Here are the tips to use to make your space sing.nbsp;
Start with the walls
ldquo;Forget about blank walls, because one of the best interior design trends for 2019 is the use of mesmerizing wallpapers,rdquo; said Deacute;cor Aid. ldquo;Installing wallpaper is a great way to add an interesting twist to your dull living spaces. This yearrsquo;s wallpapers were more decorative and bold than ever before and this interior design trend is certain to replace the use of artwork and other art pieces for wall deacute;cor. Some of the most popular wallpaper designs for 2019 featured landscape scenery, abstract shapes, and colorful geometric patterns.rdquo;
Palm imagery is on Elle Deacute;corrsquo;s hot list, and we can see why. ldquo;Whether embroidered on a pillow, perched askew in a vase, or replicated on wallpaper, palm imagery is a major trend right now,rdquo; they said. ldquo;The look is lush, natural, warm, and most importantly, versatile. With palms, your surrounding design can be opulent and raised to the heavens or more down to earth, an organic oasis."nbsp;
Deck out a small space
You donrsquo;t need to have a palatial space to use a dramatic print. In fact, bringing large-scale patterns into a small-scale space ldquo;can actually make a much brighter impact than you might think,rdquo; said Apartment Therapy. ldquo;Adding a graphic pattern in the form of watercolor drapes, artwork, pillows, and rugs can maximize patternmdash;without overwhelming. Choose a lighter huehellip;in a contrasting color to complement rather than clash.rdquo;
Keep in mind, though, that, ldquo;Sometimes, less is more in the case of bold patterns being corralled to contrasting bed linens rather than the entire room. Choose three colorshellip;and incorporate a mix of solids along with your chosen patterns to add dimension and texture to the look.rdquo;
Make a great first impression
One Kingrsquo;s Lane loves graphic florals, and recommends using the saturated prints to ldquo;give your entry or a passageway a bold dash of color and florals in the form of a gallery wall made upnbsp;of modern and abstract prints. As a high-traffic area that generally doesnrsquo;t invite pause, itrsquo;s a perfect place for introducingnbsp;extra color. The addition of annbsp;equally mesmerizing floor pattern or rug makes fornbsp;eye-popping balance.rdquo;
Layer, layer, layer
If you really want to get that designer look, layer in different patterns within your color story. A floral wall covering with blue, green, black, white, and pink gives you lots of options for pulling colors out. How about a black-and-white checked pillow, a rug with a blue background, and a checked throw? Now yoursquo;ve got a space that look like it was hit with a professional touch.nbsp;
If you love the idea of bold patterns but need to tiptoe into the trend, consider going with solids on large areas and bring in some patterned accessories. ldquo;Pattern is the great unifier in interior design,rdquo; said Freshome. ldquo;In a room featuring bold colors, you can use it to bring the design together bynbsp;choosing a patternnbsp;that features your shades in a cohesive application. Look for patterned rugs, throw pillows and blankets. Though, if yoursquo;re looking to make an even bigger statement, patterned furniture will certainly fit the bill. Think about adding in a patterned accent chair or sofa to serve as the focal point of the space.rdquo;
