We did it, we made it through 2017 and now 2018 is screaming around the corner. The design trends are already becoming clear as people scramble to create a sense of a fresh start in their homes. If you are among them you can get an early start with these awesome trends that will be popular over the next twelve months.
Asymmetrical Wall Collages
These have always been popular to an extent, but they weren’t much of a trend until now. Asymmetrical wall collages were once a cute way to showcase your family photos. Now they are becoming a way to make a wall less drab by displaying various types of art. Tip: mix complementary colors and frame shapes.
Oddly, indoor plants fell out of fashion for a long time and it was never clear why. Now they are making a big comeback and it is a great thing. Not only do they bring some color and natural beauty into any home, but they are good for the air and can even attract the sorts of insects that keep your house free of more serious pests. Mutli-colored plants are especially in this year.
Creative Ceiling Features
People don’t generally think of their ceiling as a place to make a design statement and that is a shame. They are missing out on so many opportunities to create a more interesting looking room. Creative ceiling features and statement ceilings are becoming very popular, so it might be time to try it out yourself. Just be careful not to go overboard and overwhelm the rest of the room.
Mixed Metallic Accents
Metallics were boring for a long time because everyone went for stainless steel, iron or chrome. Now a more tantalizing design choice is gaining traction, using mixed metallics such as copper, bronze, steel and more to create a beautifully accented room. It looks great and it is so much better than past versions that all looked the same.
Terrazzo is one of those things you may have forgotten existed. Popular in art galleries and hotels, it isn’t usually seen in houses these days. Until now, that is. Many design aficionados were skeptical of this one until pictures started to come out showing off the finished product. It looks gorgeous!
