What Color Trends are 'Hot' for 2017? It might surprise you!



Predicting what the next design & colour trends are going to be, is quite scientific. In fact, it takes a huge amount of data to predict what’s coming. And that’s on a global level.

These clever scientific people that are gathering this information, are then able to work out what’s going to be trend for the following year. To add to that, they keep a close eye on new designer works and artists that are creating a storm.

So now you understand the ‘how’ let’s get into the exciting part… and I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but for anyone that was around in the 70’s and loved terracotta - it’s baaaack!!

Now before you get excited thinking your original terracotta tiles are back, I’m going to burst your bubble a little.

The ‘new look’ terracotta tile is a more ‘matte’ finish and reminds me of a Mediterranean or Spanish look that belongs in a fabulous little home or villa in another country.

The terracotta tile will not be for everyone and the trick with be to make sure you aren’t creating too much of a rustic look - that could flop very quickly!!

The warmth of autumn colors and dark greens are another surprise that’s making a comeback. We’ve already started to see the greens in shows like The Block. Be inspired with the luxury of dark green velvet and plants that are luscious.

And paint colors have really been shaken up! With the introduction of warm oranges and dark greens, our 2017 walls are going to be colorful for sure.

With all of this warmth, it brings me to a trend that I’ve been loving for years - gold, rose gold and beautiful coppers.

And, they are here to stay!! The experts all agree, that the beautiful warm metal colours are still going to be a hot trend in 2017.

Luckily, that touch of luxury is here to stay.

Well, if you thought terracotta tiles were never going to re-surface, this one is going to knock you over - dark timber has made a comeback.

The blonde timbers we’ve become accustomed to over the past few years are leaving the building and the rich dark walnut shades are back.

Whether it’s in the bathroom or anywhere in our homes, the beautiful richness of the walnut colour enhances the dark greens and autumn tones. Finis these luxurious tones with metal accents and your home will become a 2017 designer masterpiece.

Here's some Fun Facts that you might not know about me:

I've always had a strong penchant for turning something old into something new. I love creating, researching and coming up with ways to renovate homes and businesses. 

Mix psychology, targeting, marketing to the property market, this changed my view on renovating and business. (makes me sound boring!)

I've worked on dozens of houses, read hundreds of books, studied the market, (then promptly forgot that!) and found out some cats like going to the beach!

(who knew?)

I'm an Aquarian, which I may, (or may not) seem at times to you to be a bit wacky but if you can get past my unconventional approach to renovating houses and businesses, you'll see why its the 'unconventional' approach, that create amazing profits.

I teach you how to get into the head of your buyer/client, how to know them better than they know themselves, what they like, what they can afford and best of all why they will pay you more money than you ever imagined.

My approach is 'disruptive' (think Steve Jobs, Oprah, Richard Branson) unconventional and I teach online. So if its a regular 2 hour property seminar your after... (I'm probably not your girl)

I started The Renovation College to begin a new era (and make money online)


To create entrepreneurs that make money and take them away from the 9-5. 

I now teach women and men how to create renovation businesses that make big bucks and, if bringing your knowledge online by creating a profitable course that you can launch over and over again is your thing, let me know.
