Is a home redesign in your new year’s resolution?  I’ve rounded up the hottest trends of 2018 that you might consider in your next interior design project.

Kitchen Colors:  We are moving away from the white, antiseptic kitchens resembling medical labs and moving towards colors, real colors, that provide depth and warmth to the busiest place in the home.

Statement Ceilings:  I’ve blogged before on the often ignored ceiling as a design surface.  Bold colors, coffers, wood ship lap and wallpaper are just a few elements that can bring a wow factor to a room.

Matte Black:  In kitchen and bath trends, matte black fixtures are on the fast track to replace the polished and satin nickel finishes that have dominated the market the last few years.

Delta Faucets

Olive Green: While not the Pantone color of the year, the earthy sophisticated aesthetic of olive green is a super star in the design world.  Green is making a comeback in many ways and this soft, natural color complements the cozy home trend for 2018.
