2018 is in full swing and the interior trends that are big this year are now coming to the fore. Below, we feature some of the styles that homeowners are going crazy for this year:
Dark wood furniture and door sets are back in fashion in a big way. Pale bleached woods that have been popular with flat-pack furniture companies are now being replaced by dark grains as the resurgence in retro continues to gather momentum.
Textures and the feel of materials are also a big craze at the moment. Hand-made items which feel slightly different to the mass made and appliqué detailing are the new choice of many.
Following the resurgence last year of tropical prints on furniture, plates, rugs and more, the trend looks set to continue in 2018 as people cash in on people looking to bring warmer climates into their own home. Travel souvenirs, such as large bowls, wooden statues and canvas paintings are also being used as focal pieces.
A Rustic Look
The love for all things rustic has continued into 2018. The main parts of this look remain weathered woods, shabby chic furniture and the use of other natural materials such as shells and driftwood. Feature pieces you can use to create a rustic tone include large jugs with flowers, mismatched vases and clay pots painted natural colours.
Blocks of Colour
Walls using just one colour are being reinvented in 2018, with the addition of stripes, shapes and stencils creating separate sections of colour instead. This new trend is being paired with simple furniture which complements the walls of the room rather than trying to compete with them.
