We’re a few weeks into January and the 2019 trend predictions are coming in thick and fast. Last week, we saw how the renewed focus on sustainability is transforming the ways we interact with food. Now, we’re looking at general interior design trends for 2019. Here are 6 of our favourites.

The ‘metric system

With Pinterest revealing that searches for geometric paint jumped 225% in the closing months of 2018, it’s no surprise that our Dark Blue Geometric Kitchen has been getting so much attention. You can read all about that project (and even steal the tile idea) here.

Upcycling floor tiles

Bold statements are the order of the day, but there’s no need to throw out perfectly good floor tiling. This year, we’re going to see more and more people upcycle their existing parquet floors by painting them in mosaic patterns and bold colours. In fact, Pinterest searches for ‘painted floor tiles’ are up 1276%. Wow.

Mustard: a must-have

The 70s revival will continue to reign in 2019, as demonstrated by the trend for mustard yellow walls (or just pops of that gloriously retro colour). We love to add a playful touch with a painted interior cupboard.

More than a miner trend: tin is in

This cropped up in our blog on kitchen trends recently, but it’ll be taking over your whole home in 2019. From backsplashes to wallpaper, we’re seeing a wave of tinspiration take over interiors. We love working with metals (whether bold, antiqued, or any other style that suits our clients’ homes), so this is one we’re really excited to see play out.

Cunning plants

Not only will cacti and succulents continue to fill our homes; we’re also going to see the rise of vertical gardens. Newbies had better stick with a selection of creatively-arranged cacti, whereas greenthumbs might try their hand at the notoriously tricky but showstopping statement that is a vertical garden.

Dark blue kitchens

With searches for dark blue and even black kitchens up 93%, we’re speaking with lots of clients about how to make this stunning look unique to their homes. Want to see an example of how we do it? Our Colourful, Fun Shaker Kitchen has been getting plenty of press coverage as an example of how to nail a trend while retaining individuality. Read more about it here.
