The Year of the Jewel: Home Décor Colors for 2018, Featuring Mohawk's Boardwalk Collective

As 2017 fades into memory, it’s time once again to take a look at the home décor color trends for the New Year. And judging by Pantone’s 2018 home décor palettes, we’re calling this the Year of the Jewel.

This year’s most in-demand colors will swing back to striking jewel tones and a stark white. It’s quite a departure from the more muted, earth-inspired colors of 2017, so if you’re wondering how to make 2018’s bold colors work in your home, we suggest starting with the floors.

Anchor the Room with the Mohawk® Boardwalk Collective™
The key to adding exciting new colors like Pantone’s Pink Peacock or Tillandsia Purple to your home is to use these jewel tones sparingly and anchor the room with something more neutral--like a timeless tan or even charcoal. And the best way to do that is with the flooring.

Here at SMART Carpet and Flooring, we love the muted neutral tones of Mohawk’s Boardwalk Collective laminate flooring to complement the strong colors of 2018’s home décor trends. Boardwalk Collective’s soft and traditional yet sophisticated appearance is the perfect complement to the bright pinks, purples, blues, and teals of 2018’s palette.

With six colors to choose from, Mohawk’s Boardwalk Collective laminate offers a variety of looks for your home. If you gravitate toward lighter neutrals, you’ll want to consider warm Gulf Sand or cool Silver Shadow; Boathouse Brown, Beachwood and Graphite will provide your updated jewel-tone décor with a strong, dark anchor.

Of course, even in home décor, it’s never all about the looks. Fortunately, Boardwalk Collective laminate flooring’s beauty is more than skin deep (even though you’ll love its hand-scraped appearance). Installation is safe and fast, thanks to Mohawk’s patented Uniclic® technology that allows Boardwalk Collective flooring to be installed with no glue, no fumes, and no drying time--just a moisture-resistant locking system that will have your new floors ready to enjoy the day of installation.
