With 2019 fast approaching, you may already be thinking about updating your home to give it a fresh look for the new year. Here we’ve put together a list of interior ideas, room by room, to keep you up to date over the next 12 months It can be hard to find things that we love but looking at the most recent and up-to-date trends is a great way to gather inspiration and ideas
This season’s interior has increasing popularity of something called ‘scallops and scales’. This includes scallop effect chairs and sofas that give the room an ‘under the ocean’ feel. Pair these with different colours to give your lounge that fresh look with new colours, brightening up the room. These furniture styles are also brilliant for hallways, sitting rooms and snugs in your home.
On the opposite scale to the colours and unusual shapes, is the Mid-Century modern lounge furniture with block colours, low slung lines and natural wood, which is heavily influenced by the 1950’s. There are plenty of places to look, such as Wayfair, (www.wayfair.co.uk) for furniture in this style.
Softy sandy tones and light grey tones are predicted to be in this year for a dining room environment, creating a lovely homely space for the family to get together at mealtimes. Contrast these light, neutral tones with bright coloured chairs around the dining table to give you that splash of colour within a calm coloured room, ready for dining. Small details work well within a dining room; try an unusual chandelier and a centre piece to give a beautiful finish to the table décor.
A minimalist bedroom design not only gives you a calming environment to sleep in, it’s also a cosy and popular trend for 2019. Your new bedroom should be decluttered and freshened up with neutral colours and simple décor. Natural materials are a great use of colour – still giving you the minimal design and comfort that you need in your bedroom. This also links in with the Mid-Century modern look, with wooden and woven furniture giving a consistent look across the home.
Match your bed with your wardrobe, dresser and bedside cabinets in dark wooden colours and opt for nude, grey and stone coloured bedding, cushions and even pictures to go on the walls. However, it’s key not to go overboard with the number of pictures as well as keeping the number of knickknacks and additional pieces to a minimum.
Storage-wise, choose something that matches and is easy to keep compact in a corner out of the way, so you have somewhere to keep everything that you don’t always need to hand. For dressing areas and make-up tables, you can buy wall-mounted mirrors with storage cabinets behind them which take up virtually no space, allowing you to keep within the minimalist look.
As well as the scallop chairs that give you an ‘under the ocean’ feel for lounges and hallways, scaleshaped tiles in the bathroom are a massive trend coming in 2019. Mermaids and mermaid patterns seem to be everywhere; they have become a big part of popular culture so it’s not surprising that interior designers and home stores are gathering inspiration from them too!
In addition, an ‘under the ocean’ look is a great way to go for your bathroom. Pair these tiles with matching rose gold towel rails, taps and shower heads to really transform the look of your bathroom.
Contrasting colours, bright furniture and minimal bedrooms are definitely things to look out for this year. You can get inspiration from websites such as Pinterest and Instagram, and you will find that beautiful 2019 interior look that suits your home exactly as you want it.
