As well as being a go-to for fashion fans, Pinterest is a popular haunt for interior design buffs searching for inspiration. In fact, home decoration content is up 75 percent on the social network. Here are the trends in store for 2018 according to Pinterest.

Outsized artworks: say goodbye to empty walls! In 2018, walls will be covered with large-sized photo prints and other outsized artworks.

Patterned plants: the year’s trendiest plants have geometric motifs and touches of color.

Metal mix: metal is branching out from basic utensils to become a stylish element of home decor. Copper is matched with pieces in brass or silver.

FEATURED STORIES

Terrazzo style: often seen in Italian palaces, terrazzo flooring, made by setting chips of stone, marble, quartz or glass into a binder like cement, fell out of fashion in the 1970s. However, it’s working on a comeback via wallpaper prints, countertop motifs or in little touches on accessories.

Raise the roof: white ceilings are so passé; cover them in wallpaper or in strong color for an instant update.

Spa style: the designs and accessories usually associated with spas and hydrotherapy centers are heading into homes in 2018.

Marquetry: interiors gain prestige with sumptuous furniture pieces decorated with marquetry, the subtle art of creating scenes or patterns using different woods or materials.

Go green: think soothing tones for 2018, such as sage green.

On the floor: wood floors get a facelift with colors and patterns.

Colorful doors: home decor starts at the front door, so paint it a bright color for 2018.

Methodology: Pinterest’s teams analyzed saves and searches by its 200 million users over the course of 2017. This data was used to identify the top 100 trends in 10 main categories. Trends are identified by increased interest among users for a given subject from one year to the next, based on growth in searches and saves, and taking into account the seasonality of the subject.
