New year, new….trends?
2019 is here and with it, ample opportunity to refresh your home in new and exciting ways. Lowe’s trend experts are looking ahead to 2019 and what the year has in store for home and design trends.
“I’m so excited about the new styles and themes we’ll be seeing customers shop for this year,” said Caroline Harmon, Lowe’s trend and style expert. “From matte black to patterned pops of color, anyone can find a simple (and cost-effective) way to update their space and stay on-trend.”
Ready to bring your home into 2019? Try incorporating these five trends into your project plans:
From the Earth
Hygge, the Danish concept of being warm and cozy is still going strong.
On a budget? Faux looks are so good that you almost can’t tell- they give you the same feeling and get bonus points for durability!
Make a Statement With Lighting or Flooring
Lighting: Lighting is like the jewelry of a room and no space is complete without it. Add a hint of shine- soft gold or matte black for a trendy update. Mix metals. Go oversize. Hang a chandelier in unexpected places like the laundry room or bathroom. Find it at Lowe’s: linear chandeliers, chandeliers, table lamp
Outdoor Spaces Receive Some TLC
Decorating with rugs, pillows and other accent pieces completes the look, and you can have all the design and comforts of the indoors in your outdoor space.
If Walls Could Talk, They’d Say More is More
Whether it’s color, pattern, architectural detail, or all three, it’s time to go for it. And it could just be one wall, but why not go for all?
Deeper, moody shades are dramatic, but surprisingly peaceful. Neutrals with just a hint of color, like a soft peach or a light mauve feel very fresh. Add wallpaper to frame out a bed or spice up a powder room. Add architectural detail with molding, like wainscoting or a square paneled wall.
