Whether you’re upgrading your home to prepare for sale or to enjoy for yourself, these are the interior design style trends everyone is talking about this year.
Imagine having sweet dreams at home under gorgeous fabrics. Try upholstering your headboard in a jew-toned velvet to add a touch of sophistication in your bedroom. Even better, help your bed stand out with a textural, out-of-the-box headboard! Use ceiling-to-floor curtains, mirrors, and floating shelves to elevate your bed’s look.
If your bedroom is large enough to accommodate, make a big statement with a canopy bed! Whether they are traditionally styled or are more modern, there is a canopy bed that goes perfectly with every bedroom design. From old-world four-post beds with curtains and plenty of flounce, to a more sleek and modern white canopy bed with minimal details.
The retro-inspired boudoir vanity is *officially* back on trend, and it’s an easy addition to any design style. The best part? They’re totally functional! Vanities are perfect for an awkward corner in the room, or to create a shocking visual impact with an oversized mirror in the middle of a wall. Choose any color, texture, and material for your space, but we suggest going unexpected.
Darken the Mood
Optic white isn’t going anywhere, but designers are leaning towards moody, matte kitchens this year. Set the tone with a rich and unexpected color for a more nuanced look. The antithesis to the tendency to go for all-white kitchens, black and moodier hued kitchen design ideas add a sense of drama to any home, are easier to manage, and are an elegant alternative to standard ivories. Finish off with slick matte touches.
If standing out with bold colors and textures isn’t enough, opt for handmade, custom furniture pieces. Further, know and understand where your pieces come from by commissioning its build! Companies like Tuckaseegee Timberworks, Hedrick Custom Designs, and Barden Built Remodeling can work with you to build exactly what you envision for your kitchen.
Art deco influence has come in and out of the limelight several times over the past 90+ years. It began trickling into design in 2018, but will become more prominent this year. From color shift (lots of pinks!) to textile design and furniture silhouettes, expect Gatsby-inspired looks to populate the market.
Tech-centered decor dominated interior design last year. In response, designers are shifting toward fresh, natural elements in accents, furniture, decor, and even wallpaper. Materials such as stone, copper, concrete, and granite will be more prominent. Floral accents and floral wallpaper can lighten and soften the ambiance of the room. Push the boundaries of where you can incorporate these pieces.
Artisinal Lighting Fixtures
The installation of unique fixtures can elevate any space. Vintage lights, pendants, and sconces in brass and copper finishes are making their comeback in 2019. Designers are pushing for homeowners to mix and match metals and be more expressive with their lighting choices.
The overarching theme of the year can be summed up in two words: Go Bold. Mirroring the world around us, designers urge homeowners to turn up the volume in their rooms this year.
