The Most Popular Interior Decorating Trends on Pinterest


Homes to Love is always on the hunt for fresh decorating ideas and the latest interior design trends, especially at the start of a new year. So when Pinterest released a recent report on the top trends to try in 2018, we were all ears.

Just like fashion, a new year or a change in seasons usually sparks a desire to renew our style, clear the clutter, and start fresh. As our needs, wants, and tastes are constantly evolving, the notion that design is never done is what keeps people coming back for inspiration.

With more than 14 billion ideas, the home category continues to grow on Pinterest, with a 75 percent increase in pins year after year. People are thinking big and small, from full renovations to stylish accents. Whether you’re looking to renovate or redecorate this year, here’s what Pinterest users are forecasting for our homes in 2018.

Resort-inspired Style

Think spa-inspired bathrooms and rattan furniture to bring the vacation vibes to your home. Saves for “spa bathrooms” have increased by 269 percent.

Mixed Metallics

Metals mesh with any color palette, but to really amp up a space, mix different finishes together. Saves for “mixed metals” have increased by 423 percent.

Say “Hello” To Terrazzo
