Pinterest is the app of the moment. If you spend any time on the app at all it leaves you lusting over interiors, dreaming about soft furnishings and always wanting to rearrange your home. Instagram is another platform that leaves you envious over other people’s home interiors, but 2019 is your year, this is the year to transform your home into the sanctuary you have always dreamed of.
2019 is the year of creating drama. Bold, deep colours create a high contrast to fresh white walls and fresh light linen. Why not introduce dark cushions, artwork or curtains to your home to create that perfect ‘monochrome-esque’ effect. Layering neutral tones against dark is all the rage and paired together can really add that extra edge to a space.
I know what you are thinking… dark colours seem a little out there, and you are finding it hard to commit to adding moodier tones throughout your home. Black, navy and forest green are tones people are often reluctant to experiment with, however, after seeing photos of designs, it is evident that these colours create a warm and serene setting.
Indoor plants are a classic addition to any home, and a timeless trend, like a gift that just keeps giving. Will these green goodies ever go out of fashion? Greenery adds a pop of colour to your home and is a cheaper way of adding colour. Have you considered artificial plants? They are practically indistinguishable from the real thing, only they require a lot less maintenance with no wilting or cleaning required, perhaps just the occasional dust.
Why not go all out and add a touch of glamour to your home this year? Start with choosing some glitzy wall paint, as a subtle metallic bronze effect can complement any existing colour scheme. Accessories and furniture in rich metallic hues will feature heavily this year. Antique furnishings teamed with pastel tones or glass and marble will add a lavish touch to your home and by adding decorative art deco furniture, you can really recreate that 1920’s glamour.
Daring I Know! Incorporating patterns into your decorating scheme can be intimidating. However, with a little extra knowledge you will be able to mix and layer patterns successfully like a pro. Pattern mixes of any kind, whether that be in fabrics, tiles or rugs, experiment by matching them, layering them, pairing them and clashing them. Patterns on patterns is a fresh way to add splashes of colour and personality to your home. English country manor meets a Parisian home, elegant 1920s living meets New York bachelor pad – clashing patterns allow your home to be whatever it wants to be!
