This blog post is a compilation of fresh trends our blog team is noticing across Gypsy Spoonful and the handmade industry as a whole: what makers are creating, what shoppers are loving, and what’s hot right now in the wider market. These trend predictions for 2018 are based, in part, on past top searches across categories on GypsySpoonful.com
What is STILL going strong, carried over from 2018?
In 2018 we continued to see a moderate uptick in the popularity of Unicorns and Mermaids as well as Donuts and Foxes. It was a year filled with magical motifs, pastels, and all things Beachy. Gypsy Spoonful shoppers took to these trends and seem to still be holding onto most of them. Cacti and Succulents made a big impact and that does not seem to be deminishing
As we march on into 2019, some have predicted that the trends will move away from idealist distractions, and shift towards reality. This year we’re actively embracing our own, individual realities, whatever they happen to be – from living life to the max, or celebrating a lazy, day on the couch. Shoppers are about to “get real” – so we are officially declaring 2019 the year of Being Real, which includes using all-natural products, focusing on sustainability, and being realistic when it comes to decorating and living.
The world isn’t perfect (and you don’t have to pretend that is), but you can also do something about it. – See Craftivism
Pantone’s color of the year: Living Coral
While millennial pink and ultraviolet are still having their respective moments, We’re excited to see this cheerful tone take over our homes, outfits and accessories. This floral-inspired hue is whistful (yet grounding) and unapologetically natural – exactly what we need in 2019.
Living Coral accented items on Gypsy Spoonful are plentiful and you can expect to see a great deal more in 2019. It’s so visually appealing, dontcha think? See all items tagged “Coral”here.

Chaos and Mayhem…
haha, not really.. but whatever the polar opposite of minimalism is… Yes, kids this is the moment you’ve secretly been waiting for! It’s an all-out rebellion against the often unrealistic quest for order and perfection in our homes and lives. What was once considered clutter is now on-trend – clashing patterns, styles, prints and colors are all permissible, as there’s no limit to this eclectic trend. We predict, in 2019 you will begin to see mashups of prints and patterns coming from the small shops of Gypsy Spoonful. Embrace it, it is futile to resist!
