Design Trends for 2019

With every new year comes new trends in interior decorating. We understand that it can be difficult to follow the ever-changing progression of design, which is why the Perry Homes team has collected some of the latest trends that will influence interior design this year.

Black and White Decor

Black and white decor is a classic trend that has been coming in and out of style for decades. While its comeback has been imminent for several years now, we predict that 2019 will mark the peak of its popularity. The natural contrast between the colors of black and white gives your home a striking look while remaining elegant.

The combination of black and white can be utilized in a multitude of ways. Many pieces of furniture feature both black and white in the design. If you wish to make a statement, opt for combined black and white pieces that feature designs with sharp lines. If you want a softer look, consider combining solid white and solid black pieces of furniture. A black coffee table featured near a white couch, for example, can soften the dramatic effect of black and white while also incorporating these colors to make your room look sleek and modern.

The art you place in your home says a lot about your style. Black and white art adds a layer of sophistication to an otherwise bland wall. Every photograph you take can be printed in black and white, and this dramatic effect can make even the most simple photograph interesting and fun. There are also painters and sketch artists that utilize black and white to make beautiful art. Be on the lookout specifically for charcoal paintings and sketches to take full advantage of the benefits of black and white.

Utilize Natural Lighting

No matter what types of light fixtures we may invent, nothing can beat the soft beauty of natural light. Many of our Perry Homes are designed with open spaces and expansive windows in order for you to enjoy natural lighting to its fullest extent.

Strategically place your furniture to allow your favorite pieces to be featured under the natural lighting. Be aware of where the sun hits your room during every part of the day, as you never want your room to be shrouded in too much darkness or for your guests to have the sun shining in their eyes.

Bold Backsplashes

2019 is the year to kick your kitchen up a notch with a bold backsplash for your wall. While there are many options for backsplashes, this is the year to get adventurous with your choices. Choose a vibrant color or interesting pattern for your backsplash in order for it to make the most impact possible. For those who are feeling particular ambitious, you may even consider using a blown up photo for a backsplash.
