So, what future trends have we got to look forward to? Whether it's winter, spring, summer or autumn, we believe that these 2019 interior trends are set to be popular throughout the year.|
No.1 Mix & Match Interiors
Have you ever had the pleasure of stumbling into a quaint country tearoom and witnessed the quirky enchantment of a myriad of colours and patterns adorning mis-matched plates, saucers and crockery? This year’s first interior trend is a bit like that. Except that it applies to your furniture rather than your accessories.
Blend Old with New
This fun and eclectic trend welcomes a diversity of styles, tones and patterns. It incorporates all of your favourite existing furnishings in an interior style statement that is entirely created by you. Perhaps you can start with adding a unique occasional chair as a stylish accent to your living room sofa set. This is the time to go bold with colour and pattern so make your choice wisely. But if you’re in need of a little inspiration, check out last year’s daring statement sofa trend, detailing exactly how to pull off a bold seating choice.
Embrace something spectacular like Tetrad’s Stirling Chair, using a rich blend of hues and distinguishable pattern. Or a selection of mis-matched dining chairs for an interesting and exciting focal point. Even layering a multitude of vibrant colours over busy patterns amongst your soft furnishings is quick and simple way to achieve quirky mix and match style.
Inject Your Personality Into Your Interior
The beauty of this trend is that there are simply no restrictions. It can be created with maximum or minimal effort depending on your decor preferences. If you’re seeking an interior scheme that sings with your personality, mix and match pattern, tone and style with your existing furniture pieces for a unique update.
No.2 Modern Italian Furniture
Inspired by mid-century Italian design, but with a facelift more suitable for the modern demands of 2019. This trend is characterised by its rich emerald and ivy green tones, touches of deep blue and an occasional pinch of gold.
1920s Italy has served to inspire a host of interior styles. Yet with a fresh modern twist, this trend takes on a new inspiration worthy of today’s daily life. One of our Italian brands, ALF Italia, does this beautifully, creating the perfect blend of luxe yet practical. But if you’re looking for something more vivid, create the perfect balance of shades. Gold mirrors. A rich blue feature wall contrasted with comfortable green furnishings. Anything from emerald through to olive depending on how bold you dare to be.
Keep It Minimal
No matter how you decide to pursue the Modern Italian trend, ensure to keep it minimal. Avoid busy geometric patterns previously linked to Italian interiors. These are most certainly out this season. This trend seeks a subtler approach that offers the perfect blend of luxe meets modern with a classic European twist.
No.3 Curved Sofas
The third of our 2019 interior trends assures us that curves are most definitely back in this season. We’re talking gloriously arched back armchairs, softly curved pleated upholstery and rounded-turned-retro sofa sets.
Burnt Orange is Back
Speaking of retro, the curved sofas trends plays beautifully alongside last year’s 70s Maple trend. This style saw a celebration of the flowing shapes and rich orangey hues of the 70s era. The move to curved sofas sees a more muted finish than last years though, tying in the more natural elements of your home. Keep in mind the rich colours of the 70s – burnt orange, deep browns and soft creams – and pair these tones with a curved sofa to incorporate both decorating trends into one.
Statement rich coloured velvet sofas with curved backs, round upholstered footstools and vintage leather armchairs. Pieces like these offer the tones and texture that embody this trend. Match with neutral accessories such as satin light shades and cream cushions to create a fluidity in your home decor that fuses 70s lifestyle with modern day living.
This trend is all about embracing the natural elements of your home but in a more subtle and distinguished way. The soft arches and great curves of sofas and armchairs replicate the earthy and organic forms of nature, merging with modern day requirements to reflect a more sustainable and effortless lifestyle.
No.4 Hygge & Home Comforts
This interior trend encompasses everything cosy, comfortable and inviting about your home. All those elements that cause you to question why you’d ever want to leave the warmth and contentment of your house.
A Scandinavian Hygge Lifestyle
Similar to the Danish phenomenon of Hygge – a lifestyle that embraces an existence that is built on cosiness, serenity and well-being – this interior trend is quite simply all about creating your very own sanctuary inside your home in which there is no other place you’d rather be.
The beauty of this trend is that there is no need to overhaul your entire interior scheme; it’s all about the little things that make your house a home. If you’re not sure where to begin, start by adding cosy soft furnishings. Layering up an existing sofa or armchair is a great way to create a place you can envisage yourself curled up with a hot drink and a good book without a care to call your own. Add ambient lighting, some of your most favourite home accessories and an inviting rug. Before you know it, you’ll soon have a place inside your home where you can reflect on the simple things in life and take time to focus on your own happiness.
If you haven’t realised from that fuzzy feeling in your stomach already, this trend is great for these cold winter months, oozing warmth, cosiness and contentment throughout these dark winter nights.
