Hello 2018, YOU’RE LOOKING QUITE LAVISH!
The trend toward maximalism is resplendent with luscious lavender, gorgeous geometrics, big, beautiful florals, and color-crazy kitchens.
Maximalism: more is more! Make way for the luxury and elegance of violets and lavenders — Pantone named “Ultra Violet” as the color of the year. Try it in a single chair — or paint the town. • Go for broke with color, collections, layers of window coverings, texture, embellishment, comfort and wildly eclectic style. A staunch minimalist? Try just one wall, fill it from floor to ceiling with art and objects. • New kitchens move from white-on-white to color, with blue and green cabinetry taking center stage. • Botanicals are breaking big, covering walls, furniture, and more. • Geometrics are both retro and reinvigorating, with circles coming on especially strong. Do-it-for-me! Why do it yourself when having the experts do it for you has become so affordable? Some projects are great fun to DIY, but when it comes to precise measurements and installation, put a pro on the job. What a relief. Stay flexible One big trend is perfectly practical: overall interior flexibility. Stretch the space you have with furniture or design elements that serve two purposes, like a coffee table that pops up into a dining table, or a murphy bed that turns an office into a guest room.
