Modern style living roomInterior design is more than just “what looks good.” Yes, your home needs to have great appeal, but professional designers look beyond the form. Philkeandesigns.com shares that great design is “intuitive, practical, and timeless.” Achieving all three can make all the difference in creating a space that “rises” as you come into the door.

In addition to seeking the expertise of designers to come up with an aesthetically pleasing and functional home, you can look to the following design trends to guide you:

1. Wabi-Sabi

This popular Japanese adage celebrates the beauty of imperfection. In a world beset by the pursuit of unrealistic standards, some homeowners find comfort and beauty for natural and timeworn pieces. As people move toward a greater appreciation for asymmetry and embrace natural materials, designers expect “wabi-sabi” to become a massive trend for 2018.

2. Off-Black

Black used to be too bold and unforgiving for interiors, but designers have come up with a way to bring it back into homes. Much like when “off-white” took off as an alternative to stark, blinding whites, the off-black uses the chalky, softer versions of the shade. This is a perfect backdrop for almost any color and can enhance any interior style.

3. House Jungle

Plants are creeping back into the interior design mania, mostly because of millennials who want to fill every corner of their homes with botanical items. This “jungle fever” inspired design trend is set to become a national obsession this year. The mini potted succulents and large planters offer a pop of color and a breath of fresh air into any room.

4. Peach

Blush pink was in abundance throughout 2017, but for this year, the revival of peach is on the horizon. Fuse the delicate tone with a bold statement to bring a twist to this classic favorite.

The emerging styles of this year focus on combining old and new ideas for unique and timeless interior spaces. Be inspired by these trends and bring an exciting change into your living space.
