As a huge fan of Pinterest, I’m always eager to read the year-end wrap-up and predictions of what will be trending on the platform in the new year ahead.

The beauty of Pinterest is that so many of the projects on display are DIY-able, meaning huge savings over hiring someone to do the work for you.  Keep it within reason or you’ll end up with one of these fails.

In fact, searches for DIY projects on Pinterest made up 83 percent of all home searches in 2018. Remodeling and landscaping are popular as well.

So, what are Pinterest’s prognostications for 2019? Read on and find out.

Pinterest’s Top 2019 Home Decor Trends for Your Walls

Pantone is the undisputed leader when it comes to showing us the Color of the Year. In 2019, it’s “Living Coral,” so don’t be surprised if your neighbor paints her dining room a peachy orange.

Pinteresters, on the other hand, are opting for yellow. And, not just your standard sunny yellow, but “bold mustard yellow walls,” according to the platform’s “Pinterest 100-The Top Trends for 2019.

Searches for “mustard yellow” were up 45 percent.

Pinterest’s Top 2019 Home Decor Trends for Wallpaper and Murals

If you haven’t seen wallpaper lately, you’re going to be very surprised. I was when I saw the offerings coming out in the past year. Wall murals are not what they used to be either.

And designers are predicting the return of wallpaper in 2019. Today’s wallpaper, however, should be one with bold patterns and bright colors.

Consider geometric patterns for the kids’ rooms (searches on Pinterest for geometric décor are up a whopping 1,178 percent).

Once you’ve decided on wall covering, it’s time to turn your attention to what to hang on those walls. Naturally, Pinterest offers their 2019 obsession: textile art. Searches for the term have increased nearly 2,000 percent and you’ll find inspiration here.

Or, if you prefer green, you’ll find it has moved indoors and onto furniture and even appliances. I have a board dedicated completely to what I consider to be a very soothing color.

Pinterest’s Top 2019 Home Decor Trends for Floors

There’s no need to rip out the old vinyl flooring; just paint right over it. (I’m not sure how durable it is.) Keep the colors bold (the theme for 2019, apparently) and consider mosaic patterns.

The secret is in the stencil you choose and, thankfully, there are many. Check out what some of Pinterest’s DIYers are doing with stencils and paint on a dated floor.

Lindsey at High Heels and Training Wheels has an extensive instructional post that you definitely should read before you start this labor intensive project.

Succulents continue to trend

Succulents have been at the top of the must-have list for a couple of years now, but 2019 sees the trend moving more niche, to cacti. Searches for cactus arrangements have more than doubled at Pinterest and here’s a sample of what they find.

Pinterest’s Top 2019 Home Decor Trends for the great outdoors

Outdoor living spaces are popular with homebuyers and homeowners alike. The outdoor fireplace, as long as it’s “modern and sleek” is what they’ll be clamoring after in 2019, according to Pinterest.

This trend is, of course, useless to homeowners whose beloved garden is of the cottage or other less-modern style.

So, turn your attention instead to the vertical garden. Whether you intend to cover an entire wall or create a privacy screen, you’ll find gorgeous inspiration on Pinterest.
