Looking for a way to refresh your home this year? Discover the top interiors trends for 2018 and the pieces to invest in.
Violet and Emerald
Grey has definitely been enjoying its moment in the interiors spotlight, but bold colour is set to return in a big way for 2018. Whether you feel like brightening up your space with a statement wall or piece of furniture, a lively hue can totally change the feel of a room. Experiment with deep violet, elegant navy and emerald green – all key shades for 2018.
Before you invest in more Scandinavian pale-wash wooden furniture, you may want to think again as 2018 sees dark wood returning to favour. If you’re not completely sold on the trend, try updating a current piece of furniture with a darker wash first, adding a touch of opulence with metallic handles.
Leather and velvet
Leather and velvet are set to be 2018’s most popular textures, so get prepared to get tactile this season. While velvet is predicted to make its way into the living room by way of soft furnishings, leather upholstered headboards and quilted chairs promise to bring unadulterated luxury to the bedroom.
Bring a well-travelled feel to your home this season with prints and patterns inspired by exotic locations. Be transported to new climes with global-inspired cushions, throws and rugs in natural textures and earthy shades of ochre, clay and terracotta. In the kitchen, brighten your table with Ikat and paisley-printed dinnerware.
If you’re looking for an original way to update a room, consider a statement ceiling. Whether you opt for a solid colour, a bold wallpaper or ornate tiles, it’s the perfect excuse to get creative and think outside of the box. In the last year, Pinterest has seen a 310% increase on searches for ‘statement ceiling’ so head there for inspiration.
