The Biggest Décor Trends of 2018

Decor trends

Though you always want your home to look classic and timeless, it’s hard to deny the fact that trends do influence a large part of our lives, and décor is no exception. As much as you may avoid them, they tend to creep in subtle ways like an UltraViolet wall or rose gold candle stand. In much the same way that trends influence our fashion, it is important to incorporate trends that work for you while still staying true to your own personality and style. We always believe that the most beautiful interiors are those that reflect the people who live in them. When you do want to incorporate larger trends, pick and choose them carefully and stick with those that you think will stand the test of time. Here are a few trends from 2018 that we love and think you will too!
Apart from the complex Ultra Violet shade that Pantone has announced their colour of the year, we think that monochrome is going to be big for 2018. Minimalism has always been a huge fashion and décor trend and monotone colours really play into this. Using different shades of one hue in your home has the unique ability to look both interesting and subtle at the same time. The key is to pick a shade that you know works well and then playing with multiple hues at the same time. There is a fine line between boring and beautiful and this trend steps lightly between the two.

Rose gold had a serious moment in 2017 and we don’t think it’s ending anytime soon! Metallics are a huge trend when it comes to materials for your home and 2018 is no different. Did you know that Pinterest searches for ‘Mixed Metals’ was up 423% in 2017 over the previous year? Look at adding metallic elements to every room with stainless steel, brass, coloured metals and even simple silvers. Kitchens are seeing the biggest change with stainless steel taking over from tile and ceramics.

Jewel Tones

Last year’s Pantone colour Greenery helped us embrace our love for deep, emerald hues and all the other moody tones that come along with it. Jewel tones go hand in hand with velvet (which was one of 2017’s biggest trends) so it is only natural that these deep, rich colours were all the
rage. We still can’t get enough of those deep purples, sapphires, burgundies and emeralds that keep cropping up and think that they will continue to glow through 2018. We also see these tones being complemented with sleek black marble, rich dark wood and lots of wall panelling in the coming year.

Nature Lover
Bringing nature home in unique and creative ways is a great way to bring in the new year. Think of botanical prints, 
floral cutlery and crockery, natural materials for the home and lots of plants, to bring this trend closer to home. Designers are choosing to use materials and products that reflect their passion for sustainability and the natural world in new and exciting ways. 2018 is going to be a great year for environmentally friendly materials and oxygen producing plants in the home.

With brands like Gucci entering the home décor space, you can be sure to see many more fashion-inspired pieces adorning the homes of those around you. Prepare for rich, over the top designs with lots of vibrant colours, embellishments, patterns, applique, and embroidery. These
will extend across home linens, soft furnishings, and accents.



Curved Silhouette
2017 saw a lot of changes when it came to the silhouettes people chose with geometry standing out quite prominently. With the advent of 2018, we believe that straight lines will give way to 70s inspired curves and the softness of these shapes will stand out in 2018. Curved sofas are super retro and look very cool in any home as they help divide a space and also look great from every angle. They hug your coffee table beautifully while adding a sense of drama to a rectangular or square room. We’re loving curvy, vintage silhouettes and think you’ll be seeing a lot more of these in the year to come!
