2019 interior design trends: What’s going to be big
It’s time to set your sights on the new year! What decor styles will be in? Get inspired by our rundown of the five biggest trends.
Although it’s already been a theme for the past few seasons, a natural touch will still be on point in 2019. Wood, houseplants and raw materials are in style. Think of Sico’s colour of the year: Grand Manan Black, a shade of dark green straight out of a leafy forest.
2. Mismatched elements
Symmetry and harmony are so 2018. In the new year, decor will take a turn for the offbeat, with surprising colour combinations, mismatched chairs and unorthodox style choices. Blending old and new is a great way to incorporate this trend!
Brass finishes will be all the rage for kitchens and bathrooms in 2019. Plumbing and light fixtures, knobs and handles, and other decor elements in this material create a warm feel that’s modern and luxurious all at once. But watch out! A little brass goes a long way.
4. Dark cupboards
Although a classic immaculate white kitchen never goes out of style, darker tones are coming back for 2019 and beyond. Black, navy blue and charcoal grey are the new big colours for kitchens. Combined with wood finishes, these darker shades are extremely chic. Will you go for it?
Colourful, eclectic and culturally diverse accents will be everywhere in 2019. Bright colours, natural textures and geometric patterns are back in vogue, along with touches drawn from Indigenous cultures. Play with bright and colourful patterned textiles to liven things up!
