As an infinite source of inspiration, Pinterest has gained a dominant presence on the top interior design trends scene. Not only does it offer the most charming ideas for styling our homes, but it has also become a world-popular platform where new trends come to life.
Whether you’re a design pro or just a newbie, this year’s top interior design trends will win you over and turn your space into a trendy hub.
All things metallic
According to Pinterest, mixed metallics are one of the hottest trends for 2018. Introducing metal finishes to your space can help you give it a touch of glamour.
Iron, in particular, can be used with other metallic features thanks to its neutrality that can accentuate other finishes. Gold, rose gold, copper, brass, silver and bronze are also popular options that will complement your home’s colour scheme.
What’s even better is a multitude of possible ideas for your home. You can use metallics not only for hardware, but also for metallic-inspired artwork, wallpaper designs, textiles, etc.
The ceiling for a wow effect
The year 2018 and Pinterest have certainly laid emphasis on the ceiling, transforming it into a mesmerising focal point of a space. There are plenty of inspiring design possibilities for drawing the gaze upwards.
From conspicuous hues and lovely patterns to mesmerising wallpaper, rich textures and authentic architectural features, there will be more than a few reasons to look up in 2018.
Rugs as a statement
Just because we’ve started paying more attention to ceilings, it doesn’t mean that we’ve forgotten all about floors. And as Pinterest suggests, statement rugs have gained even more popularity, leading to a 236 percent increase in pins.
A truly stunning area rug can help you create a cohesive look in your home, tying a room together. With a statement rug, you can bring in a pop of colour, intricate patterns or even an entire interior style.
Furthermore, there’s no need for keeping this trend indoors because modern outdoor rugs are also under the spotlight. With a beautifully patterned or colourful rug, you can liven up your outdoor space and fill it with a positive vibe.
You can also go with a subtle, monochromatic design and let it’s texture take the centre stage, creating a feeling of cosiness in your outdoor sanctuary.
Plants: patterned, leafy and framed
Plants aren’t going anywhere; on the contrary, they are becoming more and more popular by the minute. Pinterest is actually bringing new and exciting plant trends that will elevate your home décor, introduce a sense of freshness and positivity to your space and even help you make a décor statement.
In 2018, big, leafy plants with intricate natural patterns will embellish homes around the world. However, another trend has come to the forefront – framed plants.
You can now introduce framed plants as beautiful wall decorations that will help you capture the spirit of the botanical design.
Sage as a hot new neutral
Neutral shades will never go out of style, providing your home with long-lasting appeal. What’s even more appealing about them is the fact that in spite of their neutrality and subtlety, they are certainly not boring.
You can always find a hot new neutral that will allow you to experiment with other shades, intricate designs and bold additions while also bringing a unique vibe to your space.
This year is focusing on sage, a fresh neutral that will help you introduce a sense of tranquillity and serenity and create an ambience of sophistication and elegance in your home.
Fringe under the spotlight
