Home design trends are constantly evolving, which means what was popular last year may not be in style today. This year, we’re moving away from the fads of 2017 -- goodbye velvet furniture and quote wall art -- and moving toward more classic design styles in 2018. From bold colors to mixed metals, this year is filled with some amazing decor design trends in Texas.
Bold Colors Draw the Eye
Deep, bold colors are topping the list of Texas design trends this year. Sherwin Williams named Oceanside its color of the year, making the deep blue-green hue a wonderful option for Texas homeowners wishing to bring some vibrant color to their walls or moulding. To really make a statement with color throughout your home, consider pairing these bold shades with deep, neutral hues like midnight blue or deep charcoal.
Sinks Make a Statement
What was often an overlooked kitchen design element is now coming to the forefront -- the kitchen sink. To really make an impact in your kitchen, consider replacing your traditional stainless steel or white sink with a farmhouse-style trough or bucket fixture. Or chose a kitchen sink made of an unconventional material, like concrete or copper, to make a bigger statement.
Modern Farmhouse Is Here to Stay
As Fixer Upper wraps up its final season, Texas homeowners are embracing the modern farmhouse design trend again this year. While mixing vintage and modern design elements will always be at the heart of this decorating trend, you can take a new twist on modern farmhouse design in your home by going beyond the traditional shiplap and french doors. To enhance the farmhouse style in your home, consider mixing metals in your kitchen by installing a chrome faucet with copper light fixtures or adding some bold colors or patterns to the traditional all-white living room palette.
Unique Floor Designs Enhance a Room
Dark walnut or cherry floors are a thing of the past. This is the year of light wood and patterned tile. To lighten your room and make it feel larger, choose a light colored wood flooring, like maple, pine or hickory. White-washed wood is another wonderful option for Texas homeowners who wish to incorporate this design trend into one of their rooms. Statement floors are quickly replacing statement walls as a popular design trend this year, as well. To really make a statement in a small room, add a unique patterned tile to the floor that draws the eye without adding clutter to the design.
Natural Materials Soften a Space
In addition to adding a softness to any space, decor made of natural materials are often more eco-friendly than their processed counterparts. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to start incorporating natural pieces into your home’s design. Artisan designers offer a wide variety of beautiful pieces ranging from small decorative accents to large pieces of furniture. And you can be sure these natural pieces will stand the test of time, both in durability and with timeless style.
