At the close of 2017, industry experts pondered the year ahead and told us what they think is in store for interiors in 2018. You may be thinking “Does it really change?” The answer is yes! Interior design for residential home styles evolve, expand, and mature every year and it’s so much fun to update right along with it every few years to keep your house looking fresh. Here are a few of our favorite styles that are being talked about right now:
Earth Tones. The stark black and white that you imagine when you picture contemporary design is over. This year, earth tones, especially reds, bronzes, and oranges, are big. It looks especially great on tile or walls. You can find plenty of small decorative items in these shades too to bring the whole room together. Of course, a large centerpiece, like your couch, would look gorgeous in one of these hues as well.
Exposed Brick. Our favorite look to pull together the earth tones trend is to let your living room have exposed bricks if your home has them. Brick goes great with reds, blues, greens, and browns. As an added plus, it will save you money and stress from having to pick out a paint color for the walls!
Maximalism. Maximalism marks a move away from the Scandinavian-inspired minimalism that has dominated styles everywhere in recent years. If you’re picturing IKEA furniture, you’re thinking of minimalism. What’s current for today’s trendy living rooms is mixing bold patterns and prints. You can find couches and chairs with bold prints and mix-and-match pillow of varying prints to get this effect. Another easy way to pull this off? Fun and funky rugs.
