It’s (somehow) still the first month of the year and we’re thinking about what lies ahead. We’ve been looking at a range of different architectural and interior designers predictions for what will be big in 2019. We’ve selected some of the design trends we think will take over this year and looking at what we like, love and what is making a big come-back.

One of the trends that is predicted across nearly every platform we’ve found is for Forest/Hunter Greens. It’s a bold statement, an unmissable and very present colour for any room. It seems like dark colours are in for kitchens and for accents in the bathroom (ie. taps, towel rails, toothbrush holders) and many designers are speculating that the colour of the year ‘Nightwatch Green’ is the new alternative to matt black.

The Pantone Colour of the Year 2019 ‘Living Coral’ is making waves across interior design blogs. The warm, retro colour comes with the vintage trend of art deco curves, scallops and scales revival. The sixties style resurgence comes full swing with mermaid tiles, velvet and swooshing tassels and fringing. We’re not sure if we’re ready for this glamour overload!

Another warm, soft colour palette that made an impression last year and looks like its here to stay is the ‘Millennial Pink’. The blush is back, bringing luxury to comfortable and cosy hues alongside dusty pinks and pale blues – the perfect accompaniment to those rose golds, brass and copper additions.

The only way is up with this next prediction – sensational statement ceilings! This is a nod to the roaring twenties, which is somehow nearly a century ago… The fifth wall is going to be highlighted – lacquered, wallpapered – and made a focal point of the room. This trend is all about visual impact and we must admit we’re curious to see how this one presents itself or if it might be one of those trends we wish had never happened!

One things for sure, biophilia and raw, natural materials are set to stick around with concrete and other stones such as agate appearing in many design schemes. Its unsurprising these natural elements have such an appeal as they connect us to our primal instincts, with the additional benefit of the sustainable and eco-friendly aspects.

We’ve collected some of our favourite images relating to these predictions; enjoy!
