Shining a Light on Interior Design Trends for 2019
2019 is up and running, and so am I! A new year always means a new outlook, so I have set my sights on what will be BIG this year in design. Spotting design trends is one way I can provide a “WOW” factor in all my projects. I am constantly searching for the perfect furniture, fabrics, and accessories that will keep my designs fresh, contemporary and spectacular. So, I visit many markets all over the US, where I attend seminars on all the trends and forecasts for interior design. I am so excited to share some design trend take-aways from my 2018 year-long travels.
Smooth Elegance with Black and Gold
Black has always been on trend in the clothing market, but I’m seeing it emerge boldly in interiors, usually paired with gold. Dark, moody walls paired with statement pieces trimmed with gold hardware bring an elegant modernity to spaces. Black is always edgy, yet stately, and can often serve to anchor the design of any room. Even though this is a trend, I do feel that black and gold will withstand time.
Traditional design is becoming Clean Lined, streamlining to a minimal/modern feel I call Transitional Design. This twist on the traditional offers less ornamentation and more classic styles and shapes. You will be seeing classic, nostalgic pieces paired with modern rugs, art or lighting that breathes fresh air into a room.
Farmhouse will continue to trend in 2019, but it will have a modern twist as well. It will still be comfortable, but less will be more with this trend. You’ll see sliding found doors, gray paint, metal furniture pieces, florals in both artificial and real. Farmhouse is like denim; it just gets better with wear and time.
Patterns on Trend
Florals will be showing up in everything from wallpaper to upholstery fabric and art. Geometric patterns will also be strong because of the turn toward a modern trend I see in every interior design aspect. Patterns can make a bold statement in a room or add just a touch to give it an updated feel.
Florals on a dark wall create a dramatic design.
I am excited about all the possibilities 2019 brings to the design table! A more modern feel with clean lines and a minimalist look is clearly trending in all design styles. And, the mix of metals seems to be holding steady through 2020 and maybe beyond. I hope this trend talk has inspired you to add fresh, modern design elements to your home.
