The new year brings with it new home design ideas and suddenly we see them everywhere. While some of them we don’t think much of, there are a few that we just can’t wait to try ourselves. Here’s a list of the top 9 home decor ideas worth your time.
1. Floral Patterns
Gone are the days when the only place you would see floral prints and patterns in, was your grandmother’s couch or furniture and décor with feminine looks. Floral prints are back in a big way in 2018. And it’s not just flowers this time. The floral prints that are in vogue this season also involve geometric patterns resembling floral prints and even prints like palm leaves.
2. Geometric Decor
Bold and colorful geometric patterns are back in action. So, it’s time to let your hair down, go all out and experiment with an accent wall sporting bold geometric patterns or get a statement area rug with an eye-catching geometric pattern.
3. Warmer Colors
Warm colors are making a big splash in many homes this season. Colors that one would hesitate to use earlier, are now complementing the neutral shades adorning the living room walls, as accents. Large pieces of furniture and walls are now seen in earthy hues such as reds, yellows, purples and greens. If you aren’t ready to jump right up on the bandwagon yet, you could test the waters by using these colors as accents in your artwork or small pieces of furniture.
4. Colorful Kitchens
Give your cooking space (done up in neutral tones), a colorful twist by adding a bold splash of color to some areas. How about trying a bold and cheerful color on the kitchen island and adding a beautiful accent to your otherwise neutral kitchen?
5. Black and White
We all know that the black and white is a color combination that can never really go out of vogue, although it does ebb and flow each season. This year, it’s made a huge comeback and seems to be visible everywhere, balancing out other bold décor trends doing the rounds.
6. Stone Kitchen Sinks
Replace your stainless-steel kitchen sink with one in stone, and add an organic, earthy appeal to your contemporary kitchen design.
7. Tone on Tone
Tone on tone is a décor trend in which you try to match items to an existing color in a setting. Like trying to match your wall color to the color of the trims. Doing this won’t just make the room feel more spacious, it’ll also keep you up to date with the latest décor trend. Try matching furniture pieces to the color of your walls. If you aren’t ready to go all out with this trend, try adding accents to the décor, matching them to the color of the walls to create harmony.
8. Velvet Furniture
Get your living room ready for 2018, by investing on an elegant velvet piece of furniture. Colors to keep in mind when making the purchase would be purple, deep blue, or even the bright and cheery fuchsia.
9. Natural Materials
This year is seeing many natural elements making their way back into the décor scene. So, get ready to bring in many design elements that you felt were dated and not usable any longer and stay abreast with the décor trend.
It’s time to get that wicker chair down from the attic, and give it a face-lift with some plush floral cushions. You’ll find such pieces making an appearance in many other homes as well.
