Trends in interior design that will impress you in 2019
Next year will be the year of a decorative explosion in the interior design sector. After years of enjoying styles such as the industrial, the Nordic or the navy, time has come to unify trends in the same space and to achieve eclectic designs full of personality and good taste.
In case you are passionate about interior design or thinking of giving a different touch to your house, read this article. Here we bring together the trends in interior design that will burst in 2019. You will not know which one to pick.
Betting on a single decorative style is in the past
As we commented at the beginning of this post, 2019 will be the year of a revolution in the field of interior design. Thus, achieving unique and completely personal spaces will depend on your ability to connect and adapt styles.
Styles such as the Nordic or Scandinavian are left behind. Next year we will no longer have to decide which style we like best to decorate every corner of our home. The combination of different trends that can coexist in a single space or can be used in different rooms creating multiple environments will have open doors.
We are aware that adapting the minimalism of some styles with the Rococo nature of others is not easy, but balance will be the key to elegance and class. The combination of different styles will lead to spaces difficult to copy. Would you visualise an industrial environment with rustic touches? And a navy style with ethnic touches? Next year you will not need to imagine such things; you will be able to experiment without fear because any decorative element will be totally up-to-date.
Eco-friendly materials in eco-friendly houses
We know that modern architecture is aimed at sustainability and environmentalism. A few years ago, developers committed to building with natural building materials, respectful with the environment in which developments are built. Therefore, it seems reasonable to internalise such philosophy and apply it also to interior design.
Thus, we will find spaces in our homes combined with nature in which relaxing and disconnecting from the routine will become more and more easy. We will welcome materials such as cork, esparto grass or wood that we must combine in an aesthetic but also functional way.
These three materials give a lot of scope in the field of decoration. Wood is still fashionable but next year will bet on wood with darker shades such as ebony, grenadillo or oak. We will see how furniture stands out above any other ornament. Esparto, will provide a rustic touch to any space. This material extracted from various wild plants will stand out on carpets, blinds and even lamps. And as for cork, we cannot think of a better way to include it than covering the walls of a studio or office. Besides being aesthetic, it will help you to have all your notes in order.
Floors and walls take on a special role
During 2019 no decorative element can be left to chance. Therefore, paying special attention to the walls and floors of your home will be a success in order to follow the trends in interior design. Tiles will have greater relevance in decoration and terracotta and terrazzo will return! Who said they were materials only for terraces and patios? Terrazzo will shine in the countertops of our kitchens and terracotta, although it seems difficult to use indoors, will be the perfect material to produce wall built-in shelves or arches to divide different rooms.
In addition, you won’t be able to resist to combine a variety of designs in wallpapers to create authentic works of art in every corner. They are easy to put on, with them you avoid needing to paint the space every so often and they give each wall an authentic personality.
Japanese philosophy makes it into homes
You probably have already heard about the Wabi Sabi and the Japandi styles, both of Japanese origin, but if you don’t know them, we introduce them to you because surely next year you will decide to bet on one of them.
The Wabi Sabi is a style that takes advantage of the beauty of the old, and the imperfect. Thus, it won’t be weird to have a stripped wood mirror without sanding in the living room, lamps inherited from an ancestor in the bedroom and in the hall, that vintage-style rocking chair that we didn’t know where to place. We cannot think of a better way to recycle and take advantage of elements that may seem old and even broken, but that will give a new meaning to interior décor.
Japandi is nothing else than a combination of the Nordic and Japanese styles. Both opt for minimalism as a guarantee of success in interior design, although each one has its own singularities. Coming from different parts of the world, the Nordic style has given us the feeling of relaxation offered by the white and gray colors and the sense of order derived from the absence of excessive decorative elements, the Japanese nevertheless provides warmer colors resulting in more welcoming spaces and a timeless elegance much more durable. Combining them, will undoubtedly be a success for next year.
The art of combining colors
Just as we expect a revolution in materials, styles and furniture, we also expect an explosion of colours in which the difficulty will lay in knowing how to combine them. Burgundy, watermelon-red, lilac and different shades of yellow ranging from lemon to mustard will be the perfect colours to create warm and welcoming spaces that will work regardless of the season.
White is always the winning horse in the field of interior design, but combining it with other fashionable colours such as gray, black and beige, and incorporating the correct proportions of any of those colours will produce excellent aesthetic results.
There are only three months left. We are looking forward to a promising year in terms of interior design trends. Are you ready to enjoy it?
