I know that 2017 is only half over but I’m hearing decorating rumblings about what will be trendy and popular in 2018! Some things we love are predicted to keep going strong but some decor is talking on a hip-pier look. If you loved the 70’s or would like to live in them if you are too young to remember 2018 might be your chance! Let’s take a sneak peek of 2018 decor trends!
Now, don’t shoot the messenger! I’m only telling you what the “experts” are saying about decor on the horizon and what I think might be a new fun trend in the next new year.
Remember you should only decorate your home with what YOU love and certainly not all the forecasted trends of 2018! But I bet you will find at least one beautiful new-to-you decor style coming around the corner you would love in your home!
I am so happy to see this trend coming on strong! I love geometrics in home decor. It can be fresh or tribal. Earthy or upscale! If you add one thing new in 2018 make it something with a little geometric design… and do it in your way! Don’t you love love love this neutral tribal geometric pillow from Magnolia Home? See the pillow here.
Fringe is back. The image below shows a very prim and proper trim. I personally love a more tailored fringe. But if there is a little hippy living somewhere inside you, go crazy with fringed lamps, sofas, clothes, and even a fringed shawl hanging from the ceiling like a canopy!
We should be seeing lots of fringed decor in 2018.
Here’s a great on trend pillow from Pier 1. See it HERE.
The warmth and richness of real wood is back in a big way. Maybe not everything in a room but a beautiful hand cut wooden bowl or a chunky coffee table.
I still love painted furniture but I’m loving to see it mixed with neutrals and a great piece made from organic wood! I’m crushing on this gorgeous coffee table! LOVE the wood and metal with neutrals. See this coffee table HERE.
Do you notice the layered rug? Right on trend and hides are too! So beautifully done!
Be still my heart! I adore metallic home decor. I’m seeing much more coming in 2018. Brass is back in the bathroom and kitchen. And really everywhere else. But make sure it is unlacquered or rubbed or antiqued. Not too shiny!
Mix metals to your heart’s content too! Finally, we are being sensible and mixing these beautiful materials in decor! This streamlined side table would look amazing in almost any decor. I just love it. And guess what? Marble is still big too. Score!
HIPPY BO HO
If you love hippie, bohemian or gypsy looks you are going to love the trend of Hippy Bo Ho decor this year! I am seeing it in lots of products now and it will be even going stronger in 2018.
I don’t know if I will indulge in this style at StoneGable but who knows? I think this ottomen is perfection for a big splash of color!
I am a huge fan of the new look in wallpaper. It’s fresher, less fussy, bold, geometric forward and clean! I lean towards wallpaper that has lots of white space! So crisp.
If you have not hung wallpaper in awhile it is much easier to apply and remove than it was back in the day. And now we can get repositionable wall paper. Yes! Wallpaper that you can remove and put back up. Really amazing!
My hall bath and hallway are getting the wallpaper treatment in 2018!
A decade or so ago we would have said “jewel tones”. What goes around comes around but in a whole new fresh way! Yes, bold colors like royal and navy blue, mustard yellow and orange are back. Any very saturated color will show off in 2018.
You know I love neutrals but a pop of one of these amazing colors might be a good thing. These chairs would work great in my neutral home! I’ve been itching to add a little blue the the neutral mix!
Cheers! I love bar carts!!!! I have one on wheels and use it both indoors and out. Bar carts are a comeback classic and will be a standout, yet again, in the upcoming year!
The bar cart below is the one I have. It has a mirrored top that becomes a removable tray. Can’t get any better! The great thing about bar carts is you can find them at quite reasonable prices!
As many of you know, I have a zebra hide in my living room. It adds sass and surprise and fun to a rather formal area. I think hide rugs warm up a room and creates a welcoming space wherever they are used.
Don’t just think about putting a hide on the floor, but how about draping one over a chair or bench? You can see this beautiful rug HERE.
Oh yes, please! I am so attracted to tribal prints! It’s like they tell an ancient story. And anything hand woven feels like a gift from the hands that created it. Tribal prints have been big in fashion and now they are showing up strong in decor.
Another beautiful pillow from Magnolia Home. See it here.
Celebrate the street, town, county, state, country or the world you are from! Maps are going to be big… and little this year. Have one on a mug or on a wall! Just make sure to celebrate where you live! You can see this beautiful world map HERE.

Trends are fun and can liven up a room. Just remember not all of them will speak to you. I love trends and look at them as a way to refresh a space and keep it interesting. My home does not scream “trendy” but I hope it looks up to date. My personal way to use trendy things is to accessorize with them.
Here’s a look at my spin on some 2018 accents that might work in my home with my neutral furniture. The key to trends is to use them as a guide to refresh our homes. And most importantly we should find things we love and that we are comfortable with.
What do you hope to see in decor in 2018? What would you love to see come back?
