2018 is not coming quietly! Check out these new design trends.
As many of you have already noticed, home design trends look to be more bold than years before. According to many industry experts, you’ll be seeing design trends such as luxe velvet, vivid jewel tones and brass complimented with organic accents. Always remember to stick with what you love, regardless of what’s in or out. If your spring goal is to refresh your home with a new coat of paint or to add a pretty piece of furniture, or to update your kitchen or bath, you may want to try one of these top design trends.
What’s Out – All White Kitchens
Although white kitchens will always be a classic color choice, warm wood tones, and other colors such as gray, warm neutrals and shades of blue will dominate the new kitchen color palette. Rich and unique tend to be what is emerging in kitchen colors.
What’s Out – Accent Painted Walls
In the 80’s and 90’s accent walls were an instant way to make a room look like it was decorated. But instead, try incorporating a textured wall or wainscotting made from milled wood or wainscoting on one wall in a room. ( According to Houzz, both are trending for 2018). Textured callings will add a punch of interest to your rooms as well.
What’s Out – Word Art
Although sentimental sayings on pillows and fun signs are a quick way to add a focal point to a room, they are becoming a little overdone according to some designers. The exception to this would be certain objects such as vintage signs and other objects that have been re purposed into art. Try expressing yourself in less literal ways in 2018. Try an unusual piece of wall art or a special accessory that you found on a recent trip. Get creative!
What’s out – Architectural Objects Randomly placed
Before buying that barn door or other architectural element at a local barn sale, be sure it will blend with the style of your home. If your home is traditional don’t put a barn door on the wall. Likewise avoid installing traditional beams and formal columns in a suburban space. These design trends look fabulous in the right setting but misplaced in the wrong one.
What’s in- Heavy Kitchen Cabinetry
Being in the market to update my own kitchen, I’m seeing a lot of cabinetry in the new kitchen design trends. Open cabinetry is taking a step back to this new kitchen design trend for 2018. Remember too, the warmer tones are stepping up in the kitchen color palette.
What’s In – Cozy Colors
What’s In – Brass
Do what you Love!
Regardless of what’s in or out in design trends, its important that your home reflects who you are and what you love! From beautiful accessories to your favorite color palette, every home can be designed to look and feel fabulous!
