As arbitrary as the new year might seem, it’s a great opportunity for a reboot. When you’re deciding what to overhaul, though, don’t forget about the home front! Interior design styles are constantly shifting, and to keep up with the trends, you’ll need to know what’s changed.
For decor lovers looking for 2019 decorating tips, here are some of the best new home trends:
Overtaking mid-century modern as the furnishing and color selection du jour, the Memphis movement emphasizes primary colors and graphic shapes in a way that hasn’t been seen since the eighties. Designers are also turning away from straight, rigid furniture lines and choosing enveloping tub chairs and curved sofas.
Some of the majors colors looking to make a breakout in 2019 are blush, dusty pink, and bronze. Warm colors and feminine tones for your walls and dashes of soft pink for breaking up expanses of taupe or neutrals will go a long way towards updating a tired room.
Sustainable, Handmade Pieces
Whether the material in question is jute, rice paper, or clay, items made by hand using sustainable goods are definitely in. More and more people are using these grounding elements in their homes to feel more in touch with the earth and their roots.
The neutral colors and simple materials promoted by minimalism and Scandinavian design are in decline, with bright colors and graphic patterns taking their place. Don’t be afraid to mix textures, patterns and colors.
Boldly Patterned Backsplashes
While simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, there’s a clear shift towards higher-impact kitchens with bold color choices and graphic tiles. Either way, we’ll likely see more pop and punch in 2019’s kitchens.
