The Decorating Trends You Should Expect In 2018
The Home Design Co. interviewed top interior designers to see which decorating trends they plan to leave in 2017 and what they are excited to utilize going into the new year. Ultimately, the most important part of interior design is being true to your personal style. Current trends may introduce you to styles you didn’t know about, and maybe you’ll love them. But unless they make you happy, there’s really no point to being on-trend. Let’s take a look at what the experts are saying is in and what’s out for 2018. Do you agree?
Say goodbye to reclaimed wood, and hello to curved furniture
Okay, not really goodbye. The rustic look isn’t going anywhere and neither is reclaimed wood. But it’s been overdone a bit in recent years so it may be time to scale back and focus on intentional pieces.
Making a comeback is soft fabrics and curved edges. Vintage style furniture is in with velvet fabrics in saturated colors and furniture pieces with curved, instead of hard, edges.

Replace faux industrial with authenticity
The industrial look is still in the fast lane when it comes to interior design. Hunt for quality pieces that serve a purpose, they will feel more authentic.

Consider darker colors for the kitchen instead of white-on-white
Everyone loves the crisp and clean look of an all white kitchen. But designers and homeowners are becoming braver with colors and introducing them to the kitchen. The most popular color choices are black, dark grey, and navy blue. Mix with lighter shades or natural wood for a balanced look.

Matte black finishes will dominate over brushed brass
All of the top manufacturers of lighting and kitchen/bathroom fixtures are introducing matte black product lines. If solid black is not your style, you can’t go wrong with bronze.

Focus on your personality and not just what is trendy
Pick something that you love, your favorite color or an art piece, and design your space around that. If your home is personalized to what you really like, it will be timeless instead of trendy.
