2018 Interior Design Trends


The new year has begun which means it’s out with the old and in with the new! Whether you’re looking to redo your whole home or just freshen up your kitchen, these 2018 interior design trends are sure to inspire you.

Ultra Violet: Pantone Color of the Year

Ultra violet is an intense blue-based purple shade that will take over interior design world this year. It will be featured in many different shades, namely lavender and soft violet. Incorporate this color into your decor to create a sense of depth and sophistication in the room. Utilize deeper, richer colors such as olive green as accents to the softer shades of purple.


Although succulents and indoor plants have been around for a while now, we expect to see a wider use of greenery this year. These living décor plants are an inexpensive way to add color and a functional design element to a room. There are many ways to incorporate more greenery to your décor: hanging plants from the ceiling, large potted plants, living green walls, and growing microgreens in edible indoor gardens. Save yourself some trouble and choose plants that require low maintenance.

Patterned Floors and Ceilings

This year, we’re moving away from simple wood floors and moving towards tile in patterns such as herringbone, parquet, and chevron. With their ability to transform a room from top to bottom, statement ceilings are the new game changers in interior design. Ceiling designs are limitless and can range from trendy gingham patterns to industrial-style exposed beams.

Mixed metal finishes

Metals such as copper, satin brass, black nickel, bronze and gold are on the rise. Mixed metal décor can be used in all around the home. The trick to planning your mixed metal decor is to choose one dominant metal and choose other metals to accent it.

Colorful Kitchens

Even though white kitchens aren’t going anywhere, we will see a rise in vibrantly colored kitchens this year. Give your kitchen a pop of color starting with the cabinets. Bold new colors such as petrol green, orange, and dark plum will add drama and sophistication to your kitchen. Another way to incorporate diverse bold colors to your kitchen is showcasing your colorful kitchen appliances, such as Kitchen Aid stand mixers.
