This upcoming year promises to be fun for design! Too much is going on and all at the same time, and if you are lucky, you might able to take all that is out there in terms of design, and put together a really nice pad. From colours to fabric, this year’s design journey is going to take us to some places we have been to before while showing us new things.
Think graphics that pull you into nature, green lighting, and smooth velvets that caress your skin, and the trip will be worth the travel. With your house serving as a blank palette and your creativity, you can give your modest home a style pop. Top design trends for 2019 include a variety of interesting and exciting ideas to make your home both cosy for you and inviting to your guests.
Let’s take a closer look at the most up-to-date interior design trends for the upcoming year.
This year’s window dressings can go in a number of directions. For one, drapes are being hung higher than normal, which adds height to any room. Just remember with curtains, if you are going with patterned drapes, then you want to go with solid fabrics for your furniture, and vice versa so as to avoid clashing in the case of too many patterns and the blandness that goes along with pairing too many solids together. If you are keeping it simple, shutters can also give the space simplicity. Installing plantation shutters in Sydney can not only give your home a stylish window covering but also add style to your space.
One of the coolest homewares trends of this year is patterned wallpaper. These patterns almost always depict scenes from nature, and they can actually make your room more subdued. Darker wallpapers can be contrasted with lighter accessories to give your space a fresher look, especially in the bedroom where personalised style can add character to space.
Another popular trend you will see this next year is related to furnishings that are eco-friendly. LED lighting is especially a favourite of home designers this year with many playing with linear lamp designs that bring balance to a room. Then, there are the actual furniture pieces that are designed with sustainability in mind. These pieces are made from recycled pieces and environmentally friendly materials. In this incarnation, sustainability will discard its bohemian look and adopt a more sophisticated, sleek style.
Another trend is to move beyond mass-produced furnishings into looking for unique pieces. We can finally get back into looking in antique and vinstage furniture stores for great steals! The best part of unique pieces is they give your space character and can really give a room pizzazz and style.
Pastels And Gold
Colours this year are going to primarily be gold and pastels. Gold is definitely a trend in the next year, but designers have turned pastels on their head and come up with a darker version of the classical spectrum of pastel colours. These colours bring an earthier tone to spaces, which translates into classic style mixed with earthy sophistication.
A season would not be a season with soft velvets showing up in some form in a living space. Blues, plum-purples, and dark reds are just some of the few hues that are making their mark on velvets this season. Plus, velvet’s versatility is that it can be used to create either classy sophisticated style or bohemian cool.
