New year, new look for your home! We’re looking at the most innovative home design trends for 2019 in order to show how simple it can be to incorporate them into your own space. Here are some of our favorite interior design trends and how you can breathe new life into your current spaces.
Bold and patterned back-splashes
While 2018 was a minimalist year for interior design, 2019 will signify a move toward more vibrant kitchen looks. Bold and patterned back-splashes can add some life back into your kitchen with bright colors and graphic tiles. Try using a cool blue, gray or even geometric-patterned tile in your kitchen.
Sustainable and natural elements
Furniture and decor pieces made from materials like jute, rice paper, reclaimed wood, and recycled granite, and clay are wonderful items to include in your space, as they are made responsibly, with nature in mind. Incorporating plants into your home design will also add a fresh and serene ambiance to your space.
Velvet is soft, cozy, and luxurious with a fresh and funky twist. Velvet sofas in particular have become trendy among furniture designers and will continue to be a hit in 2019. Adding velvet furniture in jewel-toned designs is a great way to incorporate the trend into your space without giving your home an overly retro feel.
Richer color palettes
Jewel tones and dark, warm color palettes are trendy for 2019. Incorporate rich textures and colors into your home to bring your minimalist furnishings into the new year with a twist on simple tradition.
Mixing and matching furniture, metals
Another way to take give your current home design a fresh look for 2019 is by mixing and matching furniture and metals. Rather than keeping uniform furniture sets in the same room, mix it up a bit. Try styling your spaces in different ways, incorporating various furniture styles together to give your home a fresh and cozy look. Additionally, mixing metals is another way to modernize your space for the new year. Try incorporating silver, gold, and copper together, and feel free to mix up your home design without the pressure for everything to match.
Geometric and tribal patterns
Over-sized, bold geometric patterns and tribal styles are big trends for this new year in home design. Be expressive in your home design by incorporating patterns that you love that breathe life into your space. If you don’t want to purchase trendy new furniture items to achieve this look, you can offset the minimalist look of your home by adding patterned textiles and decor elements to your home.
If you live in a small home or an urban area, convertible dwellings will be a big trend to incorporate in your home design in the new year. Murphy beds, expandable tables, and multi-functional furnishings are practical and intriguing elements to include in your home design, as they are equally useful and interesting to guests.
Gone are the days of a plain ceiling. Now, your home design can go beyond tired accent walls and throw pillows and move toward an innovative ceiling design. Add an inspirational tone to your home with a fresh take on the accent wall by creating a statement ceiling, either with a patterned wallpaper or a splash of color, paying homage to the ornately designed ceilings of the 1920’s.
You don’t have to move to create a fresh look for the new year! Find a trend that works for you and make it work in a space you’re already comfortable in.
