As cliché as it sounds, there certainly is value in using the beginning of the year as a fresh start, whether you’re working on fixing your diet, picking up a new hobby, or starting a reading habit. In addition to working on yourself, the new year is also a good time to take on the task of redecorating your home — after all, home is where the heart is.
If you’re on the lookout for what’s new in the world of home decor, look no further. This curated list of the most popular interior design fads for 2019 will be your guide to a renovation that shows you’re in with the times.
Make your home blossom with floral decor
If you’re looking for a way to decorate your interiors with colourful designs and patterns, how about adding a dose of floral flourishes to lighten up your home’s vibe? The traditional beauty of flowers can add a pleasant touch to any room, giving it an aura of calm serenity.
You can include floral designs everywhere from curtains and rugs to cushions and tablecloths, and in various styles and hues — just pick the right balance of elements that makes you feel good!
Play with shapes to create geometric patterns
If you’re looking to give your home a more artistic vibe, how about using geometric design elements to evoke a feeling of balance and symmetry?
Show your creative side by introducing familiar shapes in your rooms. Products like art pieces or bedding like blankets and pillows that feature minimal patterns can help make a statement in a room that is mostly neutral in its design.
Add a splash of Living Coral
The Pantone Color Institute recently announced Living Coral — “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone” — as its ‘Color of the Year’ for 2019.
Add a touch of colour to your rooms this year by picking up furniture and accessories in a unifying colour. You could also use wallpaper to fit in to your home’s aesthetic and keep it looking bright and inviting.
Use metallic tones for a polished feel
If your go-to choice of material for furniture is wood, consider breaking the monotony by adding some metallic tones to your repertoire this year.
The polished look of metallic furniture and fixtures can add an aura of warmth to your space. Shades of gold, silver, and brass add a vibe of luxury to your decor, while brushed metals like chrome and nickel lend a spark without being the center of attention. Be sure to choose the right materials for your desired look and feel!
Go green and eco-friendly
There’s more to interior design than just visual appeal. People are now moving away from buying mass-produced furniture in favour of buying sustainable products, installing energy-saving home appliances, and keeping live plants indoors for fresher air.
You too can do your part for the environment while reaping the benefits of going eco-friendly — increase energy savings, reduce costs, and even improve the air quality inside your home!
Redecorating your house may seem like a stressful activity because of the ever-changing trends in design and the availability of nearly endless options. But with the right approach, you can decorate your house in a way that shows you’re up to date with the latest trends.
