It’s almost New Year’s Day! You know what that means: Timelines and Insta-stories full of folks resolving to better themselves financially, physically, academically, etc. Always a fan of self-improvement and development, I say, “GO FOR IT.”
Jill White Designs looks forward to a lot of the new and a little of the old in 2018. Here are a few thoughts on the trends turning my head (some will be familiar):
Oxblood: As mentioned on Insta (below), “Love it or hate it, it’s everywhere and we’re jumping on the train & STUPID excited about it!” This trend is likely a throwback to art deco and all things European. Don’t be afraid to incorporate this bold trend.
Ultra Violet: It’s the Pantone “color of the year,” after all! In a Stella-approved move, Pantone’s 18-3838 will be seen all over in 2018. According to Pantone, the hue is “A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” Be ready to see this color used in accent pieces everywhere.
Nature-inspired Decor: Expect to continue seeing shades inspired by nature, from stone to earth to ocean, natural colors and elements will be found all over. Flora, raw wood, and leaves will be all over. As I mentioned in my last post, go outside and see what you can find. This is a budget-friendly trend that instantly updates your space.
Wallpaper and Prints Galore: Another recent Insta, 2017 saw tons of fun prints with an emphasis on interesting wallpaper. Almost nothing is off limits! Florals, abstracts, graphics, patterned….each adds its own element of fun, especially in smaller spaces. Stay tuned in 2018 to see what new prints JWD has in store!
Black and White: Last, but never least, you don’t have to stray from the tried and true. Yeah, I’m going to say it: black and white. I mean, these basic elements are not going anywhere, and black and white is always a safe bet. Used as a foundation, the sky’s the limit as far as accompanying decor.
JWD had an outstanding 2017, and I am excited to see what 2018 has in store! If you’ve resolved to finally do a home update you’ve been pondering for years or build your dream home, give me a call, and let’s make your dream a reality!
