Many people like to change up their decor for a fresh start to the new year. Color trends are constantly changing, and the right color palate can give your apartment a luxurious and modern feel. Although many renters may be restricted from painting walls or cabinets in their apartments, you can find other ways of incorporating colors such as area rugs, throw pillow and throws, bedding and accent pieces. Here are some popular trends for 2019.
Muted pastel shades are pastels that are much more subtle that your stereotypical spring pinks and purples. They are pale, calming and interesting to look at and can provide some color and personality to a neutral or white space.
Try pairing muted pastels with gold accent pieces for a glamorous and clean feel.
Jewel tones are the deep, bold greens, purples, blues and reds, but can also come in any color. Dark greens are especially popular this year. If you don’t want to be limited by jewel tones year round, try getting a few accent pieces, throw pillows or bath towels to give your space some bold pops of color that are not too permanent or expensive.
Monochromatic color schemes are a fun way to get creative with color and decor, and are easy to incorporate without painting and entire wall. To experiment with monochromatic schemes, pick a color such as the dark green mentioned in the jewel tones description, and get various decor or accent pieces that are different shades of dark green.
This could be some wall art, some throw pillows and an area rug. To get the full monochromatic effect, try to use around three or four shades and decorate from a more neutral base (walls, carpet, etc... are a neutral color)
Earth tones are always a safe bet in general. This year, terra cotta and mushroom are two popular earth tones. Terra cotta could make for a beautiful area rug or table setting, while mushroom could be elegant and lasting on an investment piece such as a sofa or headboard.
Finding simple ways to decorate an apartment can be such an easy yet fulfilling project to start your new year or freshen up for a new season. How will you incorporate 2019’s color trends?
