Are you looking to sell but don’t know what is eye catching in this new year? Or have you just purchased your dream home and are ready to spice it up with something memorable? Well have we got a treat for you! Here are the top rated 2018 home trends so far this year…some are bold, some are subtle, but all are loved!
Local artists and small businesses are paving the way for innovation when it comes to light fixtures. Handcrafted and one of a kind pieces are seemingly all the rage. And the best part? You can highlight these fixtures anywhere! In a grand foyer entry, over your dining room table, as pendant lighting over a bar or even corner lighting in a living room. These pieces are versatile and can definitely add a little extra something to any room you incorporate them in to.
The main trend for 2017 seemed to be a little tech-obsessed and we are glad it’s over. This year really focuses on natural elements making any room seem less aggressive and more comfortable for it’s inhabitants and guests. Using fresh materials such as stone, granite, raw wood and live plants will allow an organic and serene ambiance take over the room.
Are we all ready for the rose gold trend to be over? YES! As much as we love all that is rose gold, we are ready for the trend to be toned down to a manageable level once again. This year, rose gold is being replace with copper accents. A little more bold and a little more earthy, copper accents are perfect for every home no matter how feminine or masculine. It’s a much needed breath of fresh air. And, let’s not forget about the brass accents! We know, we know…brass accents are different than copper, but brass is an up and coming trend that is bound to make the 2018 list. So take a look between the two, because even though they are very similar, the accents they bring when placed correctly can be very different.
RICHER COLOR PALLETES
So the rule goes…don’t overcrowd your space so that it looks too busy. We agree, but mixing richer colors in with muted can really make a room not only seem professionally decorated, but a visually stimulating space as well. And combining a bolder color with a few of the other trends we have in our article can really be a winning combination! Try a dramatic read or a vibrant blue with some copper accents and geometric patterns. Now that’s the start to a great room.
Geometric patterns are not a new trend, but they are a highlighted topic for the 2018 year. And we couldn’t be happier! Just like floral patterns and brass accents, we hope that geometrics are here to stay. With their dramatic presence, this year we are going to see bolder colors mixed with oversized patterns. But don’t think that geometrics are only for the floor. Find these patterns in some fun new window treatments or as a throw that can add some pop to an otherwise solid décor.
For many, wallpaper in general is a project they would like to avoid, but 2017 started to bring this trend back. With more and more jumping on the wallpaper bandwagon, the patterns and colors available are really starting to pop. And none is better that the agate wallpaper pattern! With natural uniformed lines reminiscent of natural patterns or geodes, it’s a visually stimulating and refreshing artistic touch. We love this bold trend for 2018.
