London-based designer Maurizio Pellizzoni reveals design trends for 2017, from colours and patterns to materials and styles

Maurizio Pellizzoni is an internationally renowned interior designer, specialising in creating cosy family homes and contemporary city lofts. Here, he reveals what he believes the industry will see more of in 2017.

“In 2017 we will see a more sophisticated and elegant style brought into our interior schemes, whilst simultaneously injecting something more personal into the space. The shift towards luxury will move from what has been a generic use of high-end pieces to spaces that have a unique touch as a result of personalising them,” says Pellizzoni. “'Escapism will be a popular theme as a remedy to our technologically domineering and digital lifestyles. Technology will develop into a calmer sense of living so that we don't feel constantly connected to the digital sphere.”

He also talks about colour. “As we can see some of the fashion trends for spring and summer in 2017 and with greenery as Pantone's colour of the year for 2017, this new colour trend will translate into our interiors.”

Natural patterns will dominate from earthy foliage, gentle contours in natural materials such as stone, to animal prints, as these patterns and textures descend from the catwalk into our homes.

'The use of warm materials such as terracotta and burnished metals will become more prevalent. Metal finishing will be used in finer detail to create uniquely crafted pieces, particularly from artisans and new designers,” he concludes.
