2019 is well underway, and while you may already have left your New Year’s resolutions by the wayside, the start of a new year marks the perfect opportunity to give your living space a refresh (and boost your home’s value in the process).
Check out our top picks for interior design trends in 2019, along with tips on pieces you can use to incorporate these looks into your home without blowing out your budget.
Natural elements like wood and gold are set to play a big role in 2019 interior design trends, which aligns with a shift towards organic-inspired shapes and sustainably-sourced materials. This year’s trending colour palette will also feature bolder hues in line with Pantone’s vibrant 2019 Colour of the Year – Living Coral.
It’s no surprise that Mid-century Modern is also making a resurgence in home decorating trends, as solid wood elements and bold shades like burnt orange and turquoise are central to this classic design movement. And, with the Marie Kondo craze in full-swing, expect to see more organisationally-smart and multifunctional pieces such as pull-out beds and hideaway storage cabinets coming to the forefront.
Although interior design styles may seem to disappear as soon as they arrive, with the right approach, you can create a space in your home that incorporates the latest trends while maintaining that timeless appeal.
The trick is to make small changes that have a noticeable impact – a new set of cushions here, a new piece of furniture there – but don’t significantly alter the foundation of your home. And remember, when you’re gearing up to sell, it’s best to stick with contemporary but neutral interior design hacks that will appeal to the broadest audience.
