Interior Trend Forecast For 2018

Every year there is a new renovation show hitting our television screens. If you’re an avid viewer, there’s a high chance you’ve been infected by the interior decorating bug.

It’s understandable these shows ignite your inner creativity tempting you to replace all your tired belongings with new trendy decor. Creating a new look for your home can also be as simple as interior painting.

But before you jump to this step, do you know what trends will be in for the coming year? Read our tips to help you with redecorating this season.

Millennial Pink – is it here to stay?

Millennial Pink was a massive hit in 2016. Its popularity in interior painting remained throughout 2017 and we predict it to continue at a lesser intensity this year.

Pale and powdery pinks are still trending. We recommend utilising trending colours for accents that you can easily change, such as throw cushions and interior painting.

As for other colours to look out for, retro is looking promising. The experts predict shades of browns and terracotta, deep pinks, burgundy and teal, even splashes of bright blue and orange.

If you’ve gone crazy with this phase and painted your walls pink, you need not worry. The experts at AM Painting are always up to date with the latest trends and are here to help you choose the right colours for your interior painting project.

Trending copper and millennial pink bedroom


Copper and rose gold had their moment in interior styling exploding in popularity a few years ago. While that trend will significantly subside, the use of copper will remain prominent.

Copper is a classic metal so it will never completely go away. However it may not be as popular as it has been in recent years. If you’re incorporating copper into your interior, we suggest being selective with its use.

Due to the recent popularity of copper, experts are predicting that silver metallics will make a solid comeback this year.

Earthy Tones

Dark wood and earthy tones are also set to make a comeback. This is a refreshing change from the recently popular blonde woods and Scandinavian style. Experts predict that Rosewood and Walnut will be a big hit in the coming year. Experts also forecast the increasing popularity of blackened surface effects and charring techniques.

Trends are rapidly evolving and interior painting is a quick and easy way to update your home. It’s a cost effective and simple way to brighten the look of your home while also adding value. You can also easily make changes to align with new trends.
