Pinterest has released their Top 100 which points to the trends we can expect to emerge in our interiors, fashion, food and minds over the course of 2018.
Based on their research of pinners’ activity over the course of 2017, Pinterest filter and find emerging trends and, with the interest in all things home continuing to grow every year, we’re excited to see what people are saving, browsing and coveting for their homes.
Here are your very own HB editors’ picks of the Top 5 Pinterest trends in homes
1. The magic of metallics
Metallic highlights in the home continue to inspire us here at HB and we’re glad the feeling is mutual. Bringing a touch of bling to any colour palette, either pair base tones of your metallic choice with warm or cool tones in your fabrics, timbers and paint finishes, or mix it up for an extra edge. With the trend now extending to our walls, the best thing about using metallic finishes in the home is that the sky is the limit – a little detail or a loud statement will both suffice, depending on your own personal taste.
Try: a chrome-edged mirror in the bathroom, a rose-gold feature light or a brass-footed coffee table in the living room.
2. Hello, terrazzo
We love the resurgence of terrazzo in our homes on everything from floors and benchtops to large-format walls and accessories. A great feature of this chameleon finish is that due to its composition of crushed stone, marble and resin, flecks of a myriad colours make up the final product, and can be picked up in other elements in your room.
Try: picking up a colour from the flecked finish and using it in a larger scale on a wall, in cabinetry, artwork or furnishings in the space.
3. The fifth wall
Your ceiling is the new space to make a statement – one step on from traditional pressed metal or architectural mouldings, a textured finish or bold colour can transform a room from the top down.
Try: timber-lined ceilings painted with your choice of colour in gloss finish.
4. Beautiful to the bone
The artisan practice of bone- and mother of pearl inlay is bringing a rich texture to our interiors in mirrors, consoles, tables and trays. Usually sourced from India, these pieces are painstakingly created with delicate shapes carved and set into the surfaces of timber homewares. Lace, geometric or traditional tribal patterns all delight with their dramatic designs.
Try: the addition of a feature chest of drawers in your master bedroom for an opulent, well-travelled touch.
5. Statement doors
Your front door signals the first impression for visitors and makes a statement of your style and what lies beyond the entrance to your home. A colourfully-painted or oversized contemporary-style front door is the latest way to welcome guests.
