If you're looking to start the new year with a fresh look inside your house, you'll find some hot home trends in Sioux Falls.
From velvet to violet, we'll open the door to 2018's most popular looks.
This is Linda Duba's first year celebrating the New Year in her new home. Duba moved to a loft in the new Jones421 building in downtown Sioux Falls in the fall. Along with the move, she decided to give her home decor a fresh look.
"This loft is really urban-centered, so basically nothing I had would have fit in here at all," Duba said.
Her loft has a lot of neutral tones mixed in with pops of color, such as orange chairs and blue ottomans.
"Kind of fun, a little bit out there," Duba said.
Another big trend you'll see this year is brass.
"In your accessories, in your hardware," Montgomery's Furniture Design Consultant Carly Ellsworth said.
Ellsworth says in addition to mixing metals, expect to see a lot of natural elements inside homes.
"I think you're going to see a lot of use of live-edge wood, the woven textures, and Tibetan lamb. Those types of elements give a more organic feel to places that could be sterile," Ellsworth said.
However, what you see on the floor might not be natural wood. LVP, or luxury vinyl plank, is a big seller at Montgomery's in Sioux Falls.
"They make it using a high density printer, so you can get a lot of texture in there. It looks like a natural stone tile or wood," Ellsworth said.
What's behind the rise of this vinyl? It's waterproof, durable and fairly easy to install.
"We've seen a huge increase in this market specifically, even with houses up in the million dollar price point," Ellsworth said.
If you're just looking to update one thing in your room, this next trend might be more practical. Velvet is huge not just in clothing, but also home decor.
"We do see a big correlation between textures that are used in clothing design and home furnishings," Ellsworth said.
When it comes to hot colors, Ellsworth says expect to see a lot of contrast.
"We might have a really vibrant wall and then use a white or light gray sofa or furniture or vice versa," Ellsworth said.
Duba also makes sure she has plenty of storage room in her home and is trying to avoid clutter. Even though she has downsized, she still finds space for important possessions, such as pictures of her family.
"It's just cozy and comfortable. From the first day I moved in, it felt like home," Duba said.
Tone-on-tone is expected to be a big trend in 2018 as well. If you don't know what that means, it's mixing different shades of one color.
