No matter if you’re planning a complete renovation of your home or you’re simply looking to breathe some new life into your living space, you definitely need to check what’s new in interior design for 2018. Some old trends are out, some new trends are in, and some trends are still going strong. So, here are some of the most prominent home décor trends you should keep an eye on next year.


1) Connection

In 2018, we’re not only matching colors and styles, we are connecting the theme in a cultural way. Past few years were all about exploring new horizons, traveling and immersing yourself into the local culture. More and more people start to consider the whole world as their home and are seeking more authentic experiences. So, they want their homes to reflect their open-minded lifestyle. Mixing Persian, Moroccan and Mexican elements into your home design will be very desirable. Think lacey hammocks and daybeds, wicker furniture in exotic colors, piles of colorful pillows and stencils and wallpapers that mimic intricate traditional and oriental patterns. In short: a lot of connecting, mixing and matching! 

2) Navy blue

Blue, especially navy blue is a real hit in interior design circles. Even though navy is an elegant and serious color that is considered to be traditional and masculine, it doesn’t have to be boring. It’s really a versatile color that can serve many purposes in the home. For instance, you can make a theme room in navy blue, introduce a pop of color with navy blue statement furniture, or simply add a blue decor piece here and there – the choice is yours, but definitely don’t ignore it in 2018!

3) Stylish rugs

For as long as we can remember, rugs have been the key element in the interior design, especially in living rooms. They are a great way to define a room, add warmth and comfort and serve as amazing decorative elements. However, in 2018 handmade area rugs are not going to be reserved for living rooms and bedrooms only. Every room can have a carpet, even your bathroom and outside spaces. So, if you have a patio you love to spend time in, feel free to make it homier with a stylish rug. There are practically no limitations on what you can and can’t do with rugs as long as you pick the right size rug for your room.

4) Marvelous marble

You might think that marble is a thing of past, but it’s back! If you were considering a complete bathroom renovation, you might want to opt for marble floors. Since 2018 is the year of statement flooring, your bathroom will look very much up-to-date. Lovely marble floors and gorgeous baths are a real win-win design solution for your bathroom. Plus, marble and ceramics go very well together if you already have ceramic tiles.

5) Minimalism is not going anywhere

For the past few years, minimalism has been the main topic in every interior design magazine, and by the looks of it, it’s here to stay! The reason minimalism is so popular is that offers a break from our busy and often disorganized lives, and provides you with a space that’s simple, relaxing and elegant – perfect for anyone who desires peace and order in their home.

6) Warm metal pieces

Metal will be totally in next year, from metallic chandeliers and lamps to elaborate metallic sculptures and other art pieces. However, you should pay attention to which metals you choose for your home, since popular copper isn’t that popular anymore and brass has taken its place. Additionally, experts are predicting a return of silver metals, so don’t rule them out just yet!


7) Perfectly imperfect Wabi-sabi

However, if minimalism is too… well minimalist and sterile for you, you can check out Wabi-sabi.  Wabi-sabi is an ancient Japanese philosophy that appreciates imperfection in things and finds beauty in them instead of ugliness. So, in 2018 you can look for items touched by time and add a little perfect imperfection to your home.


So, if you love to be trendy and you want your home to follow, definitely give some of these 2018 home décor trends a shot.
