From plush sofas to warm neutrals replacing gray-washed rooms, stay in the know about the biggest interior design predictions for the coming year.

 

THE RETURN OF WALLPAPER – Wallpaper is having a huge comeback and is much more interesting than it once was with fresh new patterns, new materials, and color options. Dimensional fabrics are also entirely changing the game and are opening up the field of possibility for wallpaper.

AWAY WITH GRAY – Grays are now in the midst of a warming trend. Cold and sterile shades are out and there is a return to warmer natural neutral tones of beige and cream. Blush is also a new neutral. It pairs with natural tones for a calming palette. It can be combined with bold colors like navy, forest green, or citrine, and it allows the bold color to be the hero.

CURVES –Embrace a curvy design aesthetic. 1960’s & 70’s-inspired rounded furniture will be back with curved lines taking hold on tabletops and even rugs, but most notably on sofas. It is a 2019 interior design trend to consider bringing into your home – even if it’s in the form of a simple side chair or utility bench because the home of 2019 is abandoning straight lines and harsh angles. 

PLUSH – People are moving towards rich plush, sofas, chairs, and pillows. Their rounded shapes and often over-stuffed bodies scream comfort and relaxation while hinting at luxury. Large, plush pillows are increasingly used with these plush seats, and can also be put on existing chairs and sofas to create a hint of luxuriousness without replacing everything. 

SPA BATHROOMS –  People are continuing to make their bathrooms more inviting and conducive to relaxation by adding hot tubs and large stand in shower spaces. Granite and marble are also increasingly popular in bathrooms as well and are set to continue being so way beyond 2019. A general return to nature can be noticed in the most recent interior design trends, and bathrooms reflect that as well.

NATURAL ELEMENTS – STONE, WOOD – Our fascination with natural materials and the visual texture they add to our interiors will continue. More people are trying to combine their need for luxury and artistic expression with sustainable living. We should see more and more repurposed furniture, wood, and textiles making their way into our living rooms coming into 2019. 

GEOMETRICS & PATTERNS – Geometric patterns almost never go out of style  Yet for the new year geometric patterns are expected to become a dramatic presence. This is a trend that will help make a bold statement in any room. 

KITCHENS THAT OPEN TO THE OUTDOORS  – Outdoor entertaining and cooking will continue to be popular.  Homeowners in warmer climates are transforming patios into extra seating areas, with durable rugs, cushions and fabrics. Expect to see more kitchens completely open to decks and patios via collapsible doors and window walls in the coming year.

Use the interior design trends identified for 2019 as a source of inspiration. They should be a guide on how to decorate or redecorate your home. Pick what works best for you and update where you feel it is needed.
