With the new year on the horizon, it’s time to look to home staging trends already on the rise for 2019.
Keeping up with trends can be confusing and stressful, since they typically change so quickly. The good news is that in 2019, some trends will continue — and besides, it’s all supposed to be good fun, so if you don’t feel like staying abreast of what’s happening in the interior design industry, you can always chat with a home staging expert to get their inspirational take.
In the meantime, here are the styles, trends and colors you can expect to dominate the industry next year.
Overall Themes for 2019
Rebellion and nonconformity are keywords for styling in 2019. Think experimental, freedom, eye-popping, colorful, contrasting — bold styles, patterns and themes that make a statement!
The Dominant Colors Are…
Colors trends in 2019 are all across the spectrum. On one hand, there’s Behr’s bold, courageous 2019 Color of the Year, Blueprint.
The brand describes the color as honest, approachable and a template — or blueprint, if you will — for turning your dream world into reality. The color works seamlessly with a variety of styling palettes, including:
· Earth tones
· Jewel tones
In addition to Blueprint, you’ll find mellow tones like fleshy nudes, tans, soft beiges and pale roses and bronze.
The Return of Gold — and Continued Reign of Copper and Brass
Gold is back! For faucets, door handles and fixtures, look to this color to accent your bathrooms and decorations. In the meantime, copper and brushed brass will only become even more popular.
Mid-Century Continues to Thrive
Mid-century modern will keep gaining traction in the interior design world, but in 2019 think less minimalistic-Nordic and more elegance with Italian and French-themed luxury pieces like sofas, chairs and rugs.
Plants, Plants, Plants!
Filling living rooms and kitchens with plants has been a peripheral trend for years (think: the monstera plant), but in 2019 expect the plant trend to go mainstream.
After all, who wouldn’t want more greenery — and cleaned, oxygenated air — in their homes, especially during the dreary winter months?
Welcome the “Wellness Kitchen”
It’s no secret that healthy lifestyles, diets and sustainability have been pursued on a global scale for a while now.
In 2019, look for the movement to be brought directly into people’s homes with the “wellness kitchen,” a design and style that incorporates recycled and sustainable materials, an open, engaging layout that encourages interaction between family members and unique, ultra-small urban farming units that allow people to grow small portions of produce in their own kitchens.
