The darker months are a great time for planning to refresh your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home. And for 2018 designers and brands expect home decor to be bolder than it has been for years with vivid jewel tones and luxe velvet and brass balanced with organic accents. 

But first it’s out with the old All-White Kitchens. It would seem that all white interiors really are on their way out. Kitchens in particular will continue to be brighter into the New Year, stark whites will be swapped for warm wood tones and new neutrals including cream, blue, and gray, according to reports from Houzza. White and Stainless Steel Sinks will follow suit with darker, more daring designs, watch out for concrete and stone styles.

The lone wall Accent Walls which was so big in the '80s and '90s and were hailed as the instant way to make a room look like it was decorated are on their way out. In their place to create interest, designers are suggesting incorporating timeless texture such as millwork and wainscoting or statement ceilings.

Word Art or throw pillows spelling out sentiments such as "Home," "Family," or full quotes are a concept that has become overdone in recent years. In 2018, look for less literal ways to express yourself. As are random Architectural Elements e.g. barn doors just don't look right in an otherwise traditional house, or Greek columns in a suburban space.

Whatever you make of the trends that seem to be passing and those that are emerging remember for your Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford property you can always, stick with what you love, regardless of what's in or out.
