Zillow Lays Framework For Interior Design In 2019

author on Jan 28, 2019

In a report last week, Zillow Group gave its two cents on what the real estate database company thinks will be the must-have interior design elements for homes selling in 2019. Many are counter to the typical Hamptons design popular on the South Fork.

While the East End has seen more modern builds with “clean and simple industrial materials” that Zillow Home Trend Forecast says are leading the year’s design trends, farmhouse chic has fallen from grace. Out with shingled cottages, and in with industrial glass and metal.

In a statement, Zillow design expert Kerrie Kelly said bold “showroom-like” color schemes and rustic aesthetics with unshielded lighting are best left in 2018.

“The overtly rustic, farmhouse chic design trend is easing up,” Ms. Kelly said. “It 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. Exposed light bulbs will be concealed once again, softening the harsher light of an exposed bulb to a warmer glow.”

In lieu of farmhouses, 2019 will bring out subtle and classic color palettes, including earth tones and cool blues, according to the report—something many Hamptons cottages that have nautical living spaces are familiar with.

Zillow speculates stark contrast and raw materials, including industrial vibes from concrete and metal, will be popular. Artists may flourish as people crave hand-painted or stitched pieces for natural fiber rugs and wall hangings, the report said.

Homeowners will look for more smart home technology with voice-activation capabilities to assist in daily tasks and routines, especially for the kitchen.

“Smart home products will gain popularity, matched by an equal rise in calm, meditative spaces for a way to disconnect,” Ms. Kelly said. These spaces include acoustic panels, sheer fabrics and colored lights “to create a tranquil feel.”

Chairs are, without a question, a favorite of decorators and collectors alike.

They intentionally, by design, take center stage and serve in part as the face of any room. And, our experiences with them are inherently intimate: With some exceptions, people generally spend the majority of their time enjoying any residential interior seated in some way. “Chair” is indeed a very broad category, for which there are seemingly limitless subcategories — lounge chair, armchair, desk chair, etc. But when it ... by Andrew Bowen
