With every new year comes reflection, resolutions and not to mention re-decorating. As we reflect on the past year, we also begin to think about the year to come and what it will bring! Looking back on 2017, a snapshot of popular décor trends would highlight the sought-after all-white look, the popular millennial pink color, and glamoros copper accents. So what's next? Well lucky for you, we've got the 411 on the trends that will be favored in 2018!

It's out with the old and in with the new, trend forecasts are predicting a huge shift indoors. The 2018 décor word of the year is bold: bold patterns, bold colors and bold finishes. If your new year’s resolution is to refresh your home with some new décor, here are the top 5 trends you need to know.

1. Jewel Tones

While 2017 may have focused on neutral palettes, with lots of white and pastel pinks, 2018 is coming in hot with rich splashes of jewel tone colors. Think ruby reds, sapphires, emerald greens, and monarchial violets. Colors fit for kings and queens that bring luxury and drama to your space and are far from the days of stark white everything. If you aren't ready to say goodbye to your millennial pinks just yet, try mixing in deep berry accents to bring a fresh feel to the fading popular 2017 color.

2. High Contrast Palettes

A classic design trend that will be making a huge comeback in 2018 is black and white. This simple yet bold color combo has a strong décor presence and will bring a fresh feel to your space. Try incorporating black and white within your space with patterned decorative pillows, geometric prints, home décor accessories, and even flooring.

3. Gallery Walls

In the new year, gallery walls will headline as the new accent wall. Where a splash of color was previously used to create decorative interest in a space, we are now moving towards more intricate and visually stimulating décor. The key to a beautiful gallery wall is, the more variety of shapes and sizes of artwork you use, the better. Think asymmetrical balance!

4. Greenery

Some trends don’t die. If you've got green fingers, keep those plants growing because 2018 is keeping this trend alive. Greenery is a great way to naturally add a pop of colour to your space and bringing nature inside your space will have a naturally calming effect to balance the loudness of other 2018 décor trends.
