Trending Again

While the home should reflect its owner no matter what the latest come-and-go trends are, we’re all aware of when our abode is not the latest and greatest. But we may be trendier than we realize.

Hold off on redecorating for a minute. Many outdated styles are expected to make big comebacks in 2018. Brass is a perfect example. It made a brief appearance in 2016 and is predicted to return much stronger in the coming months. Have brass accents already? You’re ahead of this re-trend. Avocado Green and Harvest Gold are perhaps the most surprising of the upcoming old-again-is-new-again designs. Its popularity is credited to the snuggly yet chic nostalgia it brings. For those not ready to embrace bright colors, the on-again-off-again look of all-black & white is both vintage and enduring. Don’t get rid of your oversized furniture, either. Just when you thought it was dated, it’s back, especially in elegantly antique atmospheres for classicists. Remember that great-great-aunt who had framed Chinese kimonos on her wall? Next year’s Art Gallery Walls will range from fashion, memorabilia, art and photos used as an accents or for overall room designs. Definitely gives you something to write home about!
