Furnishing and living are indeed very individual and oriented to personal needs and yet or exactly why you can imagine the upcoming trends. For today’s article we have exactly this task for you: to familiarize our loyal readers with the existing ones for the year 2017 and the emerging ones for 2018 trends in interior design.
No panic! Nothing will happen in a creative sense, which you may not know. The novelty in the recurrent tendencies is undoubtedly the zeitgeist. Let’s take a look at what the current zeitgeist of lifestyle trends and interior design ideas in 2018 promises. What are the 2017 trends that persist and what will be new in 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 lightning-fast the late 70s and early 80s, others think of Lego bricks and Ikea furniture … and both the one and the other are not really wrong with these associations.
Whether it’s sofas, cabinet systems or module shelves – the modular principle is (again) a hotly sought-after trend that is just beginning to unfold.
The modular furniture is back with its flexibility and various design options
It is reduced, but not in price, but in quantity
Feeling happy and contented is trendy
The mixed color gray comes and goes and always manages to look stylish, elegant and even somehow timeless. The first association with gray is by no means good, but this color and all its nuances are very important to any interior designer. In terms of interior design, we can call the trend color gray very relevant. As is the case with all colors, we should factor in the effect of the existing light in combination with the colors. In the case of gray, this effect depends on the proportion of white or black. The peculiarity here is that gray alone is not very meaningful. In addition to other colors, the color gray gains in design 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 the room a character of timelessness.
Gray and monochrome furnishings are particularly fashionable and remain timeless
Optimum use of space and optimization of wishes and needs
Design your home the way you like it
On the wall you can do much more than just decorate it
The design by modular systems makes a lot of fun
Métallic and gold gloss
Gold and Metallic will continue to emphasize and enrich the extravagance of the color trends. Often the noble and futuristic shine of the two appears in the form of exquisite living accessories, but also accent walls and luminous objects shimmer gold-metallic through trendy velvet in blue or gray.
Gold is a very refined shade that really needs to be dosed with surgical accuracy. The awkward insertion of the gold can quickly become cheesy. Popular items in gold are very reduced luminous objects and chandeliers, handles of all kinds, cutlery and of course picture frames or frameless art in gold. In short, gold and metallic can enhance your interior design as a contour, as an accent or as a reflex.
Noble elegance with a Danish flair
Gold gloss is golden
and in appropriate places – the perfect match
Kinfolk and Slow Living
When a lot of creative things come together and work together on a concept for world improvement, only good things can come of it.
Kinfolk is more than life philosophy, lifestyle concept or idea of a designer group.
The Copenhagen combo preaches quietly and without pronounced words about quality of life, balanced aesthetics and education in beauty and harmony in every moment of life and in every sphere of life. The word kinfolk means kin and has as its goal mainly to look for connections between all display techniques and means of expression.
Now it is modern and cool to live by Slow Living principles
Consider the dynamics of life as an infinite design
Kinfolk is also a network, which has its creative headquarters in the Danish capital Copenhagen.
In the area of interior design and design, Kinfolk is becoming more and more popular. Like the pre-war Bauhaus event, Kinfolk is a quest for balance between form and function. The magazine of the same name brings out regular news about the Danish trend and is characterized by exquisite design and masterful photography.
The Slow Living trend, associated with Kinfolk, shows spaces and interior design examples for the human being who has enough time to enjoy life and admire harmony.
The furnishing style is actually more of 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 person, who longs for an environment in which he gets the urge to be creative. An environment that drives him to be benevolent and exemplary. But all this can happen only when the individual has reached the limits of his own contentment.
Kinfolk is to reinvent the love of beauty in every sphere of life
Harmony and balanced relationships between the objects
Less is enough
The environment determines the well-being
The decor should be inspirational
Valuable, sustainable and reasonable
Reduction not to the essential, but to the favorite
A lot of space and air, which send the imagination on a journey
