These Are Six of the Most Popular Design Trends for 2018

Since its inception, Pinterest has cemented itself as a leading source of image-led inspiration; whether you're planning a dream wedding, or building a dream home.

The platform, which has millions (billions, maybe) of images available to curate your virtual vision boards has just released it's summer (well, winter, for all of us south of the equator) report, which sheds light on the most popular trends coming through this season. The data speaks for itself, and if you're considering re-doing your space, these are the trends set for your pin-boards... and quite possibly your life offline, too.

Geometric Accent Tables and Tiles

Colour is a crucial element in any space but this year, structure and form are definitely to the fore. Geometric shapes add interest and focal points to any room, and nod to the trends of decades past; think Art Deco accents complementing with interestingly shaped tiles.

Botanical Framed Prints

Framed prints of blooms and foliage bring the outside in while adding subtle splashes of colour to your theme. Florals can feel especially fresh when sitting in a group; multiple, contemporary framed prints feel are a simple and cost-effective way of trialling this trend.

Bold Colours

It's all about strong colours this year; especially dark greens (hello, Olive), deep, rich blues and reds. Sofas, curtains and even kitchen units are getting colourful updates; although if you're feeling a little non-committal, choose cushions, throws, bed linen and accessories in trending palettes to elevate your home.

Fringed Furnishings

Having graced many a catwalk in recent seasons, fringes have moved from fashion to interiors this season. Everything from chandeliers to throws are getting the fringe treatment, nodding to 80s maximalism.

Statement Rugs

Warm up your space — literally and design-wise — with a bold, elevated carpet. For a well-rounded effect, opt for one that incorporates your space's accent colours; this will inject drama (the good kind) into your interior.

Cement Floor Tiles

Giving you the feel of stone but without breaking the bank, cement floor tiles will give your space a cutting-edge, industrial feel. Combining contemporary minimalism with a hint of 60s avant-garde design, the tiles are on trend with a timeless appeal, fusing innovation with practicality.
