Millennial Pink, in with… ? To find out what looks we’ll suddenly see everywhere in 2019, H&H executive editor Kimberley Brown reached out to designers for their New Year’s decorating plans and predictions. Their answers promise mindful yet daring decorating everyone will love.
“I’ve been focusing on tracking down handmade, global crafts in remote areas to support what I believe are disappearing artisans. In the past two years, I’ve traveled to Morocco, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Colombia and the Maritimes in Canada where I’ve purchased baskets, sculptures, wood bowls, beads, ceramics, linens, textiles, carvings, artifacts and much more. I love placing them in the perfect spots in our projects,” says Anne.
“People are starting to shift their focus towards more color and ceilings are becoming an important avenue. The ceiling plane is the final frontier when it comes to design! I like to use a high gloss finish or wallpaper to incorporate the ceiling into the overall design,” says Garrow.
“You will see a continued surge in materials such as clay, ceramic, natural stone, terracotta and wood — all things found in the environment,” says Alison.
“2019 will be heavily influenced by the ’70s and early ’80s. Corduroy, rattan, bamboo, sunken sections and busy marbles will play a big role, though hopefully not all together,” says Montana.
“Global politics have us looking to our local markets for materials, furnishings and inspiration. When it comes to finishes like wood, it’s bye-bye European white oak, hello Canadian Ash,” says Kyla.
