I love Pinterest just as much as the next girl, so when they drop an article like Predicting 2018 Home Trends I'm all over it. As of late, I have been looking around my home and feeling the need to change a few things. With that being said I've needed to go to the source of my inspiration...Pinterest. Let's dive deep into a few of the articles suggestions for homes in 2018:
I wish right?! I'm totally in LOVE with rain showers and wet baths. When I was a kid I used to dream of having a huge bathroom with a large clawfoot tub in the middle. With one entire wall a window overlooking the fields of trees, I guess I was planning on living in the forest. My how times have changed, here I am dreaming of a city skyline! If I had a space big enough I would be all over the bathroom trend for this year. As for now, I'll settle with the clean look and natural accents.
Since the dawn of time, ceilings have always been the real MVP. From Russia's Church of the Savior, Spilled Blood to the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. Ceilings were used to tell stories of old or display the most beautiful art. Although we may never have anything that extravagant in our houses, I think there is a lot we can learn from this idea. Pulling the history from different textiles, weathered/refurbished wood, maybe even gorgeous metals. Every element has a history of it's own, a story that can add to the beauty of our home.
Large Wall Art
ALL OF THE YES! I love large wall art, and it's so cool to find. I think this type of art takes a room from average to prestigious. It's really up there with a statement ceiling in my opinion. A fun spin: place a large gallery photo in your bathroom! The gallery look has always been so chic and effortless, I say go for it in 2018!
Floors, ceilings, tile, herringbone is a timeless pattern that can be brought from floor to ceiling. I think of Genevieve Gorder's Home Renovation (if you haven't watched it... do yourself a favor and clear your evening for a little Netflix and chill). It's such versatile pattern. I've seen it in elegance, country chic, and modern homes. Each home looked so diverse, but all carried the pattern so well. It's a matter of finding what works for you and going for it. My favorite space I see it used is as backsplash in kitchens, absolutely timeless.
Sage is all the rage this year. It's the preferred neutral and I'm not mad about it. Ive always been a fan of the fall color scheme and nothing is better than bringing a little fall for all year round. I know it can be a bit dark thinking of an entire room that color, but if you have enough natural light flowing in, I think it's the perfect touch to warm up the space. Keep the accents light and use a lot of natural woods to liven up the nooks and crannies.
There you have it, Pinterest predicts all of our 2018 desires. But let's be honest, they're just telling us what we should DO with our homes this year. It's okay, because as a woman Pinterest is pretty much the guide to life. What's your take on our new trends? Happy decorating!
