When it comes to updating your home for the new year, it should come as no surprise that it pays to know what’s on trend, and simply what isn’t. To get you inspired and on the right track, we turned to Décor Aid interior designers for their take on what to try now that looks chic and effortless for 2019, and years to come.
When it comes to the year’s most bold, expressive, elegant, and even timeless color options, going for high-shine jewel tones is sure to bring your home a heady sense of everyday glamor. But if an entire room outfitted in jewel tones sounds too heavy-handed for you, you can always introduce them in smaller doses – say a throw pillow there, an accent wall here.
Though it’s been in vogue for the past few years, there’s something about jewel tone velvet fabrications and upholstery that just feel right for now, and refreshing to boot. Get the look by opting for hues that you know will make you happy for years to come as upholstery updates are an investment that should be well-judged.
Smooth to the touch matte finishes are as modern as they are timeless and they pair well with just about any design style or finish. The thing about matte finishes to consider is that they can scuff easier so be sure to avoid adding them in heavily trafficked areas.
Not since the ‘80s has speckled Terrazzo marble been so relevant and desirable to boot. A quick scan through any interior design publication will quickly prove its prominence on the market as you’ll spot the material covering entire walls for a fresh, graphic alternative to tonal marble. The thing is, since it is so chock full of personality and color, we suggest opting for it in smaller doses so you can stay on trend without having to invest too much or risk the chance of getting bored with it. That can be via decorative accessories or even bed linens to suit your mood.
Timeless in appeal and great at helping you avoid losing visual floor space, lucite tables are easy to care for, pair well with just about any design style, and they’ll never go out of style.
ABSTRACT ORGANIC METAL
For added sophistication, everyday elegance, and a warm, organic feel, make any room in your home feel modern with abstract sculptural metal art pieces for an indulgent note that’ll make it feel all the more unique.
FOUR POSTER CANOPY BEDS
Blame it on enviable hotel-inspired living, but canopy beds haven’t looked this enticing since the ‘80s, and for good reason. Today’s takes are much more timeless, less dramatic, and thanks to their sleek lines, they also lend a minimal imprint in any bedroom.
When it comes to elevating entertaining ideas and your daily life, investing in a built-in banquette in your kitchen will work to create a warm gathering space that brings everyone together, while boosting the value of your property. Just be sure to have one created or brought in that is simple in design while providing extra storage space.
