Are you planning a room makeover to sell your home or update your living space? You may want to familiarize yourself with the latest trends in interior design and décor. Designers on the cutting edge of home interior trends are using certain elements now, so there’s a good chance these trends will explode in popularity this year. Get ahead of the curve by incorporating the 2019 design trends that work for your home, budget, and lifestyle now.
Trend #1: Softer Whites
Designers are taking a step away from the colder, stark whites we have seen in the last few years. Selecting whites that contain some grey allows for a warming effect, especially in modern spaces. White walls are classic and allow for lots of fun color accessorizing in furniture, art and textiles, but there is an interest in warming up spaces with an interesting white that contains a grey (not a yellow) hue.
Trend #2: Connections to Nature
We are seeing an increasing interest in featuring natural elements in interior design and décor. This year, designers are acknowledging this growing desire for lighter, airier spaces, and selecting more wood materials to incorporate into home décor. This is a similar shift as we saw with white paint coloring— a jump from clean and cold to bright and warm. More and more, folks are discovering the importance of time in nature (for physical and mental health) and taking the initiative to incorporate nature-inspired elements in their homes, bringing some warmth and peace to their spaces.
Trend #3: Colored Kitchen Cabinetry
Designers have been slowly shifting from white cabinetry to colored cabinets in kitchens. Popular colors like dark green, navy, tan, black and charcoal make a bold statement in an unexpected way. Colorful cabinetry also works to add some warmth and create a mood that features the kitchen as a fun and interesting space. Another plus is these colors pair beautifully with fixtures and hardware in brass and other contrasting metals like pewter and gunmetal.
