Interior Decor Trends for 2018 – Are you in?

I know I’m not the only one that wishes I could change my décor every other month, right?! I would just love to have a different theme and color scheme more often, but we tend to stick with “one” for a while until we decide to make that drastic switch-up. As a way to comfort my ache (so hard to do by the way), I try to stay up to date with the latest trends and incorporate it in my existing décor without having to change it all at once. You can split up your projects and do bits and pieces so you can satisfy your need for the ‘new and different’. Are you interested in changing some of your interior design to match the current trends? Let’s go through some of the hottest interior styles for 2018 so that you can start your transformation!

Geometric patterns

Did you notice last year’s geometric patterns were mostly around accent rugs and various cushions? This year, geometric patterns are making their way into the bold design of tiles, wallpaper and even art pieces! Decorative touches such as beautiful layered tiles are the perfect option for your shower or kitchen. If you are interested in redoing your backsplash or creating a unique look for your home, using some geometric patterns will definitely help create a trendy look!Indigo style tones

Pastel tones and indigo colors are becoming a big favorite this year when it comes to the best options for enhancing a room. Indigo is part of my own living room color scheme and I LOVE it! I paired it with a pastel color (beige), and contrasted with a medium grey. If you’re going for painting an entire room, it can sometimes be difficult to accessorize with what you already have, but using a pastel and neutral tone can give a room real texture and life without changing your entire decor. On the other hand, adding in colored portraits and a little indigo touch is one way to create a pattern that will not only add consistency and cheerfulness to the décor, but also bring in a new style and invite the spring and summertime looks!

Bold Colors

Speaking of colors, apart from tropical, there are a number of color palettes that pop out and have an awesome boldness to it – that can be another way to transform your living space. Be bold with your colors too! Going with a bold color can even make your space appear larger, which can be very beneficial if you have a smaller space to work with. Bold colors can be one of the best ways to ground a look, create a scheme that can open any room, and make it appear much more artistic. You can add in these bold colors and textures by pairing them with other accents in the space including curtains, cushions, rugs, accent tables, and much more! There are a few ways to introduce these stylish effects and create art piece layers across your entire space. Use it… boldly 🙂

Luxury metallic

Metallics were also very popular last year, but adding a metallic look into your home decor this year, means a more luxurious look. I think gold metallic is set to be one of the biggest trends of the year and it has a softer look than silver, which can be used to bring together a unique elegance and a more sophisticated trendy feel. I think when most people think “metallic colors” they often think of doorknobs, handles and lamp designs, but there are so many beautiful ways to add gold (and silver) metallic decorating pieces that you would not know where to start or what to get! There’s now metallic everything – metallic candle holders, metallic decorative vases, metallic decorative accessories, metallic mirrors, even metallic furniture! It’s the perfect addition if you’re going with a modern, lavish look. Would you integrate metallic in your interior scheme?

Ombre – licicious

The look of shading, or Ombre, interior is one of the latest trends. You are likely to see this look in a variety of different ways and it’s generally something that takes some expertise to do properly so make sure you hire a professional – unless your significant other is handy :). If you’re going with an ombre look, once you have chosen some of your color way, you can start to coordinate your accessories and balance the colors of the wall by mixing in various shades. It will add depth and a very unique style to the room of choice. If you feel like changing the wall color to ombre would be too risky or you’re not too sure, you can also go with ombre curtains. There are also some deliciously-visual ombre accent rugs you can add as a start-up!Shining, shining, yeah!

This can be a more involved project but picking a flooring option that reflects light back into your room can be a welcomed addition to your improved decor. Also, adding a shimmery look in the form of decorative paint or a shiny style carpet – so innovative and fun! It serves as foundation for great spring and summer looks. A blush rose color can be one perfect option for the new season and it can go great with other tones like white and black (one of my favorites!). This style is very adaptable and can run through the different seasons without needing much change, other than the accent décor pieces if you’re changing the color scheme in the room. Between the shining floor options, shining floor tones and a series of prints (or solids) that can complement the look – phew! What a way to shine!

Two-tone kitchen

I love two-tones, but two-ones in the kitchen? I’m in! Again, a bit more involved project, but you can change your cabinetry to a two-tone effect using colors that stand out and vibrant paint. I think this remains as one of the best ways to modernize your kitchen. Using a lighter cabinet trend and brightened paint colors can create the contrast that you need to build a look that will impress a few eyes!
