Read below and pick what suits your best interest and start decorating.
Feel of summers in winters
What’s warmer than a natural wood environment? You sitting infront of a fireplace covered in fluffy comforting blankets would be the best possible feeling when you are freezing on a chilly day. Natural wood is always a favorite and is predicted to make a powerful comeback this winter. This material is nothing like anything that brings a sense of warmth no other materials can! It can be either used for furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and much more. The beauty of this material stands in the fact that it is evergreen and provides the best touch even in a modern home.
Wood in today’s modern interiors is a reinterpretation of the already existing concepts: statement walls, high beams, finished ceilings and treated floors. Thanks to its earthen glow and natural texture, wood organically adds sincerity in homes where steel and concrete became strongly-used staples. It makes a room grounded, enhancing contemporary spaces with an inspiring sense of rusticity.
As opposed to dark hues, neutral tones are often chosen to create a quiet atmosphere that can easily be decorated with a monochromatic palette, or a surprising pop of colour. For a bit of variety, designers might use wood panels as a feature corner wall, providing a contrast against plain concrete, brick, or stone surrounds. Copper, silver tones, glass and steel also work great with the materials mentioned above. They can be used to highlight the beauty of the wood or as accessories. Regardless, it’s recommended to use them in limited amounts, at least during the winter.
Hottest colour in action
Last year was all about bringing an edgier palette into the home–with vibrant reds, modern metallics, and variations of the statement black accent wall. Unlike 2018’s colour trends, 2019 is taking a more mindful, lifestyle-based approach to the development of new shades.
We are yelling yellow! Pinterest predicted that yellow would be a big hit this year and we couldn’t agree more, yellow is everywhere. From mellow pastels to rich mustards, these hues have graced catwalks, high streets and homes for months now and there’s no sign of it slowing as we go into the next season.
Other options could be woodland shades keeping the natural tones in mind like mushroom grays and fern-inspired colours.
To instantly energize and uplift the mood, you can also go for coral based colours or instead of using coral literally you can separate it into it’s pink and orange counterparts.
Hunter green also is a big game this year. It holds a sultry and wordly value to it. It’s timeless in every respect, and works beautifully with natural elements and neutral tones.
Deep saturated colours is another mood, perfect for custom built-ins. Ideally used in a room with abundance of natural light.
In 2019, we’re going to see blues with a softened mistiness and haze. This moody blue has a calming grey undertone that promotes a more serene energy in the home.
Pale pinks are prevailing in 2019 due to their neutral properties and compatibility with other shades.
The minimalist movement has encouraged many modern homemakers to live a more clutter free, thoughtful life. With this, shades associated with minimalism–creams, beiges, and whites–are being incorporated into many home palettes.
Grey is still proving popular and we’re especially infatuated with Crown’s new interpretation of the trend. Inspired by rustic, earthy tones, Grey Suede is a textured matte paint that creates the effect of brushed suede. Strong enough to stand-up to brighter shades, it makes a great backdrop for a bold graphic wall in a hallway or living room.
Soft and fresh, neo mint is set to soar by 2020. Its pale botanical-inspired hue is a soothing choice for a bedroom and would even work well on the walls of a unisex nursery. Here, it’s been paired with a pale blue skirting band for a quirky two-tone effect.
In a twist from the bright reds we saw last year, the deepest bodied of wines, Merlot, is the next big shade on the horizon. Rich and luxurious, contrast is key to making this stunning shade really sing. Combine with soft woods and copper accents for a cozy living room that really packs a punch.
Quick Note: Another color that’s been working extremely well this winter is gold. You can use it as an accessory, as a highlight in combination with other colors or as the dominant color. It may be a bit too much to make gold the main color in your living room, but it’s a bold statement and brings in a lot of warmth.
Velvet-a mysterious, luxurious fabric has been back for a while now but we still can’t get enough of it. Many people are apprehensive about the use of velvet as it is a heavy, overwhelming fabric. However, when used correctly, velvet can add a touch of luxury, glamour and warmth to your living space.Tactile and durable with a hint of decadence, the texture will instantly turn a room from drab to fab. At its most vamp-like in deep tones, it brings a touch of gothic glamour to the home but it can be found in every colour imaginable to effortlessly blend with your interior. So this season why not try some pastel velvet accessories?
As the main furnishing in the bedroom, the bed sets the tone for the entire space and contributes considerably to the style of the decor. The right bed can also make the master bedroom or guest room more luxurious and comfortable. Velvet beds offer the ideal mix of plush comfort and sophisticated style to complete the bedroom in an elegant way and make the space into a refuge from the world.
Velvet beds are an excellent choice for anyone who sits up to read or watch television due to their padding and sumptuous fabric. In any bedroom, the plush look of velvet makes a refined statement that elevates the space. Velvet curtains are another interesting element that can instantly uplift a room. Whether you install them in a bedroom or living room, it will compose a polished look. Velvet curtains do not require complicated patterns. Its unique texture and color can better reflect their hidden luxury.
Swap minimalism for maximalism
While the world of interiors has been dominated by minimalist Scandinavian design these past few years, we’re heading toward a return to more maximalist tendencies—all in a fresh and modern way. That’s not to say everyone will revert to a more traditional or classic style. Instead, we predict people will be more thoughtful about acquiring long-lasting pieces from different periods and styles to create interiors that are intrinsically unique.
Bigger is better, right? One of our favorite winter 2019 interior design trends is not just wallpaper, but large scale print wallpaper. Bring the outdoors in with botanical prints, or try solid backgrounds for a more subtle pop. If wallpaper is too much of a commitment, don’t worry!
