The Top 10 Home Trends for 2019 according to Pinterest

Every year in December Pinterest publishes the top 100 trends it predicts will be hot news in the year ahead. The Pinterest 100 features the top 10 highest trending searches across it’s 10 most popular categories. As Pinterest is one of the go-to apps for interior design inspiration, as well as one of the most popular ways of researching many home and fashion purchases, seeing what is popular in search is a fairly accurate way of predicting what trends are heading our way in the year ahead.

Last year the Pinterest 100 for 2018 predicted an increase in resort style with global influences across furniture and accessories. Mixed metallics along with herringbone patterns in tiling, flooring and textiles. I’ve seen some of these trends in homes across the pages of design magazines and instagram however there was also terrazzo which although popular in searches has not crossed into the home design market so readily.

So what’s in store this year? Let’s take a look at what trends Pinterest predicts are heading into our homes in 2019.

Rebel Yellow

Searches for mustard yellow are up 45%. Mustard yellow has been on the radar for a while now.
