MiNDFOOD looks at a few of the big home decor trends still shaping 2019.
From the latest neutral colour palates and DIY decorating trends to minimalistic interior design ideas, 2019 is the year for returning to nature and making your living space uniquely you.
Wood instantly gives warmth to an interior, whether it is a piece of furniture, a floor or even a wall of wood.
Don’t hide your beautiful beams with paint or ceiling panels. Expose them and just protect them with a transparent lacquer and they will look beautiful. Incorporate a natural edge dining table or coffee table into your kitchen or living room.
While white kitchens may have been the trend over the past few years, this clean look will quietly give way to more natural wood finishes.
Sustainable and natural fabrics
Across homes, sustainable and natural fabrics are going to be a key trend that will hit the mainstream in 2019. Look for it in upholstered furniture, throws, cushions and tapestries. The movement towards natural fabrics speaks to the broader conversations across design right now that is all about embracing a peaceful retreat from crazy, modern life.
Just flick through a home decor magazine or watch your Instagram feed to see that this colour palette is back.
A transition to a more conscious living is reflected in green and earth interiors. A mixture of beige and grey is coming back, as neutral tones and richer colors such as terracotta, deeper blues and warm greens.
Antique and vintage furniture pieces will always hold a value of their own, but now they have found a new design role. Most of the people who bought antique furniture in the past had a vintage home design. Now home designers have started to combine antique and vintage furniture pieces with modern home design and the result is fantastic.
Your personal touch
For those of you who thought that the trend of handmade crafted furniture and accesories would go away we have news, it’s now bigger than ever. Handmade DIY pieces in shabby chic style are a huge trend because you can incorporate them in almost any design. Don’t be afraid to even try to make a piece by yourself.
Always remember, trends are first and foremost sources of inspiration, but they can also serve as a guide when you are about to decorate (or redecorate) your space. What makes an interior unique is the personal touch you bring to it.
