Definitely a trend I can get on board with! As this has always been the goal for our interiors. Simple is beautiful, calming and easy to achieve. Read about my tips for doing minimal the right way by clicking HERE.

Let’s all strive for a sense of purpose behind our purchases this year!

Believe it or not, this chaotic design trend has in fact been a trend! And although I agree, the eclectic look keeps things fun and exciting, it doesn’t allow a place to give your eyes a rest.

From what we are seeing, 2019 is shaping out to be a year of reduction and purpose in our selections. So let’s all say goodbye to eclectic clutter!

Biophilia: the human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature. Meaning, this trend is calling for the use of more organic materials! Warm wood tones, natural stones, neutral color palettes, and lots of natural light.

We’re loving this approach to be more connecting to our surroundings!

OUT: ALL WHITE EVERYTHING

If this wasn’t a trend in a half, I don’t know what was! The all-white space has flooded the world of interiors in the past couple years. Which, don’t get me wrong. I love the look of a clean + crisp space! But it’s all about balance here. Every white wall and cabinet calls for another element of warmth to even it out.

2019 is ditching this cool and sterile look.

In reference to the above, this does not mean all white. There are plenty of other neutral colors that fit in this category. Including any color from off-white to griege, greys and blacks, soft greens and blues, etc. Warm finishes paired with neutral pigments can instantly update a tired room.

Not to mention, its a far more timeless look than any hot and trending color will ever be.

Although jewel tones we’re predicted to be 2018’s hottest trending colors, they aren’t predicted to last any longer in this new year. Bright colors and funky patterns may be trendy for a time, but we always see them die out again soon after the craze.

Looking for a timeless home? Design that will last? Neutral is the way to go.

We have seen a lot of affordable artwork hit the market this past year. But this new year is calling for less downloadable wall decor and more investments. In its place, the stronger use of colors, patterns, sceneries and portraits. Not to mention, bigger. Nothing will add more drama to a space than a large-scale, quality painting.

OUT: SCANDINAVIAN ARTWORK

The dominance of Scandinavian artwork, is predicted to be on its way out this year. Although affordable, the primary use of black and white colors and simple design strokes, is finally boring consumers. The clean edges and uniformity of these ultra-minimal designs are making way for more organic shapes and bolder colors.

Infusion of personality into a space is the direction design is headed this year!

IN: SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS + FURNISHINGS

Handmade items using sustainable materials like jute, wool, clay and terra-cotta are predicted to sweep the world of interiors this year. Using these kinds of elements in the home really ground your design and allow us to feel more in touch with nature. We can’t wait to get creative with the use of these materials in our upcoming furnishing projects!

I’m not going to lie, this is a trend I can’t wait to kiss goodbye! Because nothing kills a trend more than overkill does. And this is one we have seen overdone for a few years running. And like mentioned above, 2019 will be less about handmade loud appearances and more about sustainable materials.

When it comes to styling and decor, we’re seeing a lot more of the following: sculptures, figurines, vintage collections and quirky finds artfully and effortlessly presented. With the rapid growth of open shelves and display cabinets, it seems we are getting more artful with our displays.

Less trinkets, cheap ceramics, faux potted plants and more thoughtful finds in 2019!

OUT: FIBER ART

Also a trend I can’t wait to see take a rest in 2019. The use of fiber art, including macrame wall hangings, everywhere. I love a good weave as much as the next person, but I’m afraid we’ve have hit a saturation point.

So let’s mix it up! There are plenty of other modern wall decor options to give a try this year.

IN: LARGE INDOOR POTTED TREES

In the world of interiors this year we’ve seeing less clusters of small potted plants and more large potted trees in main areas of the home. We love the look of this Triange Ficus, as pictured above. Other great options include: Olive trees, African Candelabra, New Zealand Laurel and Rubber Plant. These are the plants that will grow tall, fill up vertical space in the room and make a statement.

Again, investing in bigger and better not smaller and more cluttered.

OUT: THE PLANT HOARDER’S HOUSE

This trend of having a curated collection of indoor potted greens has also seen its time through. Small planted fiddle figs, palm leaves, cacti and succulents are simply not the charm this year is going for. Although the look of plants in a home can make for an elevated and earthy home design, we’ve neared upon more timeless and beautiful options, as noted above.

So there you have it! Seven predicted trends that we can’t wait to see through this upcoming year. Happy updating!
