Each year brings a new set of design trends and we’re excited to share some of the top trends that are expected to dominate 2018. From natural materials to bright colors, here are a few trends you can look forward to this year:
Rich jewel tones are warming up homes, from statement couches and sofas (when designers usually recommended neutral colors), paint (think Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet) and even kitchens, from cabinetry to appliances. These bold colors often serve two purposes: adding a pop of color to a room and creating a visual focal point.
Mixing metals used to be a no-no but now it’s a definite yes. When done right, mixed metals can look great together. Up the ante by mixing metals and textures: think brass accents with matte black finishes and warm wood tones or natural stone. These modern and eclectic combinations add visual interest to your spaces.
Bring a peaceful and calming vibe through the use of natural materials like greenery, jute and warm wood tones. Natural wood has become increasingly popular thanks to its ability to work with many different decorating styles but also for its durability.
Matte Black Finishes
Be on the lookout for matte black finishes, replacing last year’s satin brass. Matte black will show up in bathrooms as well as kitchens, creating a definite statement look. This smooth and versatile finish is a sophisticated and chic neutral that works with just about any color or style, from traditional to modern, contemporary and more.
Curves and Soft Lines
Say so long to hard lines and hello to soft, curvy shapes. The square and boxy edges will make way for soft lines, creating a more relaxed and comfortable environment.
