What is a design trend anyway? Believe it or not, even home decor trends are influenced by what is happening in popular culture, world events, and sociological mindsets. Each year I enjoy checking out what home design trends are being defined and considering how they are reflective of the world around us. Look through the list and feel free to comment on how you see design trends being reflective of society. Truth is, if you look hard enough, you can find a trend to support almost every idea; however, there are some clear winners when it comes to what's popular this year.
Some of the drivers behind last year’s trends (read the 2018 trends here) found their way back into the mix. For example, you can see the feminine influence still holding strong in 2019 with trends like curved furnishings, four poster beds, and patterned tile. One thing that is for sure is that people are tired of the same ole', same ole'. They want to add decor to their homes that invokes excitement and inspiration. Homeowners and design lovers want to do things just a little bit differently which is evidenced by the inclusion of mixed metals and bold wall colors.
With some magazines sharing over 40 different trends (40??), I picked five that I have observed and can get behind to support.
1. Mixed Metal Accents
2. Curved Furnishings with Softer Lines
3. Four Poster Beds
4. Bold Patterned Tiles
5. Bold Walls
Fun Furnishings and Metals
Bold Patterned Tiles I am LOVING!
P.S. I have no affiliation with these tile companies - just have affection for the patterns. In case it was not clear, I'm also a fan of teal!! From New York Cement Tile and Cement Tile Shop.
Bold Wall Colors
What is on everyone's radar right now when it comes to bold wall colors? Blacks, greens, and saturated gem tones.
