5 WAYS TO MIX UP YOUR INTERIOR STYLE FOR 2019
Each New Year brings with it an opportunity to cleanse and re-boot various aspects of your life. Once you have set your own, personal resolutions, you might look towards your home to see if any updates or improvements could be made there, too.
If you feel that your interior style could benefit from a little shake-up, then hopefully this article will arm you with some ideas to make the most of the new 2019 interior trends.
Less is More
If there is one rule you adopt this year, make it this. We all love to bring in beautiful pieces to our homes, but with the objective of de-cluttering, try to ensure that these pieces are all practical as well as lovely. Everything you invest in should have a purpose and should benefit you or your family in some way.
Explore with Nature
Biophilic design is an architectural approach that aims to connect homes closer to nature in order to provide the inhabitants with a relaxing and healthy environment. Using natural materials such as wood, stone and bamboo can help to bring the outdoors inside as well as create a calming effect. Daylight is also a really important factor here, so look at ways to bring in more natural sunlight to your home with Venetian blinds, skylights or French doors.
This year there is a huge focus on interior products that are handmade and crafted from sustainable materials like jute, rice paper and clay. These items give a raw, natural and real feel and help to create an atmosphere that is personalised and unique to you. Choose individual pieces that you love and don’t be afraid to mix and match different textures and materials in a room.
Introduce Soft Tones
Colours such as blush pink, soft gold and dusty grey are all colours that are set to be favoured in 2019. These colours can be especially flattering in the bedroom, where feminine tones are usually most popular. Choosing a new bedroom wardrobe can dramatically alter the atmosphere of the room and help to create a feature point. The Cotswold Company offer a range of rustic wardrobes, painted in delightful colours such as Chantilly White and Chambery Grey, which would compliment a bedroom decorated in soft, muted tones.
Focus on the walls
Wall art is a trend that will continue to flourish in 2019. Whether you are a fan of traditional floral print or are looking for a more modern, abstract approach, explore wallpaper designs to create a statement on a focal wall i.e. at the top of the staircase or behind the sofa in the lounge. Layering also continues to be popular, so add wall lamps, picture collages and large mirrors to walls in order to increase warmth and personality in a room.
