Spring has sprung, and along with it comes a sense of rejuvenation. It’s a time where we turn our attention to new beginnings and a fresh start. If you’re looking for a new, fresh look in your home look no further. We run down the vital trends for 2019 to give your home a vibrant new look.
Whether on fabric or wallpaper, floral patterns will be big news this year. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of chintz, abstract patterns of huge blooms, they’ll all be at your disposal on the high street. So get stuck in, and bring a touch of the outside into your home.
Graphic shapes and bright colours
Also known as Memphis design, geometric and graphic patterns and bright, primary colours are back in vogue, with 80’s style interiors coming to the forefront of design. That doesn’t mean a complete sayonara to mid-century if it’s your style of choice. The key is to create a cohesive space which includes elements of both eras for an uplifted look. Curves are in this season, seen in plump sofas and curved back chairs. The ultimate in Kaganesque design – http://www.vladimirkagan.com/.
Mixed metal accents
Copper and brass have been and gone, but the metal trend is still surging into the new year. This time with sophisticated rich bronzes, pewter and iron shades with mix and match elements. Be careful not to go overboard. Aim for small metal items like the metal log holder found at https://www.themetaltree.co.uk/ for subtle accent pieces.
Light wood floors
Pale wooden flooring is a great way of introducing light into a room’s design and is striking when teamed with glass or acrylic furniture for added reflective qualities. There are many tones to choose from including bleached white oak and warm maple shades. Wood is also a material that is hard-wearing enough to withstand many years of transitioning decor changes, so should keep strong for decades if looked after properly.
This year is all about sustainability and taking a less is more approach to your home. Gone are the busy, eclectic interiors of 2018, replaced with spaces that are carefully considered and with purpose. Items are made of timeless elements such as wood, jute, stone and cotton to create a solid structure which you can build upon and add vibrant tones for interest.
