We've recently given you our colour trend predictions for 2017. Now it's time to take a closer look at them individually, starting with one of our favourites - Hazelnut. Whilst pale woods and tan leathers surged in popularity last year, we see the rich walnuts, smoky oaks and chocolatey leathers making their way back into the headlines in 2017. Here's how to make the most of them in your home.
Dark on Dark
If you've got dark walls or floors, don't feel obliged to create a contrast by using lighter coloured furniture. An all dark colour palette when done correctly can have a very timeless and sophisticated appeal. Purple and softer hues of brown are two shades that really complement a hazelnut colour palette.
The Rustic Look
Embrace this year's trend for farmhouse-style living by furnishing your space with dark wooden furniture. Smoked oak, walnut and natural lacquer finishes all help emphasise the natural beauty of the wood, so they're perfect for achieving that cosy, rustic look in your home.
One of my favorite new things this week is having the chance to be home longer in the morning to see the sun flood into my home ☉ How blessed am I that I get to exercise, take my kids to school, have an hour lunch of me time and see this on my way out the door? So thankful and grateful for these small things that I've been missing for the past 5 years ❤ #wednesdaywooddecor #woodsandwhiteswednesday #myneutralnestwednesday #brightwhitewednesday #myjunkinfinds #whitecottagecountrybarn #whitewashwednesday #whitecottagecharm #chippylicious #thriftyfinds #wednesdaywritings #wednesdaywalldecor #mycountryhome #houseandhome #foundandforaged #bhgstylemaker #mybhg #bhgcelebrate #bhghome #weadorefarmhousedecor #mycountryliving
Mix and Match Woods
Using the same wooden finish on your dining table and chairs can be tempting, but don't be afraid to mix and match woods. Layering your space with different shades of hazelnut creates a really organic look, echoing the natural variety of trees in a forest.
I love to see a pairing of mid century designers' pieces I haven't seen before where it's a clear effortless, super stylish marriage ????Our Hans Wegner style Wishbone chairs are actually on sale and we can order the wood veneer Saarinen style dining table ? #styleenvy ?https://cadesign.ie/product/hans-wegner-style-wishbone-chair-walnut/ #cadesign #midcenturydesign #saarinentable #tuliptable #saarinen #wishbonechair #midcenturystyle #interiordesign #midcenturyfurniture
Take that organic look one step further by decorating your space with indoor plants. Indoor green living is set to be a huge trend this year and a hazelnut colour palette makes a great back drop for it. The contrast between dark browns and leafy greens will create a really calm and tranquillising ambiance in your home. It's the perfect design-recipe for relaxation!
It's one of those Saturdays when no one wants to leave the house.The kiddos are beautifully playing, I am lying on the couch sipping on my caramel latte and chatting with the hubs☕️but I have to return some Christmas gifts before I forget about it so I better get out the door soon! And I still need to take off the outdoor Christmas Decor but I just can get off the couch right now?♀️oh well! There's always tomorrow? How is your day going?? . #Interiordesign #currenthomeview #interior4all #homeyouhave #mydomaine #apartmenttherapy #housebeautiful #homewithrue #currentdesignsituation #abmathome #elledecor #mydecorvibe #bhgcelebrate #sodomino #currentdesignsituation #bhghome #myhome #interior #interiordesigner #eclecticdecor #housetohome #ambularinteriorsaintgotnothingonme #homedecor #houseplantub #mycovetedhome #EHDweekendmakeover #SMmakelifebeautiful #hgtv #bhghome #myoklstyle
Leather it up
Wood's not the only way to work the hazelnut colour palette! If you prefer a softer, warmer look than the rustic/farmhouse-style, incorporate brown into your interior through leather upholstery. From chocolate to cognac, brown shades in leather are a great way of brightening your space, despite using a seemingly dark colour scheme.
Hazelnut Home Accessories
A quick and easy way to inject a new colour into your home is through new home accessories. Linen, blankets, sofas and rugs are always a good way to add depth to your space but in this case they're a great way to experiment with hazelnut too. Try opting for beige tones on the softer end of the colour spectrum as they're easily adaptable and sit well with just about any colour scheme!
Sense of Scandinavia
The beauty of hazelnut lies in its versatility. Whilst it works well with blues and purples to create a luxurious dark interior, it sits equally well with white if minimalism's more your thing. Wood and white are two hallmark features of Scandinavian design, so a white room with hazelnut accents is a great way to combine two trends in one!
Wood used in an abundance creates a rustic, country look but if that's not your thing then try it in small doses. In this interior the distressed headboard and branch coat stand give the room a serene, woodland dynamic, without taking away from its overall modern and elegant appeal.

Pops of Colour
If dark colour palettes aren't really your thing, brighten up hazelnut with pops of colour. Dark brown sits surprisingly well with a number of bright shades. The interior below blends rich walnut wood with yellow and green furniture giving the space a vibrant, tropical feel.
Cabin living is one of the most rapidly spreading interior trends. After the turbulent year of 2016, rustic, cosy nooks in the home are offering a much-needed source of comfort and escapism. To create the look, use an abundance of wood and timber not just for the floors and furniture, but also for the walls and ceilings too! It may seem like a bold move now, but it'll be worth it when you have a haven like this one to come home to.
