Follow along with Homepolish designer Jennifer Wallenstein as she talks about how to achieve the dark, tall, and handsome version of interiors: the moody space.

When the holidays roll around, the design world seems to be of two minds: holiday décor and what’s to come in the new year. Trend forecasting is serious business and color predictions are an exciting part of that. Just a few days ago, Pantone released their color of 2017, Greenery. Greenery is bright, cheerful, and spring-like, a real counter-punch to the ethereal qualities of the 2016 colors (Serenity and Rose Quartz). But maybe you’re like me and have noticed another trend emerging for the coming year: moody, saturated, and raw colors. Think dark grays, slate blues, earthy tans or browns, and blackened metals.

One of the great things about this palette is that a lot of these colors are neutrals. They’ll stand the test of time and transition easily when 2018’s colors start to make themselves known. From rugs and large-scale pieces of furniture to small accessories, you can easily incorporate the trend throughout your home.
