Happy new year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year, and that you’re all ready to tackle the year ahead. If switching up your house is on your to-do list, then you’ve come to the right place. January collections are being released, and new pattern books are making their way into our showroom, and our January sale is now on. So, we’ve compiled a short list of just some of the interior trends that we predict to be huge in 2019.
One recent trend was rose gold, but that is now taking a step back for more metallic touches. Metal accents add a touch of glamour to a room, creating a more luxurious feel. Brass, gold, nickel, and copper are set to be the big ones, as they add warm and subtle touches that aren’t too out there. Many are opting to mix the metals together, like silver and brass or copper and gold, all of which really make a statement.
A trend that just isn’t going anywhere. A contemporary twist to any home, geometric shapes tie in with the minimalist style due to its aesthetic symmetry and simplicity. The only difference for this year is that these patterns are turning dramatic. Trailing on from the oversized floral trend of last year, geometric designs will feature bolder colours and larger prints, making them the focus of an interior. Romo’s rug collection is a good example of this, and a perfect starting point if you’re a little hesitant to incorporate huge geometric designs.
Green is expected to be one of the most popular colours this year, and it’s not hard to see why. With people now wanting to create bold designs for their homes, as opposed to the light, fresh schemes of last year, while still keeping a timeless and sophisticated look. Moodier hues are what people are after, as it makes a great alternative to matte black, as it’s not as harsh. Green accents in a room can add a luxurious touch, such as green cushions, throws, and rugs. Feature walls incorporating these green tones are popular as well, we recommend Cole and Son’s Botanical Botanica collection if this is the look you’re after.
Almost every other headline we have seen this year has been about creating a more eco-friendly way of living, and this is transferable to your home too. This trend incorporates more natural materials such as wood, stone, and wool. This is an easy way to add some texture to your home and helps you create an organic and relaxed environment. Bringing the outside in is still a popular trend from last year, and this can be easily combined with the sustainable trend. ‘Cactus arrangements’ was one of the most popular interior design searches towards the end of last year, suggesting that the millennial trend of greenery is on the rise for the new year.
Following on from sustainability, vintage furniture is making a comeback. People are looking for alternative ways to decorate their home and are trying to redecorate without creating too much waste. Many old designs are making a return this year, and people are combining them with contemporary prints to create a unique look. Warm hues are one of the popular choices, which ties in nicely with this season’s darker tones.
