Etsy Canada: Setting Summer Trends

Etsy Canada brought their annual Summer Trends Presentation to Vancouver, to give tastemakers and influencers a sneak peek into what to expect for the coming season, in home décor and fashion. Guests mingled with local Etsy sellers and Etsy’s trend expert, Dayna Isom who was on hand to guide everyone through this season’s trend forecast. She highlighted some of the many local artisans and their beautiful wares that are available on the multinational e-commerce website.

So, what are the key trends and items to look out for in summer 2017?

Go Global
We all daydream about getting away from it all to the perfect destination, but how about bringing a little bit of travel into your bedroom. This season sees global influences in textiles and homewares, so it’s the perfect excuse to bring back a little something from your travels. If you can’t get away here are a few local brands that can make the globe come to you.

Matte Black
Black is always on trend and so what makes this season special? Well, this season sees a lot of matte blacks adding a chic textural edge to the classic shade.

Gentle Elements
Think soft watercolours and weathered looks with light textiles and natural textures.

Tassels and Trims
A lot of the added detail this season will be seen in the trims and edging details. However, think clean lines not fussy. Look for ruffles, tassels, and scalloped edges.
