2018 was all about technology and how it could be incorporated in the home. We are now seeing a shift back to natural elements and organic materials. Fresh and natural accents such as stone, copper, granite, and even concrete. Bringing in natural and organic features (including plants) will bring a feeling of serenity to your decor. These accents will provide a worldly vibe, as well.
It seems that every season a new floral pattern is "in" - and every decade has its distinctive flower print, from the colorful cartoonish flowers of the sixties to the soft petals of Laura Ashley in the nineties. 2019 is no different but our florals are fresh and modernized. A new, playful take on scale, size, and contrasting color patterns will bring new life to your interior decor.
Once hidden behind walls and relegated to piping, copper has started making an appearance in stylish home decor choices. From hammered copper deep kitchen sinks to copper lanterns to shelf accents, copper is the star of 2019. Say goodbye to rose gold and embrace this warm, versatile material.
Last year, "millennial pink" and soft tones brought lightness to our spaces. This year, it's all about saturated color with deep tones setting a bold tone for interiors. Using hunter greens, deep eggplant, rich navy, and opaque golds brings a level of sophistication to a space. Think peacock colors and inviting fabrics. Darker or deeper colors do not necessarily make a room feel heavy (a common design fear) if used appropriately.
Brass is back! Its elegance forgotten for many years to make room for stainless steel or matte black, brass is making is comeback in kitchens and bathrooms. Stylized wall sconces add memorable design accents to dark hallways. Goose-necked kitchen faucets warm up kitchen sinks. Brass got a bad reputation coming out of the 90s, but when used as an accent rather than as the showpiece, brass is a fantastic choice.
Thanks to the Moroccan trellis shape that brought a worldly vibe to our homes a few years back, geometric shapes have been growing in popularity. From classic penny tiles to bold, colorful designs, geometric patterns bring interest to any space. You can select throw pillows in complementary colors and shapes to add a pop of color to your seating, or you can install your patterns via cement tiles to create areas of interest in half baths and laundry rooms. Big impact, little effort.
Trough (or bucket) sinks are all the range. The vintage decor movement has been growing over the past 10 years and it's not stopping anytime soon. Call it the Joanna Gaines effect, but the shabby chic style we used to know has grown up into anything but shabby. "Farmhouse chic" is one of the most searched terms on Pinterest. Trough sinks bring a rustic feel to an otherwise polished design. They bring a softness to new builds and a touch of character.
