As we head into Autumn 2018, we’ve seen a few different trends come to the forefront of interior design, with some coming through from late 2017 to this year and continuing to be a hot design trend.
Here we look at 4 key trends that are still trending this year – do you have any of these in your home?
Pastel tones are here, and they are here to stay. From colouring your own hair with pastel colours, the trend has now extended to home life too. Many people are choosing dark, bold furniture and then accenting it with pretty pastel accessories. This works great in both modern and traditional properties.
The geometric trend has been adopted in modern properties through a variety of different furniture pieces. Everything from coffee tables to art has seen geometric patterns bring them to life, often with a Moroccan-infused feel too. Geometric patterns works great on cushions as sofa accents too.
The rose gold trend still doesn’t disappoint. Team a rose gold pendant light with a dark grey kitchen and you have an instant winner, with the copper tones creating a warm and stylish environment wherever they are used. Rose gold has been a trend hit for a few years now and it’s definitely here to stay.
For those of us that like to experiment with our colours and interior design skills, contrasting colours is a great way to showcase a vibrant interior in a cool, modern way. Back in the day, we would have never have considered teaming colours like pink and red together but these days, such colour contrasts are in vogue. The bolder you can be, the more you’ll marvel at your colour creation in your home.
Dark and Moody
When it comes to sofas and the like, a dark colour can work well in both small and large rooms. Team dark, sultry colours with pale pops of colour and you have a great combination. Dark mahoganies with table top accessories can lift a room. Many might steer away from dark colours in their home for fear of making the space feel small and dark but, if done right, dark colours can create a homely feel with rich textures and bold designs.
