Every year interior design trends evolve and develop. Changing tastes and new innovations help to push products and designs forward, ensuring there are always plenty of new, stylish furnishings and accessories to choose from. 2018 is no different, with several new trends emerging that are guaranteed to be influential in the coming months.
Geometric forms have been growing in popularity for some years now and in 2018 we’re going to see a lot more of them. Their repetitive patterns and eye-catching colours make these timeless designs perfect for furnishings and accessories and a number of major manufacturers are producing pieces inspired by geometry.
Elegant and Classic
As good quality furnishings are designed to last for years, it’s important that their aesthetics don’t fall out of fashion. Many designers are using themes that are classic, timeless and elegant, helping homeowners to find pieces that will sit comfortably in their interiors for years.
Fun, colourful and attractive, tropical themes are becoming increasingly popular in homes up and down the country. Think cacti, palms, thick greenery and other elements that instantly conjure up images of hotter climes.
Warm metallic colours are fantastic for interiors of all types. Using brass, copper and gold in key points in your home will help to add an eye-catching feature to the space and bring your interior to life.
Giving homes an instantly luxurious feel, marble is a great choice for flooring, kitchens and bathrooms. Easily combined with other 2018 design trends, this versatile material will make a great addition to your home.
Mirrors are a great way to bounce ambient light around a space and make a room feel bigger and brighter. They can also act as a stylish focal point for a room and be used as wall art in your interior. Find a mirror with a warm metallic frame to combine two of this year’s key trends.
Colour is an incredibly important part of interior design. In 2018 we’re likely to see grey continue its dominance of the colour palette, but other, bolder tones are going to become increasingly popular as the year goes on. Key colours for 2018 include violet, navy, emerald green and inky blues.
