Being strategic and purposeful about purchasing behavior is a key ingredient to a sustainable ethos. From the initial question of, ‘Who you are purchasing from and what values do they stand for?’ to ‘What type of materials are used to build each item?’ To complement and highlight special pieces, we believe in designing an impeccable foundation through the use of timeless materials, ultimately resulting in bones that evoke emotion whenever you’re in your space.

For 2019, there is greater interest in biophilia–emphasizing the relationship between humankind and nature, and the connections between the two. Natural, organic materials–such as wood floors, stone, and daylight and plant life–remind us of the exterior and brings the outside and nature, in. We are machine- and technology-driven society, but nostalgic about past processes and handiwork, so opportunities for custom Millwork and crafted materials are very important.
—Angie Lee of FXCollaborative.
The Memphis movement is overtaking mid-century modern as the furnishing and color selection du jour. Primary colors and graphic shapes haven’t seen this much action since the eighties. Also in our space planning, we are turning away from straight, rigid furniture lines and choosing enveloping tub chairs and Vladimir Kagan- esque curved sofas.
—Carolyn Pressly of Carolyn Pressly Interiors.
Colors I see in for 2019 are blush, dusty pink and bronze. Warm colors and feminine tones for on the walls and dashes of soft pinks to break up expanses of taupe or neutrals will instantly update a tired room.

The dominance of minimalism and Scandinavian design, which is characterized by neutral colors and simple materials, is finally declining. In its place, bright colors and graphic patterns are becoming more prevalent in the home. Don’t be afraid to mix colors, patterns, and textures. Take a gallery wall to the next level by having it cover an entire wall, or add a dramatic, large-scale piece to your space. In this case, more is more.

The traditional beauty of floral patterns, either abstracted or straight up chintz, will be the pattern to use.

Right now, I am loving deep, rich jewel tones with an edge. Bold indigo, hunter and emerald green, and dark teal all feel ready to have a moment outside of the kitchen. We’re layering living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms with paints, fabrics, accessories, and rugs in these colors to create drama against a backdrop of white architectural elements.

Simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, so we will be gravitating toward making a little more impact in their kitchens, whether that’s with bolder color choices or graphics tiles. Either way, I predict we will be seeing more pop and punch in kitchens!
— Amy Sklar of Sklar Design.
Items made by hand using sustainable materials like jute, rice paper, and clay will be in, in 2019. We see people needing these grounding elements in their homes as a way to feel more in touch with the earth and their roots.
— Kristen Peña of K Interiors.
In uncertain times, people tend to want spaces that bring a sense of comfort and safety. A four-poster bed provides that type of feeling. It’s the closest thing you can get to a hug from a piece of furniture.
— Amy Sklar of Sklar Design.
