2018 brings lots of great trends to interior design. One of the trends I am most excited about is the Pantone color of the year, purple. This color is a beautiful, vibrant shade of purple.
In addition to the purple, you will see emerald green, bright yellow, orange, and red. Anyone who knows me knows that I love color! As brights are on the way in, blush pink is on the way out!
It seems the minimalism look is fading out as well as clients want warm and inviting spaces to relax and enjoy. Design clients are wanting spaces decorated with comfort and with splashes of color. I’m seeing lots of velvet in fun geometric patterns and florals in beautiful colorways.
Kitchens are also trending this year. As the all-white kitchen remains a classic, I’m seeing kitchens using dark colors, like dark grey and navy on all cabinets.
In regard to hardware, No more matchy-matchy! It’s absolutely ok to mix your metals. I am seeing lots of brass!
Brass brings a retro, yet warm feel to any space. Rose gold seems to be on its way out!
Another one of my favorites is wallpaper. Wallpaper is back and better than ever! The patterns are fresh and the textures are amazing! Power baths are a great way to incorporate this trend! Go bold!
Accessories are always in! I’m seeing lots of naturals items made out of wood, such as figures, boxes, and trays. Another in-item is the bar cart. Not only is it just for your liquor, but now it is being used as a coffee cart! Bar carts are great in bright fun colors!
Lighting remains an important accessory. Pendant lighting is still very popular as are bedroom chandeliers, gone are the ceiling fans – I hope!
2018 will be a great decorating year! I look forward to incorporating all of the trends in my upcoming projects!!
