It’s never too early to start thinking about your next home remodeling project, and with the new year approaching fast, Luxury Home Solutions is keeping a watchful eye on color and decor trends forecast for 2018.
Here are a few trends to watch for in the coming year:
–Hand-carved stone sinks are already starting to make a splash over classic porcelain, and there seems to be a renewed interest in polished brass faucets and knobs for bathroom fixtures. In the kitchen, you’ll see more two-toned cabinets (e.g., dark natural wood finishes atop stainless steel). Quartz will continue its rein over granite for countertops, and we expect to see the color blue in everything from cabinets to appliances.
–Expect to see home décor that plays up themes of travel, culture, and authenticity: Found art and upcycled books or magazines turned into folded works of art. Hand-drawn patterns on textiles, pillows, and wallpaper. And old, interesting, or eclectic accent pieces with an artisan edge, such as brass lamps, globally inspired throws and area rugs, and pillows with neutral, tribal patters. Don’t be surprised to see geometric patterns in accent walls and decor, or the use of metallics to anchor a room.
–Nautical themes will continue to cast a strong wave of influence. When it comes to coastal chic, it’s about way more than coral, weathered wood, and shells: Morrocan Fish Scales tiling from Mercury Mosaics create new possibilities in kitchens and bathrooms, while glass bubble lighting in blues and iridescent hues offer a playful approach to illumination.
–Color sets the tone for the furniture and décor we buy, so what’s in store for our walls in 2018? The latest Colormix Forecast from Sherwin-Williams dishes out three distinct interior/exterior paint palettes that capture collisions of influence from our modern lives. “Sincerity” offers a range of hushed tones, including sand, complex grays, and hazy botanicals, while “Unity” plays up global influences and bold pairings (think bright pops of peacock coloring). Bold is definitely back!
