emerging home decor trends from Pinterest’s 2018

Earlier this week, Pinterest released its 2018 Home Report. From more than 14 billion home ideas, it’s pinpointed (pun intended) 25 emerging home decor trends that are expected to take over our feeds in the coming months. While some ideas were commonplace — like open-concept interiors, which saw a search spike of 150 percent year-over-year — others surprised us. Take fringe, for example. Who knew the Art Deco-staple would be so popular in 2018? Read on for our top 12 home decor picks from the discovery platform’s latest report.

First there was hygge, then came wabi-sabi, and now we’ve got lagom — yet another lifestyle concept that’s difficult to pronounce (for the record, it’s lah-gohm). Searches for the Swedish word meaning “just the right amount” were up 905 percent. The trend is all about balance, encouraging practitioners to cut down on clutter, streamline their to-do list, and utilize functional furniture pieces.

A relic of the Art Deco period, fringe (which saw a boost of 275 percent) is now being used to accessorize light fixtures, sofas, ottomans and more. Searches for wool and leather also saw an uptick in traffic — consider these organic, tactile fabrics for your next reupholstering project.

An apartment without a closet is no longer a deal-breaker. Pinners are designing their own storage systems using floating shelves, galvanized pipes and freestanding dressers. This DIY solution is up 126 percent year-over-year, and can be applied to spaces both big and small. Convert a spare bedroom into the walk-in closet of your dreams or display a few of your favorite pieces on a chic garment rack.

Traditional Indian hand block printing is a labor of love. Dating back to the 12th century, the practice involves dipping a carved block into colorful dye and stamping it onto cotton fabric (by hand, of course). Searches for ‘block prints’ have surged 127 percent — little wonder considering the undone, handmade quality of these decor items.

Consumers are growing tired of the all-white aesthetic. For years, we’ve been fed images of sparkling white kitchens, minimalist living rooms, and sterile, subway-tiled bathrooms. In a dramatic turn of events, decor enthusiasts are now embracing bold colors like red (+217%), dark blue (+139%) and hunter green (+209%).

Pink and purple rugs used to be reserved for nurseries (and maybe your grandma’s bathroom), but not anymore. Vibrant and vintage-looking area rugs are up a whopping 236 percent. Keep the aesthetic boho, rather than childish, by opting for magenta, deep indigo and teal hues with a washout design.
