There are some great home decor trends on their way this year, from sleek minimalism to plush and opulent interiors. Read on to discover our forecast of the hottest upcoming interiors trends…

Velvet furnishings

They started to edge their way in during 2018 but never really caught on in a big way. But many interior designers are predicting that 2019 will be the year velvet furnishings really boom.

Function over form

Functional furniture is everywhere at the moment because simple, understated designs are so versatile. Simple side tables like this one will suit almost any room and are ideal for showing off your favourite books, photographs or ornaments.

Brass fixtures

Brass fixtures like these really draw the eye in any bathroom or kitchen. They work well in contemporary and period properties and can be styled in a simple, industrial, way or for a polished and sleek look.

Industrial style

Think big lighting, simple furniture, exposed concrete and beams. Industrial style will still be going strong through 2019.

1970’s chic

The 1970’s are well and truly making a come back. Expect cosy furs, complimentary clashing colours and some very retro prints on cushions and wallpapers.

Eclectic patterning

Sometimes less is more, but sometimes, well, more is more. Big bold prints and shabby chic furniture and tableware will be hot this year – so keep your eyes peeled at those flea markets and vintage fairs!

Burnt yellow

Last year we told you all about “milennial pink”. This year’s hottest colour will be burnt yellow. This warm autumnal shade works so well as a accent in an otherwise minimalist room – create a bright wall or invest in a piece of statement furniture.
