Much like new years resolutions, we like to take a look back on the décor trends of 2018 to see how the landscape evolved. Not only are we passionate about how these trends made a mark on interiors then, but how this impacts where the future of décor is heading. Follow along as we go through some key home design trends to jump on this new year to make sure your new home feels fresh!
The world of interiors has been dominated by minimalist Scandinavian design for the past few years, leaving modern spaces open and clean. However, all signs are pointing toward a return to more maximalist tendencies with a fresh, modern twist. Of course, don't read this and think we're going back to more traditional or classic styles! Instead, think more along the lines of thoughtful purchases of long-lasting pieces, ranging from different periods and styles, in order to create interiors that are intrinsically unique.
With minimal Scandinavian furniture, with ultra-skinny legs, dominating interiors in recent years, it makes sense that décor would swing back toward weighty, low-slung pieces. Plinth tables are perfect, heavy pieces meant for balancing out more delicate furniture in your space. Coupled with the recent hype over coloured marble and other stone finishes, these tables are expected to be quite sought after in 2019.
Over the past few years we've seen the push from dusty pastel tones to deep jewel hues overtake interior design trends; following the full colour spectrum. This year we're predicting that bold primary colours are going to make a comeback! Bold rusty reds, deep indigo blues, and bright mustard yellows are already seeing a lot of attention in the latest décor collections, and we're expecting this trend to continue strongly into 2019.
These iconic pieces have always been coveted for their simplicity and natural aesthetic but haven't seen a lot of attention lately in austere design publications. However, this year we've seen that these beloved lanterns are getting a serious moment in décor. In fact, the interest has boomed so much that the trickle down to mass retailers has seen a boost. IKEA, which popularized the paper lanterns in the '90s, has already released a few new models in order to jump ahead of the trend!
Of course, rice paper lamps aren't the only lighting pieces that have seen a resurgence! Mushroom lamps (dome lamps) have seen a bit of interest in 2018, but something tells us this is only going to be amplified in 2019! Once again, major retailers are already jumping on the bandwagon and vintage models like the Oluce Attolo lamp becoming harder to find, all signs point to this trend gaining traction.
These predictions can help to encourage your creative spirit when it comes to decorating your new home this year. From maximalist interiors to rice paper accents and bold primary hues, these are the home décor and design trends to jump on. Now it's time to pick your favourites and get decorating!
