Top designers predict artisan light fixtures will be huge in 2018.

Some top designers are weighing in on what they think will be the trends in 2018. Here’s a quick list of what to watch for, explore, and maybe try in your own home:

  • Light purples, lavender, and other soft tones
  • Higher contrast rooms, with neutrals mixed with brighter colors
  • More circle patterns in accents like pillows, art, and wallpaper
  • Shades on the same color on both walls and furniture
  • Less brushed silver and more copper or brass fixtures
  • Richer color schemes, using more metals, gem tones, velvets, and sheek blacks
  • Olive and chartreuse greens
  • Localize wood, stone and other natural pieces
  • Woven accessories
  • Textured and layered wallpaper
  • Trim in braver colors
  • Broad variations of subway tiles
  • Warmer colors
  • Velvet couches, pillows, chairs or seat cushions
  • Bolder patterns worked into the design
  • Local artistry – especially in light fixtures

What trends are you ready to try? We’d love to help you find the house of your dreams – move-in ready or a blank canvas for your creativity. Contact an agent today to find the perfect house in the Louisville area.

Airbnb continues to grow in popularity for Louisville’s home hosts.

Airbnb, an online platform for renting houses or rooms short-term, continues to grow in popularity, and this is great news for homeowners who host in Louisville. In 2017, more than 78,000 guests came to Louisville – which was greater than other Kentucky cities. Total, these rentals brought $10 million in 2017, compared to about $6 million in 2016.

To include your home or rental property in 2018 on Airbnb or other vacation rental sites, you can get a permit through the city.

But vacation rentals aren’t for everyone. Certain sub-cities within Louisville have internal regulations against using property as a vacation rental. If your property is in Anchorage, Douglass Hills, Graymoor-Devondale, Hurstbourne, Indian Hills, Jeffersontown, Lyndon, Middletown, Prospect, Shively, St. Matthews and St. Regis Park, you cannot list your house.
