Spring is upon us and 2018 is shaping up to be a year full of new interior design trends. From colors to metallics, natural surfaces to artisanal goods, we have all the latest trends that are sure to make 2018 an unforgettable year.
Gone are the days of using the color grey as a staple. I expect to see bold, saturated colors in vivid hues of blues, greens and reds. Along with bold color, the use of oversized florals is on the rise in fabrics and wallpaper. Below is a photo of my design that was featured on Curated Kravet.

There will be more use of natural wood surfaces replacing the painted surfaces we have seen so much of the last few years. Natural wood surfaces will add warmth for furnishings, cabinets, floors, doors, windows, and walls.

Curves are in. People are moving away from the straight edged forms of midcentury furnishings and embracing furnishings with soft, feminine curves. We are seeing softer lines, curves, ruffles, and ruching. The trend embraces a softer focus and gives a gentle nod to refinement and elegance.

Expect to see metallics in wallpaper, accessories and as an accent on furnishings. Black walls play well with metallics. Blacks are back in a big way. Black is the new neutral. Black is timeless and can be paired with metallics and bold pops of color.

In this technological age, we are placing value on artisanal goods. Consumers are craving uniqueness through customization and the appearance of the unexpected. Artisans are crafting pieces with striking attention to detail. Experimentation with materials, especially those grounded in nature, result in cutting edge design.

We love the idea of incorporating some of these trends with classic, traditional items and schemes. What do you think of these trends? Do you think any are here to stay?
