Chip and Joanna Gaines might be seeing the end of their shiplap heyday.
According to the latest Zillow Home Trend Forecast, a modern aesthetic with clean and simple industrial materials will be the interior design trend of 2019. Modern glass, metal, and raw materials will replace reclaimed wood. To keep the overall look of metals and concrete from feeling too harsh, homeowners are opting for "warm modernism," by adding warmth with elements like natural wall coverings, wooden furniture, and handmade, earthy accent details.
"The overtly rustic, farmhouse chic design trend may not be gone altogether, but it's shifting toward a more modern style, pairing rustic elements like barn doors with modern materials like glass or metal," said Zillow Design Expert Kerrie Kelly in a news release. "Exposed lightbulbs will be concealed once again, softening the harsher light of an exposed bulb to a warmer glow."
Smart home technology is also gaining traction in more homes as today's homeowners expect connected and voice-activated products to be part of their lifestyle. At the same time, the increase of technology will be matched by an equal rise in calm, quiet, meditative spaces with acoustic panels, sheer fabrics and colored lights for a way to disconnect.
Bold, trendy color schemes are also on their way out. Finishes in deep blues and grays can add an extra layer of distinction to a space for the industrial vibe, but subtle and classic color palettes, featuring earth tones and cool blues, will define the 2019 color scheme.
