Everyone deserves to live in a space that brings them comfort and joy. Your space should be a reflection of your personality and style, and it should function in a way that works with how you live your life. The first step to decorating is to know where you’re going, and in order to do this, you need to have a plan. Start with gathering inspiration: interior images, furniture you love, textures and materials. This year’s interior design trends includes molten metallic, seventies inspirations and tropical prints.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “you can never go wrong with black,” and I think it’s true. Black is taking over the interior design world – black furniture, black prints, black walls, finishes, and fixtures, black is all over the place this year. A popular home design trend is having all black walls. This might seem a bit too much to picture, but a black wall creates a powerful and elegant statement in home interior design. You should pair black with light colors since the contrast can help to further enhance the overall size and appearance of the space. This year look out for matte black in bathrooms as well as kitchens. This is a look that’s contemporary and complements a variety of materials and styles, embracing such a versatile finish.
Decorating with textured plants and succulents is a great way to bring greenery to your home. Mix complementing shades of green and offset with dark wooden furniture and metallic accents. Give your home a tropical vibe with rich shades of green and botanical prints. This is perfect for bathrooms or a unique living room. If you’re not into green you can opt for banana leaf patterns.
Statement ceilings and floors have made their way throughout interior design trends this year. When incorporating the design of your ceilings and floor, bold colors and geometric patterns come to mind. If you don’t want to go too overboard with you interior design choices, you can opt for a patterned floor and ceiling. You could also paint the ceiling in one block color. A statement ceiling will create an unusual focal point in the room.
The days are gone when blank walls were actually a thing. One of the best interior design trends of 2018 is wallpaper. If your living space is a bit dull, add an interesting twist with some wallpaper. Some wallpaper designs feature scenery, abstract shapes, and colorful geometric shapes. If you’re not here for the wallpaper trend – add some character to your room with a gallery wall filled with everything from graphic prints and quotes to family photos and artwork.
The kitchen is where most entertaining usually takes place. Say goodbye to white and welcome in more colors. While white kitchens aren’t even close to be going away, expect to see a rise in color for kitchens – other neutrals like gray and blue. An interior design trend this year is darker hues in the kitchen. You can go bold with your kitchen color; paint your cabinets in a bright blue hue or in unexpected shades of green. Bold colors will add more depth to your kitchen. Warm wood tones are becoming a popular replacement for painted cabinets.
A softly curved couch is all the rage these days. Curved couches are a detail that adds a flare of femininity, while maintaining simplicity. People are now moving towards round shaped furniture and smooth fabrics. These shapes resemble furnishings from previous decades, bringing back the 80’s and 70’s. Anything from soft and puffy chairs to curved coffee tables, interior design elements that are all about comfort and elegance.
Purple made it to the list of trends this year. Go all out with a purple sofa or walls, or just add purple accents with details like lamps or soft furnishings.
It’s not a surprise that geometric prints are everywhere this year. You can pair geometric prints with marble furniture and metallics. From bedding to rugs and even wallpapers, it’s a graphic and modern trend that works very well in bedrooms. You can mix pastel tones of pink, rose gold and lilac for a great effect.
