The new year is almost here, and that means new design trends in interiors are on the horizon. 2017 was a year filled with shades of green and marble overlays, but 2018 has more in store. With new colors, patterns and designs, it will be a forward-focused year.
1. Modern Color Palettes
Color palettes that snuck into the last stretch of 2017 will pop up frequently in the new year. You can expect to see woodsy and warm neutrals that create an inviting atmosphere in 2018. Neutrals will be complemented with gold and green accents. Oranges, reds and yellows will make their mark as well.
2. It’s All About Patterns
A natural evolution from texture is patterns. This year was all about textures, but 2018 will offer a new way to liven up neutrals when patterns provide a balance of pop without being too busy. Accent colors paired with a hint of patterns boast the perfect combination of cozy and modern ambience.
3. Bringing it Back to Nature
Tying nature into design is going to continue to be a trend leader. Studies have shown that bringing nature indoors provokes feelings of happiness and peace. Forest green accents, living plants and woodsy overlays will continue to be very popular in 2018. Check out our blog Natural Connection: The Return of Bringing Nature Indoors to read more about this trend.
4. Redesigning the Workplace
In the past years, office spaces have leaned toward an open concept. Although some open spaces are still appreciated in the workplace, you will be seeing more closed-in collaborative spaces in 2018. We’ve all finally realized how difficult it can be to have a phone call when a others are in the room around you! However, the spaces will be a far cry from a return to cubicles. We’ll see a happy medium next year between open spaces for brainstorming sessions and places to retreat to when autonomous work needs to get done.
5. Less is More in Commercial Design
The word minimalism has been widespread over the last year. Minimalism ran through residential spaces, and is making a strong mark on commercial design. We expect minimalistic style will be seen in salons, hotels, and retail stores — just about everywhere in 2018. Take a look at our blog on Mighty Minimalism to read about this trend in retail design.
We’re excited to see what other trends 2018 will bring to the table. Our blog will be filled with trending topics throughout the new year, so be sure to keep up with our posts.
