The start of a new year is a great time to start fresh. If one of your goals for the New Year is to give your home décor a facelift, we’ve rounded up 5 home décor trends that designers and taste makers are predicting will be popular in the coming year, so you’re home will be stylishly right on-trend. Some of these looks feel trendier than others, so even if you’re not a style-follower, you might see a classic look you like.
Blues have been a popular color in home décor for a few years now and this trend shows no sign of losing steam. Popular shades of this cool color include a bright Greek blue, deep almost black navy, and vibrant cobalt. There are many ways to bring these colors to your home. Try upholstering a chair in the rich navy velvet of P/Kaufmann Obsession Midnight Velvet or making throw pillows or curtains in Williamsburg Lightfoot Garden Sapphire or Dena Home Sweet Summer Blueberry.
2. Retro Colors
The mid-century modern look is holding steady in home décor and is growing with the increase of 1960’s colors. Tones like olive green, orange, and ochre yellow are being given new life in homes and in fashion. The Sunbrella Icon collection is the perfect example of this trend. Sunbrella’s latest upholstery collection, Icon is inspired by the Sunbrella archives and prominently features colors of the 1960’s and ‘70’s. Try a bold stripe like Sunbrella Pioneer Sunrise to create an authentic mid-century look.
A modern take on the 1980’s pastel palette will grow in the coming year with the big color for this trend being pale pink. These new pastels have a sophisticated feel in petal pinks, soft oranges, blues, and greens. We love the look of a pale rosy pink. Try P/Kaufmann Trouseau Petal, P/Kaufmann Sensation Petal, or P/Kaufmann Zoie Tutti Frutti fabrics for a grown-up pink for your home.
4. Olive Green
Olive green is becoming a popular color and it actually fits along with two larger trends. Olive will look great with a mid-century modern look and a 1960’s color palette, and it is also one of a number of warm tones that are seeing a lot of use. Other warm tones include rust, dusty mint, and eggplant. Our favorite olive fabrics are P/K Lifestyles Kent Sage, P/Kaufmann Sticky Wicket Tartan, and Sunbrella Carousel Limelite.
5. Nature Inspired
Natural elements are big in home décor from wood grain and floral fabrics to hair on hide and faux furs. We love fabrics inspired by nature especially the seaside (we are sailors after all!). To take the natural look up a notch, combine it with another popular look right now, watercolors. A fabric with watercolor florals or coral is the perfect, soft accent to just about any room. Try P/Kaufmann Sea Wonders Island or P/Kaufmann Wildflowers Rouge fabrics.
Of course, design isn’t all about what’s trending. It’s also about filling your home with colors, patterns and textures that you love and that reflect your personality. Find the perfect fabric for your personality at www.sailrite.com.
