The next year will be dotted with unusual and exciting interior decoration trends: ice-cream pastels, geometric patterns and a reinvention of the Scandinavian style – these are all trends for 2019!
Some trends are fleeting and will not have a great adhesion by those that are planning to remodel their houses, but others are a complete game changer and you will see them everywhere in 2019.
Know what’s what and learn some suggestions to put them together in your home below.
01 / Earthy Tones
Just flick through a home decor magazine or watch your Instagram feed to see that this color palette is back.
A transition to a more conscious living is reflected in green and earth interiors. A mixture of beige and grey is coming back, as neutral tones and richer colors such as terracotta, deeper blues and warm greens.

02 / Japandi style
The Scandinavian trend is not a novelty and many believe that it is running out of steam, but think again because this style as just being reinvented!
Japandi combines the modern-rustic vibe of Scandinavian — or Nordic — designs with the traditional elegance that’s associated with Japanese styles. Together, they’re a new take on minimalism.

03 / Ethnic motifs
The globalization concept has an increasingly strong presence in our society. Today the whole world is at a click away and this privileged access is radically changing the way we live.
The consumer is more traveled and informed and wants to show this facet also in their homes and the decorating choices they make.
Some of the most prominent designers and fashion houses are drawing inspiration from the distant cultures of Asia and Africa and a myriad of their tribes. Such motifs are present everywhere – from a runway to high street fashion, which is exactly why they became so trendy and available to everyone and now they are getting their way into our homes.

04 / Bold Wallpapers
The wallpaper will be even more present in 2019. Make your wallpaper a focal point by selecting large colorful prints such as flowers, birds, clouds… In short, a touch of madness never hurts!

05 / Ice Cream Colors
Gelato colours are going to be a huge trend in both interiors and fashion this year.
You can mix up paint colours to suit your tastes. Introduce these pretty colours on a single wall or multiple if you feel brave and accessorise with pastel hued vases, dining chairs and tableware.

06 / Geometrics
Although we did see geometrics in 2017 it was mainly on cushions and rugs. This year it’s all about tiles, wallpaper and art.
Decoration will stop being only about accessories, furniture and wall paint. Flooring and ceilings are now getting the attention they deserve and they are an exciting trend for next year.

07 / Rugs as Wall Art
Statement rugs are trending on Pinterest and right now it’s all about hanging the humble floor accessory on the wall.
With searches up 236% this year, statement rugs are a great way to upgrade a floor rug to the wall as a piece of art.

08 / Statement Ceilings
The ceiling is often referred as the fifth wall but for years it has being neglected. While we spend hours agonizing about which paint color to use on our walls, the ceiling typically gets little to no thought at all.
How many times have you reached for that can of matte white paint to cover a ceiling in an otherwise colorful room?
We’re making a case for the fifth wall. A statement ceiling can entirely transform a space—and instantly make it feel unique and memorable. If your room is already decorated but missing a little something, try looking up 🙂

09 / Ombre
Ombre in interiors is a new trend, based on the color transition from dark tones to light tones or from one tint to another. This technique can also be called “degradation” or “gradient” and use it in various details of the design of the premises.
However, the implementation of such an idea requires a masterful approach, so if your not the artistic type we advise you to get an experienced painter to re-create this look in your home.

10 / Greenery continues
There’s more than aesthetics to this trend: plants are believed to be good for health, and help clean the indoor air.
Wellness can be fostered through the ‘living’ decor plants provide – they absorb harmful chemicals and regulate humidity – and they’re an inexpensive way to add instant colour and glamour to home interiors.
