Bedroom trends for 2019
Here's what's on the horizon style-wise. Get ready to embrace the cosmos, more scalloped edges, nude colours, concrete and Crittall doors.
Designers have been searching the skies for inspiration – with heavenly results. Think sophisticated astronomy and zodiac patterns, star-strewn plates, galaxy murals, galactic surfaces and cosmic tile work. From subtle hints to all-out tributes to the night sky, celestial motifs have been shooting across fashion and interiors.
Fringing is the retro look that’s back with a bang. The Autumn/Winter 18 catwalks were awash with fabulous tassel designs that swung and swayed their way down the catwalks. The embellished looks is also proving popular with interiors, with the trend making its way onto cushions and curtains, mirrors and lamps. Swooshing into the home, fringing is big news for the season’s hottest homeware. With fringe-factor top of the design agenda, designers are turning to tassels and fringe to add a flirty edge to home interiors. Swish, swish.
Scallops and scales
We’re calling it the ‘Blue Planet effect’ because this season’s interior looks took a dive deep under the ocean with sea creatures swimming across every surface. From scalloped furniture (we’re loving the super scalloped A/W18 Anthropologie x Bethan Grey collection) to fish scale tiles and all things curved, wavy and ocean-inspired, we’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for the under the sea trend.
There’s no denying that Crittall-style has been staging a comeback – and not just as windows and doors, but as walls, rear extensions, room dividers and even shower screens. Edgy and versatile, the sturdy, slim-profile frames tap into the current trend for all things industrial. It’s no wonder Crittall-style has been dominating our Pinterest feeds. They have the ability to completely transform a space; not just by giving it a cool, modern edge, but also by opening up a space and letting in more light. Crittall style doors allow you to cleverly partition open areas to create different zones, without compromising on light or space. Metal framed glazing has never looked so good.
Would you go nude? The latest interiors trend is barely there, warm, earthy neutrals. For the past few years, grey has dominated the neutral interiors palette. But sandy shades are back, and proving to be anything but boring. Now don’t get us wrong, we love grey, but we’ve found ourselves increasingly drawn towards the warmer, friendlier tones of oatmeal and stonewashed linen. Think fleshy toned, earthy jute, canvas, wool, wood and hemp – which, face it, all sound way nicer than beige.
While many interiors trend have a sell-by date, Mid-Century Modern style somehow never goes out of style. There’s no denying Mid-Century modernism is everywhere, providing style inspiration for everything from the latest hotels, restaurants and barsto luxe new apartments. The design classic Eames chairs are everywhere and the cocktail cabinet essential of the two martini lunch is fast becoming a modern must-have. 1950s chic never goes out of style with low-slung lines and natural woods still influencing designs today.
Searches for velvet have increased by 400% over past six months and is the most searched for fabric. Sumptuously seductive, velvet beds and velvet sofas are some of the most covetable ways to bring the look home.
