2019 Interior Design Trends

The days of light grey walls are behind us according to Forbes and Real Simple. Here’s a quick glance at the design year ahead:

Bathrooms become focal points. Dramatic mirrors, textured wallpaper, and rich colored finishes embolden these once second-thought spaces.
Homeowners want natural elements. Paint trend is moving away from grey and closer to colors like sand and mushroom. Like nature, neutral color palettes are accented with pops of bright color. Living Coral, Pantone’s 2018 color of the year, is accented with shades of green in names like Mint and Sage.
Accent pieces and accessories go bold. So do homeowners. People are foregoing past contemporary design staples like stainless steel appliances for pop-art colored appliances that reflect their personality and the room’s.
Home sizes are smaller. Use of space is blowing up. Open cabinets and kitchen shelves continue to rise in popularity. It’s not uncommon to find a corner turned into a clever reading nook or a closet under stairs turned into a play area.
High-rise rentals create “luxury hotel” experiences with attractive common areas. Where else would they host free hors d’oeuvres after work, monthly wine tastings, and unique community interaction experiences?
Plants, both the real things and plant prints for walls and accent pieces, are almost as trendy as pets.
