New Years Resolutions Interior Design Decorating.


Helling is also making an effort to slow down a bit. “My resolution is to be more disciplined in the number of projects that I initiate. There are so many talented people I want to work with and so many wonderful product design ideas that I always want to do all of them now. In the past few years, I’ve run into a wall by trying to do 20 projects at one time. This year I’m going to do my best to exercise restraint and devote more time to fewer projects. It will be interesting to see how long this resolution lasts!”

In the midst of unending inspiration, it’s important to find times of peace, too. “In 2017 I would like to take time to slow down and enjoy,” says Chicago-based Johnstone. “Sitting by the fire and reading a great book, cooking a good meal, or really any time at home where I slow down.”

Nievera has one very specific goal, befitting someone who creates gardens for a living. “Somehow, I have never visited the Italian gardens and villas surrounding Florence. This deficiency will be remedied in 2017!”

  • Keep only essential furniture in your bedroom like a bed, nightstand or two and a bench or daybed.
  • Move the TV and other electronics to another room.
  • Keep decor and personal objects on display in the bedroom to a minimum.
  • Move the dresser into the closet or hallway.

Using bold colors in the home, a design trend seen all over the place this year (and not going anywhere soon), is a sure way to quickly revamp an interior design with exciting impact. While monochromatic color schemes and muted colors are wonderful palette options, maybe 2017 is the year to shake things up a little! For instance, Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue Paint is an elegantly aged option for bathrooms or accent bedroom walls. While paint is an easy design change, it is more of a commitment than the pops of color accent pillows, throws, or vases can bring. 

“My New Year’s design resolution is to bring back some drama! I feel like I’ve been working in a world of neutral tones and straight lines,” says Jeffers, whose San Francisco home features bold and moody color choices. “Don’t get me wrong—I love neutrals, but I’m ready to reintroduce some curve, some pattern, some drama!”

Christina of CG Home Interiors I take an unconventional approach to New Year’s resolutions and choose a word to focus on each year that applies to multiple areas of my life. This year I chose “simplify.”

5 New Year’s Design Resolutions to Ring in a Stylish Home for 2018

Here’s another great post on how to introduce vibrant color in your home.

For Huh, conscious design takes precedence in two forms: “I resolve to be more environmentally conscious in my work by trying to limit the amount of building waste we create, support local makers, use plumbing products that consider water conservation, and I’m also advocating induction cooking wherever we can,” says the New York-based talent. “We don’t need to burn gas to be gourmet cooks! I am also hoping to use more products created by women-owned micro businesses, especially textiles and embroidery work. Studies have shown that when women make money, they tend to spend it on their children’s educations and their communities. This reinvestment leads to open minds, better health, better participation in the global community.”

Everyone has a little voice inside that encourages the decisions right for them. Practice listening to it when it comes to the interior design of your home. If a sofa seems too large in the store for your studio apartment, trust your gut without making an expensive error. Then, double check measurements to make sure or get guidance from an online interior designer.

For McAleer, a growing family means an evolving home. “My resolution this year is to turn what is now a very small playroom into a homework room with built-in, high-gloss desks, wallpaper on the walls and ceiling, and great lighting,” says the founder of Annsley Interiors in Boston. “I am pretty excited about the project, but my nine- and six-year-old daughters and I are having a very hard time agreeing on a scheme!”

These will keep your design inspiration and motivations going!

With a fresh year under way and new projects on the horizon, we’re ready and excited to start working on our interior design goals for 2018. As we create our own wish list for getting one step closer to that dream home, we asked some of our favorite designers where their focus is this year.

Traditional is no longer the most popular design style — contemporary design is. The clean lines and uncluttered feeling is more peaceful and relaxing. Try to make your bedroom more contemporary — the new look will feel inviting and you may even get better rest without all the distractions from clutter, objects and furniture around you.

The Copes have earned design acclaim and a loyal following for their richly textural and technically innovative wall coverings. In the New Year, though, they plan to look deeper than aesthetics and technique. “In 2017 we aim to explore the creation of work that has social meaning and contributes somehow to the greater good of humanity. We hold aesthetics so highly, and that will not change—it will simply be elevated by purpose.”

Nicolle of Pella® Windows and Doors My interior design resolution would be to mindfully edit. All well-loved homes have a tendency to collect things over time – especially when you have a serious love of furniture like I do. But, it’s time to begin removing pieces that no longer fit the function or aesthetic of our current home, and layer in new design pieces that bring joy and comfort, and complement our current space.

Design resolution 2: I will do something about that blank wall

There is a de-cluttering movement that speaks to home dwellers as a way of making space for beauty and a zen mentality. After purging items that are holding both physical and emotional space, relying on smart storage solutions like adding boxes to house smaller items (i.e. tees, scarves) contributes to design happiness.

Matthew of Matthew Caughy Interiors Art is such an important element to finish a space. My New Year’s resolution is to search out and support new and up-and-coming artists. There are many innovative ways to find new artists, from social media to online platforms. I look forward to discovering new pieces to fill my client’s walls and maybe a few for my own as well!

pA living room by Shelly Johnstone.p

Creating a space like no other and calling it home is like anything worthwhile: a labor of love. And, like anything of importance (our health, our relationships, our work), inspired motivation is extremely helpful. Luckily, New Year’s resolutions offer the cyclical opportunity to make improvements in these areas as well as our environments.

For Cherny, who recently outfitted a room for New York’s Holiday House, 2017 invites bold choices. “We’re starting off 2017 feeling emboldened and are resolved to keep that spirit alive in our designs throughout the year. One of our projects has an impressive contemporary art collection, which lends itself perfectly to using more audacious color and pattern choices. Think jewel-tone walls with Pierre Frey leopard-print fabric!”

Abercrombie wants to push the envelope this year. “In 2017 I will encourage my clients to take more risks and think outside the box. It’s easy to hold back, but I find when we push the envelope, better design evolves.”

A room full of decor and furniture isn’t necessarily well designed. Part of creating a designer space is selecting quality pieces that have a long functional and stylistic lifeline. Taking the time to read customer reviews and shop around can make the difference when finding the perfect piece.

For London-based Van Breda, the New Year will bring new materials. “I’d like to keep to our design ethos of beautifully appointed and detailed pieces but add in some fun with new materials such as lacquered silk and bold colors in vivid shapes and silhouettes.”

Marie of Marie Flanigan Interiors This year, I’m dedicating more time to travel! It’s so important to pull away from the daily grind, embracing the inspiration that comes with new experiences. Reinvigorating my passion through the sensations of a newfound destination, while curating found objects, and familiarizing myself with extraordinary craftsmen will enhance both my life journey and my ability to serve clients; and that’s what I call a win-win!

Want to go a step further? Embrace minimalist interior design styles where openness and visual tranquility are the expected results.

For Nussbaumer, whose extensive travels are documented in a recent book, the New Year will bring even more passport stamps. “This year is all about collaboration and travel for me. I’d like to seek out and discover treasures and artisans in parts of the world I haven’t fully explored. In the spring, I plan to explore southern India, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar, where I’ll be looking for inspiration for my fabric. Later in the year, I’ll head to Argentina and Bolivia in search of antiques and silver craftsmen.”

For the cofounder of Brooklyn-based design firm the White Arrow, there’s inspiration in reading and in fellow creative women. “My resolution is to read and learn more—there never seem to be enough hours in the day (especially since I just had a baby!), but I’d like to find time for more books. In particular, I’d like to read books focused on women artists and designers like Andrée Putman, Eileen Gray, and Gae Aulenti.”

6 Interior Design Resolutions for the New Year Here’s a toast to making resolutions you can actually stick with.

“This year I want to take risks, be courageous and confident in color choices,” says Berman, cofounder of Workshop APD, which devises residential and hospitality projects across the country. “When color is used well, it can be electric, though all too often it’s used poorly. Innovation starts when you step outside your comfort zone.” For cofounder Kotchen, the New Year is one for inspiration: “In this digital age we all develop habits for obtaining design-related information, whether it be from favorite websites, magazines, Instagram pages, or professional contacts. In the New Year I’d like to broaden my network of references and add a new source to my portfolio of inspiration every two months.”

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet? As 2017 goes out, so do some outdated styles and old trends. After careful review of what the international furnishings shows, top interior designers and home magazines all have to say, here are the latest modern home design trends of what’s in store for 2018 — and why you should add them to your design to-do list for 2018.

For the Charleston, South Carolina–based designer, the New Year is a time to consider looking more to the past. “The most inviting homes are a collection of memories. Therefore, this year it is my goal to take the time to search: to travel, dig, and shop small and unexpected antiques stores and salvage shops near and far to integrate more vintage finds in all of my spaces, including my own home.”

With a fresh year under way, last year’s trends behind us, and new ones on the horizon, it’s prime time for setting goals for 2017. As we mull over our own New Year’s resolutions, we’ve turned to some of our favorite designers and creatives to hear what they hope to achieve in the year to come. From travel to risk-taking to humanitarian activism, there’s no shortage of inspiration to be had from these trendsetters’ goals. Here’s to a creative 2017.

“Our 2017 resolution is design with narrative,” say the sisters and cofounders of Block Shop, a Los Angeles–based textile studio that creates patterns inspired by both Indian tradition and California cool. “Our work with a talented set designer recently taught us that having a scene and even characters in mind at the outset of a new collection makes for a much richer, more original design process.”

Design by Decorilla Interior Designer, Joyce T.

“Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.”

  • Add low-profile, modern bookcases to create a large wall unit.
  • Create a gallery wall of objects or art.
  • Hang large-scale wall art.
  • Lean a large floor mirror against a blank wall.

Not sure the yellow accent wall is quite right? Benjamin Moore suggests: Use a color from a pillow or your favorite artwork, for example, as your inspiration. What is the most appealing color to you in that piece? Does it work with the main wall color? Would you enjoy living with accessories in that same color? Whatever shade you choose, an accent wall allows you to express your own unique, confident design style. So grab a paint brush and let your imagination go!

  • Make sure all rooms you use regularly have two lighting options: overhead and a table or floor lamp.
  • Replace old light bulbs with modern LED or fluorescent versions. Choose light bulbs that replicate natural sunlight by looking for their color temperature rating. At or above 4,500 is closest to daylight.
  • Replace old light fixtures with modern LED styles.

Minimalism is cool, but cold, blank walls with no personality aren’t. With all the new options in removable wallpaper, even a renter can do something new and different. Besides wallpaper and paint, here are some other ways you can liven up a blank wall:

Molly of The Gingham Apron My resolution for 2018 is decluttering spaces (as is probably true for many others), and getting back to the basics and purpose of each space. I want to be more efficient with my use of space.

“My New Year’s design resolution is to explore more,” says the New York–based founder of an eponymous design firm. “In 2017 I’m traveling to both Paris and Norway in search of cultural inspiration. I want to incorporate a greater sense of discovery in my work by visiting ateliers, museums, and art galleries while also meeting new furniture artisans and craftspeople. I plan on folding these experiences into new and exciting projects.”

The future is sustainability. Being mindful of natural resource depletion, there are an increasing number of design options that are taking the eco friendly movement to heart. Selecting products using reclaimed wood or investing in energy conserving methods are the forward thinking staples that make for a perfect interior design New Year’s resolution to implement.

If you’ve ever had a conversation with a child then you may notice their way of thinking is simple and untainted – black and white, if you will. That is how I chose my word for 2018. I need to reel it in and keep things as uncomplicated and simple as possible to allow time for business and personal growth. Since I am a visual person, this starts with my home and the spaces I create as a designer where I am taking more of a minimalistic approach. There is something so serene yet invigorating when you look at a photo of, or enter, a well-balanced, carefully planned and uncluttered space.

Speaking of decor accents – it’s often the little things that make the biggest difference. One interior design New Year’s resolution can simply be budgeting for a fresh collection of decorative items. This is a budget savvy way to introduce new color, pattern, texture, and finish to a space. Get playful with geometric designs or typography on pillows or change up a lamp base with a new shape of shade or add a vintage copper tray to the coffee table. Such items are nice investments since they can be reused in varied spaces or with other combinations.

Houston-based Kehoe is over neutrals. “I look forward to the challenge this year of encouraging neutral-loving clients to embrace color as a positive influence in their lives.”

Designers and magazines across the board are calling for more color for 2018 and beyond. Although monochromatic white and grey spaces will always have a place in contemporary design, adding splashes of color by using accessories or paint is an easy and quick way to modernize a home.

The international furniture fairs featured the return of soft, inviting fabrics like velvet, microsuede and more. Sparse is out and luxuriously cozy is in, so add soft throws, a silky rug, a new accent chair in a plush fabric or splurge on luxurious microfiber bedding that’s soft to the touch.

For Galullo, whose studio has designed office spaces for the likes of Google and Dropbox, 2017 is about unity. “I rarely make New Year’s resolutions, but in 2017 it feels necessary to start the year with positive, aspirational, and forward-thinking goals. Design is a powerful tool to bring people together, to bridge disparate ideas and make meaningful connections. I resolve to use it to its fullest capacity in 2017. Put simply: I resolve to build no walls.”

For New York designer Fink, exploring the hallowed institutions of his home city is a top priority. His resolution? “To spend as much time as time allows in the Met and the Frick.”
