Some trends are fleeting, like last year’s metallic madness, and others linger for ages, like grey paint. This year’s home and kitchen trends celebrate nature with rich colors, earthy elements, and homemade additions.
Take a look at the five trends we expect to see dominating this spring and summer.
- Tropical And Botanical Prints
We watched nautical win theme of the year as it appeared in more and more bathrooms than we could count. Now, we’re seeing the stripes and anchors disperse as tropical and botanical prints steal the show.
From palm patterns to pineapples galore, this warm-weather theme is best balanced with chic elements, like gold hardware and all white furniture, to create the ultimate escape that’s not overdone.
While this trend is winning in bathrooms, it’s also one of the kitchen trends we can’t get enough of. Tropical and botanical prints are also popping up on plates and window treatments, bringing a splash of the tropics into the heart of the home.
- Shaker Cabinetry
We are pleased to welcome the fresh and classic look of Shaker Cabinetry in all homes this year. Shaker cabinets are one of those kitchen trends that have been able to stand the test of time, and this year they are standing stronger than ever.
Offering a clean, simplistic style that still demands attention, Shaker Cabinetry is a timeless choice that complements both traditional and modern designs.
- Vibrant Paint Colors
While neutrals like grey are still thriving, we are predicting that color takes the lead for paint colors this year. 2018’s Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra Violet and a good indication that we are leaning towards lively, vibrant shades for now.
Rich hues like violet, navy and emerald green are going to be the paint colors of choice, and can look gorgeous in any room. Dive into deep shades and give your walls a coat of excitement.
- From The World, With Love
Inspiration from lands near and far are being brought home this year. From the furniture we sit on to the carpets we walk on, adding some international flair to your home design is trending up.
Follow the well-traveled path by importing some beauty into your home design or décor. Not sure where to start? Take inspiration from your own travels or feature a culture you’ve loved from a distance. While you don’t have to have a personal connection to incorporate global-inspired elements in your home, having a story behind a piece of furniture or décor is always alluring.
- Outdoor Voices
Earthy interiors are connecting us with nature, even behind closed doors. We’re seeing a greater preference towards houseplants on our countertops, and indoor vines draping our shelves. This ode to the outdoors can come in many different forms, like homemade ceramics for serving dinner, natural stone countertops, or terracotta tiles.
The important thing to remember with any trend is it is yours to make your own. Adding new elements to your home can be exciting and refreshing when planned right and executed properly. Will you be trying one of these 2018 trends come spring or summer?
