Natural Wood Accents
2018 decor trends push towards a more eclectic style. That means not too much of the matchy-matchy coordinated colors and textures we’ve seen in years past. Mixing multiple finishes gives a warmth and coziness that is perfect for kids rooms, after all kids love to go overboard on style! Try mixing natural wood accents with prints, paint and plenty of texture. How about this awesome handmade toybox from Nobobobo?
Although white on white is out, monochrome is going strong. I love it because I’m a big fan of gender neutral rooms and there are so many adorable monochrome designs available online. This nursery set from Pottery Barn Kids is just the ticket to a cute black and white room.
Whether it’s in quilts, drapes or on the walls, 2018 is all about bold flowery prints. And if you want to go crazy, how about this floral/snacks wallpaper? I need to find a spot for it in my home… so much fun!
Brass & Mixed Metals
Brass took the place of rose gold last year and it’s here to stay. Whether it be handles, light fittings or mirror frames, brass can bring warmth to any room. Remeber to not overdo it though, and don’t be shy about mixing brass with other metals. This bunny lamp is whimsical and totally trending!
Artisan Crafts & Woven Textures
We’re still loving it crafty and 2018 decor trends include all things woven. Bring a little texture into your home with natural wicker, rattan, seagrass and anything woven. Use woven vessels for toys, plants and laundry… how about these sleepy-eyed baskets?
A few months ago I posted a selection of fab ideas for feature ceilings for kids rooms and this is going to be big in 2018. It’s a pretty daring move but kids’ rooms are the perfect place to give it a trial run. This room is one of my favorites featured on the blog last year, it’s just gorgeous and bang on trend for this coming year. And if you just have to have this monochrome wallpaper it can be found here on Etsy.
Geometric and circular designs are hot for 2018 bringing some pattern into your kids’ spaces with lots of new designs for cushions, wallpapers, bedding and more. How about this bold spotted wallpaper?
Jewel Tones & Velvet
They were hot last year and they’re still going strong, deep purples, peacock green, burgundy, and navy. These colors work beautifully with velvet, another 2018 decor trend you’ll want to get involved with. This gorgeous green pillow could be the perfect finishing touch to a boldly colored eclectic room:
Dark Painted Furniture
The all-white kitchen is out, and you’ll see cabinets painted with shades of blue, deep grey and even purple. Similarly, internal doors have been heading darker, and all white furniture is becoming less popular. When looking for pieces like chairs and dressers, try a darker shade like this one from Land of Nod:
Plenty of Wall Art
As the minimalist, bare aesthetic is replaced with a busier eclectic fashion it’s all about the wall art. Gallery walls, mixed frames, wall hangings… pretty much anything but bare walls. There is so much awesome artwork to choose from but I love these abstract fruit prints from Little Design Haus:
I’m pumped to incorporate some of these ideas in this year’s projects, I’m particularly excited to see a little more natural finishes and bold prints. I might even have to break the seal on wallpapering! Which is your favorite of the 2018 decor trends?
