One of the joys of owning a home is decorating it to keep up with current styles. Columbus GA realtors and designers are looking ahead to the top decorating trends of 2018 so they can help homebuyers put their own twist on these hot new trends:
- Velvet upholstery – While velvet is expected to be especially popular on statement sofas, it can be used in smaller doses as an accent fabric on pieces such as throw pillows or ottomans.
- Copper and brass – These trendy metals can show up on everything from bathroom and kitchen faucets to vases and wall art. Their warm tones are a departure from stainless steel’s cooler vibe.
- High contrast – Think black and white, or bright white paired with a deep, rich color like olive green. This trend will make the most dramatic statement in large areas, such as patterned flooring or deep-colored walls paired with white woodwork.
- Updated 1970’s style – “Groovy” patterns and warm colors will be tweaked to reflect modern sensibilities, while retaining a sense of nostalgia for the era.
- Natural materials – Homes will be imparted with a touch of nature thanks to accents of stone, shells, baskets and even antlers. Time to bring out your seashell collection and display those handmade baskets you’ve had in storage!
- Bold patterns – Whether geometric or floral, patterns will be large, dramatic and colorful. Circles are expected to be a popular theme, while floral patterns will update vintage designs with new colors and proportions.
- Lavender and lilac – These flower-based colors in muted, dusty hues will add a soft touch to home décor this year. Try them in a bedspread, upholstery or even on your walls for a soothing effect.
- Wabi sabi – In keeping with the trend toward nature, the Japanese philosophy of imperfection is making a comeback. Think casually rumpled bedding, not-quite-perfect handicrafts and mismatched dinnerware. Nothing is ever truly perfect, and this trend gives us even more reason to relax and enjoy ourselves at home!
