Some have made a strong return in magazines and model homes. Here are the 5 best retro trends making a comeback for 2019.

Gold Tones – Brass has made a comeback. Bright, shiny gold tones in fixtures and light sconces adding a touch of luxury to the space.

Patterns – Patterns of all types are becoming more popular. Simple shapes and bold, geometric patterns are gracing tile floors, backsplashes and entire walls.
