Are you looking to give your home design an uplift with the arrival of colder weather? Maybe your current interior design screams summer and spring? If you don’t know where to turn, don’t worry! We are going to talk about the newest trends for 2018’s interior design, let’s get started.
White is out and pastels are in. Whether it be muted blush tones or pale blues, the past trends of all white have been swapped for a little bit more colour. Zillow’s 2017 Paint Colors Analysis study discovered that homes with blue bathrooms commonly sold for $5,400 more than expected. Therefore maybe these pastels will not only be the trend but will also be the most cost effective option if you plan to sell! Not only this, but bright yellows and greens are becoming prevalent. It seems as though pairing pastels with bright or gem like primary colours is the newest trend for 2017 and 2018.
Lighter and brighter paint colors may be trending but dark furniture is in. Pairing these bright colours with dark browns or black will create a powerful colour scheme leaving your guests feeling like are on vacation in the tropics. Not only this but having a darker accent pieces like dark green glassware or a dark blue rug can really tie everything together.
Adding texture to this bright palette of colours is essential to creating a balanced room. Textures like wicker baskets or wood furniture can bring everything back to a warmer feel. Not only this but unique light fixtures reminiscent of Morroco and Mexico have become very popular and add a bohemian feel. Adding large leafy plants adds to the relaxed feel of these new tropical trends.
As for your bathroom and kitchen, granite is out and quartz is in! It’s durable, has many different finish options and it’s fresh. Brass is back along with it’s cousin Rose Gold, too afraid to commit to these styles? Don’t worry, gold and silver will still reign supreme. Geometric back splashes are making a big comeback in 2018 along with bright kitchen appliances (GREEN will be huge! Just you watch). You will never believe it but velvet is also making a comeback, whether it be a velvet couch or stool adding this texture is surprisingly very attractive.
Its seems as though design trends are leaning towards a more retro feel for 2018. Shapes such as squares and triangles are popular with a bohemian feel intertwined. Pastel colours are a changed compared to 2017’s dark greens, blacks and whites. And textures such as velvet and wicker are making a comeback in a huge way. Minimalism was popular for so long that it was only time before bright colours made a hit. The new trend is maximalism while still incorporating muted colours because you wouldn’t want to scare everyone right off the bat!
