As we say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018, the design and fashion experts are weighing in with their predictions for the next year.

In this article we look at the top trends according to Pinterest.

Each year Pinterest posts the “Pinterest 100”. This is based on trends in their users’ posts. They cover fashion, food, travel and of course, home trends.

In our own renovation and custom build work we have seen some of these trends hit the GTA… resort-style bathrooms in Aurora, terazzo in Newmarket, terazzo in Barrie. The people of York Region are ahead of the curve!

And now the top 10 trends in Home style as per Pinterest!
