Furnishing and living are, of course, very individual and orientated to personal needs, and yet, or precisely for this reason, you can guess the emerging trends. For today’s article, we have just this task for you: to familiarize our loyal readers with the existing ones for 2017 and the emerging 2018 trends in interior design.
No panic! Nothing will happen in a creative sense, which you may not know. The new element in the tendencies which are constantly emerging is undoubtedly the Zeitgeist. Let us look at what the momentary spirit of home decor and decorations in 2018 promises. What are the 2017 trends that continue to exist and what will be new in the area of interior design next year?
Living with system / modular furniture
If the function determines the design and you want to meet your needs and wishes, there is nothing better than having a smart furniture system at home. Some may remember the late 70s and early 80s, others think of Lego stones and Ikea furniture… and both the One and the Others are not really wrong with these associations.
Whether it is sofas, cabinet systems or modular shelves – the modular principle is (again) a hotly coveted trend, which is only beginning to unfold.
The modular furniture is back with its flexibility and various design possibilities
It is reduced, but not in price, but in quantity
Feeling happy and sober is the trend
The mixed color gray comes and goes and still manages to make it look stylish, elegant and even timeless. The first association with gray is by no means good, but this color and all its nuances are very significant for every room designer and designer. With regard to spatial design, we can call the trend color gray very relevant. As is the case with all colors, we should also consider the effect of the existing light in the interaction with the colors. In the case of the color gray, this effect depends on the proportion of white or black. The peculiarity is that gray alone is not very meaningful. Among other colors, the color gray is gaining in significance and allows the colors to shine in their full splendor.
Gray and gold are part of the overall concept of many trends in 2018
In 2018, we will observe large-scale design in gray. The color will show a fashionable presence on walls, on floors and ceilings and furniture or accessories in gray give space a character of timelessness.
Gray and monochrome furnishings are particularly popular and remain timeless
Optimum use of space and optimization of wishes and needs
Design your home as you like it
On the wall you can do much more than just decorate it
The design by modular systems is a lot of fun
Métallic and gold luster
Gold and Metallic will further accentuate and enrich the extravagance of color tendencies. Often, the noble and futuristic splendor of the two appear in the form of choice residential accents, but also accent walls and luminous objects glimmer gold-metallic by trendy velvet in blue or gray.
Gold is a very refined color that really needs to be dosed with surgical accuracy. The awkward use of gold can quickly become kitschy. Popular items in gold are very reduced luminous objects and chandeliers, all kinds of handles, tableware and, of course, picture frames or frameless art in gold. In short, Gold and Metallic can enhance your room design as a contour, accent or reflex.
Elegant elegance with Danish flair
Gold luster is golden
And in places to be promoted – the perfect complement
Kinfolk and Slow Living
When a lot of creatives get together and work together on a concept for world improvement, only good things can get along with it.
Kinfolk is more than just a philosophy of life, a lifestyle concept or a design group.
The Copenhagen Combo preaches quietly and without pronounced words about quality of life, balanced aesthetics and education in beauty and harmony at every moment of life and in every area of life. The word Kinfolk means as much as kinship and has as its goal mainly to look for connections between all presentation techniques and expressive means.
Now it is modern and cool to live according to Slow Living principles
Consider the dynamics of life as an infinite design
Kinfolk is also a network, which has its creative seat in the Danish capital Copenhagen.
Kinfolk is increasingly expressed in terms of spatial design and design. Just like the Bauhaus event in the pre-war period, Kinfolk is a quest for balance between form and function. The magazine of the same name regularly brings news about the Danish trend and is characterized by exquisite design and mastery photography.
The Slow Living Trend, which is associated with Kinfolk, shows rooms and furnishing examples for the person who has enough time to enjoy his life and to admire the harmony.
The furnishing style is actually rather an appeal and a reminder at the same time that the human being can live sustainably but elegantly and should be urgently clear with his personal needs.
A lifestyle for an adult and mature man who longs for an environment in which he gets the impulse to be creative. An environment that drives him to be benevolent and exemplary. But all this can only happen when the individual has reached the limits of his own satisfaction.
