2018 Cutting Edge Home Decor Trends


Your South Barrington, Barrington, Schaumburg, Bartlett, Roselle, Streamwood, or Chicago and Northwest Suburbs Home, is your castle and its decor is a unique artistic expression of your tastes and aesthetic. In order to keep your home decor looking fresh and up to date rather than stale, it’s important to pay attention to the trends as they shift and change. This is especially important if you are selling your home, because outdated décor can make a negative first impression on the buyer.

If you are planning a remodel or simply a redecoration this year either for yourself or because you are selling your home, follow these 3 simple tricks to get the look that everyone wants.

A Breath Of Fresh Air

Benjamin Moore Paints announced their 2018 Color of the Year, which is a powdery sky blue hue or pale grey called “Breath of Fresh Air”.  This gentle pastel color offers a good compliment to neutral tones and hues as well as most shades of greens and blues. It appears modern, fresh and it a vibrant addition to many living rooms, dining rooms and bathrooms. 


Pattern Trends For 2018

Color blocking is so last year! The hottest thing at the moment is patterns that have a white background and a historic themed repeating print. This print includes wallpaper, drapes or fabrics with a floral print or a vintage design on white. Geometric shapes, especially triangles and chevrons are also very big and can offer a luxurious look on a budget. These are often seen in bright and vibrant colours, sometimes also with a white background.

A Touch Of Handmade Elegance

Another interesting home décor trend of the moment is incorporating hand-made items into the room. This could include a hand-knit throw that is draped over a sofa, or an embroidered cushion. If you are crafty, you could make these items yourself. Otherwise, you could purchase these one of a kind pieces from your local artisans or only at shops such as Etsy.com.

These are just a few hot 2018 home décor trends to get you started on your decorating project. Be creative and have fun while decorating your South Barrington, Barrington, Schaumburg, Bartlett, Roselle, Streamwood or Chicago and Northwest Suburbs Home, so that you can create a unique and original place where you will feel happy and inspired. Image by Poshsurfside Flickr
