Sleek living spaces, tech-inspired décor, and cool color palettes were some of the top interior design trends of 2017. Today we see homes inspired by nature, mixed metals, and bold hues as new, hot and fresh decor trends. We took a look back at what was in and put on the demand and asked our senior designers to compile a list of interior designs from 2017 that won’t come back this year. Read on to find out what five interior decorating trends the Decor Aid designers are predicting for this year.
Goodbye all white rooms
For 2018 our designers have predicted that we will see fewer white rooms. While white kitchens can exude class, purity, and cleanliness, a home can be cold, lifeless, and reminiscent of a laboratory. This year kitchens and other all-white spaces will switch from sharp, sleek designs to earthy and organic. Expect more colors and bolder hues used in rooms throughout the home.

Different shades of gray are very useful for adding neutrality to a room that may otherwise feel overwhelmed. Despite the complementary factors, more people will choose to neutralize an area with natural pastels rather than gray in 2018. Trying out this new trend is very easy. Our experienced decorators recommend incorporating the trend through accent decor. If you want to spice up your home, go for a pastel and paint an accent ceiling.

Bye bar cart, hello coffee cart
Now don’t get us wrong, if it’s done right or if perfectly staged bar carts can be a visually stunning addition to your home, they don’t offer many features for everyday use. Bar carts aren’t something you use every day, but tend to take up space that you could use in other ways. If you don’t want to part with your bar cart, the best thing to do is to use it as a coffee cart instead, which you will likely use every day.

Stronger and lighter colors are here!
For some time now, cool shades have dominated the trend color list, with indigo being a fan favorite among many. Well, get ready to say goodbye as there was already a sudden surge in bold, lighter, and warmer colors like burnt yellow and organic green in 2018. While this new trend shift may not be welcomed by everyone, know that warmer hues make a home more welcoming and comfortable, while indigo can be.
Welcome to unrefined metals
Similar to all white rooms, silver hardware has boomed in recent years. Kitchens and bathrooms around the world were made of stainless steel or polished nickel. We assume that the natural world will be in the foreground. Our designers have found that granite, copper and other unpolished metals are already replacing silver fittings. Silver fittings are conventional and expected, while mixed and unrefined metals add nature and a surprising amount of personality to your home.
