2018 Decor Trends
January 05, 2018 in Uncategorized | no comments

A new year means there is a fresh set of trends you can expect to see in home decor and interior design. It is always fun to spot the trend as you shop, flip through magazines, or search the web for inspiration.  Here is our curated list of the top design and decor trends to try in 2018.

Color Trend: Purple

You can expect all shades of purple to reign supreme in 2018. From lavender to eggplant, purple hues are expected to be popular this year. Ultra Violet is Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year. As with any trend, you don’t have fully to commit to it. In fact, we encourage you to never be trendy or chase trends. Instead, you can subtly introduce the pop of color in accents like your throws or pillows. Here are some projects that we have included shades of purple.

Color Trend: Pretty Pinks

Blush tones will continue to be just as popular as they were in 2017, especially when paired with gold or brass tones. We love the hue as it looks soft, feminine, and lovely when paired with other neutrals. You can introduce the colors with rugs, textiles, or other accessories.

Statement Ceilings

Bring your eye up with a ceiling with decorative detailing. Whether it is coffered ceilings, exposed beams, or ceilings covered in wallpaper this trend can be interpreted to anyone’s tastes or style. That is why it is one of the trends at the top of our list!

Artisan Fixtures

Artisan made light fixtures will also be celebrated in 2018. Made by hand, artisan fixtures will give your home a true style statement and each will be unique to you. We love these artisan styles made from beads, iron, and shells.

Velvet Fabrics

Velvet fabrics are also going to have quite the moment in 2018. Noted by many trend forecasters as the “it” fiber of the year, velvet introduces texture, depth and luxury into a space. Velvet comes in a variety of styles and colors, most notably new poly-blends that make the luxurious fabric more family friendly. It is an everyday luxury everyone can incorporate.

The goal is never to be too trendy, but these decor trends are classic and subtle enough to give your home a update that is still classic and timeless. If you want help incorporating any of these trends, email us at or call as at 512-342-6899.
