I am just back from Madrid, Spain, where I attended the Casa Décor Expo. Six stories of the latest interior design trends and products for the home! It was full of modern lighting, luxurious fabrics, sleek kitchens, bright colours, soft textures and lots of greenery.
Here are the top trends in Interior Design for 2019:
Less is More: Pieces are selected with sustainability and careful consideration in mind. This is a pared-back, 70s look, with earth tones and lots of geometric prints.
Floral Fabrics and Wallpapers: Beautiful, floral and nature-inspired murals add drama and interest to bathrooms, hallways and bedrooms.
Mixing and Matching Patterns: Everything goes as long as you keep your colour palette all in the same tones — all bright or all muted.
Blush, Dusty Pink, Living Coral: Call it what you will, it is a soft pink that works well with other chalky hues and bronze. Or, to add drama, combine it with bright orange and reds.
Open Shelving: This continues to be a popular look, everywhere in your home.
Mustard Yellow: This colour is being used everywhere — in furniture, rugs and on walls. It works well with white, teal and indigo.
