When it comes to home design, 2018 has been right on point. With spring and summer behind us, and temperatures taking a plunge, it’s time to cuddle by the fireplace and take a look at the six home trends to embrace this fall and winter.
A warm welcome. While mixed metals are still all the rage (including gold, silver and bronze), the warm red sheen of copper makes it the ultimate metallic for fall and winter, especially when paired with black kitchen cabinets. From cabinet hardware and copper kitchen sinks, to appliances and light fixtures, add a trendy touch of copper to your room design.
Go big at home. Make a statement this fall and winter by incorporating a bold print in every room of your home, on area rugs, wallpaper, table linens, drapes, throw pillows, and comforters. Perfect patterns for the colder months include buffalo check, Ikat, large polka dots, abstract geometric shapes, and wide stripes. Or install a tile backsplash in an arabesque or herringbone pattern.
Everything old is new again. The Modern Farmhouse movement has ushered in a resurgence of vintage and industrial accents, such as Edison bulbs, unfinished wood furniture with gorgeous grain, caned chairs, exposed beams, galvanized steel and wrought iron decorative elements, and lush upholstered furniture with nail head trim.
Mad for marble. If you want to impress the neighbors at your holiday Open House or New Year’s Eve bash, marble is a dramatic and elegant choice for the home. Iconic gray swirls and veins highlight the natural beauty of marble flooring, or a marble tile backlash. Or opt for a Quartzite countertop that mimics the appearance of marble, but will not etch while preparing Thanksgiving dinner for your guests.
Embrace the dark side. Pastels are oh so light and airy, but come fall and winter when days grow shorter, deep jewel tones take center stage. In home magazines and on our favorite HGTV shows, designers are leaning towards dark hues for walls, like amethyst, sapphire, onyx, garnet, emerald or charcoal gray, in contemporary and transitional interiors. Other options include black trim and black kitchen cabinets.
The World is your oyster. Whether you did a bit of traveling this year or just had a relaxing stay-cation, global influences are right on trend. From framed maps and postcards to geode bookends on the shelves of your home office cabinetry, showcase the places you love or would love to visit.
