What is “In” according to designers

With world attention on climate change, it should come as no surprise that there is a move in design toward natural materials such as stone, granite and concrete and fresh elements such as plants and flowers. Incorporating organic elements will keep a space natural and serene. Photo from South Shore Decorating

A few other 2019 trends

Technology had a striking impact on 2018 design; in 2019 it is the environment. So it naturally follows that floral patterns would make the scene in the upcoming year. Designers anticipate seeing exaggerated botanical proportions and contrasting colors. In hard surfaces, rose gold was all the rage in 2018; copper is the hot metallic for 2019, with the red and orange undertones casting an earthy hue.

red furnitureKeeping a neutral background palate, expect to see a key piece of furniture or accessories with a rich-hued pop of color. Also, warmer tones, such as shades of red, will crop up. Red contrasts nicely with gray background palettes, which are still “in,” as are black and white color schemes.

vintage lightingThis year expect a few retro throwbacks, including stylish reuse/recycling of materials, that fit in better with an environmentally aware mindset. Think repurposed lighting, trough sinks and maybe even a little 70s décor. Airhorn pendant lights shown from Old Portland Hardware.


2019 color of the yearAnd finally, underscoring nature-inspired design choices, Pantone has picked “Live Coral” as it’s color of the year for 2019. Described as “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone,” Pantone hopes its warmth and vibrancy will speak to our “innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits” this year.
