These Interior Design Trends Will Rule in 2019

January 2, 2019

What can you expect to see in the trendiest homes in Smiths AL this year? Comfort will be a major theme, along with visually interesting decor and a move away from mass-produced home goods.

Here are 7 design elements that are hot for 2019:

Comforting Colors

Look for soothing warm tones such as creams, soft beiges, peach and light-colored natural wood. Think soft and warm, like a puppy or a hug. At the other end of the spectrum, deep blue and green shades create a “hideaway” feel in the home retreat.

Curvy Furniture

Echoing the “hug” theme, semicircular sectionals and chair backs embrace people as they nestle into the furniture. Curved arms on sofas promote an informal, cozy vibe in the family room.

Velvet Upholstery

Fuzzy velvet creates warmth and emphasizes the comforting mood of upholstered pieces. Bold colors add drama and stand out against neutral walls.

Black Kitchens and Baths

Black kitchen cabinets and bathrooms are hot right now. In the kitchen, keep walls and floors light to contrast with dark cabinets. Bathrooms are more likely to go all in with black tile, fixtures and cabinets.


This timeless material is not just for floors anymore. We’ll see it in unusual places like kitchen backsplashes, shower walls and tabletops. Terrazzo is durable and visually exciting with its multi-hued chips of stone or glass embedded in resin or cement. New patterns and colors update it for today’s tastes.

Patterned Tile

Designers are using more colors, bolder patterns and contrasting grout to make tile the focus of a room. Patterns can be mixed and matched for even more drama on walls and floors.

Handcrafted Décor

Craftsmanship is on trend for 2019. It will show up in one-of-a-kind wood slab furniture, hand-forged metal hardware, handwoven textiles, natural stone elements and even basketry.
