As reliable as January sales and fad diets, a new year means marketeers making bold claims about new trends. Some are chin-strokingly questionable (we’re looking at you Pantone and your colour of the year). Pinterest’s round-up is wholly more sane and these are some home decor styles we hope to see more of in 2018.
Colourful doors: +121%
Paint can be pricey as heck. Rather than painting an entire room, try a statement front or interior door. Saves on Pinterest for colourful doors have increased by 121%, so they're here to stay for a while. We're talking canary yellow and cobalt blue to cheerfully welcome guests (who will inevitably Instagram it).
Resort-inspired decor: +269%
Why wait for a spa day to relax in luxey surroundings? A few small changes to your bathroom can transform it into a hotel-worthy escape. Rattan and spa-shaped accents are a quickfire answer to boutique-ify chez vous.
Terrazzo is that speckled, multi-coloured, 70s flooring everyone thought was horrific until about two years ago. It's been on the rise and 2018 is going to be the year that it's everywhere — yes on floors still, but also wallpaper, accessories, your dreams probably.
We're kind of suckers for house plants and we think you might be too. If not, why not? Now is the time to become a convert — and for the less than green-fingered, we got you. Plenty of faux versions are available to get the same urban jungle impact. Foliage easily adds a flash of colour, so little wonder that saves on Pinterest for 'patterned plants' have shown more than a fivefold increase.
