Color is taking a big turn for the new year, as Earth tones and natural, moody hues are key. While there are a few color predictions of the year that I am not crazy about,  I do love the colors that Cyndi from the Creativity Exchange has pulled from various sources for the top colors of 2019.

One of my favorite trend bloggers is Interior Designer Karen Wolf who follows and writes about trends often.  Her 2019 trend design blog was just released, and I am very excited about several of the trends she is forecasting. One of my favorites from Karen’s list is the use of mixing metals and not having just one metal throughout.  I have been implementing this concept in several of my recent projects and do love what mixed metals do for the versatility in a space!

If you are getting ready to remodel a bathroom, this article is helpful in showing the direction we are going with bathroom design in a very practical way.  The article reinforces that gray and white quartz and marble is NOT out and continues to be a strong influence in bathroom design.

In Kitchen design, technology and easy of living are big influences in dictating the trends.  Quartz continues to be a countertop of choice due to its durability and ease of cleaning, while color and mixed textures add to interest in the space. Color is making a resurgence on cabinets, and interesting details such as unique tile,  glass doors and open shelving continue to be important in Kitchen design.

Lastly, in furniture trends, I have to say how excited I am to see that quality, handcrafted furnishings are important again!    

“A return to handcrafted authenticity, especially when it comes to furniture and decorative arts versus buying mass produced pieces will be much more popular in 2019.”
