We don’t know about you, but we’re welcoming 2019 with open arms – and so are our homes..

We can’t wait to spruce up our interiors to start the new year fresh. Whether you’re updating your decor scheme or taking on a complete makeover, these are the decor trends we think are going to be huge in 2019.

Colour of the year

And the Pantone colour of the year is, *drum roll*, Living Coral. So, move over Millennial Pink, there’s a new hue in town and it shouts happiness. Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animating and life-affirming coral hue, with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge”.

This new colour is already popping up all around us, from the runway, to beauty products and interior decor and furnishings. So if you’re looking for a new pop of colour to add to your home in 2019, try this shade.

Flexible furniture

Small space living is becoming more and more popular and the trend goes hand-in-hand with urbanisation. Smaller homes mean smaller furnishings, but consumers aren’t satisfied with second-rate replicas.

There’s a major need for smart furnishings that are as useful as they are stylish. Think furniture that can be manipulated to work in challenging and smaller spaces, that will at the same time look great in your home.

Boho is in!

Boho is definitely back (not that we’re sure it ever really left), and we couldn’t be more excited. Let’s be honest, all of us love a touch of bohemian decor. What’s more, it’s a super easy style to add to your home, as Boho furnishings and decor items match with pretty much any style.

Go green

This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning eco-friendly, sustainable products. Think live plant walls and recycled furniture. Supporting local is also right on trend (and always should be for that matter), but the more artisanal and bespoke an item is, the better.

Patterns and prints

From geometric to ethnic and tribal, patterns and prints are here to stay. They add instant warmth and interest to a room, whether you go all out or simply add a few touches by incorporating scatters, fabrics and more.

Bold backsplashes

Your kitchen is the heart of your home and should be treated as such. Backsplashes shouldn’t be forgotten when decorating your space, and the bolder the better!

Copper

Rose gold is so, *clears throat*, 2018. Copper is the new go-to metallic and you’ll be seeing a lot more of it.

Florals

We love a floral print as much as the next person and couldn’t be happier that floral fabrics and wallpapers are so very on trend in 2019. Whether you like a softer look or bold prints, there’s something for every taste when it comes to florals.
