4 Ways to Design with 2018’s Color Trends
Are vibrant jewel colors sparking your interest or are you feeling this season’s calm and neutral pastel shades? Expressing your unique style with colorful additions this season is one way to add your own personal flair to your home. Color influences everything from fashion trends to interior design trends, and 2018’s hottest colors are livening up all kinds of spaces.
With the continued embrace of colorful design, more home design brands are introducing more color to their product lines—from furniture design and flooring options to home decor, plus all the home design essentials in between.
Whether you’re renovating or just want to add some pops of color, here are some of our favorite designs that embrace this season’s top color picks:
Get vibrant with Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. Jewel tones are a design favorite right now, especially for accent walls and home decor. This color is not only beautiful, it is associated with mindfulness and meditation, great for creating a relaxing yet inspiring environment in any home. (Image credit: Elle Decor)
Pastels are also popular among interior designers and home decor brands this season. These shades add a little color to your space with a very relaxing and welcoming vibe. Since they are so neutral they pair great with geometric prints and other colors in your space. From pretty pinks to chill blues, we can’t get enough of these shades for home design! Add style with pastel pillows and decor, or incorporate an accent rug like this Modesto Blue area rug from Mohawk Home.
This color is popping up everywhere! Add a spark of vibrancy to any space with this trending red shade. It looks great paired with colorful pastels or as a pop of color, adding life to your neutral home decor. Be bold and paint an entire room this color, or pick and choose where you want this beautiful color to shine in your home. From flooring to cabinets, to simple features throughout your home!
Neutrals aren’t going anywhere this year, but get ready for new neutrals like laid back metallics and soft pink/beigey tones. Remember not to be afraid to mix multiple neutral colors – black and brown and gray and beige can look great if paired correctly. We love these beige, white and brown Shaker-style cabinets and kitchen island from Omega. If you have an idea for pretty neutrals or pops of color, now is the time to bring it to life! Finding inspiration on Pinterest is a great place to start.
