Lately, we’ve been talking a lot about Design Trends and Design Moodboards! We are doing this because we honestly believe our readers like to make conscious decisions about the Trends they will follow in their own design projects. For that reason, we’ve decided to collect the opinions of some Top Interior Designers about their design choices and their feelings about some of the Top Trends we’ve been talking. This way you’ll have another valuable piece of information that will help you make the right choice for your project!
Sustainability (Less is More) described by designer : “Being strategic and purposeful about purchasing behavior is a key ingredient to a sustainable ethos. From the initial question of, ‘Who you are purchasing from and what values do they stand for?’ to ‘What type of materials are used to build each item?’ To complement and highlight special pieces, we believe in designing an impeccable foundation through the use of timeless materials, ultimately resulting in bones that evoke emotion whenever you’re in your space”.
Biophilia described by designer Angie Lee of : “For 2019, there is greater interest in biophilia–emphasizing the relationship between humankind and nature, and the connections between the two. Natural, organic materials–such as wood floors, stone, and daylight and plant life–remind us of the exterior and brings the outside and nature, in. We are machine- and technology-driven society, but nostalgic about past processes and handiwork, so opportunities for custom Millwork and crafted materials are very important”.
Memphis Design described by designer Carolyn Pressly of : “The Memphis movement is overtaking midcentury modern as the furnishing and color selection du jour. Primary colors and graphic shapes haven’t seen this much action since the eighties. Also in our space planning, we are turning away from straight, rigid furniture lines and choosing enveloping tub chairs and Vladimir Kagan-esque curved sofas”.
Feminine Tones described by Katharine Pooley of : “Colors I see in for 2019 are blush, dusty pink and bronze. Warm colors and feminine tones for on the walls and dashes of soft pinks to break up expanses of taupe or neutrals will instantly update a tired room”.
Maximalist Art described by Sandra Chandler of : “The dominance of minimalism and Scandinavian design, which is characterized by neutral colors and simple materials, is finally declining. In its place, bright colors and graphic patterns are becoming more prevalent in the home. Don’t be afraid to mix colors, patterns and textures. Take a gallery wall to the next level by having it cover an entire wall, or add a dramatic, large-scale piece to your space. In this case, more is more”.
Rich Jewel Tones with an Edge described by Jeff Andrews of : “Right now, I am loving deep, rich jewel tones with an edge. Bold indigo, hunter and emerald green, and dark teal all feel ready to have a moment outside of the kitchen. We’re layering living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms with paints, fabrics, accessories, and rugs in these colors to create drama against a backdrop of white architectural elements”
Boho Vibe with a Twist described by Dolores Suarez of : “The boho vibe is back but with a vintage modern twist and curved lines. Layering and patterned fabrics is something you will see again, but this time around, they will be a bit cleaner and brighter. Curved furnishings and softer lines and mixing of modern and vintage is what we expect for 2019.”.
Mixed Metal Accents described by Keita Turner of .: “An ensemble of metal accents (no more than a mix of two to three different metal accents) used throughout a room is in, and will always be a timeless and tasteful way to create balance and definition in an environment. For example, brass, gold or nickel accents mix well with either oil-rubbed bronze or aged iron accents. Metals like silver and pewter can mix well with bronze and black brown metals. It’s all about moderation and context”.
Painted Ceilings described by Rebecca Rowland from .: “In 2019, we’ll start to see people taking advantage of the fifth wall – the ceiling has been ignored for too long! From wallpaper to molding and daring paint colors, the ceiling will be the place that people start taking chances and creating a ‘wow moment’ in their spaces”.
Passamenterie described by Corey Damen Jenkins of : “Passamenterie will begin making a big return to the market place in 2019. The “less is more” trend has been enjoyed for a long time, but now, modern interpretations of trims, bullion fringe and tie-backs will be in. Vibrant color combinations and unusual shapes will make passamenterie ‘hip’ again”.
