Pinterest Predicts the Big Trends of 2018
You probably already have a Pinterest account filled with your favorite looks of the week. From that dream bathroom you hope to one day renovate to easy DIY party ideas for your best friend's bash next month, Pinterest is where we save everything we love, inside the home and out.
Each year Pinterest digs into what its users are pinning and predicts what trends will pop in the coming year. According to the latest data, 2018 will be filled with bold decor moves. From the looks making a big... comeback (we're looking at you, terrazzo) to daring new ideas for that fifth wall in your home (hint: if you don't know what we mean, look up), here we round up our favorites from the Pinterest 100.Continue to 2 of 20 below.

Terrazzo Is Back
You probably remember terrazzo as the choice flooring of the 1970s. But this funky material is back in a big way. According to Pinterest, saves for terrazzo are up 316%, foreshadowing a reemergence for this mixed material. From entryway flooring to countertops to ceilings, designers are already starting to embrace terrazzo. If you're not ready to fully commit, DIY a few accessories for your home to test the waters.Continue to 3 of 20 below.

Give Metallics a Try
With pins up 423%, we can bet we'll see mixed metals in kitchens, bathrooms and more. It's no longer a faux pas to mix golds with silvers or brass with copper, so there's no reason not to experiment. These heavy gold barstools are a beautiful, non-permanent way to add metallics to your home, but don't shy away from adding copper faucets or rose gold cabinet pulls this year. Just make sure to pick a dominant metal finish to guide the design scheme and accent away!Continue to 4 of 20 below.

Doors with Bright Colors
Want to upgrade your curb appeal without a lot of effort? This year, add a coat of feisty red or bold blue to your front door to welcome guests in style. Saves for the trend are up 121% year-over-year, and it's clear why: bright front doors easily transform your home's exterior for less than you spent on that pair of fancy yoga pants.Continue to 5 of 20 below.

You probably already know that greenery is in, but Pinterest users are obsessed with patterned plants (like this prayer plant)—and so are we. With a whopping 533% increase in saves, expect to see pattern plants everywhere this year.

Mix Up Your Flooring
We adore hardwood flooring as much as the next decor enthusiast, but sometimes it gets a little dull. Sure, you can mix it up with fun rugs, but this year we are really into patterned woodwork, like in this stunning living space. Saves for herringbone patterns, a fun update to classic parquet flooring, are up 131%—and while it's a little more intricate to install, it's so worth it.Continue to 7 of 20 below.

Embrace the Home Spa
This year, bring the spa into your home. Pinterest users are feeling spa-like accessories and decor 269% more this year than the last. And it's obvious why: Giving your bathroom a simple spa makeover is incredibly simple (think bamboo, candles and neutral colors) and adds a chic, restful element to your space.Continue to 8 of 20 below.

Embrace the Fifth Wall
Goodbye accent wall, hello statement ceilings. Saves are up 310% this year, which means we'll be seeing more gorgeously wallpapered ceilings and fewer accent walls. But if wallpapering your ceiling is too much effort, try painting it a vibrant color to add warmth and interest to a large space.Continue to 9 of 20 below.

Large, Bold Art Prints
Got lots of wall space and nothing to fill it with? You're not alone. Pinterest users are saving pins for big wall art a whopping 637% more than in previous years. In 2018, fill that empty space with a textured rug, a handmade abstract painting—or even blow up a favorite travel photo for a big impact.Continue to 10 of 20 below.

Baby Shower vs. Sip and See
Say goodbye to traditional baby showers and hello to the sip and see. If you've never been to one, a sip and see is usually thrown by parents and offers an opportunity to drop in and meet a new baby (or a new puppy) after he or she has joined the family. With an increase of 218% over last year, expect to get more invites to meet newborns this year.Continue to 11 of 20 below.

A Boho Baby Shower

Saves for boho baby showers are up 306%, an indication that the boho baby trend isn't going away anytime soon. We love ditching the traditional blues and pinks for a theme that feels more personalized and fresh. Plus, who doesn't love endless floral crowns and tents for grownups?Continue to 12 of 20 below.

Throw a Sprinkle Shower
It's clear that Pinterest users love celebrating babies, but "sprinkle showers" (AKA low-key events for second or third-time mamas) are up 180% this year. A sprinkle shower is a great way to celebrate a repeat mom without a big to-do. Plus, it's the perfect excuse to cover everything in rainbow sprinkles.Continue to 14 of 20 below.

Don't Adhere to Seasons

Horizontal wooden slat fences make a garden or yard feel larger and more modern, so it's no surprise that saves are up 333%. You can choose to keep the slats further apart for an airy, open feel or tighter if you want more privacy, but either way you'll want to throw endless BBQs to make your neighbors jealous.Continue to 20 of 20 below.
