2019 Interior Design Trends
In 2018 we saw a lot of exciting things in Interior Design. In 2019 we will see a flood of unexpected trends, everything from the 90's to canopy beds. I was recently quoted in a Style at Home article regarding my 2019 Interior Design Trends forecast and I thought I would go into more detail below:
1. Big Brass
We've been riding the "gold" wave for the past few years but in 2019 brass will take the reins. The muted tones of this metal add elegance and class to any space. Seeking out vintage pieces is a great way to incorporate this trend into your home.
2. The 90's Are Back
90s trends have exploded in the fashion world and in many ways have been simmering in the interior design world for a few years. In 2019, 90s trends will have agency in interior design and, as with previous revivals, will come back fresh and inspired; we’re talking chintz florals, hollywood lighting, deep veined marble, chunky valences and puddled curtains - it’s all headed our way in 2019.
3. Take It To The Max
In 2019 maximalism will be a fair-weather trend, not for the faint of heart. With bold unabashed layering of prints, styles and eras the juxtaposition of the unexpected is at the heart of this trend. Throwing the rule book out the window giving credence to repetition and excess. We will see florals on florals, tartans on tartans, stripes on... well you get the idea. Plus, metals of different eras, an abundance of accessories and a focus on surfaces rather than storage. This wall to wall, floor to ceiling trend is expected to make a statement in 2019.
4. Wowzo Terrazzo
This composite marble is going to be big in 2019. You may remember it from the floor in your high school back in the day. Today's terrazzo will vary in size, colour and shape and will be used in floors, countertops and accessories. For an easy way to add terrazzo into your home check out these DIY terrazzo plates I created last month.
5. Canopy Beds
Renaissance canopy beds will be an unexpected micro-trend. They are turning heads and slowly making their way into our master bedrooms. We’re seeing these beds fully enclosed or with box-like crown canopy's adorned with ornate passementerie and curtains.
Looking forward to seeing how this all transpires in 2019. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for more trends, tips and tricks throughout the year. Happy New Year!
