BOLD , PATTERNED BACKSPLASHES & TILE
From Elle Decor - Amy Sklar of Sklar Design
"Simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, so we will be gravitating toward making a little more impact in their kitchens, whether that's with bolder color choices or graphic tiles. Either way, I predict we will be seeing more pop and punch in kitchens!"
MATT BLACK IS THE NEW GREY
From Interiors Online
Nothing creates a sense of drama better than black. Expect to see bold, high-contrast designs all over your Instagram feeds in 2019, as matt black moves from fashion and beauty into homewares and interiors. Lighting, seating, home décor objects and sideboards are all key pieces you can introduce to reference the trend. This one is likely to be with us for a long time, as well as a good time.
From Elle Decor – Sara Ianniciello
“Many people are beginning to incorporate colored cabinets in kitchens while moving away from all white cabinetry. Making a statement and creating a mood with cabinetry, like using deep or grey-washed blues and greens is in high demand. These are being beautifully paired with fixtures and hardware in brass and other contrasting metals.”
LIGHT WOOD FLOORS
From Elle Decor — Kesha Franklin of Halden Interiors
"Light-colored floors are making a comeback, thanks to the homeowner's growing desire for a more airy and open look and feel. In shades of birch, beachy white and light oak, these floors reflect more light, and can transition from casual to luxurious, without sacrificing comfort."
ARTISTIC & CUSTOM FIXTURES
From Decor Aid
Like velvet pieces many designers have noticed a shift and that more decorators are partial to fixture from local artist and small businesses, especially lighting. Artisan fixtures personalize your home, and like natural elements, helps shifts homes focus from the tech world to the natural world.

"Floral patterns will take root and show up in stores on bedding, pillows, chairs, and wallpaper, whether you’re ready for them or not.”
From Decor Aid
A composite material consisting of chips of marble, quartz, granite, and glass to evoke a playful, confetti-like abstracted spirit, we’ve seen plenty of genius ways to bring the material into your home with Terrazzo covering everything from flooring to lamps to even shower curtains (in print, that is).
From Elle Decor - Keita Turner of Keita Turner Design
"An ensemble of metal accents (no more than a mix of two to three different metal accents) used throughout a room is in, and will always be a timeless and tasteful way to create balance and definition in an environment. For example, brass, gold or nickel accents mix well with either oil-rubbed bronze or aged iron accents. Metals like silver and pewter can mix well with bronze and black brown metals. It’s all about moderation and context."
