New trends in home Interior Design in 2019
Big, bold plants
One trend that will be at the forefront of home interior design in 2019 is big, bold plants. A dragon tree, a rubber tree or any kind of palm tree make eye-catching statements anywhere in a home. You can flank your sofa with one on each side or situate one in any corner. The bigger, the better here.
Incorporating plant life into your decor is a bit different than taking on other 2019 interior design trends. Here, instead of relying purely on aesthetics, you’ll want to allow the plant’s care-and-keeping instructions to dictate its placement in your home. Be sure to check how much sunlight and water a plant needs before purchasing it to ensure that whichever plants you end up using will flourish in their ideal environment.
In 2019, we’ll start to see people taking advantage of the fifth wall – the ceiling has been ignored for too long! From wallpaper to mouldings and daring paint colours, the ceiling will be the place that people start taking chances and creating a ‘wow moment’ in their spaces.
Consider this look for spaces that you want to feel intimate, especially bedrooms and formal dining spaces. Here, you’ll want to keep the 10-30-60 rule at the forefront of your mind. Either continue to the ceiling with your base colour, which covers 60 per cent of the room, or makes a strong statement by using your accent colour – the last 10 per cent – to add a pop of visual interest.
