I always like to go through them to find out what regular people like you and I are interested in as far as home decor is concerned.
These are not trends determined by companies, or fashion designers, or interior decorators. They are just the home decor topics that more people on Pinterest have been searching for in the last couple of months.
The big thing I noticed about this 2019 home decor trends list? There are a lot of DIY home decor projects! Which you know is right up my alley, so you might be seeing a couple of these in my upcoming projects…
1. Painted Floor Tiles
The first DIY project on our 2019 home decor trends is painted floor tiles. These are done using stencils and paint that goes right over your existing floor and can be used on pretty much any surface.
It’s inexpensive, relatively easy to do and doesn’t require ripping up your old floor to replace it.
That makes painted floor tiles a great way to update your room without spending a lot of money (like my mother did with the wood floors in her bathroom).
2. Textile Art
Next on our list of 2019 home decor trends is textile art. Searches for this are up 1718% on Pinterest.
Textile art can include macrame wall hangings (which have been back in style for a while now), and printed or woven fabric that is hung on the wall as art.
It’s an easy way to add texture and interest to a wall…and it’s also easy to take down when you decide you want a change.
3. Contemporary Fireplaces
Contemporary fireplaces add a sleek and modern look to any space whether it’s indoors or out. And searches for them are up 763% on Pinterest.
You can go for the full built-in experience like my mother did in her living room.
This one* is an electric fireplace that has a built-in blue tooth speaker so it can stream music from your phone.
How cool is that? (Making a note to myself for my next room makeover)
Or for a less expensive option, get a table top fireplace* that gives you the ambiance without the work of having to install it.
4. Chalk Art
Chalk art is the next home decor trend on the 2019 list. Searches for it are up 664%.
Using chalk art as room decor is another way to add texture and interest to your walls, with the added benefit that it’s not very expensive. And it’s easy to update when you want a change.
It’s also not hard to do as a DIY project. This is a great book* to learn how to do your own. (This is on my “to do” list for this year).
Or you can take the quick way out and use a stencil to create the design you want.
5. Acrylic Pour Painting
Acrylic pour painting is another way to make DIY art for your home.
I have to admit I’ve never tried this, but you can get some really interesting contemporary color and texture combinations using this technique.
Which is probably why it’s becoming very popular. Pinterest searches for it are up 660%.
6. Tin Interiors
Tin interiors is the next home decor search term that is on the rise (up 563%) on Pinterest.
I may not have any experience with acrylic pour painting, but I definitely do with tin interiors…or at least faux tin interiors.
I love installing faux tin tiles on the ceiling. Especially since it goes right over the popcorn that I have everywhere in my house!
I’ve done it in my kitchen and my den. And my mother has used them in her bathroom.
They are so simple to put up and I just love the way they look!
7. Ceramic Pottery
I have never really thought of ceramic pottery as being in or out of style.
With its versatility in color, style and function, it has always been a good accessory option for any room.
However, according to Pinterest, it is trending more than usual this year, with searches up 475%.
8. Bold Print Wallpaper
Bold print wallpaper is another one of the 2019 home decor trends that I can totally get behind. Searches for it are up 401% on Pinterest.
I have always loved how wallpaper adds pizzazz to a room. I came by the love of wallpaper honestly, since my mother also loves it.
And she really isn’t afraid to go bold with the print as you can see from her living room makeover.
9. Geometric Paint Patterns
Geometric paint patterns are another DIY wall decor option with an increase in searches on Pinterest (up 225%).
You can make your geometric paint patterns by using tape to create the shapes on your wall and then painting them different colors.
Or by buying a geometric wall stencil.*
Either way, it’s a fairly easy DIY project that won’t cost much money.
10. Mustard Yellow
Even though yellow isn’t on the paint companies’ 2019 trending paint colors lists, searches for it on Pinterest are up 45%…so it looks like people are into it, even if the paint companies aren’t.
So if yellow is your color, this may be your year to shine!
Well, that’s it for this year’s trending Pinterest home decor searches. Hopefully, you’ve found some inspiration for a project or two of your own. (I told you there were a lot of DIYs on the list!)
