As we delve further into the year, we start to say goodbye to the past. This means we can finally say goodbye to those interior trends that we secretly dislike. Here are some interior design trends that we can’t wait to see the back of.
All White Kitchens
White is a beautiful shade, just not all over the place. This trend can look beautiful online, but most of the time it’s hard to keep your kitchen looking as beautiful as it does on Pinterest. This stark white ensemble also only looks nice for a few hours, before it gets completely covered in food, dust and anything else that kitchens can conjure up. This trend should be quickly placed with the ‘90s trend of all wooden kitchens; far away. The same goes with bathrooms. All white bathrooms may look lovely, but overall, they’re impractical. The scum and grime that builds up in a bathroom is apparent enough, imagine the mess that gets seen in an all white bathroom. For an alternative to the stark white scene, why not introduce a unique shower head into the mix, giving your all white bathroom a fresh and exciting twist.
Too Much Green
Greenery may be the colour of the year, but sometimes there can be too much of a good thing.Greenery is a great feature colour to inject into your home, whether it be with a lone chair, a feature rug or a piece of art. However, if you start stacking green upon green, it can look a bit like a ‘60s nightmare. Tania Bell from Green Room Interiors explains offers her advice for the trend she wants to see go. “Fiddle Leaf fig plants. I love a good indoor plant, it breaks up the architecture and purifies the air, but they are in every magazine, online and the market is saturated with this plant. Bring on variety I say.” Follow Green Room Interiors on Facebook and Instagram.
If you're still loving the green trend, Emily Ayers from Service.com.au has the perfect way to introduce it into your home with over-doing it. "Green can be incorporated into your space as an accent colour with cushions and throws or as a feature with a statement armchair or feature wall. Jewels, metallics and gemstones are becoming more and more popular as a decor accessory. Interiors that exude luxury and glamour are a must have on Service.com.au this year."

Off The Wall
Over the past few months, it seems that the latest trend is putting things up on walls that don’t usually belong there. Richard Woods from Evergreen Walls offers his advice for the trend he’d like to stay out of style. “I can't wait to see the back of 'fabric wall art'. Leave the tapestry to the churches and the DIY weaves to the baby showers. If your wall looks scruffy, consider a paint job or adding a bit of greenery.” Find out more about Evergreen Walls by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
Can’t Cop The Copper
Are we sick of copper and brass yet? This trend has definitely run its race, and we honestly can’t wait to see the back of it. Copper has been the staple to every interior decor known to man these past few months, and it’s time for the trend to be stopped. It may look pretty, but the overuse of the metal has made it look cheap and shabby.
At the end of the day, these trends are a bit of fun, and you can use them however you like. The next season, though, it would be nice to see some new and exciting trends coming our way! Check out our interior design prediction for winter 2017 here.
