4 Fabulous Interior Design Fads that Made 2018
As the curtains slowly begin to close on 2018, Kingston Brass would like to reminisce on the swanky interior design trends that were signature to the year. The year was characterized by a number of events and crazes that will go down in history, from the women’s empowerment marches, South Korean Winter Olympics, the rise of Instagram influencers, North Korea and South Korea’s peace treaty, IHOB, Mark Zuckerberg’s trial, to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. So after scrolling through Pinterest, HGTV, and Airbnb, we thought we would do our part and look back upon the best interior design fads of 2018!
- Recycled and vintage pieces. Throughout 2018, homeowners hit up their local Goodwill for vintage furniture pieces and accessories to upholster and refurbish to give their homes some character. Unique statement pieces allowed creativity and personalization and were definitely the favorites for the year.
- Plants. Houseplants have seemingly decorated households for years now. However, 2018 took this trend to a new level. Houses swamped with houseplants beautifully emulated DIY jungles and it was absolutely enthralling. Nightstands, tables, desks, floors, shelves, and countertops were covered with greenery and brightened homes all over. Although 2019 is just around the corner, it’s never too late to hope on such an adored trend!
- Open shelving. There is no better way to display kitchen necessities as a means of decoration than with an outward arrangement on open shelving. Kill two birds with one stone by storing your china while also characterizing your kitchen.
- Metallic finishes. Finishes like satin brass, Naples bronze, and vintage brass enlivened homes in 2018, and we were a big fan. Homeowners that sought to complement their vintage homes chose these metallic kitchen and bathroom fixtures, faucets, and accessories to furnish a rustic flair without overreaching like certain polished finishes. If you seek to sustain this timeless trend into 2019, Kingston Brass provides fixtures in these finishes that are aged to the eye but are brilliantly enduring, guaranteed by the state-of-the-art technology within.
Although the long year of 2018 is gradually coming to an end, there is no better way to celebrate the ups and downs by commemorating everything that symbolized it. Let us commend these happenings and fads, and bring good fortune (and maybe even some of these ageless 2018 interior design trends with the help of Kingston Brass) into the next year.
