Interior Design Trends For 2018
The following are what we consider to be the top interior design trends for 2018. We hope you are inspired enough by these ideas to incorporate your own version into your home decor.
Return To Nature
One of the biggest trends to look out for next year will be a return to nature. As people rely more heavily on technology with each passing year, a need to reconnect with nature is emerging and is manifesting itself in the designs and styles of our homes. You will see an increase in the use of organic materials and traditional handcrafts in the decor or the trendiest rooms. According to Homes to Love “A new type of earthen luxury that focuses on a sense of wellbeing” will be reflected in everything from building materials to accessories.
To follow on with the “Return to Nature” trend, watch out for the rise in popularity of vegetal colours according to Zakiya Kassam writing for Home Trends. Not only are vegetables healthy for our physical bodies, but they are also shades which can soothe our emotional sides. The “celery green” tones in the bathroom pictured above is just one example of the delicious shades of vegetable-inspired hues that you’ll be seeing in all of the most modern homes in 2018.
Comfy Curvy Is In
At the Paris Design Week’s show called Maison et Objet held this fall, the trend in furniture for 2018 will be big and curvy. The show featured pieces extremely comfortable, oversized pieces that were a direct response to the discomfort that many are feeling in this unstable and insecure world in which we live. According to the show’s coordinator, Marie-Jo Malait, you will be seeing “rounder, softer shapes, and soothing, cocooning pieces that, more than ever, make home a sanctuary.”
Deep, Rich Colours
Darker colours for your walls are on the horizon for 2018. According to the Globe and Mail , PPG, Olympic Paints and Glidden announced that their colour of the year choices include Black Flame, Black Magic, and Deep Onyx. It’s believed that consumers are looking for colours that speak of strength, protection and stability. The need for feeling safe in times of uncertainty has driven the trend toward these darker hues.
Fish Scale Tiles
These beautiful and trendy fish scale tiles echo the dark rich tones we already mentioned as well as the connection to nature. The ceramic tiles give a lovely and intriguing texture and dimension to walls; they also look amazing on floors. Popular blogger, Kelly Elko recommends trying them out in an entrance vestibule for a unique and unexpected eye-catching effect.
