Want to be ahead of the curve in the new year? Well, why not take a look at some of the latest trends in home décor that are expected to continue in 2019? While the current year has yet to end, we think it a good idea to stay on top of things before they become… well, a thing.
After analysing all the catalogues and all the sites dedicated to it, here are our top five home décor trends to watch out for in 2019.
1) Materials and Finishes
Every year, we see really innovative and wonderful uses of material and finishes which make a home truly unique. Take feather glass, for example. Designers like Patricia Urquiola make excellent use of the irregular patterns to create truly unique and eye-catching designs that give homes that extra artistic flair and touch.
The mention of father glass is particularly poignant as it shows different perspectives and uses throughout your home, making it you look at it from another point of view.
2) A Coppery Shade of Green
The Colour of the Year is going to continue being present in 2019 and that colour is… Coined Nightwatch green! This moody alternative to matte black will bring a bit more of an atmosphere to your home in the coming year and also highlight the coolness of your décor.
It’s a great hue and goes excellently with marble surfaces and gold or brass fittings. Definitely get your hands on it if you can.
3) Compact/Multifunctional Furnishings
With more and more people gravitating towards city dwelling, it’s become more practical to have multifunctioning and compact furniture. The entire nature of these furnishings is to save as much space as possible.
With petite armchairs and multipurpose shelves, this trend is perfect for anyone who moves around a lot and who has a particularly adaptive personality.
4) Statement Ceilings
If you’ve ever thought about how your floor tiles should look, then you would know how exciting it could be to find one that’s just right for your home. Now, imagine that but for your ceiling! Make a statement by getting a ceiling pattern that mesmerizes.
From expressively painted to lacquered, from wallpaper to mould-covering, find extra dimensions in your home by putting up something for people to look at. Some of the patterns may feel trippy at first but it’s sure to make a splash by the time 2019 comes along.
With climate change becoming an ever increasing issue, it’s important we do our bit. One such trend we expect to take off in 2019 then is for more eco-friendly features such as a walled garden to become more and more popular.
Recycled materials may also make a return as well as repurposed furniture. Sure, turning an old Victorian bath into a new armchair might seem a bit hipster-y but it’s a chic and clever way to create furniture cheaply and save the planet while you’re at it.
