The New Year is here and it’s bringing a whole slew of cool new home decor trends with it. According to our friends at Etsy, the popular hues of yesteryear—think: millennial pink and ultraviolet—are on their way out, and burnt orange is about to be everywhere.

With trend casters betting on other earth-toned fads for the upcoming year, including Southwestern-style motifs and natural fabrics, it makes sense that the desert-inspired hue is about to have a big moment in the design world. In fact, decor elements in shades of burnt orange have been popping up in our home tours for a hot minute now—usually in small but impactful doses.

And let’s not forget the vibrant living room walls inside Jen Garcia and Andrew Carnwath’s Richmond, Virginia, home, which the pair painted three times before settling on the perfect shade of burnt orange (a.k.a. Benjamin Moore’s Pumpkin Patch).

So to kickstart your own 2019 design endeavors, here are a handful of stylish burnt orange decor items you can buy on the web today.
