My regular readers will know that we are planning to move home soon, fingers crossed it will be at some point this year. As always I am dreaming about how our forever home will look, what colour themes I want to use in different rooms and the same with lighting. I do have some nice lampshades and light fittings in our current home, however I do not want to take them with us. So I have started to look at the lighting design trends for 2019.
I’m not always into the latest trends and styles in both my fashion sense and my home, I generally look at what I like and how it would fit into my home. So seeing some of this years trends has really made me think more about my interior style. Festive lights have out together their very own lighting design trends for 2019.
I have seen lots of homes this year have dark navy walls, it seems to be popular with lots of interior designers. They then add blush, gold and copper shades along with dark wood furniture, and it looks fabulous all together. I really love this look and would love to have it in the living room, long with some tinted glass ceiling lights and geometric shaped table lamps in the gold and copper shades. I may even add an Edison bulb to give that extra bit of warmth to the room.
It’s a difficult one for me, as I have no idea how I want the kitchen to look. The only thing I do know is that I would love to have a country feel and have a large dining table or island that seat 8-10 people. Then have three lights hanging down over the table with an industrial look. It would appear the industrial light style is really popular this year.
The bathroom is one room I have spent a lot of time thinking about, since we stayed in at the beautiful Eynsham Hall last year. The en-suit bathroom in the hotel I have been thinking about since, pale green shades, with traditional white bathroom suit, roll top bath and a splash of industrial lighting. I loved it. I would love to have this style in our new bathroom. At the very least we would like a patterned tiled floor, with some industrial lighting.
Our daughter bedroom
Our daughter has just turned 5, as like almost all little girls she has a love of unicorns and mermaids, so she is wanting something that has space for her collection. I was thinking pale green, baby pink and then adding flashes of unicorns throughout. I have found most lovely unicorn night lights and even some LED string lights that we can add to her room. She will be in love.
Our son’s bedroom
Our son is almost 10, how that happened I have no idea. For his new bedroom I would love him to have something that will grow with him into the teenage years. So I am thinking grey, white and navy with star theme. Not little boy room starts but big bold stars, on the walls and then using the current trend of astronomy designs for the lighting. I want to design him a room that he will love and so will his friends.
For our bedroom, I am hoping for a luxurious feel, with pale grey walls, crisp white bedding and then blush velvet lampshades and a chair sat in the corner. I love vintage furniture so I am hoping to source a dressing table and mirror set to finish the room off. My friends daughter is very talented at watercolour and she painted me a water bouquet that is full of colour that I want to hang in the bedroom and it will give us a base to work with.
I’m sure that when we find our forever home my ideas will change numerous times, but for now this will give you an insight into what styles I am thinking about.
