The hottest home and Interior design trends for 2019
It’s that time of year where the shiny new trends for 2019 appear, so we’ve compiled our top 10 for you to peruse before you start looking at that home renovation or improvement project. Of course this is only a guide and trends can be used with more classic designs, we at https://www.chameleondesignsinteriors.co.ukare always happy to help and any project large or small.
Rich tones colour blocks, a touch of black and big flouncy florals are what’s to come this year. Below we show you how to create these exciting trends in your home this coming season.
This is a really lovely trend – who doesn’t love flower prints and on a large scale? Look out for big blousy designs that have a pre-Raphaelite style and you’ll find them on cushions, bedding and as murals. Keep the rest of the look simple, so the florals become the star and pick out key colours to accessorise with.
- Modern neutrals
This is a combination of different elements that creates a beautiful and simple look with the emphasis on natural-looking furniture. As Emile Azan, head of design at Chameleon Interior Designs, explains: ‘Here there’s been a focus on stripped timbers, wood grain and a return to simple, natural patinas and materials within furniture.’ Team this with gently patterned crockery, soft grey chairs and a neutral block coloured textured rug to complete this calming trend.
Although we had gold as a trend back in spring/summer, it’s still very much here and you’re going to see even more of it this season! So how about using it in a different form instead of as an accessory? Yes, that’s right – GOLD carpet, and isn’t it fabulous, especially with this Mid-Century modern furniture?
Fans of monochrome will adore this trend. It’s all about the accessories – and they need to be black. But if you’re not a massive fan of large amounts of black you can make this trend work by using small blocks here and there. Combine this look with tactile pieces and white to balance it out.
- All the Pinks
Dusty, old-fashioned pinks are all the rage for winter and into 2019, which is a perfect antidote to the usual rusty tones, we see, and as it’s such an easy-on-the-eye colour it’s simple to apply to our homes. We asked Karen Thomas, head of design at Home at Marks & Spencer to explain this trend: ‘Adding warmth and colour to your home, these tones will work especially well alongside metallic, contemporary greys and the new wave of darker neutrals. If you’re feeling bold, go for statement upholstery in vibrant pink velvet or for a more understated look try painterly florals and layer textures and fabrics to add interest.’
Kitchens are undergoing a change, no longer are they simply all about one style of units, a worktop and a complementary splash back. This new and exciting trend is all about mixing it up – different textures sat next to each other, contrasting in both colour and touch. ‘A sleek quartz work surface with an integrated solid wood chopping board or dark cabinetry against a clean marbled splash back, makes for an eye-catching space, and one that is full of character,’ says Emile Azan, designer at https://www.chameleondesignsinteriors.co.uk
- Bright Shapes
Playful and full of colour, this trend is certainly a happy one. Look out for bold shades in different shapes – stripes, geometrical, spots and blocks and you can’t go wrong. Pop it all together and you’ll have this trend spot on. ‘Its design DNA lies in its mix and match of graphic geos, bold colours and clean lines. Running through it all is a confidence to clash not match. The only rule? Make it modern.’
8.Scandi goes Vintage
Think Scandi combined with nostalgic designs. For instance the supermarkets have caught on to this trend with a range that evokes 1950’s nostalgia with a modern Scandinavian edge, and embodies the excitement and post-war boom of the era. Updated with a yellow and deep aqua blue colour palette, this collection is a must-have to bring a vibrant pop of colour to a dining table, designed to be mixed and matched for informal, vintage style.’ Team it with pale blond wood furniture so the design sings out and keep the styling simple.
Navy is the BIG colour for these coming seasons, gentle on the eye yet moody enough to be perfect for the winter months – you’re going to see it everywhere. It can be teamed with gold and this wallpaper is inspired by sashiko, a form of functional embroidery from Japan that uses geometric stitching to mend areas of worn clothes. Keep accessories simple and let this dazzling wallpaper be the focal point of your room.
- Artisan Folk
With all of us spending more and more time on social media, there’s a move towards more conscious and folk-inspired handcrafted homewares. Having pieces that feel great will be key; tufted rugs, decorative quilts and rattan lampshades, will all be popular. There’s a need for textures that create interest visually whilst retaining a cosy feel to help us through those darker months and into 2019.
As always these trends can be incorporated with others to give a fresh but long lasting design and functionality to a space. https://www.chameleondesignsinteriors.co.uk
