2019 Interior Design Trends for Your Columbus Apartment

Spring is fast approaching, and while many Columbus apartment residents mark the beginning of the season by tidying up their space, others prefer to overhaul their interior aesthetic entirely.

Changing the interior design of your apartment is a great way to reevaluate and reenergize your sense of personal style, while also giving your unit a deserving refresh. While it’s important to refurbish your Columbus apartment according to your unique eye, infusing the most current interior design trends helps to make your space look more modern and stylish.

To get you started, here is a list of 5 apartment interior design trends for 2019:

Incorporate Living Coral: Pantone’s 2019 Color of the Year 

Every year Pantone chooses a Color of the Year, a trend that affects the art, fashion, technology, entertainment and home décor. The chosen color of 2019 is Living Coral—which is, according to Pantone, “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.  View Video

Whether it’s used in throw pillows, table furnishings, lampshades or even an accent rug, working Living Coral into the décor of your Columbus apartment will help give your apartment a fresh feel and vivid aesthetic.

Hand-Crafted Furniture

Columbus apartment residents don’t like the feeling that their décor is cookie-cutter or plain.  That’s why one of the biggest interior design trends of 2019 is adding furniture that is–or at least has the appearance of being–artisanal.

Whether that’s a reclaimed wood headboard, a custom-designed vanity or a unique-looking armchair, infusing hand-crafted elements keeps your apartment looking distinctive and interesting.

Curved Furniture

Organic shapes have made a big appearance in 2019 apartment décor, as people look to create more intimate settings. The rigid-lined sofas, chairs and end tables of decades past is now being substituted for updated, curvier versions.

Utilizing curved furniture not only allows for a more comfortable way to sit and chat with friends, but it frees up more space to add (or not add) more unique design elements and gives off the feeling that your apartment is roomier to guests.

Urban-Inspired Décor

What was once considered a public nuisance is now making its way into Columbus apartments in 2019. Street art and urban-inspired décor takes that iconic gritty design style and blends it with more traditional themes to create edgy and visually stunning statement pieces.

Examples of urban-inspired décor include graffiti photography on the walls, interesting sculptures or statues, conventional table decorations splashed with spray paint and industrial furniture like metal kitchen bar stools.

Plant Life

Whether real or fake, incorporating big, bold plants into your apartment is a naturalistic and eye-catching way to boost your décor. Ideas include flanking your couch with potted trees, situating a fern in a corner or adding vases of flowers throughout the space. Just remember, if you do opt for a live plant, to follow its proper care and keeping instructions.
