2018 Décor Trends That Will Light Up Your Life
2018 is here!
As we usher in a New Year, it’s also time to usher in a new set of trends. From fashion and food to architecture and advertising, the design world is setting its sights on what styles will be incorporated in our daily lives. And interior décor is no different.
Luckily, you don’t have to completely renovate your home to stay on top of the latest trends. Simple upgrades and decorative accents can make a big impact and reflect the “new you” this New Year! And what better place to start than the lights.
Warm, masculine, and definitely sexy, industrial chic just keeps getting more popular. While it used to be reserved for converted lofts and factories, industrial chic is now being seen in all kinds of buildings – both urban and rural.
Lighting is a great place to start if you are looking for a soft introduction to the retro style. They’re not extreme, have a certain comfy feel to them and you can find plenty of updated designs in the market.
Use it in the kitchen, above the dining area or as wall lighting. You can even use the fixture itself as a piece of art on the wall or the centrepiece of your home. For maximum effect, get a system of lights rather than single bulbs.
Nature has always been the perfect inspiration for art, fashion and interior design. We see it in natural elements, such as wood, stone and plants generating a soothing, tranquil and inviting space.
But when it comes to lighting, don’t be fooled by the idea of delicate, nature-inspired woven lampshades. This year’s trends are moving toward more dramatic, contemporary designs made of raw materials, such as untreated wood. Use it to add an informal slightly artful feel to a space.
Go Glamourous with Gold
In contrast to the latest industrial décor trends, the last few seasons have seen a spike in the use of softer metallic colours. Homeowners have fallen in love with the homely, warming hues of soft gold that work so well for contemporary décor.
Soft gold lighting fixtures come in a variety of styles and designs. For overhead lighting, look for fixtures that accentuate the gold. You can also check for fixtures that complement the soft gold with other soft colours like grey or matte silver. Use soft gold lighting to attract attention to specific corners or areas of your living room.
Lighting is one of the most crucial elements of your home décor, and getting it right means more than just practicality – it means creating the right atmosphere. Let our experienced home décor specialists lighten your home with the latest lighting trends.
