WHAT IS “Boho?”

“ I believe that 2018 will bring us a return to some 1980s inspired finishes, sort of how clothing is all about the 1980s and 1990s right now. I’m talking about floral patterns, wood cabinets, deep saturated colors, patterns, but not in the scary way that you are probably envisioning,’’ said Marilynn Taylor, South Bay online interior design consultant and owner of The Taylored Home “This is the 80s done the way we all wish it was the first time around. We are seeing wood cabinets return, in a contemporary way with simpler profiles on the doors, beautiful wood grains and colors, in both vertical and horizontal grains in walnuts, teak and French oak, not that low-grade yellow oak that we have all spent the last 30 years either painting over or ripping out of our kitchens.”

  “Boho” world influenced design (Turkish rugs are all the rage) will be dukeing it out with the familiar farmhouse style design through 2018. “All you have to do is search #jungalowstyle (from Los Angeles designer Justina Blakeney) and you will see what I mean. This style is all the rage and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, I’d say it gives farmhouse style decor a run for its money. Overall, traditional design will start to find its way back into our hearts, but with a new twist to keep it fresh,’’ she said.

Many of the interior design trends that just began to crop up in 2017 are expected to hold steady or become even trendier in 2018:

Tropical inspiration. No matter where the home, having a tropical feel in a room can transport you to a warm, sunny and relaxed place. Lush plants, a lot of greenery, jewel tones, tropical prints, and other elements of the tropics are big this year in design.

Cork. Useful and attractive, cork is a material that is trending big in design right now. Whether it covers a small surface or an entire wall, cork can be used to pin ideas and inspiration or just to add natural warmth to a room.

Front doors that pop. Bold front doors on homes are continuing to trend in design. It may not technically be part of the interior, but the front door can set the tone for the design of an entire home. Designers are using large glass doors, bright colors, or extravagantly carved wooden doors, anything to bring attention and express the feel of the home.

What is Wabi-Sabi?

Written By: Erica Reictman

How to Embrace Wabi-Sabi

Learn all about this Japanese trend of happily accepting life's imperfections, and get some ideas on how to incorporate the wabi-sabi trend in your own home.  

What Is Wabi-Sabi?

By definition, wabi-sabi doesn't necessarily have a design connection. It's an ancient Japanese framework rooted in Zen Buddhism that celebrates the imperfect beauty of nature, with all of its natural flaws and blemishes. When embracing the wabi-sabi approach in your home, you can finally ditch your endless pursuit of the perfect vignette or sexiest shelfie. Wabi-sabi design means saying yes to imperfection, natural objects, texture and unique materials.
