With 2018 halfway through, there’s no better time to start thinking about all of the fun ways you can refresh your space before the end of the year. Of course, any interior enthusiast knows that this is easier said than done—there’s so much to consider, after all!

From swapping out your throws to freshening up your light fixtures to updating your window treatments, it’s tough to know exactly where and how to begin. Fortunately, the interior color trends of 2018 are the style guide you’ve been waiting for.

If you’re at a loss for ideas, all you have to do is take a look at the stunning colors below to get inspired to make your next move. The hottest hues on the horizon are basically your blueprint for filling up your space with new trendy styles and decor.

Black Is Back and Here to Stay

You might’ve noticed that black has been taking over spaces far and wide in recent seasons—everything from bedrooms to bathrooms to kitchens are being outfitted with this edgy hue, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Whether you boldly add it all over or you reserve it for a select few accents, it’s sure to give your space an ultra-cool facelift.





Deep Onyx

Pair this hue with natural wood for an equally warm and edgy design. Even better if you enhance it with an airy pendant light like this one.








An Abundance of Berries

From strawberry red to raspberry pink to blueberry, well, blue, berry-inspired color palettes are bringing all kinds of vivacious cheer to interior spaces in the upcoming season.

The beauty of this color trend is its versatility—bolder style sensibilities can select a bright red with which to make a striking style statement while more subdued styles will benefit from a softer raspberry hue to add increased warmth to their aesthetic.






Calm and Collected Blue-Green

More sophisticated than its brighter pastel counterpart, the quiet blue-green trend going into the new year is all about infusing homes with calming, grounded vibes.

The feeling this color evokes makes it a no-fail choice for the mellow nature of a bedroom, but it’s neutral enough that it will quietly enhance virtually any room it lives in.






All the Shades of Gray

All of the various gray shades and tones will be enhancing homes in the coming seasons. Whether your preference is a stony purple-gray or you prefer a cool blue-gray, you can rest assured that you’ll be incorporating one of the hottest hues around.

What we love most about gray, in all its forms, is that it’s a refreshing take on a neutral color. Sure, beiges are great, but when you want to add an extra hint of cool, you can’t go wrong with this hot hue.






Sunshine Yellow to Gilded Goldenrod

 If you’re looking for ways to brighten up your space, look no further. Spaces everywhere are about to be filled with the uplifting feel of sunshine-y hues and we’re all the way here for it.

Feeling a little adventurous? Try pairing this color with another trendy hue, like the black and goldenrod combination pictured here, to make a strong and enviable statement.






Warm Beiges for the Win

The brown-beiges of yesteryear are getting a much-needed upgrade with warmer undertones and the result is nothing short of stunning.

This contemporary take on an old staple can be integrated into any aesthetic and it will bring with it a renewed sense of pretty yet grounded sophistication.
