2018 design trends: up-and-coming styles
Different trends for different spaces, from living rooms to kitchens and bedrooms to bathrooms, introducing shapes, materials and colors sometimes sophisticated and sometimes minimal, but always adapted to each individual ambience mood.
Different harmonies which take into account both objective aesthetic values and multiple kinds of lifestyle, frequently influenced by ongoing developments such as the digital evolution towards the smart home concept.
For living room areas, the trend is towards natural and untreated materials and forms. On the rise, a taste for bamboo, wickerwork and woven fibers, evoking pleasantly relaxing and nature-orientated moods. A non-specific ethnic influence often described as Afro-chic. Another trend for shared living spaces, however, favors a more severe mood, in total back or, alternatively, navy blue, for example in sofa and armchair upholstery. These darker colors, however, will then be offset by white cushions or furnishing and by decorative items in bright dominating colors.
Meanwhile, 2018 furnishing trends in bedrooms and night zones tend to shift to more minimal styles with a Scandinavian mood. A look that is clean and simple, but also welcomingly soothing. Recently – perhaps influenced by the products of certain low cost giants – furniture and accessories have tended towards Nordic tastes. Indeed, northern European design looks to be one of the major furnishing features of 2018. That means bedrooms where whites are the dominant color, with walls and furniture in off-whites and creams, and fabrics in pale neutrals.
