Top Colors for 2019
With a new year comes a new color palette and we are LOVING the top colors for 2019.
Pantone recently announced Living Coral (Pantone 16-1546) as the 2019 color of the year. Described as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge,” Living Coral is sure to brighten and warm any environment in which it is placed.
PPG Pittsburgh Paints has also unveiled their color of the year, Night Watch green (PPG1145-7.) This deep, rich shade pairs splendidly with Pantone’s Living Coral and would be perfect on the walls of a bedroom, study, living room, or sitting area.
Lastly, but certainly not least, Millennial Pink continues to be popular amongst designers. Seen everywhere from luxury runways to Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts, this bubbly shade inspires the childlike wonder in us all. We recommend using this color as an accent to one of the two mentioned above.
Combining any of these colors with deep, rich earth tones will result in a color palette that guarantees to delight.
Reflecting the trends of 2018, the creative use of patterns and prints in a space is more fashionable than ever.
For the bold among you, geometric and tribal patterns are the number one way to showcase an eye for design in your home. Whether used in small ways, such as curtains or accent pillows, or as statement pieces of furniture or wallpaper, these patterns are sure to make your home stand out – for the better!
If you prefer a more subtle look, the ombre trend remains hot. When used in lieu of a bolder geometric pattern, ombre gives a soft and sophisticated air to any room.
Terrazzo is back, and it’s more popular than ever.
For those unfamiliar with the material, terrazzo is a composite of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other that is bound together and used in place of any one of the materials it’s made from.
The final result is a speckled pattern that can be multicolor or monochromatic and makes for a fabulous addition to any kitchen or bathroom counter, or floor.
Though some might argue that the bohemian vibe never really left the design scene, everyone can agree that it has been a minute since this laid-back style had its moment in the spotlight.
The bohemian style makes it easy to merge bold colors with statement pieces to create a sense of whimsy in your home.
Bohemian enables one to adopt a lassiez-faire attitude when it comes to their decorating as it allows for be blending of both vintage and modern pieces alike.
Possibly the most elegant way to make a statement in any room is to install a custom ceiling. A well-done accent ceiling has the ability to make more of an impact than any piece of furniture or accent wall could ever dream of, and the options are endless!
Some of our favorite ceiling updates include painting, lacquering, wallpapering, covering the ceiling in a custom molding or even taking it back to the 1920’s with molded tin!
Whatever you decide, a statement ceiling has the possibility to make a room larger, brighter and the most memorable of them all!
Agate Wallpaper is another trend we’ve seen on the rise. This beautiful marbling pattern evokes a sense of serenity and calm. Available in both permanent and temporary solutions and with a variety of colors, there is an agate wallpaper available for any luxury space.
We recommend using the shade of blue and pairing with Night Watch green and Living Coral furniture and accents.
