Each year Pinterest comes out with their Pinterest 100 List. This is a roundup of all the top trends in design, health, fashion and travel they think will reign in the year to come based on a deep dive of their site searches.

We’ve combed through the trends to uncover everything you need to know on the design front. Below are the home design trends you'll be obsessed with in 2018.

Spa Bathrooms

The hot bathroom design trend these days is all about resort-style, spa bathrooms. Even if it’s all a fantasy, we want to walk into our bathroom and imagine a masseuse table tucked away in the corner and cucumber spa water sitting on a table next to the tub.  

Mod Nurseries

Gray Contemporary Nursery With White Crib, Driftwood Accent Wall

Serene, Travel Themed Nursery

The nursery trend design we can’t get enough is trending on Pinterest — gender-neutral mod nurseries. A boy’s room? A girl’s room? Who knows. The important thing is, the space looks chic, stylish and well-designed.

Mixed Metals

Neutral Brown Home Office With Gold Accents and Chalkboard

Sleek, Sophisticated Home Office Features Metallic Gold Accents

Metallic touches and rich texture in fabric and wallpaper give this home office a luxurious feel.

People often have very strong feelings about mixing metals, but the truth is mixed metals often look great together. Whether you are thinking of mixing it up in your home office, kitchen, bathroom or anywhere else, a new metal element will switch up the look.  

Terrazzo Flooring

Eclectic Blue Sitting Room Mixes Italian, Midcentury Modern Details

Saturated with rich blue and gold hues, this eclectic sitting room allows for a diverse mix of furniture and styles. Where the tumbled marble terrazzo floor calls Italian design to mind, the Sputnik-style light above is reminiscent of midcentury modern details.

It’s hard to imagine hardwood floors going completely out of style, but this year there’s a new floor in town — terrazzo tile. Terrazzo is concrete flooring with exposed marble chips polished smoothly. It has a clean mid-century, European-style feel to it. It’s pricey, but it can completely change the look of your space.   

Statement Ceilings

Green and White Country Kitchen

When planning a makeover, it’s easy to overlook the ceiling entirely. Lately though, the trend is all about highlighting it instead of hoping it fades into the background. This means embracing wallpaper, unique paint colors or using other materials such as trim or shiplap.

Bone-Inlaid Decor

Built-In Desk and Armoire in Light Blue Bedroom

Bedroom With Built-In Desk and Wardrobe

A Pottery Barn pin board above this custom-built in desk adds a vintage element to the bedroom's office area. The inlaid bone chair and clamrose shell lamp add a touch of nature to the space.

The eclectic Moroccan, boho influence is alive and well in this next trend — bone-inlaid furniture and decor. Intricately-carved pieces, such as this chair, can create big impact in any space. Bone-inlaid designs tend to be unique and one-of-a-kind. These pieces are worldly, eclectic and stylish.


Blue and Gray Bathroom Wall and Vanity With Brass Faucets and Hardware

Another trend we see popping up everywhere is herringbone pattern in wood flooring, tile and everything in between. Reminiscent of the chevron pattern that was popular years ago, herringbone creates a more dramatic look. You can use this pattern on the kitchen floor, kitchen backsplash or even a privacy screen.

Statement Doors

Colors That Pop

Doors are another spot around our homes that is often forgotten, but the trend right now is, go bold. Whether the door itself is a statement, your welcome mat is sassy or you decide to paint your doors a fun color, don’t be afraid to let your front and interior doors stand out.

Patterned Plants

The houseplant trend isn't dying down anytime soon. Patterned plants, plants that have a fun pattern or coloring to them, are the latest plant obsession.

Big Art

The key to the couple’s design aesthetic is layering contemporary, prewar and cultural elements seamlessly. In this entryway where crown molding sets the stage, a Moroccan pouf bought during travels sits together with a basket the two designed with a women’s collective in Rwanda. A collection of art also highlights this area including a silhouette photograph of Bryan and a message of social activism by artist Ann Lewis.

We love gallery walls, but big art pieces are having a moment right now. Whether it’s DIYed, a photo print or purchased, bold artwork is sometimes all you need to spruce up a room.


Coastal Kitchen with Contemporary Furniture

Sea Foam Green Contemporary Coastal Kitchen

Silver bar stools and bold pendant lights add a modern element to this sea-foam green transitional kitchen.

Sage is the way to go if you're a neutral-obsessed person who wants to dip into the world of color. This soft green color is showing up everywhere, and it works surprisingly well as a neutral in any room.
