This year we’ve seen interior designers start to embrace the dark side in kitchen design, but we’re going to see even more of a shift in 2019. Instead of white cabinets, we’ve seen kitchens embracing navy and black tones; it is key to mention that darker colours have the ability to make a space feel smaller, so it’s important to decide how you want to incorporate the darker tones. If you’ve got a larger kitchen, add a lick of paint onto your cabinets, matte finishes as well as darker colours have been popular for kitchens and will continue to take over in the new year. If you’ve got a smaller space, opt for dark coloured appliances or dinner sets, to still get that mysterious colour pop.
Accessories are set to get ‘fringed’ up in the new year; we’ll see fringed cushions, fringed furniture and even fringed wall art! This chic trend adds a bit of fun into your interior and allows you to get a little more playful with your décor, fringing will definitely jazz up your home next year. You don’t want to go overboard and set your interior back to the ‘70s, but a few accessories can change the room dynamics, from fringed mirrors hanging above your dresser to a fringed pouffe to rest your feet on in your living room, you will find these accessories in any colour, so they can perfectly match with your current interior.
Scallops & Shells
We’re set to dive into the sea next year with scalloped and shell-shaped furniture; it’s going to be about embracing the curves and waves which symbolise the ocean. There are a number of ways you can add a bit of the deep blue sea into your home, from fish scale tiles in the bathroom to a shell-shaped chair in your dressing room, adding these small touches into your interior has the ability to have a calming effect.
Industrial style lighting has taken over our homes over the past few years, and we’re not seeing it slowing down in 2019! Whether you want to incorporate bare vintage bulbs, caged lighting or metallic domes in your space, they will all have the capacity to be the centrepiece in your room. Lighting has the ability to transform a space from poorly-lit and dull to an inspirational, cheerful room. You should consider which type of light will complement your interior; do you want a wall light, a flush mount or a pendant? Vintage lights put a twist on your décor.
Dulux has released the colour of the year for 2019, introducing spiced honey; the warm, caramel-toned colour is set to take over our homes in the new year. They decided on this colour to give us a refresh after the unpredictable 2018 we had! The rich colour has the ability to transform your home with just a lick of paint. The versatile colour can be described as nourishing, energising and calming, and is the perfect colour to match with any interior. As well as releasing the colour, colour experts also release four pallets that have the shade in them, paired with colours that will work perfectly together; from soft pinks, powder blues, bold teals and playful greens, whatever your interior, spiced honey is sure to give your home a refresh.
