Pinterest Faves: 10 Home Decor Trends You Need to Know!

Late last year, Pinterest sent out their list of top 10 home decor trends for 2018 based on which topics have seen a huge jump in saves in the past year.

This is always an exciting email to get as a blogger because, hello content planning across my whole life, but its also really interesting to see what is collectively resonating with the millions of people who use Pinterest to search, save, and curate their homes.

Let’s take a look at the full list of Pinterest faves and talk about the 10 home decor trends you need to know!

1. Resort Inspired Decor

Up 269%, think your favourite hotel meets the most luxurious spa you’ve been to and bring that feeling home. For bathrooms, how about pairing marble accessories, brass fixtures, and soft monogrammed towels and robes? Bonus points for a stunning view like the Ludlow Hotel bathroom below. For bedrooms, luxury linens and lots of texture and natural light would be at the top of my list. How about you?

2. Mixed Metals

Searches for mixed metals were up by 423%! This surprised me the most but it totally makes sense now that brass hardware and lighting are here to stay and not everyone switches every last detail from nickel or brushed aluminum to brass. I’m looking forward to all the mixed metal inspo that will be popping up in my Pinterest feed!

3. Terrazo

Growing up, I remember terrazo was mainly reserved for apartment lobbies and hospital corridors. Today’s iteration mixes in larger pieces of marble, pairs it with brass inlay patterns, and introduces lots of colour. Think wall decor and home accessories inspired by the looks below. I’m absolutely in love with the Terrazo-style wallpaper below! Searches for terrazo were up by 316%.

4. Statement Ceilings

With saves up 310%, the fifth wall is up for grabs from a simple paint job to more elaborate wallpaper treatments. A darker colour up top can lower the room visually and turn cavernous spaces into cozy interiors, although truly, any colour will make a style statement.

5. Bone Inlay

Up 217% in saves, for me bone inlay pieces are reminiscent of grand South Asian or Moroccan estates with their geometric shapes and air of indulgence and I always think of warm walnut paired with brass and bone. The minimalist in me loves the idea of pairing a bone inlay piece with a really clean, textured, monochromatic room for a true Scandinavian meets Boho-Chic style. My post on Modern Boho-Chic Interiors breaks this pairing down into more detail.

6. Herringbone Patterns

Last year, I wrote a post discussing my love for herringbone and showed you all kinds of gorgeous design inspo. Up 131% in saves on Pinterest, the herringbone wall tiles below are just one stylish example of this elegant pattern.

7. Colourful Doors

We’ve all seen that one house with a bright red door in our neighborhood, right? This is a very affordable way to update your curb appeal and the only limit is your favourite colour preferences! Our current front door is a de-saturated olive green and I absolutely love it. Saves for colourful doors were up by 121%. Remember, colourful wreaths are another way of adding some contrast too.

8. Patterned plants

I think if you’re looking for proof that the tide is slowly turning towards maximalism, after years of minimalist design, then this trend for patterned plants is right on point. Plants with multi-coloured leaves and patterned foliage were up 533% cementing their status as Pinterest faves!

9. Oversized art

By far the most popular trend on this list, Pinterest saves for large scale art were up 637%! Prepare for lots of oversized art inspiration throughout the home (here’s my take on oversized art in nurseries and a free oversized printable), but the real question is, could this be the end to the ubiquitous gallery wall? Personally, I love the clean look and immediate punch that a single large piece of art can add to any space but I can also appreciate a good gallery wall. Which one do you lean towards? (P.S.: Here’s my post on Styling the Perfect Gallery Wall).

10. Sage

Up 170% in saves, I was quite surprised to see sage on the list. If anything, I was convinced it would be emerald green which definitely had a moment last year. Sage has lot of potential as “the new neutral” and certainly ties into the Scandinavian aesthetic that I admire so much. What I’m loving now, pairing sage green with metallics, like Sarah Sherman Samuel did in her bright and airy kitchen. P.S.: The cabinet colour she used is Farrow & Ball’s Pigeon.
