For the home, 2018 will be about mixing natural elements with bold accents. Plus, it seems that many long-standing trends will be on their way out – you’ll finally get a break of rose gold everything! Scroll down for 7 stunning décor trends you’ll want to add to your home this year…
The best part is you can incorporate these décor trends without doing a complete overhaul in an outdated room. Follow these tips for a trendy home in 2018:
1. Indoor plants
Pot plant lovers can breathe easily because oxygen-producing greenery is sticking around. There is, however, a move away from succulents, and the focus is now on plants with interesting foliage. Think delicious monsters, mother-in-law’s tongue and delicate ferns.
Pantone announced that its colour of the year is ultraviolet, and with that, purple hues are invading décor trends. Different shades of purple will be popular, with a special focus on lavender, which might gradually replace millennial pink…
3. Jewel tones
Another colour element that will get its chance to shine this year is deep jewel tones – replacing the pastels we’ve been seeing too much of lately. Statement walls are out, but why not decorate an entire room in a jewel shade for some drama? Otherwise, add pops of it around your home with furniture or smaller decorative elements.
4. …As well as warm earthy tones
If neutrals are more your thing, try warm earthy tones in your palette – they’re just as hot in 2018. Gone are the days of grey, beige, and greige – rather opt for ivory, sand, and rusty reds.
While you can’t go wrong with minimalism, 2018 is the year to go full-on boho – more is more. This is a fun and invigorating trend taken directly from the runways. The trick to pulling off maximalism is not to pile heaps of things together, but rather to curate collections that speak to each other and their setting.
6. Brass and mixed metallics
Goodbye rose gold, hello brass! Brass, and more specifically unpolished brass, is replacing rose gold this year as the metal of choice. Don’t chuck out all your rose gold knick-knacks just yet as another trend is combining and contrasting different types of metals.
7. Handmade objects
There is a shift away from mass-produced factory objects and a focus on handmade objects including ceramics, woven baskets and carpentry. This will not only make your home unique, but you are also supporting artisans and small businesses at the same time.
