Interior Design Trends for 2018. What’s in, and now out.

As an Interior Designer, I have my own design conceit—and I do not follow trends. I may incorporate things I like and see into my own vocabulary. 

With that in mind, I put together a quick list of what has been done and what to look foward to in 2018.  My advice;  pick and choose what resonates with you and your home.

It is projected that people will gravitate toward more natural, earthy vibes in grey, tan and browns and that a Scandinavian aesthetic will prevail.  I am also seeing Mid-Century Modern being replaced by Neoclassic traditional, and antiques are updated and mixed in with clean line furnishings.  
Styles you will be seeing in greater prominence this year;

High gloss painted walls and or ceilings
Curved sofas and softer edge furnishings 
Bold wallpaper
Lavender and lilac color
Darker browns, neutrals in furnishings & fabrics paired with jewel tones
Circle patterns
Natural elements that reflects the geography of the home
Colorful trim and casings
Colorful doors-entry and interior

Bold floral fabric patterns 
Mixing metal finishes-no more matching
Patterned live plants
Terrazzo flooring

Spa inspired bathrooms
Large art pieces on the wall

Darker hues on walls-moodier palettes

Every home has its own architecture which will inform that home’s interior vocabulary and every homeowner has their own personality which also informs the interior of a home.
Interior design trends are like fashion for your home, not everything will become part of your style but it is nice to have new ideas to choose from. It keeps things exciting don’t you think?
