What we don’t have: a crystal ball. What we do have: a list of 100 spot-on trend predictions for 2019, and a whoooole lot of data to back it up. Pinterest recently released its much-anticipated Pinterest 100, an annual list of everything that’s trending right now across the home decor space, as well as fashion, travel, food and more. And really, who better to tell us what’s cool in terms of home trends for 2019 than the data gurus at Pinterest? It’s basically an ever-changing vision board of the things tastemakers are clicking, searching, and saving across the Internet, before they get the goods IRL, style it nicely in their homes, and post the swoon-worthy final product on Instagram. (And it’s also a fun memento of design trends past—raise your hand if you’re just as embarrassed by your 2013 pins as I am!) Scroll on to see what made the list this year, and buckle up, because you’re going to start seeing these everywhere for the rest of 2019.
Top Home Trends for 2019
1. Mustard Yellow
And it was all yellow… mustard yellow, to be exact. Searches for this color have gone up 45% year-over-year, which doesn’t surprise us much, since this sunny hue is such a great way to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral space. And you can go as big or small with it as you want—from a little vase to a massive area rug or anything in between.
