Love Those 2018 Decor Trends On Pinterest? We've Decoded Them For Indian Homes

We’re all guilty of spending way too much time on Pinterest looking at home décor ideas and trends. So, when Pinterest tells us the  Top 100 Trends To Try in 2018, we sit up and listen!

Every year, they reveal the most-searched ideas on their platform. Of course, this gives us a pretty good idea of what’s going to be hot in home decor globally that year. So, we sat down and decoded the report to give you what we, in India, can do with Pinterest’s home décor trends this year. Out with the old and in with the new!

Warning: We put our money where our saved images are, and people who use Pinterest spend 27% more on decor than people who don’t {sorry, wallets} so read on at your own risk!

Terrazzo Is Back!

If you were thinking of getting your decades-old terrazzo flooring replaced, hold that thought! The forgotten flooring of the ’70s {which is still commonly found in Indian homes} is brightening up ceilings, entryways and everything in between. Try using the pattern on a tabletop, or even on the kitchen backsplash.

LBB recommends: Bharat Floorings & Tiles {Shahpur Jat Village, Next to Wishing Chair} & Nitco Tiles Terrazzo {2, Najafgarh Rd, Kirti Nagar Industrial Area, Tilak Nagar}.

Statement Ceilings

Or what it’s called these days – the fifth wall! Whether you choose to paint it a bold colour, put wallpaper over it or even add a unique texture, ceilings are definitely looking up in 2018!

LBB recommends: Hit up these talented artists who might be able to help you.

Herringbone Pattern on Walls & Floors

Wall tiles and flooring with a herringbone pattern are versatile, add dimension and make any space more modern. Think beautiful furniture pieces decorated with marquetry {the subtle art of creating scenes or patterns using different woods or materials}. Indians have been adding the herringbone pattern to their wooden wardrobe and entry doors. But you can just as easily opt for the geometric pattern in your flooring, or on a textured wall.

LBB recommends: For Herringbone wallpaper, check out 3D Wallpaper Store. They charge about INR 900/roll with installation {1088, C/1, Dargah Road, Ward No.1, South Delhi, Near Dargah School, Mehrauli Fruit Market, New Delhi} & Wallpaper Importer Wholesaler Supplier {B-2/20, Safdarjung Enclave, New Delhi, 110029}, FCML Store.

Colourful Statement Doors

Welcome your guests with a bold, bright statement door or even a cute message on the doormat. When done in a tasteful shade, a statement door immediately ratchets up your home’s welcome appeal. Experiment with bold colours, like teal or even a bright ochre!

Resort Vibes At Home: With Spa Bathrooms & Rattan Furniture

Who doesn’t like a vacation home? So bring the vacay vibes home this year with spa-inspired bathrooms and rattan furniture. Rattan makes for a unique idea instead of the age-old cane, and is found easily in India! Here’s an outdoor rattan swing idea from Amazon.

LBB recommends: LUXOX Furniture Pvt. Ltd.{Shakti Nagar, Near Roshnara Club}, Fabindia Home Furniture Gurgaon {Shop No.02-07 F, Lower Ground Floor, The Plaza Mall}, Urban Ladder or Amazon.

Patterned Plants

Houseplants pack a punch in any space, but when their leaves boast a pattern or multiple colours, you can feature them as decor. Prayer plants are a popular option, as is the red aglaonema plant. You can easily buy both at any local nursery or Amazon.

LBB recommends: Garden Onsite, My Bageecha and this list.

Big Wall Art, Photos & Posters

Those stacked up frames and Polaroid’s on burlap strings are out. Huge paintings that dominate the wall are in! Oversized prints, posters, and paintings are taking centre stage. Hang these on an empty wall in ANY room – it works!

LBB recommends: Amazon, The Paper Store, MadCap and The Postbox.

Metallic Finishes

“Metals mesh with any colour palette, but if you are looking to really amp up a space, mix different finishes together,” according to the Pinterest report. An easy way to mix metals is hanging {and using!} copper cutlery & utensils in your stainless steel kitchen, or adding metallic chairs to your open kitchen.

LBB recommends: Metal Avenues {A-16, Tagore Market, Kirti Nagar}, Nivasa, The Lohasmith or Thelabellife.

Beautiful Bone Inlays

Bone inlay adds instant drama to any surface, whether in flooring or wall tile. It takes an ordinary piece from meh to marvellous with maximalist drama and geometric designs.

Sage: The {Other} Colour For 2018

While ultraviolet is Pantone’s colour of the year, the soothing sage green is what Pinterest users searched most for in home decor ideas. Sage green is an excellent neutral tone to soften up a space with. If you’re not willing to commit an entire wall to a trending colour, add accents with sage table runners or even a vase.

LBB recommends: Sarita Handa, Pepperfry and then, you can always get upholstery from these places to customise your furniture at home.
