Decorating Trends for Luxury Residences for 2018

 

Interior design is like fashion and art; it’s ruled by current trends. Of course, if you ownluxury residences you have the right to decorate your home as you see fit. However, you may want to invest in proper interior decorating if you wish to make a good impression on guests. It’s even more important if you’re planning to sell your property in the near future.

So what’s “in” these days? If you want to ride the leading edge of home decorating style, consider the following trends:

Metals

Numerous experts agree that this is perhaps the most prevalent trend for 2018. The use of bronze, copper, and other finishes is a familiar sight in many luxury homes and condos today.

Its popularity is due to how metallic colors can easily catch the eye, and it harkens back to earlier eras when such metals were much in vogue. Part of the reason for how many affluent people are drawn to this trend is that it’s because it can be challenging to use different metals to end up with a delicate balance. When you succeed, you demonstrate your inherent good taste.

It’s best that you don’t overdo things with metallic finishes, as these work best when they’re subtle and understated. You can go with metal lamps and vases, along with bronze or brass door handles. Just go with a little bit of metal here and there.

Geometric Patterns

Like metals, you really don’t want to go overboard with geometric patterns either. But these patterns are great, simply because there’s an overwhelmingly wide range of geometric patterns to choose from. It’s a great way to showcase your real personality.

So, if you want you can go with subtle and simply use several classy patterned cushions to increase the elegance of a room somewhat. Or you can use black and white patterns in a more dramatic way to express your bold personality.

Going with Greenery

In today’s world there’s a lot of concern over the environment, and many modern city dwellers bewail the lack of natural items in the home. That’s especially true for condo’s which can sometimes look overly sterile if you’re not careful.

Now if you have a home with a yard then you can perhaps start a nice garden for yourself. You can put some chairs and tables there and have some outdoor space to relax in.

But even in a penthouse apartment you can bring to your place the tranquility that a garden offers. You can always start with a few plants with lots of leaves in a few spots, so that your condo unit doesn’t look too industrial and artificial.

Natural Colors

Even if you’re not a fan of plants and natural greenery, you can opt for natural colors to enjoy a similar outdoor vibe. You can use natural colors on your walls, and in fact, there’s now a color called “Greenery” (a sort of yellow-green mix) that was hailed as the color of the year for 2017. But you can also use hazelnut and kale colors too.

Minimalism

The minimalism trend has been going strong for several years now, and apparently, it’s not going anywhere. That’s partly due how valuable every square inch of space has become in real estate. Demand for urban residential areas is quite high, and thus condo units have become more expensive. You’ll need to optimize your space.

It’s for that reason that clutter these days is a no-no. In addition, this minimalism trend also includes furniture that can be used in different ways. That versatility in furniture is crucial and large space-consuming decorative items are now discouraged.

Try any of these new trends for your luxury home, and you will feel right at home, in a way that’s decidedly luxurious.
