Much like the fashion and technology industries, the world of interiors is ever changing. From seasonal shifts to fashionable forecasts with the start of the new year, staying abreast of what’s hot in interiors is no mean feat. However, upping your interiors game doesn’t have to be difficult. Whether you want to give your home a complete revamp, or make some subtle changes that will breath a new lease of life into your boudoir, read on for the top 3 interior design trends and how you can implement them in your home.
- Pastels make way for earthy hues
If 2017 was the year of pastels – thanks, in large part to the rise of Instagram and its many and soft-hued pastel-focused accounts – 2018 saw the rise of earthier tones. Pastel pinks replaced with peachier tones, and you can expect to see everything from terracotta oranges to rusty reds become a sure-fire staple this year. Many will seek inspiration from the Australian outback, opting for everything from dusty blues to burnt oranges when it comes to their interior styling. And while the earthy colours may at first seem like a less obvious choice when it comes to styling your home, incorporating a few interior ideas – from throw cushions to a statement wall – alongside a staple sage green plant, is an effective yet subtle way to shift your interiors towards this trend.
- Luxury textures take centre stage
An easy and inexpensive way to add an essence of opulence to your home, is by taking inspiration from the latest trend in textures. Think luxurious silks and velvets in jewel like hues, from ruby reds to emerald and sapphire greens. Introduce the new textures in your bedroom and living areas with new bedding, throws and scatter cushions. To avoid any overkill of this key 2018 trend, try layering contrasting textures – such as natural linens with velvets and silks, and complement the indulgent tones with natural and nude surroundings.
3. Bathrooms look to spas for inspiration
Over the past few years, our bathrooms have moved away from being practical rooms, to places of sanctuary and refuge, and 2018 will see a further shift towards a spa-like oasis in the home. If your bathroom needs a complete overhaul, try introducing natural timber floors and stone furnishings, while if you simply want to make a few interior updates, opt for a Scandi-inspired mirror, some sleek shelving units or a collection of rattan storage solutions for that spa-like and serene feel in the comfort of your own home.
