Home Decor Trends for 2019

For many of our new homeowners, they most look forward to decorating their home after they move in. If you’re designing or redesigning your home, here are some of our favorite home décor trends to watch for in 2019.


Warm Neutral Color Palette


Cavern Clay is the Sherwin-Williams 2019 Color of the Year. It’s time to embrace browns, beiges, and taupe as the base of your home’s color palette. This is a switch from the blues and greys of past seasons. Think rich tones like mocha and terracotta.


Emerald with Pops of Gold


For those who prefer a sophisticated look, you can’t go wrong with a bold statement wall in deep emerald green. This popular color is meant to pull us into the euphoric state we feel when we’re out in nature. Pops of gold fixtures and lighting add a luxurious touch.


Blackout Kitchens


Remember when everyone painted their kitchen cabinets white? In 2019, blackout kitchens will start to take over. Whether it’s a black center island base or black quartz countertops, home designers everywhere are embracing black in their kitchen designs.


Built-In Kitchen Seating


Filling in kitchen nooks with built-in seating is a big home design trend for 2019. Why not create a cozy space for the kids to eat breakfast? If you have a banquette window in your kitchen, it might be time to give it some love.


Metal Kitchen Shelving


With more and more homeowners embracing a minimalist lifestyle, many are choosing to eliminate top cabinets. Metal shelving has taken the place as the alternative to promote organization and beautiful dishware.


Creative Wallpaper


Using beautiful wallpaper as a design statement will be more popular in 2019. Watercolor, floral patterns, and colorful brushstrokes bring an artistic touch to a home’s design. If you’re a creative person, this is a great way to express your personal style.


Mismatched Furniture


Can’t afford or find a matching living room set? Good. Because mismatched furniture is definitely on trend. Curate your own set of dining room chairs. Buy what you love and pair it all together. Easy!
