Let Pinterest's Top Trends Inspire Your 2018 Resolutions
Pinterest just released its top trends of 2017, and whether you're looking to get fit or redecorate your bathroom, you'll find just the pinspiration you need within this list. The future is looking fun.
Hell, after reading this list, tackling any New Year's resolution won't seem so daunting. Who's ready for 2018?
1. Diet-friendly frying
"Diet-friendly frying" was actually one of the top searches in 2017. With the popularity of air fryers exploding around the world, it's now easier than ever to get that satisfying crunch in your foods.
Forget juicing; souping is the new trend. Puréed veggies give you all the nutrients and fiber you need, and does it get any cozier than a soup?
3. Healthy coffee
Adding healthy powders like maca or protein powder is the new, delicious way to get added benefits in the morning.
4. Moroccan flavors
Moroccan spices like cumin, coriander and cardamom are the trendiest ways to spice up your meals.
5. Plant proteins
Meat has a new competitor: veggie substitutions. There's been a lot of talk about how these proteins are not only better for the world, but also better for your belly.
6. Sugar snap peas
Sugar snap peas are replacing chips and crackers as a great snacking substitution. You can cook them in an air fryer for crispy delights or eat them raw with hummus.
7. Korean condiments
Sriracha is old news; now it's all about gochujang, a Korean red chili paste that is savory, sweet and fermented to give it its distinct flavor.
Ghee and clarified butter are lactose-free but deliciously rich in flavor, opening up a whole new world to those who avoid dairy.
9. Vegan desserts
Desserts don't require animal products to be delicious. All it takes are a few swaps — like coconut oil instead of butter and flax seed instead of eggs — and suddenly, a whole new world of desserts awaits.
10. Virgin cocktails
You don't need alcohol to have a good time; the new rise of zero-proof cocktails (the artist formerly known as "mocktails") is proving people are seeking flavorful alternatives to booze.
1. Spa bathrooms
Doesn't this idea sound absolutely luxurious? Adding spa touches to your home is a trendy way to up the relaxation factor.
2. Mixed metals
Go metallic with silvers and golds and copper all in one room. Mixing all the different finishes is finally trendy; shine on.
The eclectic floor trend gives rooms a pop of color.
4. Statement ceilings
The forgotten sixth wall is now getting its due. Bold paint, striking wallpaper and intricate textures are all going up high these days.
5. Bone inlay
This technique adds drama and depth to pieces in your house.
6. Herringbone pattern
The geometric flooring design gives homes a modern look.
7. Colorful doors
Like ceilings, doors are also getting their time to shine with unique colors and patterns.
8. Patterned plants
The prayer plant and other patterned foliage are brightening up houses and adding eye-catching colors.
9. Big wall art
Statement pieces turn drab into fab with sprawling images and colors that can help define a space.
The gray-green color is where it's at for a cozy, neutral space.
