There are various other trends too that 2018 will welcome with renewed energy. We’ve done the research for you, highlighting a few important trends that will rule the year 2018.
We often get tired of spending hours, days and months deciding on the colour that will grace our walls, only to subsequently get bored of the same colour that sits for a very long time. Thankfully, wallpapers and wall art have replaced paints and the manic process of painting walls. Ombre wallpapers, stripes and patterns have become the new black. Wallpapers give your walls a fresh and contemporary look and feel. Replacing paints with wallpapers add a bespoke charm to the walls of your home, giving it the theme of your choice. And to add a cherry on the cake, wooden and metallic wall décor pieces are trending like never before. Not only do they save space, but also give your walls a statement wrapped in sheer luxury. Moreover, solid ornamental artworks tend to liven the atmosphere and complement an array of aesthetics to give your abode a chic ambience.
Pantone colour of the year 2018, Ultra Violet promises to lend a striking effect to your home, with a subtle creative balance. This soothing colour when used in shades and contrast in your décor, offers an artistic display with a sense of calm. Choose from shades of violet, like lavender or mauve, and accentuate the interiors with a splash of purple. Purple and its shades never fail to emphasize the ambience. Violet and purple used on the verandah is a vibrant combination and heightens the sense of serenity. Complete the look with wooden benches and a few rugs thrown over, and you are set for cozy get-togethers. When paired with greys and greens, ultra violet creates a dazzling elegance in your home.
Plants can add a fresh touch to your life and the décor of your home. Their vibrant foliage and calm aura make them fit into the modern environment easily. Various types of plants can be used to decorate the bedroom, the dining room, verandah, kitchen, and the bathroom too. For your living room, you can use ceramic or glass bases for a complete ecosystem of succulents and cacti in it, in a variety of shapes. Sand and stones give lend pleasant earthy feel and accentuate the space. You can also use both hanging and floor models of planters and spruce up the décor of your place. Planting herbs in your kitchen is not only beneficial but creates positive energy too, making cooking more fun. Some herbs like basil, lavender, oregano, and thyme in organic pots will give your kitchen a completely natural and homely look, making it look a lot less modular.
A splash of metallic can infuse a touch of allure to your home. Metal accessories with a pop of bright colours create a glitzy environment perfect for a chic and glamourous party. Metal lends a variety of looks to your home depending on the way it is used. Rubbed or matte metal illustrations give the living space a rustic look, creating a perfect setting for a homely and subtle gettogether. Marble, which gives a rich finish when used as a table top with a metal stand, create an inviting and elegant undertone. Shiny metal in the kitchen gives it a perfectly modular finish and makes it look modern and sophisticated. Wainscoting finished in metal is incomparable and when paired with matching wood, makes some serious design statement in your home.
