Inspiring interior design trends to transform your new home

09 Jan 19

We know that peoples’ preferences vary and when moving into a new home, you may well decide to update the décor to suit your taste, whether it be redecorating the walls or buying new furniture or accessories.  With a new year and new design trends beginning to filter through, 2019 looks set to be colourful, stylish and timeless.

To help you create your perfect home and choose the right pieces of furniture, cabinetry and colour, we have explored the trends coming from top designers and industry specialists for the year ahead. From geometric patterns, a fresh take on timeless classics, handcrafted design-led pieces to a warming and peaceful blush colour palette, these are some of the top looks to keep on your radar.

1. Oxidised oak

Oxidised Oak is a new look for 2019 and we will be sure to see more furniture and cabinetry that is a darker version of our tried and true white oak.

It will bring a new twist to comfort and living with a natural vibe.

2. Luxurious headboards

Dream big and sweet nestled beneath sumptuous fabrics.

Upholstering headboards with luxurious materials adds a touch of sophistication and in the sanctuary of any bedroom.

3. Go bold

Turn up the volume in any room of your home by using high-contrast patterns, overscale pieces and mixing up materials.

Be bold and daring with your interior choices for 2019.

4. Multi-functional furniture

Innovation in the home is big right now and home owners are increasingly looking for ways to simplify their interior.

The use of clever multifunctional furniture in smaller spaces is particularly popular and certainly a trend that is here to stay!

5. Handcrafted authenticity

This year we will see a shift from buying mass produced furniture and return to handcrafted special one-offs and authentic pieces.

6. Blush tones

Blush is the new neutral.

Pairing seamlessly with greys and naturals for a calming palette or it can be combined with bold colours like navy, forest green or burnt orange.

7. Cosy beds

Going to bed will feel like a warm hug with the use of soft cushions, luxurious throws and new bed linen.

The New Year is a good time to update pillows and duvets and recreate a haven of comfort and nurture in your bedroom.

8. Gorgeously geometric

Perfectly imperfect geometric patterns are making an impact within an interior movement from tribal repeats into loose, over scaled and asymmetrical shapes.

9. Natural minerals

Add a little indulgence to the bathroom or kitchen with natural minerals.  The visual texture they add to our interiors is exciting and creative.

Natural stone, quartzite, and even terrazzo can add luxury and practicality.

10. Curvy designs

Time to bring back curves and embrace them like never before.

1970’s inspired rounded seating is a chic way to bring this sweeping trend into your home.

11. Innovative use of metal

Metals will be used in more interesting ways and will be more popular than ever, but no more rose gold.

Whether it is gold, brass or blackened metals, these will be used and designed in a more sculpture-based unique manner.

Functional art is something we are seeing more and more.

12. The devil is in the detail

Small details in upholstery have a big impact on design.

Create individuality and a unique sense of style using visible seams, contrast piping or colourful stitching to studs.

13. Natural stone with modern design

Mixing marble with Scandi stools is a combination that feels refined yet casual and cool.

The pairing of the two individual interior themes is fresh way to create natural stone with modern lines.

14. Antiques

Antiques are an exciting nod to the design future.

Rooms with soul and personality are making a real comeback filled with pieces of furniture that have their own story to tell.

15. Redefined industrial

The twist to update this much-loved interiors style is making it softer.

The lines are smoother and the finishes more defined.

This season industrial goes more ‘country’ than concrete jungle.
