window treatment trends in New York City.

Dusky Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky tones are trending while clear, vibrant colors are seeing less use. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are especially popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the palette are suggestive of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker beiges giving balance to other shades.

The easiest thing you can do to add a spark to the color in your home might be to paint most of your walls a neutral shade 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 swap the little things out when color schemes vary in the future.

When thinking about new window treatments, pick ones in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will go beautifully with any style or color palette and can stay in place when you switch room colors in the future.


Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers that are popular include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures showing up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and pieces of art. 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.

Adding textures to your house through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built from old, natural wood that was once part of doors or buildings. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an intrinsic feel to any home. Other window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or natural woven shades.


Interior design motifs that incorporate varying metals are becoming popular across New York City. Wrought iron, brass, and nickel are especially stylish in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, and vintage pieces such as stools, chairs, or lamps that are built from metals. Also, don’t shy away from using nickel or brass in your sinks or hardware for a more fashion-forward aesthetic.
