It is what is known as the Joy of Missing Out, a step beyond the Hygge that triumphed in 2017. Therefore, in general the shapes become curved and more envolvente, the dimensions of key pieces, such as sofas , they grow up: all in honor of making the home a space from which to escape from noise and stress. These are the trends and design in decoration for 2018, according to

The first outstanding trend, according to, is the interest towards very aseptic spaces, with simple and straight lines, where the warm spot is made by natural materials such as wood. The white and the gray are the two colors that are used to shape neutral spaces and, in many cases, are accompanied by the latest developments in home automation.

In any case, there is a certain interest in making the bathroom a place with character, on horseback between the natural and the romantic. The paper painted with large vegetable motifs, large monster leaves, bananas, or more complex motifs is one of the most obvious trends. In addition, the golden finish reaches accessories such as mirrors or grips.

The ‘Total White’ was completed. More and more we see options such as high-gloss cabinets and low-key furniture, for example: a combination that visually enlarge the kitchens. In addition, new colors are introduced, such as the navy blue. Black and gray are trend. Also, the use of materials that add to the kitchen a look, see imitations of cement, also of oxidized steel, natural stones.

As for space, simplicity prevails. The storage space is reduced to the minimum necessary. In this sense, the empty kitchens, without frontal furniture, win adept. The space is freed on the water zone and preparation in order to achieve better visual integration in the area of ​​the day. Vinyl carpets also conquer the kitchen.

Bye, bye ‘vintage’. The excess was over, the mix. The trend is towards a slightly exaggerated Mid Century style, where neutral colors prevail, soft-lined paperwork and suggestive shapes on sofas. The metallic finishes, especially in luminaires, make a slightly strident note of accent.

Of course, open spaces are still a tendency, but now they seek to separate without visually interrupting. The fixed glass cloths and sliding doors of the same material keep the concept of open space, but at the same time free spaces.

The lights are becoming increasingly important. They are a fundamental element to provide a singular and sculptural interior point. A good light is able to describe a space by itself. In this sense, it is clear that the roof demands an important place in the decoration. If floors and walls are enriched with textures and colors, the ceiling also looks like painted papers, with colors or plaster moldings to create an impact.

In decoration, the importance resides in the tones, not in pure colors. There are several colors that will dominate the interiors in 2018:
