Watch out for these top 5 trends that are here to stay and make an impack on the hospitality design world. I quite frankly couldnt be more excited because I love all of these trends and I hope other designers do too.
It is about time local art makes it way into hospitality and Kalisher is a big reason it is taking off. I have written about Kalisher before and they are just making it easier for hospitality designers to have access to beautiful original local art.
I cannot tell you how annoyed I am every time someone asks for a Wilsonart finish. Why can’t the wood and product we use be beautiful on it's own without some awful red painted on top of it? Restoration hardware does an awesome job of keeping the furniture’s culture and originality.
I don't know about you but I am sick of burgundy. Every hotel I look at online is outdated and it looks like the burgundy fairy threw up on it. Now rooms are going to be more soft and subtle. (Might even see some Serenity & Rose Quarts staying around for another year)
Yes I said plants. Sustainability is still a huge buzzword in the hospitality industry and I am glad. More and more properties are becoming LEED certified every day in attempt to protect our plant. Not to mention Pantone's color of the year for 2017 Greenery.
VINTAGE LOOKS MADE MODERN
This is probably my most favorite trend because I love combining old and new looks to create a completely unique space. Each space in a hotel should leave an impression that the guests can take home with them. This trend makes it easier to segway a hotel from ultra-traditional (those hotels that look like your grandmothers living room.. you know what I mean), to more of a modern look that is still timeless.
I don't know about you but I predict some big things happening with the hospitality design world in 2017. I feel like we are going to be able to have more fun, take more risks, and maybe even create some of our own trends.
