As we head into the new year, there are three major interior design trends to pay attention to in 2019. If you want a house that is both aesthetically pleasing and modern, consider incorporating some of these design elements before the new year. Some of these trends have been growing in popularity over the last few years while some are right on the cutting edge.
In the past, the trend was to seek out a large number of items as well as large furniture pieces as if to fill up all the space in a home. More and more people are now trying to live with intent and purpose, and this affects the items they choose for their home. As more people choose to go the rental route over homeownership, they find themselves with less space to work with than they would with a traditional home. In 2019, multifunctional furniture that is compact will be a major trend.
In the last year, the media has been focusing on the minimalist movement. As the new year begins, people will be continuing to declutter their homes, apartments, and offices. They will not want to fill it backup with junk or one-purpose items, so they will be looking for modern pieces that have multiple purposes.
Rustic-Style Furniture and Decor
The rustic design trend is still going strong as people identify with the comforting and warm feelings evoked by these rustic-style pieces, such as tables and chairs made out of beautiful handcrafted pieces of wood. In 2019, rustic design is going to continue to grow as people modernize the idea by utilizing different materials such as steel and silver. This will be the case for furniture and also architectural changes. For example, there are many places to use a barn door in a rustic design. This style of decor is quite cozy and inviting, so it will be a major trend during both the winter and summer months.
Boho is back, baby. While boho has never fully faded away in the design world, it is becoming more upscale in 2019 than it has ever been before. Long gone are the stereotypical beach-style vibe decorations as people are opting for classier pieces that create a whimsical flow with vibrant colors. Yellows, browns, and blues play a major part in the chic boho trend as they provide an excellent way brighten a room without utilizing incredibly bright colors. With this trend, it is essential to pay attention to the shades of blues and yellows as well as what furniture pieces the shades are incorporated in.
These design trends are just the tip of the iceberg. If you are looking to redecorate your home soon, take a look around and figure out what fits your style the best.
