Lots of interior designers have started making their 2019 interior trends predictions based on what worked and what didn’t in 2018. We too have witnessed lots of stunning (and not-so-stunning) home decor ideas including millennial pinks, faux animal prints and more.
With a new year comes new trends to get involved with. Though lots of them have already been spotted in 2018, geometric interiors, textured tiles and luxurious, colourful shades will swoop onto the scene for 2019, so here’s how to make them look great:
1. Geometric Interiors
Before geometric interiors got their name, we saw elements of the style in retro prints back in the 1970s. Oranges, browns and yellows were used to create striking patterns that really captivated homes, making them a fun, energetic space consisting of many shapes: semi-circles, hexagons, straight lines, flower-inspired shapes and more.
Good to know: If you perform a search for “retro patterns” on sites like Pinterest, you’ll see just what we mean...
Since then, designers have pushed past the limitations of the warm, retro colour palette to create the geometric styles we know today: soft patterns with contemporary colours including pastels and metallics.
For example, by incorporating soft pastel pinks, creams and whites, you can create a super relaxing place to retreat which is particularly great in a bedroom, without falling into the trap of creating a basic, boring room.
Plus, for messy homeowners, the real beauty of a contemporary, geometric style is that it’s super easy to achieve a clean-cut look. The straight lines and sharp edges whether they’re added through wallpaper, tiles or smaller home furnishings, can make any space look neat and tidy.
Recommended products: To achieve a look similar to the above, you can include our Serene wall tile in the shade Oat Decor. Alternatively, use our Latte Hexagonal tiles.
With so many geometric shapes out there, you can create a completely unique space that suits your personality and complements any house style or size.
For those wanting a more daring, dramatic look, you can always add in a pop of colour or add the patterns to places you wouldn’t expect. For example, you could opt for a bright orange triangular rug or patterned carpet, gold and blue hexagonal kitchen splashback or rainbow striped tabletops.
The real key to mastering this look is to be creative. See below some ways to make the most of bold, geometric style from our collection of Pinterest images.
Regardless of whether you go bold or stick to the subtle shades, the geometric interior trend is completely versatile, giving your home a timeless, elegant feel. How you style it really depends on your personal taste - choose freely!
2. Bold, Accent Colours
The next interior trend we expect to see is bold colours used as accents. The pop of colour is commonly juxtaposed by a clean white, a deep navy or similar, covering the majority of the room to create a strong yet stylish contrast to your chosen colour.
Some bold colours that we suggest using are pale yellows, burnt oranges, emerald greens and pretty pinks. All of which are great, mood-boosting colours. One colour that has particularly stood out is the vibrant yet mellow, coral shade, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral that’s been selected as 2019 Colour of the Year.
Colour is an equalising lens through which we experience our natural and digital realities and this is particularly true for Living Coral.
With consumers craving human interaction and social connection, the humanising and heartening qualities displayed by the convivial PANTONE Living Coral hit a responsive chord. - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of PANTONE
By incorporating coral into your home as your accent colour, you can create a high-end, modern feel that screams creativity, mesmerising both the eyes and mind. Use it as a statement wall in a kitchen, a bright armchair in a study, cushions on a sofa or similar.
3. Textured Tiles
We’ve seen lots of textures in forms of faux fur, noodle-style cushions, shiny, metallic surfaces and of course, glitter wallpaper throughout 2018. However, something that we expect to grow even bigger in 2019 is textured tiles.
One of the most commonly used descriptions by interior designers is “depth and dimension”. This refers to a room looking full of character, having a range of sizes, patterns and fabrics and plenty of layers in terms of furnishings. This whole concept of having depth and dimension is effortlessly portrayed through clever use of textured tiles.
Textured tiles have been around for a while and so, since their birth many variations of them have evolved. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can opt for tiles that make use of natural materials such as raised wood-effect or stone-effect tiles, or you could stick with the geometric theme and go for raised lines, dotty or hexagonal tiles.
With there being such an abundance of designs, the opportunities are endless. See below some of the top textured tiles found on Pinterest:
New to the Tile Giant range, we have recently released new with glossy, textured tiles that incorporate geometric style through hexagonal patterning: our Trinity and Serene ceramic wall tiles.
Our Serene tiles allow you to bring colour, texture and a rich, translucent glaze to your wall space, making them a perfect addition to brighten up a kitchen or bathroom space. They’re available in a range of shades from subtle variations to brighter, vibrant tones - see below.
The raised, hexagonal patterning makes these really stand out and when complemented with the identical, smooth and non-patterned tile that’s also in the Serene range, they create a really nice aesthetic for your wall. Mix and match between the two or you can even alternate between colours to get that bold, bespoke look.
With our range of Serene tiles, you can easily incorporate all three interior design trends into your home through one easy to apply, small format tile.
