Eight Hot Home Trends for 2018 Unveiled

by Allyson Hoffman

If you are like many people who want their homes to remain current and updated but aren’t always certain of what to choose, here are eight hot home trends expected to pop up more frequently in 2018. So when you are ready, consider taking advantage of these ideas and accents to update your home.

1. Dare to be bold with Pantone’s 2018 color of the year, ultra violet, a rich, dark purple. If this deep hue is simply too much for you, lavender is also expected to show up everywhere so try adding some lavender to a room for a fresh pop of color.

2. High contrast color palettes make a huge impact, even without selecting trendy colors. As a low-cost project requiring only the expense of paint if you do the work, combine a deep grey or blue mixed with white for a great update assuring that the dark hue isn’t overwhelming.

3. Geometric shapes will remain popular, but expect to see more circles replacing tired triangles. Circles will appear in throw pillows, draperies, linens and even light fixtures.

4. Despite stainless steel enduring as a lasting classic, brass has again creeped back into current decor. If you are looking for a quick and easy change, just add a small amount of brass to your bathrooms, kitchen or as lighting accents.

5. Consider incorporating natural elements into your home’s design as a way to connect with your surroundings using stones and woods that are native to certain areas and create beautiful accents – from limestone showers to walnut cabinets.

6. Consider incorporating some trim in colors other than white. While using bold colors for this style change will remain uncommon, expect of see charcoal or other neutrals appearing on trim to make a room stand out in a new way.

7. In recent seasons velvet has appeared in closets. Expect that to transition to home goods as well. As with many trends, a little can go a long way so if you aren’t ready for a velvet couch, pillows or an ottoman will do the trick equally well.

8. Lastly, “statement” lampshades will show up this year. It’s an easy update to consider without a big commitment. New patterns, materials, colors and shapes will replace the oh-so-common white classics.

With almost any trend, a little goes a long way. So be careful to not overdo the updates or combine too many trends in one room. Your home should always reflect your personality and interests as well as providing a comfortable retreat for you and your family.

Cubs and Cowboys

by Allyson Hoffman

The Chicago Cubs bring you their annual convention taking place this Friday, January 12th through Sunday, January 14th at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. This is your chance to meet some of your favorite Cubs players past and present as well as grab a few autographs along the way. This event will feature interactive exhibits, meet and greet opportunities, and special panels.  Visit the Cubs Website for passes and hotel packages. A portion of the proceeds of the Cubs Convention benefits Cubs Charities.

Alternately, join the Professional Bull Riders in celebrating their 25th year and watch some of the top bull riders in the world take the arena. The event begins Saturday, January 13th at 6:45 PM and Sunday, January 14th at 1:45 PM. This will be the 8th time the “Toughest Sport on Dirt” returns to Allstate Arena in Rosemont for two days of action-packed rides. Visit the Allstate Arena’s website to purchase your tickets today!

Whether you choose Cubs, Cowboys or both, be prepared for a roaring good time!
