Moody, dark hues are the way forward in home décor, according to Pinterest.
Monochrome is the strongest look this season, floral wallpaper is back with a vengeance and houseplants are here to stay!
Including design, materials, planting and lifestyle influences.
The two colours complement each other perfectly. Take a look at some of the top pins for your home inspiration…
“This year, I’ve noticed that the concept of a ‘decorated space’ is going out of style, and that will only become more prevalent in the year to come. People want their spaces curated and not decorated. The idea of a decorated home feels old-fashioned to a new generation of design enthusiasts. A series of collected objects as decor is the new approach.”—Ryan Korban
‘This season is all about bringing opulent prints and patterns together.’
“Green has been missing from the market lately. It’s a color that I love and will always use and I feel it’s making a comeback. What I’m hearing from some of the main fabric houses is that they are producing and incorporating more greens again. It’s such an important color because it brings nature indoors and into the home.”—Alex Papachristidis
Velvet is set to take over every room of our home, according to Pinterest

Marble interiors is trending on Pinterest and they’re beautiful
“Marie Antoinette said the only thing that is new is what has been forgotten, and trends are tied to that thought: something that has been forgotten that is being enjoyed again. I think old-fashioned chintzes are looking modern again, especially if used sparingly. I think pastels will trickle into fashion; they are so pretty and easy to live with. Sherbet colors: lemon chiffon, pistachio, lettuce, and delphinium blue are finding their way into my schemes. There is always a place for geometry in design. I am having a love affair with Cubism, and I see it in the works of Kelly Wearstler in a completely fresh way.”—Miles Redd
Greenhouses and glasshouses: the biggest plants under glass trends
What should we be looking forward to in 2018? Some of our favorite interior designers and decorators weigh in:
“Good lighting still remains key to making any room feel warm and inviting, but we think chandeliers are going to take a back seat to oversize pendants this year. Not so long ago, pendants were used in smaller areas such as an entry or over a kitchen island (in groups, at that), but expect larger-than-life pendants to work their way over dining areas this coming year. We still love our chandeliers, but the pendant’s single light source is a nice change.”—Jean Liu
‘Celebrating the outdoors has never been more prevalent,’ says stylist Jody Hudson.
“I predict that classic, traditional design elements will be back in a big way in 2018! They’ve certainly never gone away entirely, but over the past few years, everyone has gone mad for modern. Given the uncertainty of our current political and social climate, it makes sense that people would gravitate to classic, sure-fire favorites to make their homes a true respite from the rest of the world. Get ready for antiques, traditional brown furniture, and printed fabrics such as floral chintzes to make their mark in the new year.”—Paloma Contreras
Quick: Name the design trends you’ve been hearing about over and over again in 2017. It’s pretty safe to say that millennial pink will top that list, mid-century modern is still kicking around, and, for better or for worse, shiplap became something of an HGTV-ified cultural phenomenon the way chevron was once the pattern du jour. (Though perhaps it’s safe to say that something has peaked when there are T-shirts emblazoned with #Shiplap available for sale on Etsy.) So what 2017 trends are on the way out? “Industrial chic has been on its deathbed for a while, but now it’s officially dead and buried,” says Timothy Corrigan. “And mid-century modern is the next style to go.” Nick Olsen decries the end of ombré fabrics and carpets, while Kathryn M. Ireland says that “black and white is out—there will be a shift to dark blue and milky white.”
“Beige interiors are banished, making way for color and pattern, and the forgotten ceiling is now a decorating playground ready to be wallpapered, lacquered, gilded, or plastered with abandon.”—Martyn Lawrence Bullard
“Chintz is making a big comeback. Using the same floral fabric on the walls, window treatments, and furnishings—think English country but updated. Lots of florals and colors that pop, like turquoise, apple green, and shocking pink.”—Kathryn M. Ireland
Graham & Brown launch Chelsea Flower Show-inspired wallpaper collection
“While we consider white kitchens beautiful, timeless, and classic, we predict they have reached the peak of popularity. In 2018, look out for darker, moodier, dramatic kitchens that will wow you with their sultry and saturated colors.”—Jean Liu
“Details are becoming more and more important in home design. Whether it is wood marquetry, tassel fringe, or intricate patterns, details are playing a more important role in all parts of interior design.”—Timothy Corrigan
As revealed by Jamie Butterworth, show plant manager at Hortus Loci.
This year’s trend is millennial – and more so millennial pink.
“In new homes and apartments, traditional dining rooms aren’t being used like they once were, especially in homes and apartments where open-concept living/kitchen areas are the norm. To maximize usable space, many people are converting the dining room into a library or media room. Homeowners and apartment dwellers are finding ways to create spaces designated for reading and watching TV.”—Suzanne and Lauren McGrath
“We’ll continue to see handmade ceramics dominate home accessories. In our tech-driven world, we all need handmade pieces in our lives! I expect to see these objects become even larger and more sculptural than before and in alluring, matte glazes.”—Peter Dunham
Stylish black interiors is the latest go-to trend on Pinterest
With Pantone naming their colour of the year Greenery, we just can’t get enough of green…
“I think we’re going to see a lot of yellow in 2018, particularly an earthy, ochre-y yellow. It’s a shade that will brighten a room but isn’t at all that ’70s yellow we remember. It’s a modern neutral that’s far from boring.”—Peter Dunham
Whether big or small, get some inspiration for your outdoor space.
“So many cotton velvets are now available, with greater durability and in more colors than ever before. This dates back to the yellow velvet sofa seen in Jenna Lyons’s Brooklyn brownstone many years ago, but now a velvet sofa suddenly feels attainable, and necessary.”—Suzanne and Lauren McGrath
From tropical plants and succulents to rare orchids and herbs.
“Gone are the all white subway-tile kitchen backsplash backgrounds. Today’s kitchens are designed with colorful, handmade ceramic tiles in a variety of colors and sizes, including squares. Tiles are thicker, and more rustic-looking overall.”—Suzanne and Lauren McGrath

16 Interior Design Predictions for 2018 (And What’s on Its Way out)
“We are seeing a big return to bright and clear colors . . . people are so over gray, beige, and greige!”—Timothy Corrigan
“[This year] will be dominated by pattern. Tropical vibes will be seen as a mainstay in design across the board with ’80s shapes and overscale upholstery taking place of the more tailored mid-century shapes seen prominently in the last couple of years.”—Martyn Lawrence Bullard
