Decorating tips to make your new home on trend for 2019

Buying a new home is an exciting experience. After you’ve moved in, you’ll probably be looking for decorating ideas to make your new space your own.

Decorating trends come and go from year to year, and 2019 is no exception. Design experts say trends that were popular last year—such as rose gold accents, gallery walls, and the industrial look—are on their way out, while new colors, textures, and styles are becoming more fashionable.

Here are a few decorating ideas that are on the rise for 2019. Of course, the best style for you is what makes you feel comfortable and happy, and helps you enjoy your new home.

Decorating Trends

Mix metals and textures. Add depth to your room by using a variety of textures—canvas, linen, and even velvet—to contrast with metal accents, such as copper and brass.

Go green. Not only is the color green making a comeback, but “green” as a concept—with natural, sustainable materials—is even more popular for 2019.

Bold colors and patterns. Florals are making a comeback, in large, exaggerated proportions, as well as geometric patterns that make strong statements. Colors in rich hues—such as pink, red, green, and yellow—are also more popular and will make furnishings and d├ęcor in muted colors pop.

Brass is back. Everything comes around again, and that 1980s fixture favorite is back for 2019. After a few years of stainless steel and brushed nickel accents, brass provides a warmer alternative.

Keep it natural. Materials that reflect your home’s surroundings are popular for 2019, including stone, granite, and concrete. These natural elements provide a sense of serenity. The earthy red-orange of copper accents is also a growing trend.

Black and white. It’s a classic color combination that really never goes out of style. For 2019, the focus is on contrast—balance (white) and boldness (black).

Artisanal accents. In a world of mass-produced items, it’s nice to have a few handmade accents. This year, add some artisanal pieces to your home—handmade items that are unique and one-of-a-kind, flaws and all.
