Hello, my dear readers. First of all, Happy New Year! Hope the year 2018 is going to bring you happiness, travels, inspiration, and joy. In 2017 I had 2 opportunities to visit Paris Design Week in January and September. 2018 interior trends are similar to the ones that I could observe at Maison&Objet in January 2017 with slight updates, more fresh vibes and new interesting products.
Later this year I’ll present my favourite products. But now, let’s discover without much talking 2018 interior trends.
Maison&Objet’s theme for September was « Comfort » so I tested hundreds armchairs and sofas so that I can offer the most comfortable furniture for you. I can state that 2018 interior trends will be moody, warm, inviting, cozy and no white will dominate. How’s that? Hygge is over? Well, keep reading, I’ll explain this point below.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #1: VELVET
We can observe that velvet is not yet ready to slow down so it is quite present in all sorts of interior statements – as luxurious wall covering, sofa which does a perfect job as a statement piece, or accessories as cushions. Embrace the cold season with velvet and you’ll see the difference in your mood. It does not mean that velvet is not suitable for summer.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #2: BRASS
As well as velvet, brass trend has been growing since and doesn’t want to slow down either. I could observe brass in all kinds of an interior piece – from furniture as tables, poufs, mirrors to pineapple decor. Use it wisely!
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #3: MARBLE
Marble is really making a statement this fall! All colours, all styles, even jewel boxes are made of marble As marble is something worth investing, you won’t get wrong buying a piece of something nice. It will never go out of style. Of course, don’t use marble on every surface of your house. Try matching it with reclaimed wood and other materials to get the “wow” effect.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #4: DARK MOODY INTERIORS
Emerald green, black and Chile red are widely used to give interior intimate and cozy atmosphere. I noticed that many showrooms use darker, moodier colours instead of flashy whites. I could tell a big difference when entering white and bright “interior”, and what I felt when was walking around darker, moody showroom. Darker showroom let your eyes have some rest and it it’s more inviting to be there longer. It is normal to rest in a more intimate room after the whole day in bright office. There is no direct light, and all colours, even bold ones make a statement when walls are painted in the dark.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #5: GREENERY
If you have a green thumb, you can create an orangery in your room, because 2017/2018 year is filled with green plants, the more, the better.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #6: EXPRESSIVE ART

2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #7: BEAUTIFUL TABLEWARE
Mix and match colours, don’t be afraid to play with various sizes plates. Your guests will be amazed by your decorator skills.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #8: ODD SHAPE MIRRORS
Odd shape mirrors are a perfect solution to a lonely wall. Combining some mirrors and juju hats you can create absolutely stunning statement wall behind your sofa or console.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #9: ETHNIC DECOR
Tribal attributes as jewelry or masks are also present this year as during earlier years. Juju hats, as since forever, makes a perfect match with mirrors or using alone.
2018 INTERIOR TRENDS #10: LANTERNS
Big lanterns for your decor, candles or flowers make a great statement all year long. It creates warm and inviting atmosphere during winter if you decide to put candles there.
