Along with celebrating an amazing year, we want to highlight and celebrate some of the most popular interior design trends of 2019!
We are heading towards the end of this year and about to burst into 2020. Since we have been celebrating 2019 in style and with many wonderful projects, we wanted to share some of the most popular design trends that we saw throughout 2019. We want to highlight how special this year was and to remember these trends. Just like fashion, so many styles and trends will be lost and forgotten if we don't take the time to remember them. Every new year brings new and exciting trends that can update your home and comfort. Sometimes we see the rise of drastic styles or vintage pieces. Other years are filled with surprise with what our clients want. What do you think were some of the biggest trends in the interior design world of 2019? What do you think will we see in 2020?
2018 was full of new-age technical trends, inspired by the digital and sleek scientific world around us. 2019 was all about a move back to the natural elements coming inside again. It was all about using natural materials that surround the home and celebrating them in the world inside. It was all about fresh and natural pieces and materials like stone, copper, granite, and concrete. This trend brought a peaceful, organic, and calming feeling inside the home. It reflected the world around the home or the homeowner's favorite place in the world. You no longer had to travel a long distance to find yourself in the most beautiful place you've ever seen. It came to life right inside the home.
Black and White Decor
This is one of the most timeless decorating trends of all time, we were so excited to see it's rise into popularity again. This has always been such a timeless choice, one that should always be considered when redecorating or desiging spaces in your home. It is easy to add to, will never go out of style, and is easy to add other trends to as they grow into popularity. This trend provides a yin and yang feel to any space, a sense of balance, and boldness to your home. We are excited to see how this trend will continue to grow in the years to come.
This was a new trend we found this year. It wasn't just used in floor patterns or something that was used to work into wallpaper or other small elements. It was a functioning trend that was focused on creating an accent design or piece to give the space a pop of color, to bring the space together, and make the room stand out dramatically in the home. We saw oversized patterns and very bold colors in these exciting designs.
This was a vintage re-purposing design trend that we saw come to life in 2019. It was so popular throughout the year, that it wouldn't surprise us if it came back again next year. This trend got it's inspiration from Farm Houses, and is a great addition to homes with families. It adds a great vintage touch to any room and a ton of personality!
This trend made its appearance for the first time this year since the late 1980's. One of the reasons we think these beautiful beds became popular again, is due to the popular rise in hotel inspired bedrooms. The self-care rage has also lead to the rise of creating the most comfortable oasis in the home, and this trend has added to it. With the incredible options available, you can find a style that will fit into any room and design, without being overwhelming.
We hope your 2019 was just as exciting and wonderful as ours. We loved sharing these trends with you, and we look forward to seeing what 2020 will bring into our lives and the homes of our clients.
You've put so much time into your home to make it yours, why not take the extra step to make each room in your home pop and have people walk away with the "wow" factor? That's when it's time to call in the pros and hire an interior designer.
Is an interior designer for you? We'd like to think so! But there can be quite a stigma that attaches itself to the idea of hiring a designer for your own home. It's hard to get out of the mindset that an interior designer is just for the rich and famous. Before we go on, you need to throw that idea out. Hiring an interior designer is an option for anyone, and should be considered an option for anyone that is building a home or wanting to redecorate. You still might be hesitant and wondering why hiring an interior designer is so important and what their skills and abilities can do for you that you wouldn't be able to do for yourself. In short, it's quite a bit. They can give you more than you realize, and save you more time and energy than you might guess.
To The Point
You put so much time and energy investing in your home. Why not take the opportunity to make it shine? It might be intimidating to think about hiring a professional interior designer, but they offer a purpose to everyone out there. If decorating isn't your strongest suit, if you need help creating the vision inside of your head without breaking the bank or possibly your home, or you just don't have the time and energy to make it come to life, that's when a designer can step in. Think of it as another investment for your home. You will be adding value to the home itself and quite possibly avoiding making expensive and painful mistakes if you try to decorate or remodel yourself. If you do decide to sell your house, a beautifully decorated home can sell faster and make it stand out against its competitors on the market. The decoration and design can help potential buyers see the true potential of each space inside the home, and they can see themselves living there clearly.
Time and Money
It's so easy to go out to your favorite home goods and furniture stores and pick out and buy everything you love without thinking about it. Impulse buys are so dangerous because the fear of not getting an item in time or forgetting what you've picked out is an easy trap to fall into. How many times have you had the opportunity to decorate a new home or room and the excitement takes over more than your bank account? It happens! With an interior designer, they can help you create a plan of action for each space, create a budget and stick to it, and keep the project going and finish it on time. You don't need to worry about carving out extra time after work or on the weekends to finish your decorating. You lose the stress and responsibility of the project and end up with your perfect dream space exactly on time. You aren't spending hours walking the isles of stores or scanning through hundreds of web pages to find exactly what you want. This will be in the hands of your designer, too. Interior designers also have connections to buyers, stores, and retailers that you would not. They can get deals, pieces of furniture or decorations, and materials that you might not even know exist or be able to buy. They can also get better deals and prices with their connections, saving you money and staying on budget. Say goodbye to impulse buying and spending, too. An interior designer knows exactly what they are looking for and where to find it. You also won't be worrying about how to put down grout for your beautiful floor tile, or learning how to put up wallpaper, or learning an intricate painting technique. Your designer already knows how to do that and how to get it done properly.
Nothing left Untouched
An interior designer provides another set of eyes to your home and for your ideas. They can make suggestions on how to make your dreams work, or offer suggestions you might have never thought of before. If they are hired during the process of building your home or while you're redecorating or redoing your home, they can communicate with your architect faster and in a way you might not be able to. They can see any details of the design or build that was missed, not finished, or forgotten about, and get them taken care of without you having to worry about it. In any construction or building process, you really wouldn't be involved. Your interior designer can be without getting in the way. They can catch these mistakes and know how to communicate with your architect properly. A designer can take care of any problems that might arise during construction or while the room is being decorated, helping the project stay on schedule.
Remember, an interior designer is a professional. They've gone to school for their craft and know what they're doing. It's their job to be up to date on trends, materials, and any kind of design that goes into decorating. They can help you discover what you want and they know how to communicate with you to get exactly what you want for your space. There also won't be any surprises when the project is finished. Since they know how to communicate with you, they know how to create the image you've mapped out for them.
Investing in an interior designer is an important part of any home. It's an investment that will give you your own beautiful unique space, save you a headache and money, and give your home value it might never have had before. Don't be afraid to say YES to the opportunity of a designer. They are here and waiting to give you the home of your dreams.
I am so happy that I got to visit High Point Market in October. There were so many interesting showrooms and cool trends.
I think the hottest trend this fall is black and gold, so have a little fun with it and add some glamour to your space. Another trend that I love is the animal print. I've seen it on many items such as poufs, accent pillows and throws. These items would definitely spice up any space. Also, classic and elegant interiors are always in style. Go for soft gray and beige colors with luxury fabrics such as velvet.
Lastly, blue and silver accents are my favorites! Bring them in your home this season for a stylish look.

I love adding some botanical touches into the dining room table setting. The earthy feel adds a calm and relaxing touch to the informal table.
