Our favourite interior trends forSpring/Summer 18/19

Incoming from Milan: it’s time to redecorate! As catwalk and interior design trends collide, we bring you our trend highlights for Spring Summer 18/19. Lust over these ideas…

Colour Trends

Make a personalised statement with colour. We see rich teal as fusion between green and blue, and violet that’s more purple than pink. Orange will be subdued and ‘burned’ this season along with and mellow, sunny yellow. Mix these bright pops with other tonal neutrals such as navy blue, brown or grey.

Art Deco

This Instagram-worthy trend takes shape in hints of metal and warm lighting. Art deco design can cross boundaries from bedroom to bathroom, kitchen and lounge areas. Pantone® also predicts golds and matte black to be monumental. Think gold frame coffee tables, pendant lighting and curved back plush couches. Then take it up a notch with your own bar cart for 1920s style entertaining. You’ll be saying “old sport” in no time.

Multifunctionality

The 2018/19 season is all about multipurpose design, so streamline your home with a ‘less is more’ approach. Choose compact, dual purpose appliances and furniture that can be easily maneuvered to ensure your space is as dynamic as possible. This is complimented by the unofficial STAINMASTER® ‘buy less, choose well’ ethos. Our carpet is stain resistant, sun resistant and timeless so you can enjoy your flooring for years to come.

Consciously Sustainable

Trend forecasts make a point of sustainably produced interiors. It’s everything from your pillowcases to wooden tables, re-upholstered headboards and tapestries. Add a visually sustainable layer with light dimmers and air detoxifying house plants. Where possible, reduce, reuse and recycle. Then you can afford to spend on big ticket items that will last.
