New Design Trends for the New Year


As the new year begins, resolutions for a healthier, happier, and improved life are on the minds of many. While many new year trends focus on bettering yourself, there is always room to enhance your home with new designs and aesthetics. Your home is a space that reflects yourself and should be given the same thoughtfulness, care, and continual improvement as your personal goals. The new year brings fresh ideas for decorating, timeless new trends, and lively patterns. Try sprucing up your home as the year begins with the newest trends that are sure to seep into your home this new year.

Mixed Metals

The trend of using metal textures for interior decorating is here to stay. With rose gold being one of the most used design trends the past year, it is expected to remain popular with the addition of more copper aspects and mixed metals. Darker metal tones will take over with a push for a more rustic elegance. The use of brass accents and polished nickel décor are on the rise as they create intrigue and add uniqueness to any space. Industrial aspects of design will continue to transform home interior with darker and warmer metals being used for décor and furniture alike.

Pop of Rich Color

Decorators know the importance a pop of color can bring to any room. This year is no different, with accent walls and colorful accentuation being used to brighten up living spaces. The color trend for the upcoming year includes darker and richer tones, shying away from some of the bright patterns of the past. Warm colors such as dark green and navy are beginning to be embraced for their sophisticated and calming tones. More dramatic colored furniture and décor build an unspoken elegance that is inviting and intriguing. Use darker textures and tones to make your space an even cozier place to relax this new year.

Classic, Clean, and Chic

A dominating design for kitchen and bathrooms this year is a clean and classic approach. The traditional kitchen design will be embraced with a push for crisp cabinet colors and clean countertop surfaces. The kitchen trend will be inspired by bright tones that are lively and create a welcoming space to gather. Bathroom decor will be spruced up by incorporating patterned tiles and textured wall accents. White will continue to be a leading color for both bathrooms and kitchens for its ability to illuminate the space. Using a white color tone with accent décor will help keep your house looking both chic and classy.

The new year is a great time to try out new styles and home designs. Do something different by adding a touch of mixed metal décor or enrich your living space with deep color tones. Keep your kitchen bright with inviting lighting and tones. Start the year fresh by adding a few new key elements to your home.
