A new year is here – and with it dawns delightful new design trends! Here are a few of the trends we’re loving for 2019.
Color Trends: Warm & Creamy
After years of cool grays, crisp whites and blues ruling the game, there’s finally a shift in trending home colors. 2019 is all about embracing warmer tones.
This year, think walls and millwork with creamy white finishes. Mix in some terracotta, taupe and tan, which design experts predict will be making a comeback. For a pop of color, try Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year, a bright and vibrant hue called Living Coral.
Kitchen Trend: Black Countertops
We predict that timeless, white marble countertops are here to stay. However, if you’re craving something different, black countertops are on the rise. This bold, beautifultrend gives you an edgier option that brings the drama – while still giving a neutral shade that complements just about anything. We especially love black countertops that are paired with natural woods and creamy whites to achieve an effortless layered, organic look.
Bonus: Dark natural stones are more forgiving and stain less easily than their lighter counterparts. Going dark can lean modern – or when paired with traditional elements, give off a rustic and vintage vibe.
Material Trends: Natural Elements + Wood
This year, it’s time to breathe life into your home. 2019 is all about fresh, natural materials like stone, copper, concrete and marble. These elements bring an organic and serene ambiance to any space while reflecting on the world around you. One tip? Instead of painting vanity cabinets, consider choosing a natural wood and leaving it exposed, which can help bring lightness and texture to the space.
Lighting Trend: Vintage
Out with overexposed, harsh lighting! In 2019, lighting is all about being less exposed. Think vintage pendants and sconces in brass and copper finishes. For the ultimate vintage look, choose Edison bulbs that offer a warm glow to complement fixture styles.
Trough (Bucket) Sinks
With the modern farmhouse trend still going strong this year, trough sinks join the list of vintage design trends that are predicted to make a big comeback in 2019. These family friendly, farmhouse-inspired sinks will add personality to any laundry room or bathroom. Pair with high-end classic décor and finishes to keep it from being too kitschy.
Popular in the 80s, new and improved canopy beds are again on the rise. For a new take on the classic look, think more minimally-minded varieties: slim silhouettes and elements that don’t overpower a room or take up too much space.
