10 Trends That Are Taking Over Homes In 2018

Ready or not, 2018 is around the corner. And it's not coming quietly, either. Designers and brands expect home decor to be bolder than years before, with vivid jewel tones and luxe velvet and brass balanced out with organic accents. As always, stick with what you love, regardless of what's in or out. But if your New Year's resolution is to refresh your home (whether with a new coat of paint or a pretty piece of furniture), here are the top trends to try—along with some you should skip.
Doubtful of so much drama? Consider the colors' calmer cousins, especially in restful rooms like the bedroom. Lilac, for example, is a watered-down version of violet that's so versatile and feminine Erika Woelfel, color expert for Behr Paint, is calling it the new millennial pink.
Again, rather than stark-white kitchen cabinets, expect to see warm grays, blues, and creams, as well as wood grain tones.
"Floral prints are always 'in' if you ask Anthropologie," says Frederick. "Rather than a traditionally feminine look in 2018 they feel especially fresh and more interesting styled in a casual bohemian way. Juxtaposing florals with organic textures and neutral palettes evokes a new kind of elegance that is appealing."
Of course, if furniture covered in florals feels a bit too risky, you can always ease into the trend with classic bloom-covered bedding.
