Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets
Two-toned kitchen cabinets have been growing in popularity, but the trend has evolved by incorporating bleached wood with a vibrant paint color as shown in this modern farmhouse kitchen by Blakes London.
Moody Interior Paint Colors
One of our favorite interior paint colors of the year is called Black Flame — a beautiful blend of navy and black that puts the spotlight on décor just like white walls. Hence, gorgeous example is this space we cannot stop looking at on The Interiors Edit. To keep a room from feeling too moody, we suggest using the color in sun-drenched areas.
Fringe trim is a flirty touch typically reserved for blankets, pillows, and rugs. But now the fringy goodness does not end there. You can expect furniture, light fixtures, and even mirrors as shown in this lovely entryway by Studio Lifestyle, to be sporting decorative fringe or sculptural fibers.
Geometric accents are getting bolder and more colorful. For the adventuresome, one of our favorite ways to add geometry to a home is with a chromatic accent wall as shown in this splashy living room by Emily Lister Interiors.
Warm Color Schemes
Minimalism still rules. But to make spaces like these feel more inviting cool color schemes are being edged out by earthy brown hues as shown in this Paris apartment decorated by Marion Alberge.
Adding a big dose of color to a cooking space is the next big thing when it comes to giving neutral kitchens a more personal twist. Thus, in this granny flat designed by Vidal Design Collaborative, a lavender kitchen island spices things up.
Updating a room with velvet furniture is an elegant way to transition your décor to 2018. This living room by Domus Nova gets it right with velvet sofas in two of the year’s favorite hues: purple and fuschia.
A stunning for instance is this soapstone sink in a kitchen designed by JAS Design Build. No worries about cleaning because soapstone stands up to most household cleaners.
Using wallpaper to create a feature wall is not a new thing, but now people are expressing their individuality at home by wallpapering their ceilings. Our favorite example is this New York City micro apartment featured on 6sqft.
The modern farmhouse trend is driving the craving for vintage lighting. But we are not talking about Edison bulbs. These days old-timey copper pendants are in demand particularly in places where task lighting is needed like over this kitchen island by Blakes London.
Trough sinks are becoming a must in spaces where bigger basins make getting things clean more manageable in shared bathrooms or laundry rooms. Case in point, this family style washroom by Godrich Interiors.
There are more ways concrete will be popping up in homes in the form of decorative features from DIY countertops to stone-like furniture. In this living room spotted on Fantastic Frank, a concrete top coffee table adds cool, industrial style.
Move over white subway tile because monochromatic backsplashes will be getting more intricate with bold, geometric patterns. In this kitchen we caught a glimpse of on ACME RE, black, triangle-shaped tiles turn a backsplash into an eye-popping feature wall.
Bedrooms will be meant for sleeping and not for watching Netflix or falling into the social media rabbit hole. To make the place where you rest more relaxing stick to a minimalist-themed space in neutral colors as shown in this bedroom by interior designer Marion AlBerge. To get you into the sleep zone faster, top off your bed with luxuriously soft sheets and extra cozy knitted blankets.
And speaking of wood, technology overload may be driving you to crave more natural elements throughout your home. If that is the case, consider surrounding yourself with wooden pieces that are both pragmatic and stylish like these rugged bar stools and live edge wood countertop shown in this kitchen by The Novogratz.
Sun Bleached Wood
The weathered gray wood trend is officially dead. These days sun-bleached wood in soothing brown tones is quickly becoming the overall favorite. Here, sun-bleached wood cabinets bring warmth and texture to this living room seen on IKEA Ideas.
