Hottest Apartment Styles For 2019
New year, new place! Or, maybe just a refresh. Whatever the occasion, 2019 offers fresh new ways to nest.
At the 2019 Atlanta Furnishings Show, tactile experiences were everywhere. Richly colored velvet sofas, sumptuous wool and faux furs and nubby natural fabrics added depth and an experiential flair to interior elements. Handcrafted items continue their comeback and offer not just uniqueness, but also an authenticity. Finally, the simple, relaxing style of northern Europe (“hygge” anyone?) has crossed the pond and is redefining cozy.
Elle Decor marks a trend towards “less is more” with light-filled, airy spaces with less clutter and, a return to “form is function” and more clever storage options. Many are seeking a deeper connection to the natural world, both literally with walls that open to create outdoor living spaces and also by bringing nature indoors through plants, and natural materials such as fibers and stone. Also continuing into 2019 are deep paint colors for walls, especially saturated greens and warm neutrals.
House Beautiful rolls out a move towards bold wall paper, especially in botanical and patterned prints. (And, removable peel-and-stick wallpaper is becoming more widely available, offering a great option for apartment dwellers that is also easy to update on a whim!) Linen bedding is offering easy-care luxury in comfy, natural tones.
Move over “industrial farmhouse,” welcome “nature-inspired comfortable” – happy decorating!
