Summer decorating trends for 2019

The New Year is almost upon us, and with it comes a whole new host of ideas and inspiration to transform your home. 2018 saw a lot of minimal lines and use of a handful of with texture, and in 2019 it looks like there will be a few additions to what is contemporary and modern.

Making your home work for you and lifestyle are always a priority when it comes to styling interiors, here’s an overview of what we think will be big next year.

Much like this year, keeping things pared back and functional will likely remain popular in 2019. Having furniture that works in multiple layouts is a plus (think two-piece couches and chairs) when it comes to creating spaces that can cater to intimate gatherings or entertaining more people.

Colour and texture

Deep, rich colours could be the new neutrals next year, or for the less adventurous they’ll be great accents to greys and lighter shades like apricot and teal. Natural fabrics are becoming increasingly popular, so by mixing them in with complementary colours in pillows or blankets you can create depth and laid back sophistication in a flash.

This includes curtains and blinds, which are often overlooked as areas that can be used to up the ‘wow’ factor of a space. Voile sheers can be soft, airy accents in the warmer months and it’s possible to add thermal linings when the temperature drops for a year-round colour or texture that remains functional.

The same goes for roller blinds, which are available in a huge range of colours and texture that can be styled to the rest of your room, space or entire home.

On-trend items

We saw bar carts become really popular this year, and it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere. Available in a range of styles (art deco to modern/contemporary), they’re a great way to store precious glassware and move wherever they good times flow.

Candles and blankets are also added extras that create a cozy retreat you can come home to each day. They offer texture, colour and especially in the case of candles an atmosphere to suit any mood.
