Thinking of buying a home in 2018 and want to make sure it’s as fashionable as possible as soon as you move in? Here, Zillow offers a sneak peek at some exciting new trends that are sure to inspire.
1. Charcoal and honey
Deep, dark walls painted in rich charcoal and matte black and accented by lush honey tones and cream accents can create a dramatic look. On a smaller scale, try using furnishings and decor items with glossy black elements, along with golden hardware and textiles.
2. Flouncy florals
Heavily saturated, big-blossomed flourishes with lots of contrast are everywhere—from draperies and wallcoverings to club chairs and pillows. Want to make a bold statement? Consider a sofa with a colorful floral print on a dark background, or even a large art piece. For a more modest look, try incorporating smaller items such as a vase or throw pillow.
3. Vibrant colors
Expect to see lots of heavily textured pieces with vibrant gemstone colors. Think fuchsia velvet ottomans, multitoned boucle fabric on accent chairs and rich emerald-green tufted sofas. Deep teal also is a shade you’ll be seeing more. Consider painting a single statement credenza this hue, and make it pop with hammered brass hardware. Or paint your entire living room this rich color, and mix in shades of green and fuchsia.
4. Blushing twilight
The high-contrast, sophisticated combination of navy blue and a soft blush pink is easy to pull off and surprisingly timeless. Imagine a soft pale-pink rug paired with artwork boasting rich navy accents and mixed metals and cream accents to finish off the aesthetic.
5. Marvelous marbling
One of the most prominent trends is the use of marbling patterns in chairs, pillows and art. You might even want to take a class on how to create this striking effect.
