The farmhouse trend that has taken interior design by storm is fading away this year, according to Zillow’s Home Trend Forecast. But if you’re still crushing on that style, don’t fret; it’s just getting a make over.
“The overtly rustic, farmhouse-chic design trend is easing up,” said Zillow design expert Kerrie Kelly. “It may not be gone altogether, but it’s shifting toward a more modern style, pairing rustic elements like barn doors with modern materials like glass or metal. Exposed lightbulbs will be concealed once again, softening the harsher light of an exposed bulb to a warmer glow. Smart home products will gain popularity, matched by an equal rise in calm, meditative spaces for a way to disconnect.”
Check out these top design trends for 2019, according to Seattle-based Zillow.
Smart home technology. More voice-activated products will be seamlessly integrated into the home, helping homeowners simplify their daily routines. This technology will be especially visible in kitchens, and bathrooms with smart faucets and other appliances.
Warm modernism. Look for modern styles to replace rustic themes. Stark contrast and raw materials will be popular, softened by color and natural elements.
Organic maker accents. Industrial materials can give a cold impression, but handmade details and earthy elements add warmth to the look. Look for hand-painted or stitched pieces, and natural fibers in rugs or wall hangings.
Space to disconnect. In such a connected, always-on landscape, designated havens of quiet and calm will be more common. Acoustic panels, sheer fabrics, and colored lights create a tranquil feel.
Industrial vibes. Concrete and metal will rise in popularity, but finishes in moody blues and grays can add an extra layer of distinction.
