2018 Home Décor Trends

I must admit our family is not keen on following trends. It can almost become a full time job keeping up with new designs and décor. By the time you renovate a room to suit the newest style, another one has already come along.

Even so, it’s good to be in the know of what you can expect to see more of this year. If you plan to renovate or update your home, here are some of the top trends to look out for:


  1. Shapely furniture

Couches are going back to curvier shapes that enhance comfort and color. Feel-good furniture that offers softer shapes, larger sizes, cozy textures and are padded for maximum comfort will elevate the sanctuary feel many are going for this year.


  1. Environmental feel

Going natural is a relevant interior trend that is making headway with environmental colors like emerald, olive and sage. We’ll also see more natural looks like stone, wood and other earthy materials. These include wood end tables, storage units, kitchen accessories and more.


  1. Wabi-Sabi

 Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and embracing authenticity. Here we will see more handmade, hand painted items that include rough edging and finishing. If you consider tables with burn marks, pre-wrinkled linen sheets and wood furniture with uneven grains this is imperfected look we’re referring to. The result is a personal, natural and organic esthetic.


  1. Brass is coming back

If your home was built in the 80’s or 90’s and is still finished with brass handles, faucets, fixtures and mirrors you may wish to keep some around a little longer as brass is making its comeback. Brass won’t necessarily be seen as a running theme in a home, however will be treated like an accessory.


  1. Rich tones

We’re still seeing neutral light gray leading colour designs, however richer, darker tones are starting to regain momentum. They are being set for specific use, alongside neutral tones of white, grey or cream, creating a strong yet calm and gentle look.


The key to your décor is to stick with what you love whether it’s the ‘in thing’ or not. You always want your home to be a reflection of what you value most. And, if you or anyone you know has considered buying or selling a home, give us a call. It’d be our highest honour to serve you!
