2018 is finally here, and since home décor trends are a notoriously fickle beast, you should expect to see major changes in home designs and décor trends. If your new year’s resolution is to refresh your interior home décor, whether it is a pretty piece of furniture, the best bamboo sheets or a fresh coat of paint, here are the top 5 home décor trends you should try:
Artisan Fixtures & Materials
Handmade products will be the rage in 2018. Most designers have noted gravitation towards fixtures from small businesses and local artists. Artisan fixtures, particularly in the light segment help to shift the homes focus from the tech world to the natural world. This trend is only going to intensify as people personalize their spaces to add warmth and focus. And since artisans mimic the natural world, it gives these fixtures an organic quality.
Artisan textures will also be big this year in giving furniture a natural handmade feel. They also take a playful role with a lot of raw edges, applique details and embellishments to give that irresistible touch.
While 2017 was all about warm neutrals, tropical green and sophisticated camel accents, in 2018, expect to see yellow and other warm colors coming back along with other shades people were not comfortable with like coral and red. In the past, we have seen people lean towards neutrals and cool colors. Soft washed pastels like sandy pinks and mint greens will be reimagined in a simple modern design trend. Vibrant deep reds will dominate accent walls to help energize and harmonize spaces.
The cozy living movement will continue in 2018. The desire for a simple, quiet, disconnected lifestyle that makes the home a little haven is still alive. This, however, does not mean that rooms will be casual and down to earth. We are looking at rooms with voluptuous, rounder and softer furniture to give them that high-end feel.
Wood and Plants will continue being the eternal classic even in 2018. Floors with the ragged oak look and wood on cabinets will be the favored look. Other items to look out for include flora based systems, shower plants, furniture that grows, more indoor plants, and many more natural elements.
This does not end with wood and plants. You can take advantage of the gorgeous views outside your home or incorporate natural limestone to set the tone of your spaces. Try to choose natural elements in your home and long-lasting material to create beautiful areas with longevity to stand the test of time.
Although millennial pink is still around, it is now morphing into Lavender which sits in the same sugarcoated palette, but with a blue undertone that gives it more depth. Lavender will be used to bring out soft tones with deeper accents. Try anchoring this color with darker colors like warm woods and teal to give it an elegant take. You can also incorporate this soft frilly color into your bedroom with lavender rugs, lamps, tacky chandeliers, walls or even the best bamboo sheets in the same shade.
