Design Trends to Look For in 2018

2018 is finally here! While you work to achieve your New Year’s resolutions, consider trying out one of these new trends in the home decor department. From new color trends to converted spaces, you’ll love the latest design ideas and predictions for 2018.


Deeper Colors

The Pantone Color Institute has spoken and the color of the year is ultra violet. Gone are the days of millennial pink, it seems. This color was chosen for its intriguing qualities. Aside from Pantone’s announcement of the new color of the year, other deep hues are expected to make a splash through accent pieces as well this year. Consider buying a bold, hunter green couch or adding a crimson rug to your living room. The options are endless.

Millwork Feature Walls

According to Houzz , millwork walls are set to make a comeback. This elegant design trend will certainly add an interesting accent to any room. It is especially expected to be used as a feature wall in bedrooms this year.

Spa Inspired

Spa-inspired Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Spiralling from the minimalism trend that dominated much of the past few years, this year many people will start embracing the relaxed, uncluttered atmosphere of a spa in their bathrooms and bedrooms. You can achieve this ambiance by adding a few plants, potpourri, pebbles and simple, clean furniture to a space. White tiles and wicker baskets can also help you to achieve this look.  

Converted Space

Converted Spaces

Converted spaces are becoming more and more popular in 2018 as people move away from traditional uses of rooms like the formal dining room. Convert an unused space into a library, at-home movie theater, game room or yoga studio. This trend will help to maximize the space in your home or apartment.

I purchased a large area rug about 1 year ago a 10×15. It’s beautiful but I have it on top of my living room wall to wall carpet and the rug slips constantly and there are large areas the bubble up and I haven’t found any way to straighten them out. I have turned the carpet inside out and rolled it up backwards, I have used a steamer on the top and bottom side to relax the fibers. Nothing has worked and it looks unsightly and is a tripping hazard. Can someone help with this dilemma?

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
