Pinterest Predictions for Home Trends in 2018

New Year, New Home. With renovations or simple DIY projects on the brain for a new and improved space in your home, we’ve gathered a list of Pinterest predictions for the biggest home trends of 2018. We’ve taken the list and offered helpful tips on how to incorporate these trends into your home this year.

Mixed Metallic

Metal accents in a home have been popular for a few years now, but mixing metals is a new trend for 2018. Have fun with your décor and appliances by mixing hues like gold hardware, burnished copper accents and stainless-steel appliances. Decorating a bathroom, don’t shy away from mismatching your light fixtures and hardware.  


Updating your kitchen or bathroom? Create a unique look by covering walls, surfaces or a backsplash in terrazzo, a flat but complex texture popularised in the 1970s. If you’re not sure about the look, or simply want to add touches of terrazzo to your room, try finding small pieces like planters, candleholders or photo frames in terrazzo to brighten your space.  

Statement Ceilings

Statement ceilings can add a dramatic pop of colour to your space. For years, we were told never to paint a ceiling a dark colour for fear of making a room feel smaller. Well that advice has gone out the window with the trend for 2018 focused on patterned and dark ceilings. A funky piece of wallpaper or an unlikely paint colour can add tons of personality to your room.

Herringbone Patterns

The Herringbone pattern dates back to the Roman Empire and became extremely popular in men’s textiles in the 1940’s with Clark Gable often donning suits made of Herringbone wool. Today, the pattern has seen a resurgence in often seen in tiling and flooring in today’s modern homes. The pattern can be sourced in a multitude of materials from parquet, to wood effect tiles, to porcelain, and come in a variety of unique colours to suit any home. The pattern can add a classic yet modern element to your space.

Colourful Doors

Give your home a warm cheery feeling by painting the front door a bold colour. Dark royal blue tones, deep reds or bright yellows are especially popular. Don’t leave out the interior door either, they can create the foundation of your room’s colour palette in a unique and interesting way.

Patterned Plants

Plants have always been a popular element of décor through out a house, but this year, try getting a plant that has vibrant patterns and hues. Mixes of light and dark foliage can bring an interesting mix along with plants that have rich accent coloured leaves.

Large Wall Art

The gallery wall is no more, say hello to large art pieces that will disguise empty walls through out your home. Funky photography is
especially trendy this year.


Sage is the new grey tone for neutral colour schemes this year. In kitchens, a sage coloured cabinet or walls can add a rustic flair to
the room, or try using the colour in small touches around your house mixed with warm woods and live greens for a calming and stylish look.
