With a new year lands new home design trends, and 2019 doesn’t disappoint when it comes to materials, form, colour and texture. 2018 saw millennial pink take centre stage, 70s terrazzo and metallic finishes creating high-shine in our homes.

No matter what size house, budget or direction you want to take your interior, filtering new home design trends has never been easier. Whether it’s a new wall colour, a statement piece of furniture, a piece of art or simply changing the way you style a room.

Here are some of our top home design trends for 2019 including some firm favourites making a comeback.


2019 Home Design trends

Designers are focusing on ways to create conscious environments, exploring natural materials, renewable resources and delving deep into how our surroundings impact our wellbeing. Their approach is becoming more aware of eco-living, looking at key pieces that will stand the test of time and using aesthetics that create spaces with grounding and a sense of wellness. Interiors will take on a zen approach, think raw woods, woven furniture, hybrid materials and plant life.

Colour Roundup

Moving into a new year comes a showcase of colour, whether that’s a rich new colour palette from an internationally renowned trade show or a bold new hue from Pantone. The shades you choose are not only limited to a single statement painted wall or a set of cushions. Take a look at what colour trends have stood out for us and how they can be used in unexpected ways.

Dulux Cherished Gold

There’s no denying yellow is an uplifting colour, whether it’s a soft barely-there hue – perfect for contemporary bedrooms – or a zingy citrus shade, yellow accents are this season’s must-have. To create a sophisticated palette with this warm, poppy shade pair with soft neutrals, millennial pink or matte black. Take a look at more yellow interior inspiration here.

Dark Saturated Tones

2019 Colour Trends

Arlo and Jacob Vesper Chair | John Lewis Palazzo Collection

Deep saturated tones as seen at the Salone del Mobile show 2018 will become ever more popular this year. Pair forest green or Farrow and Ball’s new colour Bancha with stained timbers, taupe, charcoal or bold mustard yellows. If you’re unsure where to start with this trend try layering colour a step at a time, then add key pieces of furniture and texture to create depth and decadence.

Urban Gardening

2019 Interior Trends

Garden Trading Herb Pot | Vertical Garden Inspiration Via Pinterest | Patch Cassie Plant

According to Pinterest, searches for vertical gardens has increased by 287 per cent this year. As our cities continue to grow and gardens are at a premium we are discovering more and more ways to bring the outdoors in. The home design trends for indoor plants has grown massively, and what better way to add a touch of green to your interior than with an urban jungle from Patch, woven hangers from independent makers, terrariums styled on shelving or go all out with an indoor vertical garden. Not only do indoor house plants look stylish they also improve air quality and help with health and wellbeing.

Curved and organic silhouettes

Curved and Organic Silhouettes

Broste Copenhagen Caspa Brass Finish Desk Lamp | Bethan Gray Feather Collection Dining Chair | Zara Home Wooden Mirror

Inspired by the Art Deco movement we are now edging towards softening our interiors, replacing harsh lines with circles, curves, scalloped edges and organic forms. This trend is forecast to become of importance over the next year as we yearn for our own comforting and peaceful sanctuary. Use curved sofas to take the edge off a room, add lighting with sculptural or spherical forms or style shelving with pieces that have circular silhouettes and retro nostalgia.

Crittall Style

Black Opus Staircase

Opus Steel Staircase Design

Crittall-style can be seen everywhere from our homes to retail and studios. Not only do the industrial style frames make perfect statement doors and windows, they can also create beautiful, dramatic extensions, sleek room dividers to enhance light flow and even make impressive bathroom features.

You can choose from a variety of metal frame thicknesses and grid styles giving your space a warm, industrial feel or minimalist Scandi look. Find more Crittall-style inspiration on our Pinterest.

Line art

“The craftsmanship is superb”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
