The new year is a time to reflect back on the year, and look forward to what’s to come in the months ahead. To make sure your space is up to date and continues to inspire well into the future, we look at the top four interior design trends for the new year.
Making the most of a single hue, monochromatic textures and patterns are a key interior design trend for the next year, moving from statement pieces in public spaces into the comforts of home. Within a unified colour scheme, playing with patterns on different elements in the room can create more dimension and visual interest. Similarly, while sticking with a single shade, contrasting graphic forms can work together to create a compelling and consistent narrative.
It’s not just for sidewalks anymore. Taking the urban industrial look to new spaces and new applications, concrete becomes a strong accent throughout the home. While concrete sinks and bathrooms have been in vogue for a while, the raw concrete looks to become more pervasive in 2018, extending to furniture, accessories, countertops, flooring and even wallcoverings. Far from cold, concrete is hotter than ever. And you can bring the look to the surface with Caesarstone colours like 4003 Sleek Concrete.
This isn’t your grandma’s floral print. Outgrowing its old reputation, the flower has more power than ever, with botanical-inspired prints being used in big, bold, new ways. For stylish interiors in 2018, think oversized blooms and high-contrast hues like black and white or teal and gold. It’s a modern bloom with a bit of boom.
Let There Be Vintage Light
Don’t call it a comeback. They’ve been here for years. Vintage lighting fixtures are now bigger than ever. Today’s homeowners and interior designers are increasingly using vintage-style fixtures like these large pendant lights, creating a strong visual focus and serving as a functional conversation piece in kitchens and living rooms.
Pantone recently announced their Color of the Year for 2018. An enigmatic blue-based purple, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet conveys originality, mystery and visionary thinking. To bring it to the surface, check out 8551 Amethyst, with rich purple and violet tones coming alive in its semi-precious stones.
