Do Not Paint Your Walls White – 2018 Interior Trends Ultimate Checklist

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

  1. Thank you for lovely post however I will probably left my walls unpainted (white one) I’m to lazy to paint it every year.

    1. No worries 🙂 White walls have always been great background for lots of styling possibilities.

  2. Thank you so much for this post! One of my favorite design trends is colorful walls and patterned wallpaper. I think people are really starting to open their eyes to all of the unique possibilities that are emerging. The eclectic jungalow vibe is really taking over and these photos are right in line with that trend.
