Just like fashion, tech and pop-culture, home decor trends change each year. And 2019 is no different. From popular colors, to furniture and even window treatments, design trends define the style of the year. Checkout this year’s home decor trends from popular bloggers and influencers in the home decor space.
“When asked about what I think the next up and coming decor trends are, I think of aesthetics. How do we live or how do we want to live today. I don’t know that these are necessarily trending but they’re certainly what I think people are turning to:
Technology, and specifically Smart Technology within home decor. This could be motorized window coverings to lighting to sound to audiovisual. We all live with technology every day and the easier it is to use while still looking aesthetically pleasing in our homes is a must.
I also am seeing traditional style redone in a very modern way. Think traditional bones of a Tudor-style home mixed with vintage and antique furnishings and finds as well as modern shapes, sculpture, abstract art, and designs in a plethora of colors from black and white, beiges, grays and browns to deep greens and moody blues and pinks have definitely not gone anywhere especially when paired or integrated with rusts and blues. Mixing woods and finishes, as well as mixing metals such as brass and chrome are definitely popping up and not going anywhere anytime soon. Creating a more collected or curated feel over time, showcasing more individuality and personality is where I am seeing a rise.”

“In 2019, I think there will be a continued push of modernism in every style. Clean lines, organic, and simple decor will be favored. White will continue to be a hit, but a warmer tone, with creamy hues. That warm white will pair well with all the earthy palettes we will see such as terracotta, rich greens, blues, and oranges. Lightened wood elements, like cedar, will be incorporated in interiors, as well as exteriors. Window coverings will continue to incorporate new technology such as automated functions in homes. Roller shades in different fabrics and textures will continue gaining popularity as well. 2019 will be a lighter and brighter year with a lot of rich minimalist accents.”

“Layered texture! I love it when someone is open to the concept of layering through texture. It’s what I like to call maximalism-light because layering texture is one of the easiest yet most effective changes you can make in your space while still bringing high impact. I love exploring texture in fabrics, upholstery, artwork and decorative fabrics, upholstery and artwork. Try mixing handmade ceramics with machine-quality metal pieces or a rattan piece of furniture next to a lacquered piece. Or even try pairing a set of textured bamboo shades layered with beautiful patterned curtains. There is something about that dichotomy which feels curated and thoughtful. Combining those opposite textures brings together a sense of layering that translates into a truly considered room. “

“The trend of minimalism started in 2018 and will surely continue in 2019. Homeowners are loving this trend due to the lack of clutter, clean design, and overall simplicity of a space. Less is more in this case! However, less furniture and clutter does not equal less style. The furniture and finishes (light fixtures, blinds, flooring, wall coverings, etc.) must be expertly and intentionally thought through so that a minimalist space will have a maximal impact. You may expect to see a white room with a wallpapered ceiling and a stunning velvet dark green sofa. Statement walls, such as wallpaper or moulding will be popular, paired with minimal artwork and wall decor. A window flanked by simple artwork might be the enter of attention of a room; with this, blinds may be either muted or stand out in contrast to the rest of the space in order to draw attention to the window. Form and function are key when it comes to simplicity and the furniture and decor selected must be able to be beautiful as well as functional for a space. Everyone can embrace minimalism in their homes: the key is to create a simple, functional, intentional, and beautiful space that will last for years to come.”

“For 2019, I think decor trends are going to continue towards simple. Not necessarily minimalism but intentional. Choosing pieces that mean something. I think clean white walls are here to stay packing a punch with some contrast with art and textiles. Black and white will be a strong pairing – keeping things simple but delivering that visual contrast.”

“I’m calling 2019 the year of the rebound. I think most home decor trends originate from how we are feeling. And as a whole, I think we’re done with the dark and dreary. Don’t get me wrong, I think grays are here to stay. But I think we’ll be seeing a lot more taupe, brown, and warmer neutrals. I also think modern is going to reign King, a result of the massive farmhouse movement in the past few years. And when it comes to window treatments? I think we’ll see lots of “light and airy,” maybe even a comeback of paper shades. Again, in an attempt to welcome lighter feelings and emotions.”
Allison Aars – The Festive Farmhouse
Looks like we’re ready for 2019 to be filled with light, bright, simplistic spaces. Modernism is pushing forward whether it be with technology, color schemes or the layout of the space. Bamboo shades will keep their hold as the window covering staple of modern homes, but roller shades will see a rise as we move throughout the year, incorporating minimalism into all areas of a home. Don’t underestimate the idea of minimalism, however. 2019 will continue to see bold pieces in a variety of home styles, whether it be layering fabrics that pop, wallpaper patterns that stand out or boldly colored window treatments that catch your eye. In the home decor realm, we know 2019 will be a year for the books.
