WHAT’S TRENDING IN LIVING SPACES FOR 2019?

Rose gold, subway tiles and exposed lighting were some of the top home decor trends of 2018. With a new year comes new decorating patterns, stylish, timeless pieces to fresh takes on old styles. 2019 is going to have some fantastic home design trends. Read on and watch out for the trends that are set to take over.

 

ARTISANAL FIXTURES

Like velvet pieces many designers have noticed a shift with more decorators partial to fixtures from local artist and small businesses, especially when it comes to lighting. Artisan fixtures personalize the home, and like natural elements, help shift a living space’s focus from the tech world to the natural world.

 

NATURAL ELEMENTS

Stepping away from the tech-obsessed decor we saw dominate the 2018 design trends, 2019 moves towards fresh, natural materials such as stone, copper, concrete, and granite. These elements will help bring an organic and serene ambiance to any space, making it an urban abode.

VELVET FURNISHINGS

Believe it or not, velvet was seen as old fashion and stuffy, now viewed as luxurious yet funky. This multi-dimensional fabric has already started gaining a lot of attention, leading many designers to believe velvet decor will be one of 2019’s most sought-after trends.

 

FLORAL PATTERNS

This decorating trend has been around for a while, in the upcoming year, however, we will see floral patterns in a new light. Decorators expect to find exaggerated proportions and contrasting colours used for this timeless decor pattern.

 

COPPER ACCENTS

Rose gold was one of 2018’s most used decor trend, yet for 2019 we expect to see less rose gold and more copper accents, along with a mixture of other metals. With its red and orange tones and overall earthy hue, copper is a much-needed breath of fresh air for the New Year.

 

RICHER COLOR PALETTES

Though muted colours can help avoid making spaces feel

overwhelming, 2019 is believed to be a year where bolder colours are preferred. Richer hues throughout the living space can make muted furnishings and decorative decor pop.

 

BRASS DÉCOR

2019 is setting up to be a year where we wave goodbye to stainless steel and polished nickel, and welcome brass accents into the living space. Brass is a surprisingly warm and subtle alternative to the expected steel accents.

 

BLACK & WHITE DÉCOR

A truly timeless design trend, black and white furnishings will be one of the highlights of 2019. The visual contrast of black and white will provide a sense of balance and boldness to the living space.

MILLENNIAL PINK

A massive hit in 2018, this trendy hue is getting a lot of attention. We’ve already seen this pink shade make its way into home decor and fashion, but for 2019 get prepared to incorporate this hue in new creative and unique ways, as an easy way to update any space.

TONAL REDS

The past few years we have seen designers and homeowners gravitate towards cooler colours such as blues and greens, so we are excited that warmer tones are going to be in for the New Year.

Tonal reds are a great way to add complimenting contrast while providing that warmth to a living space.

 

GEOMETRIC PATTERNS

Similar to floral patterns and brass decor, incorporating geometric patterns is no new trend. Yet for the New Year geometric patterns are expected to become a dramatic presence. Colours will be bolder with oversized patterns. This is a trend that will help make a bold statement in any room.

 

CONCRETE ACCENTS

Some may wonder why concrete has left the construction zone, yet 2019 will be the year it steps into many homes decor. Providing a crisp, clean look that’s easy to compliment Concrete isn’t just for countertops. Geometric concrete tiles will become this year’s hottest design trend.

 

VINTAGE LIGHTING

A trend that many will be shocked to see making its way back .The vintage lights we are expecting to see will be less exposed lighting and more of vintage pendants and sconces, in brass and copper finishes.

 

BUCKET SINKS

Also known as Trough sinks, bucket sinks join the list of vintage design trends that are predicted to make a massive comeback. Farm-house inspired, these pans are family friendly and will add personality and a touch a nostalgia to any kitchen or bathroom.

 

BURNT YELLOW

Previously this shade of yellow was seen as too overwhelming and dramatic, yet in this year, the bolder the better. Yellow is a colour that exudes happiness, confidence, and cheer. Whether used in accents or statement pieces, burnt yellow is sure to make a living space lively.

 

70’S CHIC

With many old design trends coming back in style this 2019, such as velvet and geometric patterns, our designers are expecting to see many nods to the 70s era. 70’s chic decor is all warm palettes, funky textures, and abstract silhouettes. Incorporating this trend into your home will bring out amazing personality into every living room or bedroom design.

AGATE WALLPAPER

Many seem to stay away from wallpaper in general, yet 2018 was a year that saw wallpaper used in more homes. 2019 will be no different, and it is all in print. Agate wallpaper is making a splash for its pops of colours. Its natural ununiformed lines and colours perfectly marry both the bold and natural trends we expect this year.

 

MATTE FINISHES

From beauty products to customized cars, technological advancements have made matte finishes all the more alluring and viable. Compared to the dramatic effect that high-shine finishes conjure, matte finishes lend furnishings a more relaxed, however, futuristic appeal.

 

CANOPY BEDS

Though they haven’t been in vogue since the late 80’s, we’ve seen a steady rise in grand canopy beds. It could be because hotel inspired bedroom suites have been all the rage over the past decade, or it very well could be that people are seeking out the ultimate comforting oasis.
