If you didn’t brave a statement colour in 2017 then 2018 could be your year, as popping paint is set to stick around.
A deep blue will create drama in your dining room, whilst a dark grey will transform your bedroom from basic to boudoir. If you want to take things even further, try a patterned paper. Matthew Williamson’s Flamingo Club paper combines antique gold, cerise, coral and jade plus an eye-catching pattern which is guaranteed to add a little ‘wow factor’ to your home.
This year it’s not just about look but touch too. Despite dark colours being ‘in’, this trend proves it’s not all about colour. You’re likely to see more textures than ever before. Items with a natural handmade vibe will be increasingly popular so don’t be afraid to mix up different textiles.
This wall hanging from Rose and Grey, is guaranteed to make a strong style statement on a plain wall, despite the natural hues. The addition of a rattan chair (you could try this one from Tikamoon) and tribal-inspired cushion from Matalan will create a cosy corner. Add to that this unique handwoven rug from French Connection and you can add both depth and character to your room.
Metallic accents are the perfect way to add glamour in your home. This year say goodbye to copper and rose gold and hello to more industrial shades such as brass and nickel.
If you only want to make subtle changes, Cox and Cox‘s brass and glass trinket box is the perfect accessory whilst Made‘s brass mirror can add a luxe touch. But if you want to make a real statement you could try adding an art deco style bar trolley like this one from Atkin & Thyme – guaranteed to take your living room from casual to cool.
You’re likely to see a furniture switch up this year as bleached woods are set to be replaced with darker wood tones. Unlike light woods which can add a beachy or Nordic feel, darker woods can add a sense of warmth and luxury.
This super sleek console table from Swoon Editions can add an industrial twist and a stylish storage option. However, if you’re wanting to stick with a Scandi style, this walnut coffee table from Dunelm would be a quirky and useful introduction to your home and of course, in line with this year’s interior trends.
Magnolia was once the go-to neutral, followed by white and of course now, grey. Grey has, and does, still provide the perfect base for any room – whether you want a cool or warm tone, you can always find the right shade. However, this year the interior trends have changed, and there’s a new neutral in town. Say hello to sage.
Pinterest searches for sage are up 170% and we can see why. It’s soft and subtle but also striking. It’s rich yet very versatile too and it oozes feelings of nature and serenity.
Crown‘s Mellow Sage in Matt is an easy choice, whilst Farrow & Ball‘s Vert de Terre promises a chalky finish and a colour reminiscent of the pigment green earth.
