2018 Hottest Décor Trends
The colour pallet and décor trends for the new year are exciting! Here is what we can expect:
Jewel Tones. Neutral colours like grey, beige, and everyone’s new favourite colour, “greige”, are still trending in home design and décor. However, brighter, deeper colours are picking up traction. Not ready to paint dark colours on your walls yet? Don’t worry, these deep jewel tones will match perfectly with your grey walls. Pick them up in accent chairs, wall art, throw blankets and pillows. This will give you a chance to test the trend before committing.
Metallic Accents. Metallic touches are one of the biggest (and shiniest) home décor trends right now and will continue well into 2018. However, it’s very easy to overdo it when it comes to shiny surfaces. The best way to incorporate this home trend is to keep things basic, such as hanging a silver-accented mirror on a wall or buying some copper end tables.
Geometric Patterns. Geometric patterns are trending up in the interior design space, with mesmerizing wallpaper prints leading the charge.
Furniture with Shape. Couches will take cues from the 70’s this season, with quirky curves that liven up your living room and create dimension.
Mixing Textures. Not only will this add layers and depth to your room but will add luxurious fabrics to your bed, chairs, and couches. This can be accomplished through velvet pillows, faux fur rugs, metal wall art and soft blankets.
A bedroom is where you go for rest, so do you really need a desk, TV, sitting area, or even a dresser? Maybe not. Prioritize your furnishing with the most important element of the bedroom: a bed. If you have any space left, consider adding a nightstand or a wall-mounted shelf to double as nightstand. Don’t forget a lamp!
Forget about negative space and add build-ins
