Designing and decorating a house is one of the most exciting aspects of homeownership. Implementing interior design ideas that reflect the lifestyle and personality of the homeowner is a challenging task. With this in mind, here are some design trends for 2019:

Mixed Metals. Past trends have dictated matching metals for hardware fixtures such as cabinets, sinks, and chairs. However, a trend in 2019 is to mix up the hardware. A faucet may be brushed silver, but the nobs on the cabinets may be brass or bronze. Mixed metals add a great deal interest to a space.

Natural Elements. The popularity of agrarian style houses has encouraged the implementation of natural elements into the interior design of homes. Natural materials like wood and stone are frequently utilized for flooring and accent walls. Other trendy natural features include light fixtures made from tree branches and chairs made from petrified wood.

Concrete Accents. Concrete kitchen tables, sideboards, and other accent pieces are on-trend for 2019. Concrete pieces are incredibly durable and provide a clean, simple look. The use of geometric concrete tiles throughout the design of a home is also a growing trend.

Vintage Lighting Fixtures. Everything once considered old becomes new again when it comes to light fixtures in 2019. Antique pendants and sconces are all the rage this year for kitchen and dining room lighting fixtures. Additionally, the brass and copper finishes of yesteryear are becoming increasingly more popular.

Compelling Artwork and Wallpaper. Home design is trending toward more colorful palettes meaning that artwork and wallpaper choices should be bold statement pieces. Wallpaper should have exciting textures and contain vibrant prints. Design trends also encourage homeowners to place art or photographs on wallpaper.

Canopy Beds. Although these beds never went entirely out of style, there’s been a resurgence in demand for canopy beds in 2019. The nostalgic and straightforward design of these beds makes them an attractive choice when decorating any bedroom. Canopy beds come in a plethora of styles and colors to suit a wide range of preferences.

Overall, home design trends for 2019 are bold and unique. Mixed metals, vintage lighting, and bold wallpaper are all fun and exciting trends that are here to stay. The incorporation of any or all of these trends will bring life and vibrancy to any home.
