6 Home Design Trends to Look for in 2019

Whether it’s because you’re bored, in a spending mood or just want to do a little “feng shui,” a new year is a great excuse to change up your home design. When you do, though, make sure you do it in style. Here are six design trends—some new and some returning—that you’re sure to see during this next run around the sun. Happy decorating!

Get floral.

Flower power is back! From antique styles to petal-inspired abstract patterns, floral fabrics have once again returned to the forefront. To bring it into your home, we love this Square Throw Pillow in the “Twiggy-Confetti” pattern from Mitchell Gold + Bob Evans. It’s filled with down, so it’s comfortable, and it’s the perfect pop for any solid couch or chair.

Make it dramatic.

Deep, rich jewel tones with a bold element are going to be all the rage in 2019. The more dramatic, the better! Add a little edge to a white or neutral room with jewel-toned paints, textiles, accessories or even rugs. We love this emerald Diane Von Furstenberg “Climbing Leopard” rug from The Rug Company. It’s hand-knotted from silk, comes in a variety of sizes, and adds depth and dimension to any room or entryway.

Get with the fringe.

Passamenterie, or ornamental edging and trimming (like tassels), will be huge in 2019, so expect to see fringe everywhere. A stark contrast to the “less is more” philosophy we’ve witnessed for years, expect to see furniture and accessories with contemporary trims, metallic fringes and tie-backs, all in bright shades and weird shapes. Sticking with that trend, Hoem has created this Baby Alpaga bedside cabinet in a variety of colors. It’s the perfect way to add a little intimacy and surprise to your bedroom décor.

Choose pieces that are sustainable and handmade.

Natural is making a comeback in 2019, and you’ll see loads of home accessories made out of organic materials like jute, rice paper, clay, wood and more. Get that earthy touch with this Suar Wood Bean Chair from Jalan Jalan. Don’t let the wood fool you—with the way it’s carved, it’s comfortable, too.

Mix up your metals.

Metals have been “in” for awhile, but in 2019, expect designers to start mixing them up. Here’s the rule of thumb: mix no more than two or three different metals, and keep your furniture in mind as you pick different hued metals for different rooms. Adding mixed metals to your bedroom? Consider these Electrum Sconce wall sconces from Jonathan Adler, which come in a double helix shape of polished brass and nickel.    

Back in Black.

Who doesn’t love the feeling of being in a spa? Give your home a high-end look with a spa-inspired bathroom: dark, sultry and all-black. Design Within Reach has the perfect accessory to add to this trend. Created by brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, this floating Corniche Shelving in black is a fun way to hold pictures, your toothbrush or even small vases. Added bonus? How you arrange it is completely up to you!
