Refresh your home this spring with our favourite interior trends

Thu 28 Mar 2019

From understated pastels to bold hues, the revival of floral wallpaper to textured, natural materials – there’s an on-trend décor style for everyone in 2019.

Can’t make it to this year’s Ideal Home Show? If the lighter evenings and fresh growth of daffodils are inspiring you to refresh your décor and you’re after a little inspiration, check out our favourite interior trends of 2019 so far.

Natural elements

Stepping away from the tech-obsessed décor which dominated the 2018 design trends, 2019 has moved towards fresh, natural materials such as stone, copper, concrete and granite. These elements will help bring an organic and serene ambiance to any space while reflecting the world around your home – great news for lighter evenings!


Floral patterns

Whilst floral design is not a new decorating trend, floral décor has certainly been making its comeback in 2019, with decorators favouring exaggerated proportions and contrasting colours to make bold yet timeless statements.


Richer colour palettes

Though muted, natural colours can help you to avoid making spaces feel overwhelming, designers believe that by the end of 2019, we’ll have seen stronger, bolder accents coming through. Richer hues throughout the home can make your more muted furnishings and decorative décor pop, so look out for dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and organic, earthy greens.

Welcome brass

2019 is the year we’ve learned to wave goodbye to stainless steel and polished nickel, in favour of warmer brass accents, as we welcome them back into our homes. Adding to richer colour palettes throughout your home, brass is a surprisingly warm and subtle alternative to cooler, steel accents.


Millennial pink

Otherwise recognised as ‘dusty’ pink, this trendy shade was a massive hit in 2018. An easy, yet more understated, way of boosting an otherwise natural or muted colour scheme, incorporating this hue in new and unique ways is a simple way to update any space.


Geometric patterns

Similarly to floral patterns and brass finishings, incorporating geometric patterns is no new trend. Yet for the start of 2019, geometric patterns have already become a dramatic presence. Colours are bolder, with oversized patterns and eye-catching finishes.

This is a trend that will help to make a bold statement in any room – particularly bathrooms and kitchens. For larger living spaces, a chic and easy way to incorporate this pattern into your home décor is to add geometric throws.

Matte finishes

No, we’re not just talking about customised cars or beauty products, but matte finishes are everywhere you look, making them both alluring and viable. Compared to the somewhat dramatic effect that high-shine (previous years’ favourite) finishes conjure, matte finishes lend furnishings a more relaxed, yet modern and futuristic appeal.
