Another year has come and gone. And for a lot of homeowners, that means it’s time for a clean start. Whether it’s adopting a healthier diet, being more involved in your community or getting your home in tip-top shape, this month is filled with positive resolutions.
For those interested in trying a fresh look for your home this year, we’re sharing the top home design trends to look out for in 2018. Feel free to take a peek and add some of these modern ideas to your own home this year.
Tone on Tone
Popular in fashion, the tone-on-tone trend is starting to blend into home design as well. Consider painting your trim and wall the same color for an interesting aesthetic that elongates your walls. If you really want to dive in, try painting some of your furniture a similar shade as your walls for a home design that will make heads turn.
Brushed silver may have been popular a year ago, but 2018 is all about the golden brass tones. Warm and subtle, brass accents are a nice substitute for your typical stainless steel style. Using brass hardware is an easy way to upgrade your pieces in order to make them feel more customized.
Also making a comeback in fashion, velvet is starting to pop up more in home décor this season. Whether it’s an accent chair, a few pillows or your main living room couch, velvet adds an extra dose of sophistication and style to any space.
Pantone just named ultra violet as its Color of the Year, which means jewel tones like ultra violet are making a comeback in a major way. Not sure you’re ready to take the plunge into full-blown jewel tones? Try a throw pillow with a darker shade instead. Or consider a more toned-down version of the Color of the Year, like lilac.
Known to the Japanese as the art of finding beauty in imperfection, wabi-sabi gives you the opportunity to incorporate more handmade items into your décor for a more personal, organic aesthetic. Look for homemade pottery that doesn’t exactly match or browse your local Farmer’s Market for some unique, handmade throw pillows.
How ever you decide to start your New Year, we hope these top trends for 2018 at least leave you feeling inspired to try something new this year.
