2019 Interior Design Trends

With 2018 out the door and the new year here, everyone is revamping their lives with resolutions and are determined to make changes. The design industry is showing some changes, too, with new trends arising, plus some trends are carrying over from the previous year. Here are our top ten 2019 design trends!

Quartz

Quartz countertops are a relatively new concept. Most clients want granite, but that requires high maintenance and isn’t as durable as quartz. With quartz you can get the look of granite while still maintaining a higher level of functionality and durability. It conveniently comes in a plethora of colors and styles to match your preference.

Keep your kitchen renovation expenses down by opting for quartz countertops.

Maximalism

As opposed to minimalism, maximalism is taking its stand in the new year with its bold presence of personality. While being stylishly crowded is tricky, the lived in look can make an area feel more welcoming and keep the eye interested. Some tried ways of doing this include using lots of different textures, sizes, and keeping colors bold but still within the same spectrum. We have been saying “more is more,” around the studio.

The mood board features lots of textures but sticks to similar hues.

Wallpaper

Wallpaper has been making a huge comeback this past year, and will continue to be used in many ways.  A subtle, textured wallpaper used throughout the space keeps a cohesiveness that’s not overbearing. A bold accent wall filled with pattern catches the eyes and is an effective way for adding personality into a room. In addition to plastering it up on walls, wallpaper can wrap accessories or be framed to mock art. This decor technique will incorporate unique characteristics while still being easily removable.

Green Trend

Not only is green in as a color but also as a lifestyle. Green products are a better alternative in 2019; we can embrace a cleaner and more eco-friendly way of living. The hue softens any space when incorporated as a toned-down, earthy color. To achieve this, bring house plants into your rooms. It can also energize when used in the workplace when used in a bright manner.

Sustainable and Natural Fabrics

In 2019 animal-free leathers and worm-free silks will provide us our favorite luxurious fabrics and textures guilt free. These synthetic textiles are often more durable and affordable than the real thing, making it even more tempting to incorporate.

Rose Gold

Whether it’s on the faucets or accented with lighting fixtures or accessories, rose gold is another hit color for 2019 with its sleek and glamorous demeanor. But not in the same ways as it was in 2018; this year you will find mixed with a brassy tone to modernize it. Small pops of the color add elegance to any space. For easy inclusion, Kohler just came out with a line of rose gold plumbing fixtures.

Decorative Ceilings

When designing your space don’t forget your ceilings; not often are ceiling seen as a fifth wall. Paint, wallpaper, and beams all act as ways to add some interests to your ceilings. This will furnish the room as a whole and can be used in many settings.

Multifunctional and Compact furniture

Perfect for the urban dwelling, 2019 will show more stylish options of compact, multipurpose furniture pieces. These will be smaller in scale and adaptable to different spaces. With growing families and smaller spaces in popular cities, functional furniture is key to invest in.

Curvilinear Furniture

2019 is bringing back a sense of sensuality! Curved furnishings soften and invite conversation into your space. This variation of form gives the room interest and breaks the mundane flow of corners. It’s easy to draw a large room in by focusing the circle in the center, or if you’re tight on space, use the circular form in furniture to allow for more walk-space.

This softly curved seating area with blue hues invites guests to sit down and have a heartfelt conversation.

Art Deco

Mid-Century Modern was truly loved, but it is on the way out and Art Deco will be making a comeback. Find it this year with its more lavish details being found in sofas, case goods, lighting and accessories. These flairs will easily upgrade any space.

Art decor can really personalize a space.

4 Most Common Interior Design Mistakes

When it comes to interior design and decorating your home, people tend to make some very easy to miss mistakes. Don’t feel bad, because they’re extremely common! We’re just here to constructively point them out and let you know how easily they can be fixed.

Window Mis-Treatment

Window Treatments are so important to a space, and though we could easily do a whole post just about window do’s and don’ts, here are the basics to making your windows fabulous. First, we’ll cover the length. Window treatments MUST touch the floor. They can be barely kissing it, or dragging by a few inches, but the hem of your panels needs to meet the floor. Next, let’s talk width. Maximize the width of your windows! Panels should frame your window, not cover it up. Drapery Panels should be hung so that when gathered, they barely cover the edge of the window. This will give the illusion that the window is bigger than it is, and it will maximize your natural light. Last, we’ll talk about the height. Instead of hanging your rod directly on top of the window, bring it up! Ideally, the rod should be hung half-way between the top of the window and your ceiling. This brings the eye continuously from floor to ceiling, elongating your space instead of chopping it up.

Rug Neglecting

RUGS ARE THE BOMB! Use them. Love them. Put one in every room. But really, we use rugs in almost every space we design! Even on carpet you may ask? ABSOLUTELY. An area rug will define your conversation space, give depth to your design, and save your flooring. Not to mention, rugs bring the opportunity to make a statement! Whether neutral or vibrant, nothing introduces the style in a space faster than a rug, or makes a bigger impact. Rugs are definitely an investment, but they are one worth making. And let’s not forget, they don’t have to break the bank.

Art Interference

I’m not in the NBA, and I am going to venture a guess to say that most of your house-guests aren’t either. This means that your art should NOT be hung eye-level to someone who is 6’10. There is a common misconception that hanging art and wall décor higher will bring the eye up and create height in your space. In actuality, when art and decor is hung too high, it creates a disconnect between the art and furniture, halting the harmony of your space. Art should generally be hung 63″ above the floor, or so the center of the piece is eye-level to someone who is about 5’6″.

Space planning

Space planning is the foundation of every room, and having your furniture set appropriately makes a huge difference. The fourth most common design mistake is having your furniture pushed up against the walls or to the edge of the room in an open floor plan. With few exceptions, main furniture pieces should never be directly against the wall. Even in small spaces, there should be a few inches between. When one piece is anchored against a wall, the others should be brought to it, not shoved all the way against the opposite wall. This is another way area rugs can come in handy, as a guide to help you space plan!

We hope these key suggestions have helped you out!
