Every year design professionals flock to a place called High Point market, located in High Point, North Carolina. In this otherwise sleepy town us designers come to learn about new decor trends, color forecasts, new materials and more. If you have followed my blog for any amount of time this is by far my most popular post if your remodeling or building a house because High Point market is Mecca for the interior design trade.
I typically get this post up a few weeks after market but my team and I have been busy launching a new online course and a new book and here it is already June. But hey, better late than never right?
So what did I see? What can you expect within the next two years? Well the forecast may shock you! And fair warning, this post is long because I have a lot of photos to share!
Hottest interior design trends for 2018
Beige and brown are back!! If you never got around to embracing the grey trend, well guess what? Your back in!
Tribal patterns and color palettes of black, white, caramel combined with organics
Orange and red are making a swift comeback!
Warm neutrals, gold, browns, and organics
It appears that the color trend is coming to a soft close. Color was almost completely devoid at this market and neutrals reined supreme. A direct reflection of the current political climate I’m sure. When ever it’s an election year it always creates a siesmic shift in the decor and fashion industries. I think more than ever consumers will start to crave the warmth of deeper color palettes and warmer woods along with the feeling of bringing the serenity of nature indoors. Everybody wants calm.
Many consumers are not feeling attracted to bright, cool colors mainly because that doesn’t reflect their mood. They are craving a nest that brings understanding, friendliness and closeness. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this trend manifests fully by fall market in October. Stay tuned, 2018 and 2019 just might shock us all!
