photo: Nick Simonite
As we reflect on 2018 and all that it held in the design realm from new restaurant openings to the most wanted hotel stays, some themes rang true throughout: cookie cutter is out, the right kind of DIY is in, and carrying one theme or trend throughout your home, hotel, venue, shop or restaurant is definitely out. Expressing your unique personality through a variety of styles, collected items, and special finds make for a timeless yet on-trend space.

We partnered with Hayneedle, the online home furnishings and décor store (including the world’s largest outdoor living selection), to break down six design trends for 2019 and how to get the look in your own space. From ultra-modern Scandi design trends to bringing back more traditional styles in your home, find your look for the new year with this guide.

Top design tips: Keep your palette muted, decor minimal and opt for a statement piece such as wall art or lighting.
