I've been occupied with making digital design boards this week, that I forgot to post part three to the Home decorating trends in 2018!! Here it is....
It's time for part three to my mini blog series "Home decorating trends 2018". I came across a 20-item list on Pinterest of 2018's top decorating trends, and thought I'd share it with you. If you missed parts one and two, you can see them here:
Onward to #15-20......
15. Two-toned cabinets
Who says kitchen cabinets have to all be the same color? They don't. Generally though, the trend is making one portion or section of cabinetry one color, and another part, another color. Here is an example of two-toned cabinetry in a kitchen:
The island is left a dark natural wood tone, while the cabinetry was painted blue. It totally works. This is a great option for you if you'd like a pop of color in your cabinetry, but are kind of scared to have them ALL painted.
16. Brass fixtures
Brass is back, peeps! Don't get rid of your old brass fixtures just yet. I love the look of brass in the photo below, against the dark subway tile and cabinetry. Beautiful!
17. Concrete (table tops, walls, counters)
Concrete inside the house? Yep. It's popular, and in some cases I rather like it. I know nothing about how easy they are to clean, or maintain, but they can't be too high maintenance can they?
Here is another example of concrete inside the house.......the walls....
Now, I'm all about pink wall art....but I'm not sure how to feel about these pink pictures against a concrete wall. It looks......cold. Brrrrrrr. I feel like cuddling up to a good movie in this room would be a challenge.
18. Dark wood
Rich, dark wood finishes are beautiful! And, even though I paint furniture, there are certain pieces I won't touch, due to their beautiful rich wood finish! Here is a dark chocolate-y piece of furniture for you:
Dark wood floors have also been trending. They are simply gorgeous. And honestly, they'll never go out of style in my book:
19. 3D Wall Decor
Who knew wall decor could be 3D? Let's take a look.....
The next example is definitely beyond my wall decor skill-set. What do you think? Yay or nay? It makes me want to grab a smoothing tool and get to work pronto.
The next 3D wall art example is one we're more familiar with. These have made their way into many-a-crafters homes...
20. Retro Furniture
Retro furniture. You are either a retro lover, retro hater, or somewhere in between. I happen to be smack in the middle. A little retro goes a long way for me.
This chair is an example of retro style furniture. Unique shape, simple lines, and wood arms/legs. The patterned fabric gives it that extra retro boost.
This chair is fun and edgy, yet not too crazy that you get sick of it after 3 months. I'd add a piece like this to any room.
On the flip side, there is such a thing as retro overload; think Carol Brady's kitchen (If you're under 33, you may have to google it)
And there you have it!! The final six home decorating trends in 2018! Thoughts? Anything you loved, or didn't love? Which one will you try this year?
