Planning to refresh your home in 2018? Consider small renovations that make a tremendous impact on your home’s design – such as changing your paint color, furnishings, tile or lighting!

Here are 5 trending design elements this year to get you started. For the full article and more trends from House Beautiful, click here:

  1. Monochromatic color schemes: Don’t be afraid to try tone-on-tone designs this year – in fact, it’s encouraged! One way to achieve this approach is to incorporate similar colors and tones in your walls, curtains and furnishings in varying shades.

  2. Velvet materials: Another popular trend this year is to include velvet in small ways throughout home accents and decor – this can be achieved by selecting furniture, pillows or throw rugs that feature velvet. We love that these bar stools were covered with the plush material to add visual interest and dimensional texture!
