Cool Interior Trends 2019

Published: 2019-01-09 | Categories: Latest News

Start the new year bang on trend by shaking up your living space for the next 12 months. This coming year is all about making your space cool, contemporary and liveable, while embracing what’s new. We take a look at the top five interior trends for 2019, and how you can achieve them with just a few key pieces.

The jewel in the crown - Think sapphire blue, magenta pink and emerald green for this colourful trend. Achieve this look in the dining room with paintwork in a complementary colour like navy blue or dark grey, and offset with coloured dining chairs, a classic dining table and even an accent chair to complete the quirky but cosy look.

Pastels are the new neutrals - If you’re not a fan of big, bold colour, fear not… there’s also a place for pretty pastel shades of buttermilk, soft apricot, rose pink and lilac in your décor as they replace the cool greys and whites of the past couple of years. The pastel look will work well when incorporated in children’s bedroom furniture, and provides a perfect backdrop for bright accessories such as retro prints and colourful rugs.

Velvet rules - Velvet will continue to lend a sumptuous but contemporary feel to interiors in 2019. Make your living room an inviting, luxurious space with coloured velvet sofas and occasional chairs. Add some tall house plants for an almost tropical feel, and up the comfort factor by adding rugs in bright, bold colours and throws in soft fabrics.

Embrace those curves - Anything circular or curvy is going to be a winner in 2019. Curved sofas, footstools, or a round dining table will channel this fresh, feminine look with a nod to the 1970s. This look is an antidote to the sharp, angular lines we’ve grown used to, and will bring a free-flowing vibe to any room.

The green factor - It’s all about bringing the outdoors in, and enjoying your garden to the max in 2019. While house plants such as succulents were big in 2018, go bolder with larger plants such as ferns and peace lilies this year. Make your outdoor space inviting with rattan garden furniture teamed with bold upholstery and even outdoor rugs in striking patterns.
