Interior Design Trends 2019
Muted tones, deep teals and olive greens are downright delicious colourways that remind us of sumptuous foods and Christmas moods. These are just some of the design trends on the cards for us in 2019. Think decadent delight, melting chocolate and raspberry ripples.
Above all 2019 is the year of mixing. Boho design with its melting pot of styles, colours and patterns is now back, but with a modern twist and chicer than before. We are no longer adhering to just one design style, for example mid-century modern, French country or classic beach house. Instead, cleverly curating, fusing and drawing from a range of design styles we can create a more layered and interesting outcome. Mixed metals stay on trend whilst the overuse of just one metal like rose gold or copper in a room are out. The imaginative intermingling of wood types and colours such as oak, kiaat, ash and walnut in a space adds warmth and depth.
In a kitchen catch up, this year sees much more prominent and patterned splashbacks. Rather than being a mere afterthought in most kitchens, the much-ignored splashback takes its place as a central design feature. Wellness kitchens are also big news, now with a focus on sustainable and recycled materials, layouts that foster social interactions and an abundance of living produce that is actually grown in the kitchen on a small scale. Warmer and mid-tone wood make a warmer visual impact whilst smooth matt finishes are soft on the eyes.
This year fabrics are also forgiving of imperfections. Wrinkled textures are firmly on trend celebrating tactile surfaces through a range of crinkled, creased and slumped looks, evoking the organic patterns and textures we experience in nature.
2019 is going to bring us a fashion feast of style! Definitely the most exhilarating year of the decade.
