As we reflect on our favorite spaces of 2019, they all have one thing in common: color. From the golden yellow silk carpeting in Giancarlo Valle’s latest apartment project, to Dorothée Meilichzon’s continued affinity for bold statement walls, we’re seeing splashes of mustard-tinged ochre, warm terra cotta, earthy green, deep navy, and eye-catching red in nearly every noteworthy space.
After years of cool Scandinavian minimalism, we’re finding this trend incredibly refreshing, to say the least. Not only does color add dimension and visual interest to a space, it also invites a bit more experimentation than the stark-white rooms of 2017. Vibrant textiles, colorful marble, and curved furniture upholstered in textural fabrics like bouclé, velvet, and shearling naturally complement these color-saturated spaces.
Best of all, this palette play shows no signs of stopping—expect even more statement walls, eye-catching carpeting, and bold furniture into 2020 and beyond. Swoon over a few of our favorite saturated spaces below, and heed our advice to nail the look in your home.
