While 2018 saw an influx of tech inspired décor, experts predict that an emphasis on natural materials such as stone, wood, copper and granite will be incorporated into homes. There will also be more environmentally friendly and sustainable furnishing and decorations. These elements can provide an organic ambience to your home.

Floral Patterns

Floral patterns are making a comeback in 2019. Instead of the typical floral patterns, experts believe that the 2019 florals will be bold and abstract providing bright eye-catching pieces that will provide a timeless look in your home. Expect to see floral patterns in chairs, wallpaper, and bedding.

Bold Color Pallets

As Pantone announced its color of the year, Living Coral, it may come as no surprise that bold color pallets are increasing this year. Instead of using muted neutrals around your home, try to incorporate richer hues to make your furnishings pop in an open floor concept home.  Whether it’s a bright couch, eye-catching wall or decorating piece, the bold colors to look for are dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and rich greens.

Darker Kitchens

As open kitchens with large islands continue to thrive, the all-white kitchen may be out in 2019. Instead, many homeowners are embracing darker hues in their kitchen with their cabinetry to add a robust feel to their kitchen.

Made from a mix of glass, granite, marble and quartz chips in polished cement or raisin, Terrazzo is usually found in hospitals and airports. However, these large patterns are popping up in homes from showers to back splashes to coffee tables.
