Last year was a great year for interior design. We saw a great mix of tones, feels and styles with the rise of terracotta, upholstered bedheads and relaxation nooks. We felt the moodiness of dark wood and emerald green and got experimental with eclectic interiors. But what is going to make it big in 2018? We have put together our annual home design trends so that you can stay ahead of the crowd and have your home looking fresh and fabulous this year!
Move over dark and regal colours and make way for a softer palette. Pastels are back with a big focus on lavender this year. Don’t forget to think about the textures they appear on. We are talking about linen and other raw and natural fabrics. It’s all about adding a subtle level of luxury to your home.
Bigger the sink the better
Have you ever gone to wash a lovely platter and it not fit in your sink? Well this design trend is practical and stylish. We are talking big sinks! Not only do they make your life easier but they also make your home look grandeur and lavish. Don’t just think farmhouse sinks. Go up a level and make it elegant.
Tiles you can touch
Tiles have expanded beyond their basic function. It’s not only about the look but about how they feel. We are predicting that 2018 is going to see a real creative spin on the touch and feel of the tiles that are used in homes. If you can run your hand along it and feel the opulence then you have made the right decision. This look will help you stand out and have a feel to the room that is more than meets the eye.
No, we don’t mean the colour. With a big focus on the environment it is important to show the world that you are giving back. And don’t worry, you sow what you reap. If you are thinking that going green is just out of your budget take into consideration the effect it will have on your long term saving goals. Installing solar panels now may be a big upfront cost but down the track you will be making the money back on electricity fees. And really, can you put a price on the environment? There are lots of things that you can do to make a difference. Maybe you want to start off small and plant more trees in your garden, go ahead! Every little bit counts. It is important to show that you are styling your home with the future in mind.
