Next year, it’s all about bringing both fun and luxury to your home
Out with the old and in with the new. With 2019 fast approaching, we’re looking ahead to some of the biggest interior trends set to make a splash in the new year. Take a look, and get inspired to give your home a fresh fun look.
In 2019, interior design is going intergalactic, taking inspiration from stars, planets and the night sky. From zodiac patterned wallpapers to galaxy murals and even star-covered crockery, the results are truly heavenly. This is the perfect way to bring a bit of whimsy into your home for the new year.
For years we’ve been told that you have to keep your kitchen light and neutral, but the fact that searches for black and navy kitchens are up 93% in the last six months shows that we’re ready for a change. Incorporating deep blues and rich blacks into your kitchen design can add a real sense of depth, bringing Scandi-inspired glamour to the heart of your home.
Swapping out tired sinks and taps with eye-catching brass alternatives is set to elevate interior settings in 2019. Think of your taps as the equivalent of jewellery for your home, brining a sense of warmth and decadence to kitchens and bathrooms. Depending on the setting, you can also use brass for a cool industrial edge.
No, you haven’t stepped back in time to the 1970s. Fringing is back as a fun and flirty design movement with great results. Tassels make for the perfect home embellishment, impressively walking the line between casual cosiness and outright luxury. From cushions and curtains to lampshades and even mirrors, fringing adds a swishing sense of movement to any environment.
The Blue Planet effect is a big trend for 2019, and we can certainly “sea” why! From scalloped chair backs to fish scale tiles, people across the country are falling for nautical furniture hook, line and sinker. Like fringe, brass and starry accessories, this oceanic trend is all about introducing fun as well as glamour into your home.
Smooth, seductive and irresistibly glamourous, they’ll be no shortage of decadence in 2019 thanks to the resurgence of velvet in interior design. In fact, searches for velvet interiors have increased by 400% in the last 6 months, so be sure to shop around for velvet bed, sofas or accessories for your home.
Many of the trends on our list are fresh on the interior scene, but mid-century modern has been popular since, well, the mid-century. It simply shows no signs of going anywhere. Sleek lines, slim legs, strong silhouettes and function over frills are all typical of this timeless design movement, so don’t shy away from 1950s chic in 2019.
Like mid-century designs, concrete bathrooms bring fashion and function together. Not only is concrete utilitarian, sturdy and long-lasting, it’s also versatile thanks to new print and staining techniques. The only limit is your imagination.
If there’s one shade to look out for in 2019, it’s this one. Spiced Honey has been named Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2019, bringing an all-encompassing warmth to your home. This cosy autumnal shade brings full, foody glamour reminiscent of salted caramel and sandy cashmere knits. It’s a great alternative to more classic neutral tones.
