HOME decor trends for 2018

What is in and what is out in 2018?


I love pouring over the latest décor trends. I know it is easy to buy into buzzy choices that made you cringe a few years later. So how do you avoid dropping serious cash on the next sponge painted wall or worse, avocado appliance? A safe choice is to just go for a classic home with timeless classy design... like my endless love with scandinavian style that seams to never fall off track. But for those who want to pop it up, make your home more trendy and joyful with a strong character. Here I take together the best decorating trends worth trying in 2018 to help you choose the good from the bad and future-proof your décor.

IKEA IDEAS


1. STRONG COLOUR PIGMENTS


We are looking at a lot more colours... darker wood... and even a little sixties influence.

Above: Pantone Ultra Violet

Vintage look in blend with very modern. Beautiful materials, velvet and stone with meta.




2. METALIC ACCENT





3. DARK WOOD


Dark wood is in... has been for a while but in 2018 it is coming even stronger than before supposedly as a consequence from these strong pigmented colours, dark wood just blends better in a more soothing way and then popped with some metallic accent.







3. TROPICAL PRINTS and tiling patterns


We were already seeing this a little in 2017, prints all over... the prediction is that 2018 will have its focus on tropical prints and natural colours. Again popped with metallic accent.


And on we go with beautiful tropical patterns and metallic pop


We see it more and more amazing tiles will pop up the room incredibly... don't be afraid to try.


Decorated furniture fronts or cabinet doors with elaborate carvings, laser treatments, glass, with stone decors or prints and varnishes. This is by KARE.


4. popped Kitchen


Last but not least I am going to mention the kitchen... but that could be a post by it self but just to say that also in the kitchen trends there will be a introduction to a more vibrant colours with metallic influence together with real materials... stone, marble etc. with that it can not go wrong.




Again in 2018 kitchen trends we see the same combination of materials. Strong pigments together with natural materials wood and stone popped with metal. This time it is gold stronger than ever... we have been seeing this golden touch lately but also copper was very strong in 2016 and 2017 but 2018 gold will take over

If you are refurbishing you home or just want to do a touch up... use this as a guide but remember... what ever you do... what colours and which materials you choose.... as long as it is in harmony with the style of your home it is going to look great.
