6 Interior Trends That Will Be Huge in 2018


Any interior design aficionado sees their home as a blank canvas waiting to be decorated. All those inspiring looks, authentic styles and enchanting details inspire creativity and experimentation, offering a world of creative possibilities. And the year 2018 has brought stunning décor trends that will embellish homes and transform them into true works of art.

1. Dark wood

While the previous years embraced soft, blonde tones of wood, especially in Scandinavian-inspired homes, this year has brought a dramatic, but stylish shift to dark wood. The deep, soothing hues of dark wood will be seen in homes all around the world. In combination with other earthy tones, this trend will create a rich, natural look in your space. The possibilities for implementing dark wood, such as walnut, rosewood and mango wood, are numerous. Whether you use it for your hardwood floors, an accent wall or furniture, it will definitely add richness to your space. 

2. Wallpapers

Having made a comeback in 2018, wallpapers will definitely be one of the biggest trends this year. They are a simple yet stylish way to elevate your home décor, create an enticing design statement and introduce a sense of novelty to your space. Implementing wallpapers with bold patterns, one of the hottest trends for 2018, will give character to your home and allow you to express your personality. From geometric patterns to floral motifs, you can choose a design that fits into the general style of your home. 

3. Wabi-sabi

The unique style of Wabi-sabi is for those who enjoy all things imperfect and unique. This is a style that embraces imperfection, flaws and aged beauty that reflect the natural flow of time and transience. Since Wabi-sabi is based on a Japanese philosophy, welcoming it into your home will help you create an ambiance of tranquillity and serenity. For a Wabi-sabi-inspired look, you should embrace layers of texture, wrinkled materials, handcrafted items, naturally flawed pieces and soothing colours that will give your home a lived-in vibe. Finding beauty in imperfection is the main principle of Wabi-sabi, so keep your eyes open for hidden gems. 

4. Subtle monochromaticity 

For those who love simple yet elegant and enticing designs, monochromatic patterns will be the perfect choice. By introducing monochromatic designs to your space through authentic artwork, textured round rugs and accent details, such as throw pillows and covers, you’ll be able to reduce visual clutter in your home and create a harmonious feel. Patterns linked by colour or design will give your home a cohesive look while also elevating its décor. Monochromatic designs will truly stand out if set against an understated backdrop. 

5. Statement ceilings

Ceilings are no longer overlooked as insignificant elements in homes. Instead, they are yet another opportunity for experimentation through design and, in 2018, ceilings will be used as stunning décor statements. You can paint your ceiling in another hue to simply accentuate it or go with a bolder design and implement different shapes and motifs. You can also use wallpaper for your ceilings and create the wow effect. You can set it against a plain floor design or link them through patterns for a truly mesmerizing look. 

6. Organic design

Giving your home an organic flair will fill it with positivity and soothing natural energy. Nature-inspired designs will be one of the most popular trends in 2018 as more and more people want to slow down their hectic lifestyles and embrace peacefulness. You have so many options when it comes to natural design. You should go with a colour scheme of subtle earthy tones in combination with rich natural materials. Handcrafted items that exude rustic beauty will be a perfect embellishment.
Plants and living walls will also help you create an organic, natural look. However, you should focus on huge, leafy plants with beautiful patterns instead of tiny succulents that are a thing of 2017. You can also decorate your space with vases of flowers that will create an atmosphere of freshness in your home. Not only will these elements elevate the style of your home, but they will also help you create a healthy, peaceful environment.

Décor trends for 2018 are diverse, playful and unique and can work perfectly with different styles. From organic and natural to bold and authentic, these trends will mark the year 2018.
