New year new you? Is redecorating your North London home your new year’s resolution? Every year brings more options for materials, finishes and ideas to bring into our interiors. If you’re ready to try something new, consider the following design trends.

Wall Art
According to Pinterest, pins for wall art were up 637% in 2017 so it’s little wonder bare walls are officially out, and wall art is officially in for 2018.

Out with the fifty shades of grey this year will bring more soft pastels, gentle colours that appear in nature, and oak-hued wood finishes, these pastels aren’t pure but rather have been muddied with earthier tones in the mixing process

Say goodbye to painting your walls with solid colour and say hello to creating shapes with colour blocks instead, while Ombre walls, stencils and other paint effects will be rising in popularity also.

Wood Finishes
A mix of weathered woods, natural materials and contrasting earthy tones all feature in the enduring rustic trend. Light brown shades of natural wood are modern and appealing, perfect for small spaces. Dark wood is one of modern interior design trends 2018 which bring delicious chocolate brown hues into interiors giving a touch of luxury to room decorating.

Kitchens & Bathrooms
Last year, satin brass made its takeover of kitchens. This year, look out for matte black in bathrooms as well as kitchens. Homeowners looking for a statement-making look that’s contemporary and complements a variety of materials and styles are embracing this tough, versatile finish.

Simplicity is another trend in lines and shapes. Geometric, clean and elegant designs with slightly curved angles have the highest value in modern interiors. Minimalist, Scandinavian, and high-tech styles, as well as an influence of retro-modern designs, are stylish options for interior design in 2018.

Modern Bedrooms
You can’t decorate your way to a good night’s sleep. In other words, if you’re looking for a calm, relaxing bedroom — ideal for a restful night — you don’t want the space dripping with ornate decor, busy patterns or eye-opening colour. Instead, a pared down, verging-on-minimalist look that incorporates soothing neutrals, soft fabrics and simple, functional pieces is the direction homeowners are heading.

There’s just something about a home that’s well-lit. It’s livelier and has a certain character you can’t deny. This is the reason why you need to install huge windows to let more of the sun’s light into your home. Your interiors will benefit from the additional brightness to drive any trace of gloom away. Plus, everything will seem warmer and being motivated will be no problem at all.

At the same time, using window frames that have a minimalist design will really look astounding inside your home. These frames highlight your windows without causing any further distractions. This design element will really look amazing and complement your outdoor landscapes or gardens well.

Bedroom plants can help you sleep and vibrant foliage can help you stay on trend in 2018. Organics will be a hot topic when it comes to interior design circles. Plants and flowers, make your home have an outdoor feel. Just make sure to water them daily and check out for any sign of pests to prevent any trouble in your residence.

No matter what you choose in your home, any of these interior design trends will certainly add a touch of style, luxury, and relaxation to your place. Don’t get left behind and start planning right now.
