You may have noticed that the time for minimalism and neutral colours is over. There has been a massive switch towards being adventurous with home interiors.
You can achieve this by; choosing bold colours in your home decor, be it paint or a splash of colour with cushions or throws, and choosing furniture with more organic shapes. Keep reading to find out more ways that you can create a unique and on-trend interior. Who needs a holiday when you can make your home your happy place?!
If you're wanting to make a big statement, choosing rounded sofas and/or tub chairs in a bright solid colour will achieve this. A great fabric to add luxury to a sofa is velvet, but velvet isn't always the best option when you have young children.
A more carefree option that's child-friendly as well as pocket-friendly, would be adding bold cushions to your existing sofa, either a solid colour or a bold graphic print. Add a throw or take it a step further and make a feature wall in your lounge. The great thing with a lick of paint or a feature wall of wallpaper is they can be changed out easily if you decide the look isn't working anymore or there's a new trend you wish to add to your home.
It's proven that colour can change your mood and the way space is perceived, either making a space larger or smaller or making you feel cold or hungry. Creating a bold dark bathroom can create an indulgent spa-like atmosphere, and who doesn't want a spa at home?
Lighter coloured floors can give a room a more spacious airy look and feel. There are so many options out there from vinyl to bamboo and real wood. If you choose a light oak or birch you can create this spacious look in your home.
This trend is about throwing out the rule book and mixing colours, patterns and textures. Make your space what you like. Express yourself through artwork on the walls, unique pieces and most of all have fun with it!
A great small place with high impact is in your kitchen's splash back, add a bold colour or a patterned tile or even a mural. Your options are endless.
Another massive trend of 2019 and a great way to add colour to any room is plants. They're great in homes that don't have a lot of outdoor space for gardens or for someone who wants an 'indoor jungle'. If you're worried that you don't have a green thumb, there are lots of plants that 'thrive on neglect' or there are lots of great realistic fake plants around.
Plants that add an instant impact are; Monstera (Swiss Cheese Plant), Fiddle Leaf Fig, Ficus Elastica (Rubber Plant) and Strelitzia reginae (Bird of Paradise).
