As the new year dawns upon us, we invited some of our favorite designers to predict the interior design trends that will dominate 2018. From natural wood elements to moody green hues, these are the top interior design trends that will find their way into your upcoming projects.

#1 Soft Edges in Furnishings

Soft Edges in Furnishings

We are seeing square and boxy edges remain in inspiration, but being executed with more flowy curves and a softness to them. Even Classic mid-century pieces are having a hint of softness to them

#2 Dark Hues with Understated Drama

Dark Hues with Understated Drama

We will be seeing Darker, moodier colors with understated drama, especially in the higher-end urban home. It will still be cozy and warm, but just a bit introverted. This is in contrast to all the lovely bright white, no-color interiors we’ve seen in farmhouse decor and on Instagram all these years. We’re in for a bit of an adjustment.

#3 Patterned Flooring

Patterned Flooring

A major trend is layering different eras and textures of furnishing. The strictly minimal mid-century modern style favored for the better part of 2010’s is making way for more eclectic design.

#4 Natural Wood Elements

Natural Wood Elements

Natural Wood is a very fitting for the times, as it has a down-to-earth quality that compliments a wide range of interior styles, It’s also durable and can handle the wear and tear of a family life. The Maker Movement has given this hand sawn look some legs and an air of casual sophistication. Its practical and organic for a variety of applications and we hope the trend continues.

#5 Eclectic Design

#6 Kitchen Window Pass-Throughs

Kitchen Window Pass-Throughs

Celebrating the best of indoor/outdoor living, kitchen window pass-throughs are a terrific way to connect outside entertaining spaces, especially with direct door access is limited. Form meets function in a beautiful way.

#7 Moody Greens

Moody Greens

Green is still really strong, but we’re layering more neutral greens with more brilliant ones. Green hues are also warmer and less ‘greige’

#8 Wallpaper as a Story or Art

Wallpaper as a Story or Art

Wallpaper has always been an effective way to make a design statement, but a new generation of wallcoverings takes these design statements to the next level. The ability to create custom scaled designs are like this gorgeous fist mural elevates the wallpaper to its own art form.

#9 Traditional Decor

Traditional Decor

We see 2018 bringing us more of the fabulous mix. We are seeing a renewal of decorating references draw from the past – dare we say traditional! Today’s “Traditional”, however, is fresh. It seeks inspiration from history and exudes comfort yet it incorporates chic, modern elements. Rooms are more layered with attention to the details, makeing for a space full of characcters and interest. Whether it’s passementerie on curtains and upholstery or objects and antiques with intriguing shapes and forms, the room becomes an unexpected experience, which will hopefully transcend the test of time.

#10 Metallic Finishes

Metallic Finishes

Metallic finishes always lighten and brighten a room because of their reflectivity. Trending into 2018, we find that metallics reflect an urban energy. Many designers are using metallics in smaller spaces on both ceilings and even on a single wall. We have seen metallics being used in powder rooms, dressing rooms, and master suite bathrooms, on both sinks and vanities, as well as ceilings and accent walls.
