Happy New Year All!
With a fresh calendar year comes that time where the entire office debates what they predict to be the hottest interior trends for the year to come.
In order to keep the peace this year, we have decided to turn to ye olde’ Pinterest to confirm what we can expect to see trending over the next 12 months.
So why is Pinterest such a reputable source you might ask? Well, no interior lover can deny that decorating a home is personal and totally evolves over time as trends develop and family dynamics change. This means design is never done! There’s always spaces and places that people want to update which keeps Pinners coming back for more and more inspiration. From complete renovations to decorative refreshes, Pinterest has it all and these are their top predicted trends for 2018:
• Resort-inspired style: Spa-inspired bathrooms and rattan furniture bring the vacay vibes home (saves for “spa bathrooms” +269%)
• The magic of metallics: Metals mesh with any colour palette, but to really amp up a space, mix different finishes together (saves for “mixed metals” +423%)
• Hello, terrazzo: The forgotten flooring of the '70s is brightening up ceilings, entryways and everything in between (saves for “terrazzo” +316%)
• The fifth wall: A statement ceiling can transform a room from the top down with bold paint, striking wallpaper or intricate texture (saves for “statement ceilings” +310%)
• Beautiful to the bone: Bone inlaid tiles take an ordinary piece from meh to marvellous with maximalist drama and geometric designs (saves for “bone inlay” +207%)
• Wood wins: Wall tiles and flooring in shades of grey, or with a herringbone pattern, are versatile, add dimension and make any space more modern (saves for “herringbone patterns” +131%)
• Statement doors: A colourfully painted front door, or friendly message on a mat, is the new way to welcome guests (saves for “colourful doors” +121%)
• Patterned plants: Houseplants, like the popular prayer plant, go beyond green with vibrant, patterned foliage and flashes of colour (saves for “patterned plants” +533%)
• Wall art is big: Buh-bye, blank space! Large posters, works of art and photography prints are blowing up (saves for “big wall art” +637%)
• Sage advice: Soften up a space with sage, the new neutral (saves for “sage” +170%)
So there you have it! Watch this space as we begin to incorporate some of these trends into our design concepts for properties throughout 2018.
