Dominique Coffman wanted to be an interior designer from a very young age. Her interests in art, history, architecture and psychology combined to become her passion for interior design. Upon graduating from Florida State University’s Interior Design Program, Dominique began working at Design West and now is the Vice President of Design.

What does Dominique love most about interior design? “I love the challenge of figuring out what your client is dreaming of and combining it with the functional aspects they don’t always think about,” says Dominique. “Every project has a new twist.”

As 2018 begins, homeowners are looking for fresh ways to update design elements in their home. Dominique is sharing her top three design trends to look for this year and how to incorporate them into your home.

  1. Soft Edges in Furnishings

This year we are saying goodbye to hard, boxy edges on furniture and welcoming in soft, rounded lines. With curved edges, you can bring softness to the space and pay homage to its retro-inspired roots. Modern, sophisticated and elegant, these classic pieces will remain timeless.

  1. Wallpaper Murals

There is a new generation of wallcoverings making its way into 2018: the wallpaper mural. By incorporating this artsy trend into your home, you create a focal point and statement piece. Opt for an organic-style wallcovering for a handmade, natural look or a unique textured wallcovering for a bold declaration. Wallpaper murals come in many different styles, textures and designs- the possibilities are endless!

  1. Metallic Finishes

There are so many ways to add a little sparkle into your home this year, and one of them is metallic finishes. Options range from fabrics to wall-coverings, to backsplashes and even paint! There are a range of options to choose from- whether you want subtle (like the textured wall in the below bedroom) or sparkle, metallic finishes bring variety and versatility to a design.  Added bonus: metallic finishes create another layer of reflectivity, giving the illusion of a larger space.
