As we say farewell to 2018, it’s time to think about how we want our homes to look in the new year – and 2019 is set to deliver inspired interior design ideas.
If you’re planning on adding some of the hottest new home interiors trends and want to introduce some fresh looks around the home, here’s a round-up of some of the new styles to try for yourself.
Scandi interiors will still be everywhere in ’19. If you want to bring some hygge to your home, balancing out the classic whites and neutrals with natural elements. Wood and wicker are key materials to go for here, and you can soften the effect with dark coloured woollen throws and thick rugs. To create the ultimate Nordic effect, light your fire and dot candles around the room.
If the cool Scandi-style isn’t your thing, you might be pleased to know that boho is making a comeback. Bold patterns and bright colours are everywhere from furniture and walls to window dressings like these by Direct Blinds. Add layeredaccessories and fanciful pieces to replace the quieter tones that have dominated colour palettes up to now and stamp your own vibrant taste on your home.
Bold colours will be big in the new year. Go for a midnight blue or a dark navy to add a deep, warming colour to the space. This might be dramatic but keep everything else neutral in the room to allows the walls to make an impact. You have to commit, though. Feature walls are out and now is the time to go for the more boisterous colours.
Luxurious fabrics are also big. From seating made of the smoothest crushed velvets to accessories in regal metallics, such as copper and deep yellow gold, you can indulge in some luxe styling. These materials and colours work beautifully with another key trend for next year: dark wood furniture. Think the ’80s oak sideboard that your aunty had and you’re on the right track.
For an added extra bit of fun, choose tassels. Next year, these fun additions will be on everything from pouffes and curtains to lampshades and sofas. Embrace their renaissance by choosing colours and styles that suit your taste. Perhaps you want a braided style to include in your boho lounge or you want to enhance your Nordic styling. These are just the thing for the job.
