How to Incorporate Taupe Into Your Home 

Taupe is the new black! Well, technically taupe is a happy mix of grey and brown, but regardless, taupe is back and better than ever!

This in-between shade of grey and brown has always been quietly hiding amongst its popular counterparts, but 2018’s shift towards warmer, earthy design has rightfully pushed taupe into the spotlight. From light to dark, this hue matches beautifully with creams, whites, and browns. The result is an organic and sophisticated color combination that is warm and inviting.

These are our top tips for incorporating taupe flooring, walls and fabrics into your home.

Tasteful Taupe Walls

Used simply as paint or within a fabulous wallpaper design, taupe adds an understated sense of style, warmth and elegance to your walls. An effortless chameleon, taupe is neither modern, nor classical. It’s exuding a timeless glamor that is appealing in both high and low light, and matches taupe flooring well!

Taupe Flooring 

Taupe is commonly found in natural stone and hardwood, making it an easy choice when searching for ways to incorporate this hue, as well as with taupe vinyl flooring.

Taupe flooring looks beautiful when juxtaposed against crisp whites, making a bold statement against bathroom and kitchen cabinetry.

Those who favor the simplicity and freshness of white furniture will love the unexpected harmony between warm taupe flooring and bright furnishings. Of course, taupe carpeting is also an excellent choice for painting a cozy and plush canvas to build upon in your home.

Taupe Fabrics

Fabric is one of the most important design elements in our home. It helps to set the mood for a room and creates a comfortable space. The timeless neutrality of taupe fabrics makes it a clear choice for investment pieces like sofas and draperies.

As style and taste changes through the years, taupe hardwood flooring, walls and fabrics will adapt and work harmoniously with a variety of accent colors.

Home Interior Design Trends in 2018

Interior design trends are constantly evolving — transforming the way we think about our tastes and surroundings. And now, with the growing popularity of design-centric television and social media, great design seems more attainable than ever. So with a new year upon us, it’s time to take a look at 2018’s most inspiring interior design trends. 

Eclectic and Exciting

We’ve said our goodbyes to our “matchy matchy” ways of the past, in favor of a more eclectic, curated design aesthetic. 2018 brings an exciting assortment of materials for a high style, completely personalized home. Mixed metals, tons of color, and luxurious textures are popping up across the spectrum. Trendy brass looks fresh when paired with classic chrome, and pops of purple add an air of royalty to an otherwise neutral color palette.

A Small World

The world seems smaller and smaller every day, so it’s no surprise that global influences are increasingly gaining popularity in design. From African Mud Cloth pillows, to Turkish Kilim rugs, to sleek, Scandinavian anything — 2018 home design trends are all about an interesting mix of worldly style.

Hygge Happiness

Speaking of international interior design, you might not know how to say it, but Scandinavian term Hygge, (pronounced “hue-guh”) seems to be the word of the moment amongst interior designers. With the intention of “enjoying life’s simple pleasures,” this lifestyle embraces clean, soft lines to create serene surroundings. Cozy faux fur throws and shaggy rugs mix with beautiful wood flooring, surfaces and natural stone to create a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Statement Flooring

From a rustic farmhouse living room, to a sleek and modern tiled bathroom, flooring is going big for interior design in 2018. Wide plank wood flooring feels bold and upscale — instantly updating the look of any home, whether it’s traditional, modern, or anything in between. With styles to fit every design aesthetic, new, stunningly proportioned flooring makes a big statement while remaining low maintenance.

Pleasing Patterns

Soft lines, airy shapes, and whimsical florals are slowly becoming the preferred prints, over the geometric, strong patterns of years past. In 2018, we’ll swap out that old lattice area rug and chevron window-treatment, in favor of something more neutral and organic. Vintage, eclectic patterns and fluid watercolor-inspired design will have an elevated, artisanal appeal.
