It’s safe to say that both the fashion and interior design industries are always two steps ahead of everyone else. We’re only three months into 2017, but we can already give you a heads up for the colors and trends that are going to consume the interior design industry in 2018. Here’s a sneak peak:

Intense Colors

People are shying away from neutral colors, and going bold in their homes. Intense colors flow naturally with our busy lifestyles and thought processes of today’s society. Pantone colors blue and orange could be a popular combination in 2018. With the mix of both a warm and cool tone, it’s hard to avoid looking at.

While blue and orange are expected to be two popular colors, expect the trend of bold warm and cool tone blending in statement pieces and wall hangings. The color combinations demand attention.

More Metallic

Even though all that glitters is not gold as the saying goes, humans still are attracted to anything that is iridescent or pearlized. This means that 2018 will bring more metallics, a trend that is already popular. However, expect them to be on the more muted side next year. Metallic pieces will be popular decorative items that will serve as a pretty pop of texture and flash inside the home.

The Color Pink

Admit it. When you think of painting with pink, you imagine a bubblegum-colored room for your 10-year-old daughter. Think again, according to the Discretion palette. Consider shades of Elderberry, Burnished Lilac, and Hawthorne Rose for your walls and curtains. Even the names of the colors sound pretty.

More Technology

Homes are getting smarter and smarter, and you can only expect that trend to continue to expand. Many home builders are taking notice, and are including smart-home features in their plans from the beginning. This includes more advanced security systems, voice-activated lights, remote-controlled shades, and more.

Hand Painted Wallpaper

Remember when wallpaper used to devalue the price of a home? Not anymore, according to design experts. In 2018, expect to see hand-painted style wallpaper that signifies elegance and class. Instead of wallpapering an entire room, the trend will be used more so as a statement wall or ceiling to create texture and depth.
