Liven up your space with this year’s hottest interior design trends.

Spring is a time for new beginnings. The temperature warms, flowers bloom, and many of us are motivated to do some deep cleaning and decluttering. Because the season brings about an air of cleansing and rebirth, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your home and give it some fresh, rejuvenating energy. Don’t know where to start? Take some inspiration from San Francisco real estate design trends that are currently blossoming.

1. Maximalism 

For the past few years, minimalism has been all the rage. However, experts like Curbed SF editor Brock Keeling are predicting bolder decoration in 2019. Integrating a sense of whimsy and playfulness into home decor can make spaces livelier, adding more fun and character. Unexpected statement pieces like colorful appliances as well as furniture and accents inspired by street art can make a room really pop. 

2. Lamps 

Jon De La Cruz, an interior architect, and design expert is calling for more lamps to brighten up the year. Floor and table lamps tend to be less harsh than all-encompassing overheads, casting rooms in a more inviting glow. Not only do lamps tend to bask rooms in a more flattering light, but they can also infuse spaces with a romantic, intimate ambiance. 

3. Conversation Pits

Sunken living rooms are in--again. Beth Spotswood of Alta Magazine and the San Francisco Chronicle predicts that this popular mid-century trend is on the rise. Characterized by clean lines and coziness, conversation pits not only give any space a unique look, but they also serve as practical secluded spaces--perfect when entertaining a larger crowd. 

4. Eco-Friendly Technology

San Francisco is known for its environmental efforts. Because the city’s eco-friendly initiatives are among the most progressive in the country, it makes sense that its homes would be, too. Installing technology like solar panels and smart energy meters can help save the planet while also saving you money. It’s a win-win. 

5. Agate Stone

Interior designer Andi Pepper forecasts that agate stone will play a big role in interior design, as its natural patterned symmetry is both aesthetically interesting and sophisticated. A truly chameleon-like material, depending on how it’s used, agate stone can act as an eye-catching centerpiece to add flair or a more muted element to elegantly ground a space.
