Top Interior Design Trends of 2019

New year, new you! What about a whole new living space? If you follow these 5 simple steps to incorporate this year’s most sought-after interior design trends, you’ll not only be able to refresh your home’s look, but you’ll also bring a well-curated, innovative edge to the space that will have your friends begging you for decorating advice.

1. Indulge in Matte Velvet Furnishings

Velvet lends a lavish, eclectic look to your apartment, and it also enhances a room’s comfort and warmth. Be on the lookout for jewel-toned velvet pieces, as they are predicted to be one of 2019’s most sought-after trends.

2. Tie Together the Bolds and Neutrals

Neutral colors work well in almost every space, and when utilized well, they can provide a subtle coziness. Highlight these areas of your home with more vibrant corals (Pantone’s Color of the Year!), plums, turquoise, or other bold colors. The dramatic contrasts will give your impressive dimension.

3. Go Green with Natural Elements

A must-have look from the past several years has been to bring the outdoors inside, via the use of potted plants. This look remains incredibly popular and cultivates a carefree, relaxed vibe. From a mini cactus to a large fern (real or fake – who can really tell, anyway?), you have many options in incorporating a bit of greenery into your space.

4. Vintage Lighting

Your choice of lighting can make or break a room. Elle Decor suggests using a softer yellow light in the living, dining, and family rooms to make your home appear more inviting. The lighting should vary depending on the activities that take place in different rooms (for example, kitchens and bathrooms should be more well-lit than the living room), but brightness isn’t the thing to pay attention to choosing your lighting – size, color, and fixture design are also important. Eye-catching, vintage lighting options like Edison incandescent light bulbs are currently trending, and they can bathe your home in a nice, warm glow.

5. Patterned Rugs

These vibrant, colorful rugs are sure to capture your houseguests’ attention. Whether big or small, the rug’s colors will tie your whole room together. If you’re a pet parent, you may want to consider incorporating this trend into your home, as the rug’s busyness easily hides pet hair and other stains that may appear over time.
