The year is in full swing which means it’s out with the old and in with the new for trendsetters. We’ve put together some of the 2019 décor trends we think are only going to get bigger as the year goes on.
And remember, you don’t have to be a fan of every. single. trend. Just borrow from the trends that work for you, your space and your existing style.
So, here are seven 2019 décor trends that we recommend you take special note of this year…
The Pantone Colour Institute trends
The Pantone Colour Institute, the consultancy behind the Colour of the Year, has highlighted two palettes for décor in 2019: ‘Classico’ and ‘Cravings’. The ‘Cravings’ palette includes all ranges of passionate colours – spicy reds, sweet flamingo oranges and rich purples. While the ‘Classico’ boasts more of a minimalist feel with its forever fashionable swan whites, burgundy reds and caviar black hues.

And on that note, invest in furniture neutral colours
While colours will never go out of fashion, your essential furniture colour scheme should live within the neutral spectrum. This way, your furniture will still sit pretty even if your colour preferences and trends change over time.
Cover up the walls
Keep up with the latest décor craze by incorporating colour and texture into your home with gradient wallpapers. It conveniently allows you to gradually blend two colour schemes perfectly into a room. The best part is that you can rip it off and re-do it next year or when you so fancy.
Go matte with your blacks
Chic matte black is coming onto the 2019 décor scene with a bang. Imagine a matte black feature wall in your bathroom, or bring in the trend with matte black accents like kitchen taps and decorative homeware. Stylish and sophisticated!
Go big with art
Pack away your polite pieces of art and start investing in big, bold statement art pieces that will cover up larger sections of the wall – choose between a big canvas or a custom wallpaper.

Mix and match
Don’t shy away from combining different textures in your living spaces. This year it’s all about using wool, leather, fringe, natural woods and metallic to bring a room to life. Be bold and playful in your approach.
