They also suggest decorating with lots of live greenery throughout the home. “Use in clusters, mixed containers in heights and sizes. We particularly like containers with matte finishes or raw finishes like concrete. Small trees and plants give shape and texture and add life to a room. Crowd a front window with them or use them in large groups rather than in single plants dotted around.”
This living room from Swoon Worthy Blog is another gorgeous example of how to embrace art deco without completely redesigning a space. The gold starburst mirror above the mantle and the velvet mustard yellow chair channel the roaring twenties while still feeling modern and new.
Leather couches and chairs are nothing new—but according to Bria Hammel of Bria Hammel Interiors, we should expect to see more leather accents being used in unexpected places.
She added, “Designing authentic biophilic settings that don’t trip our intuitive sensors with false substitutes is important especially in today’s technology-fueled world, where we increasingly crave a connection back to human-centric and natural elements.”
Award winning British interior designer Katharine Pooley, however, foresees a fresher palate when it comes to metallics, with “a focus on polished nickel and silver/industrial finishes.”
Aurore Martial of Domus Venus loves textured walls for 2019. “They add more contrast, and having two different materials is a lot more appealing, even if you stay in the same tones.”
“2019 will leave behind minimalism and instead pay homage to the more-is-more maximalism movement,” says Hepfer. “It brings me great joy when my clients are on board with our design journey, taking risks and trusting the creative path. In the end, these spaces are unique, fabulous and timeless, created just for them.”
Deep and rich a new blue-green trend is appearing at the scene. With more sophisticated emanation and brighter presence than its pastel counterparts, the full-blooded blue-green trend is the next accent. Infusing the homes with calming, grounded vibes those natural tones will quietly enhance the virtually in any premise.
Black is timeless and traditional, but one of 2019’s interior design trends will definitely involve more navy elements at home. Danielle Walish, interior and furniture designer for The Inside, expects to see “navy used in fresh and modern ways—or in other words, not your grandma’s navy. Of course, navy always shines in a classic cabana stripe, but I’m excited to pair it with mint green and pinks.”
When designing a space this year, don’t be afraid to mix what may be considered masculine elements (such as leather) with feminine touches to bring more variety to your decor.
“The all-white kitchen has been in full force the past couple of years and, as such, we’ve been slowly adding color back in,” says designer Tracy Lynn. “Black kitchens are proving to be popular and help impart a sleek, rich feel and modern ambiance.”

“The owner of this 1906 Victorian wanted to highlight as much of the home’s original charm as possible. One of the ways we achieved this was by incorporating classic, timeless materials such as this Carrara marble coffee table by Holly Hunt. The marble surface was a perfect complement to the original fireplace, replete with original tile in soft pink and green tones — some of the client’s favorite colors. Marble also provides a refreshing visual balance to the warm wood tones in the custom bookshelves, the honeyed leather in the ottomans and the rich olive green velvet on the custom sofa.” — Jaclyn Christensen, IDF StudioChristopher Stark

Distinguished by bold color accents on the backdrop of minimalist whiteness, the modular segments host kitchen zone and bedroom space, both with strong artistic and sculptural presence. The incorporation of fold-away furniture in the contemporary design compositions is not only a space-saving mechanism, but it is also an entertaining and functional addition to any dynamic urban dwelling.

Everyone’s favourite Instagram flat-lay background doesn’t seem to be going anywhere yet.
The key design factors at play are bold colors in retro tones: custom made joinery, an array of eccentric materials and of course the intriguing system of black metal frames that runs throughout the apartment, breaks the vertical volumes and support the lighting fixtures. Vintage pieces of furniture: some previously owned, some custom made by the architects (like kitchen brass laminate and lacquered wood cabinets) compose an ambiance of unique charm and undoubted value. Trendy materials: like the gorgeous terrazzo flooring, the colored glass partitions, and metal lattices only enhance the strong visual impact of this complicated and stylish interior.

Donna Mondi, who is the President of Donna Mondi Interior Design predicts that street art will be coming home. She explained, “There’s something about the grittiness that I find so appealing. In 2019, what DMID believes will stand true, is blending graffiti with something more feminine and traditional, which makes it all the more exciting and is easy to incorporate into many different design styles. This graffiti Shakespeare bust suddenly transforms into an edgy statement piece when tagged with graffiti art by London based Jimmie Martin.”
The Dutch company Aectual has developed innovative technology for 3D printing floors using recycled or bio-plastic and huge robotic 3D printers to create the framework of the floors, which are then filled with different terrazzo mixtures. This technique allows an endless variety of colors, shapes, and patterns – complete customization for your floors. According to the designers, the resulting floors are high quality and wear-resistant. Also, thanks to the use of recycled and environmentally friendly materials, the floors are intended to create little or no waste.
Paint is also a budget-friendly option. “You really get a wow effect at a fraction of the cost of a statement piece, and it fills the whole room, so the rest can be more neutral. The walls will make the room.”
White kitchens have been all the rage for a while now, but this year expect to see darker cabinetry make a comeback.
In today’s life composing a living ambiance that uses not only trendy and aesthetic materials but also ones that can be recycled and used repeatedly is not just a preference, but it’s also becoming a responsibility. So without contradicting the two human desires – the aspiration for artistic, luxurious and stylish expression and the admiration towards nature and organic tactile sensations, we will introduce you the upcoming trends in movable and transforming furniture compositions, recyclable and natural materials and of course the small urban spaces design ideas with their multifunctional and smart forms. Or, in other words, everything that keeps the high artistic standards in harmonious interaction with nature.
Gold, brass, silver, bronze and rose gold have been popular for a while, and they’re not going anywhere soon.
“Curved sofas solve many ‘age old design dilemmas.’ First, you never have to look at the flat ugly back of a sofa again. Second, conversation in the area is now oriented where everyone seated on the sofa can see each other instead of the side of each other’s heads! Third, the organic curve adds harmony and order to the room instead of just a flat-lined sofa. The Victorian era was the best illustration of curved sofas. During that time women couldn’t move easily in their dresses, so curved sofas added comfort to the living room conversations. We chose a curved sofa for this room since it is a room of social gathering with bar cabinets flanking each side of a wood-burning fireplace. The design of the room draws you into it… and makes you never want to leave!” — Emily Mackie, Inspired InteriorsCourtsey of Inspired Interiors
“Often, people find it comforting to be surrounded by neutrals. Layering in texture, colors found in nature, simple shapes and metal finishes can elevate a standard neutral palette to create a more modern, neutral space.” — Tiffany Leblanc of LeBlanc Design, LLCCourtesy of LeBlanc Design, LLC
Murals are another popular trend. “I love murals because in a minimalist room it will draw the attention and become the focus piece.”
“Our take on a sophisticated TV hangout area for the younger members of the family. We wanted to reference the rich aesthetics of a London private club, with a strong dose of still prevalent fashion for all things midcentury. Visual interest comes from an extensive layering of patterns, accent colors and cultural references, in a mix of art and accessories, that feed into the current trend of maximalism.” —Hubert Zandberg InteriorsSimon Upton
To prepare for a new year of design trends, we spoke to home decor experts and asked them what to expect—and what they’re most excited about in 2019.
According to Breegan Jane, matte black fixtures will continue to trend. She elaborated, “Talking to plumbing companies, they say they are [expanding their lines]. This got me thinking matte black everything is in right now.”
“The geometric pattern is always trendy as you can use it in either a modern or a classic way. It’s classic because it originates from ancient roman marble floors, so it’s perfect for any home surrounded by antiques and velvet curtains. It can be also very 20th century — because it reminds us the Art Deco 1920s skyscraper interiors, full of geometric marbles and brass sufaces. But it’s also modern if you leave it alone, as unique decoration, without any atrezzo around, maybe just with painted white walls and clean white stone floors —that’s it. It’s young, it’s fresh, it’s sophisticated, but always depending on the soul you want to add to your space.” — Lorenzo CastilloCourtesy of Lorenzo Castillo
Interior Designer Lisa Gilmore says the shift away from grey tones will mean more color saturation. “For a long time people have been in this grey phase While it’s very open airy and feels good, people are starting to turn to colors to pull different feelings and emotions. We are seeing people want to be energized, and kind of wrapped in color.”
The small 34-square-meter studio apartment appears spacious, luminous and serine thanks to the bright architectural arrangement of sliding wooden screens, the powerful undulated shape of the ceiling above the cave-like bedroom premise and the elegant color choices and minimalist furniture compositions. The fish-bone pattern of the screens in combination with the irregular cube of the room and the dominating oblong shapes accentuated throughout the premises creates a dynamic contemporary expression for the whole design.
This environmentally-friendly outdoor seating composition for ECO-oh! is created by Studio Segers. The designers had figured out a way to turn household plastic waste, like yogurt cups, butter tubs, and plastic bags, into a flexible, durable and artistic solution for outdoor furniture.
We have prepared for you three iconic examples of contemporary furniture creations that demonstrate multi-functionality, flexibility and artistic reconstruction of ethnic- inspirations with innovative materials. All of these cases possess the flexible and innovative features necessary for their implementation in small spaces and dynamic lifestyle.
Another great example of this look is using one color monochromatically. Designer David Stark explained, “Going monochromatic is in! Deep, rich monochromatic rooms can be the opposite of dark. Their luminescent hues are decidedly sexy.”
The expressive modular H-bench features two components with and without backrests, that connect in a variety of ways, resulting in endless configurations. You can create a stool, chair, bench, sofa, or any combination as small or as large as you want – enjoy, being the co-creator of your outdoor space!
Art deco design is all about embracing geometric designs, manmade materials (like metals) and bold colors. Though art deco reached its peak in the 1920s and 30s, we expect to see a big resurgence in 2019. As we leave behind minimalism, art deco is the perfect way to add more textures and visual interest to your space.
Searching for a balance between openness and enclosure, entwining herringbone pattern on the pavements and the organic and linear feel of the wooden structures the architects achieve an extraordinary richness of tone, texture, and depth of perception, only with these two basic materials.
The modernistic and bright expression of these modular furniture structures belongs to the Portuguese practice Waataa. They added the two brightly colored modules to this urban apartment design arrangement to help define specific areas within the open-plan space. Another ingenious design solution: integrated into the modules and walls fold-out furniture pieces further enhance the saving of space approach and the clean, minimalist expression of the design.
“This client loves the outdoors and really wanted a comfortable living space that felt equally organic and refined. The walls are horse hair woven in shades of camel, olive green and tan surrounding a vintage inspired chair in a golden tan silk velvet and olive leather welt. The palette is completely derived from nature, bringing the outside in giving a presence to eclectic objects and artwork in the space.” — Ashli MizellCourtesy of Ashli Mizell
And finely for the series of flexible furniture creations the ‘Yemenite Totem – an artistic expression of creative functionalism inspired by the ethnic beauty of the Jewish-Yemenis culture.
Lotta Lundaas, who is the CEO & Founder of Norse Interiors, explained earth tones are going to dominate next year. “When it comes to colors, the gray monochrome trend is on the way out and instead we’ll see all versions of sand and earthier colors like ochre, burnt gold, and terracotta.”
Green will be everywhere in 2019. Michael Schoeller and Joanna Darling of SCHOELLER + DARLING DESIGN are particularly touting green upholstery “From grass green to more mixed teals.”

According to Angie Lee of FXCollaborative, biophilia will be a big trend this year. “Biophilia is a design driver that engages the end user by connecting them to primal instincts about the relationship between humans and nature. When done properly, we are calmed by the sight of greenery in the form of live plants and living walls, the sight, and sound of water, access to views of natural settings, and tactile organic materials such as wood and stone.”
The trend for luxury and rich expression is obvious when it comes to the soft sitting arrangements – sofas, armchairs, and ottomans – they are all big, soft, enveloping the body into velvet and rounded shapes. The designers usually combine them with marble cladding and surfaces, glass structures and furniture and aristocratic colored-metals: brass, copper, silver or golden shine.
Living Coral was announced as the Color Of The Year for 2019. This fun, bright hue can be used in many ways according to Jennifer Matthews, who is the Co-Founder and Creative Director at Tempaper. “I love how optimistic this color is for interiors. Beyond the accent wall, it is easy to infuse Living Coral into a space with accessories such as lampshades, wall art, pillows, and throws. You can even take this a step further by integrating a colorful area rug to give the room dimension from the ground up.” Tempaper has several wall coverings infused with the color including Flora, Pom Pom, and Flamingos.
As we have shared with you before the global tendencies call for innovative, smart and flexible solutions for urban living conditions – it is a fact that for the last years more and more of the global population lives in towns and cities than in smaller settlements. The limited urban space calls for smaller and smaller living arrangements, but this does not necessary means that compromises with the quality and style of life should be made. It presents an opportunity for creative and unexpected ideas which leads to new trends and artistic solutions at the design and architectural scene. And flexibility is the key to it – flexibility of furniture and space arrangements, flexibility of imagination.
Over the next months and years, interior style is set to go back to nature, according to Hamilton, with soft, warm, calm tones. She thinks a colour scheme of natural terracotta, greys, woody tones, muted blues and greens will be hot for 2018.
According to Andi Pepper of Andi Pepper Interior Design, 2019 will be the year of agate stone tile. “The natural symmetry of this pattern really draws in the eye, and works as an appealingly chic contrast to bold colors and simplicity in a more modern space.”
The bold and confident vibe that comes from the vibrant colors and shapes inspired by the Seventies, the Boho Chic and retro glam are tendencies that translate easily into today’s dynamic interior decor. So, the retro inspiration is visible every way you look at the trendy design scene. Some elements and key pieces are must do, their era-defining shapes, their textural feel and color richness, and of course the unique lighting schemes and lampshades are also pretty characteristic and can shift the whole decor appearance in no time. So, where to look when a desire to add a touch of bigness and unique shapes from the 70s style is upon you? We have selected a few strong examples coming from renowned brands and designers that carry a distinctive retro feel entwined with their unique, artistic and contemporary features.
Boho is one of those design trends that comes and goes—but in 2019 we expect it to come back with a bang. Designers Caroline Grant and Dolores Suarez of Dekar Design say that “the boho vibe is back, but with a vintage modern twist and curved lines. Layering and patterned fabrics are something you will see again, but this time around a bit cleaner and brighter.”
“I think that in the current socio-political climate we may see a move away from ostentation,” leading interior designer Charles Rutherfoord told The Independent. “It would be wonderful if a reaction against this led to understated elegance and purity of line.”
An again earth inspired collection – the Tectonic Tables. This iconic creation features a dynamic set of three marble-clad tables that can move closer or further away from each other, just like the fluid movements of the Earth Tectonic Plates. This smart composition by the renowned Belgian stone company Vandenweghe also features trendy brass legs that introduce a jazzy note to the luxurious feel of the marble tops. The dynamic character of this composition also includes the possibility the table set to adapt to different layouts and to be arranged separately as well.
Instant Panorama composition is a new concept curated by Studiopepe that express its strong characteristic color, materials and shapes combination in a contemporary way with a hint of retro.
“We’re also seeing an exploration beyond the boundaries of the canvas. New works by Luke Chiswell combine multiple canvases in an irregular shape to make one unique piece.”
Although luxury is a constant trend for many brands. The innovation research and inspiration comes to exciting and sustainable discoveries at the furniture creation scene – the 3D printing comes to mind. Practical, flexible and easily arranged in the dynamic modern life flow, the contemporary 3D creations also have an added value. Some design studios and artist, which we will present to you further on, use sustainable bio-plastic to create their 3D project; others recycle and reuse the domestic plastic waste, but either way, they come to show that art and contemporary furniture creation can also be respectful towards the planet.
Happiness never goes out of style and it looks like fun, whimsical art and decor isn’t going away anytime soon either. Robyn Blair Davidson, who was called “The Most In-Demand Instagram Artist of 2018,” will be keeping that title for 2019, with her line of candy art by robynblair designed to sweeten up any space. “People want to be surrounded by things that make them happy,” explained Davidson. She thinks people vibe with the style of her artwork because “These elements make people smile every time they see them. The bright fonts, colors, and textures are art within themselves.”
The Israeli architects Pitsou Kedem together with Irene Goldberg and Sigal Baranowitz created the aerial magic of Ya Pan Bistro. Mesh screens in contrasting colors hang above the industrial-vibe base of the steel structures. The natural, tasty sweet color variations between strawberry red though raspberry pink to blueberry blue are going to be a strong presence in the design scene in the upcoming seasons.
The dynamic possibilities for the interior decor composition offered by this artistic and beautiful creation are also inspired by the traditional Jewish-Yemenis culture – local craft, such as filigree craftsmanship and traditional embroidery in unique clothing are used as an inspiration and guidelines for the creation of this flexible contemporary furniture piece.
“We added some visual texture to the original charm of this 1880 Catskills farmhouse with a black and cream rug. The classic pattern, a bold counterpoint to the natural rustic wood, adds a modern, graphic element while creating separate areas behind the dining, entrance and living spaces.” — Stefania Skrabak, Art Home GardenNick Glimenakis
This year is going to be all about sustainable pieces and recycled decor. According to Tracy Lynn, “items made by hand using sustainable materials are a great way for people to feel grounded in their homes and feel more in touch with the earth and their roots.”
Although marble has been trendy for a while, Hamilton believes it will remain popular into 2018. But, she says, there’ll be a broader colour scheme, with browns, greens and blacks all featuring.
“Black is classic and sophisticated, and allows for high-contrast, sculptural moments.” — Michelle Dirkse, Michelle Dirkse Interior DesignHaris Kenjar
The dynamic and intriguing nature of the terrazzo is bringing this complex material back in unexpected and hot trends. This durable material has been around for centuries used mainly into the architectural structures as flooring or cladding, but now is making a comeback in a significant artistic manner. A composite material formed by mixing marble, granite, quartz or glass chips into a cement or epoxy binder the terrazzo turns out to be flexible enough and sustainable enough to be used in multiple design articles and elements: from 3D printed floors to small decor details and lighting solutions. The terrazzo is here to stay, and it offers an excellent variety of colors, textures, and applications.
“Layered spaces, complete with a heavy dose of textiles and vintage or one-of-a-kind pieces are our calling card. And frankly, there’s no better way to achieve a Global Nomad-inspired sensibility in your own spaces! Start by looking around at what you already have, then hit local antique shops and estate sales to add interesting art and accessories to make your space sing.” —CLOTH & KINDRustic White Photography

The elegant set of high and low, oval-shaped tables laid on asymmetrical legs are dynamic and enchanting – the veins patterns appear to be flowing with the shift of the viewpoints. Excellent addition to any sensual and dynamic contemporary interior arrangement.
The ever-changing conditions and dynamic nature of modern life provoke the search for alternative living accommodations, inspire flexibility and modular furniture design and calls upon the movable individual. The nomadic living can be part of urban culture or can be a search for temporary accommodations such as travelers and explorers lifestyle, vacation homes or disaster relief housing. In any form, the choice of living is part of any culture or society. The growth of cities and suburbs is beginning to make many people question what is the most appealing way of living. Nomadic architecture and design is looking to satisfy the flexible life choices, the movability and dynamics of life, celebrating the freedom of expression and complexity of life and artistic creations.
Teaming up with the fashion brand Diesel they created a “collection of laid-back and comfortable products“ that includes the iconic Assembly Sofa composed of dynamically contradictional plush velvet and industrial steel bolts.

Chelsea Nassib, Founder of online gallery Tappan, says a lot of art is pivoting towards a hyperrealistic style. “Hyperrealism is a style of painting and drawing that resembles a high resolution photograph, such as the work of Anna Roberts.”
“It has gone from mature marble surrounds to modern shapes but today people want something unique with inlays metals and interesting shapes off the shelf,” top interior designer Kelly Hoppen says.
Embrace your inner hippie and layer fun textures and prints to create a bohemian vibe in any room. We especially love this look in nurseries or children’s rooms where you can add a little bit of sophistication while maintaining a fun, laidback vibe.
By now you probably know all about minimalis home decor, but the theme of 2019 is “more is more.” We’re leaving behind the stark, modern look and embracing a sensibility of excess and textural overload. According to interior Designer Anne Hepfer, we should expect to see this style surge this year.
Dark and cherry wood cabinets are officially over and 2019 will be the year that kitchens evolve. Christine Stucker of Stewart-Schafer stated that painted cabinetry will be the hot contemporary look. She explained, “This is a very timeless look and there are an amazing array of colors to choose from especially with brands like Farrow and Ball.”
The creation of a stackable seating set made from four stools and a tray with a silhouette that combines its ethnic, inspiration with contemporary elegance. Entwining different materials: iron, copper, linen into elegant, woven shapes the designers left a space for the personal choices of the owner, different forms of the stools create a differ totem, when the furniture pieces are not needed, can be stacked on top of each other.
Millennial Pink has lost it’s cool. Prepare for the return of red. Colors bring life and character statement to any interior.
Pooley says texture is going to be big news both with fabrics and finishes: “I think we’ll see a lot more highly textural fabrics with contemporary woven metallic threads in the weave,” she told The Independent. “Fabrics like these create a timeless and chic look in any room.”
The deeper variations of the colors introduce warmth and characteristic strong statement to the decor composition. The play in the red-purple spectrum is very sensual. The polarity of the upcoming trend – the energizing statement of the bold red and the more subdued style of the blubbery inspired hues can satisfy a great versatility of tastes – from the searchers of strong sensations and energizing experiences to the ones that prefer the calmer and softer expression for their ambiance.
But velvet doesn’t have to feel traditional or stodgy. “When velvet is used on a tailored piece of furniture with clean lines, it doesn’t look as stuffy as if you were to place it on a Victorian piece of furniture,” Toombs says.
There’s no place like home, and whether yours is a rented shoebox with damp stains and a mouse infestation, a 10 bedroom country house complete with tennis court and garden flamingos, or a penthouse suite with floor-to-ceiling windows and a rooftop pool, it’s important to make your home somewhere you feel comfortable.

Consider ditching black furniture or accents and using navy instead. These navy side chairs offer a clean, modern look without feeling too heavy or dark in your space.
What’s more, natural hand-baked tiles with geometric patterns and shapes are going to be on-trend.
We’ve already seen that many 2019 interior design trends embrace velvet. From art deco to maximalism, velvet tends to creep its way into many different styles. Liz Toombs, a certified interior decorator and the president and owner of PDR Interiors, says we should expect to see even more velvet in the next few months.
A new year means a new chance to refresh and rejuvenate your space. And although some elements of home decor will never go out of style, interior design trends come and go, giving us something new to look forward to year after year. It’s time to embrace what works (like this moody living room styled by aaronleitz and photographed by allisonpickart) and say goodbye to what doesn’t.
You may say wood is a traditional material that will never go out of style. And while that’s true, the use of wood has grown in popularity year after year, and we expect that to continue as we move into 2019. Whether you introduce wood flooring to your kitchen or decide to add more wooden elements to a bathroom or dining space, we’re all for bringing the outdoors in.
“In the absence of color, it is always important to add plentiful texture and movement, even if you use various neutral tones throughout the space. This client, in particular, has a large living and dining space that we filled with layer upon layer of organic and patterned elements. From the pillows on the sofa, to the wall decor, to the details of the accent furniture, we are touching on ingredients that have always been our signature: natural textures, fluid shapes, and calm, clean colors.” —Lisa Sherry InterieursMichael Blevins

In the Schlickeysen modular furniture system, the curved ceramic vaults are supported by a metal frame with contemporary, dynamic expression. Thanks to their standardized size a rich variety of settings can be configured – picnic tables, continuous benches, grandstands, topographies, and many more typologies can be achieved by just arranging the metal supports and the ceramic vaults as a horizontal surface.

Colors are big and bold this year, especially in the kitchen. Appliances are a great way to add a pop, according to Orion Creamer, Founder of Big Chill. “Bold, splashy colors tend to overwhelm, but when combined with a neutral palette in the same temperature range, they create a unique style that wows. Depending on where your home is located, you can get away with incorporating complementary colors. For example, if you live in a more southern, coastal area, a cool color such as a light blue or teal may look nice paired with a bold coral-colored appliance.”
How can you make sure your interiors are on trend though? God forbid you Instagram anything as basic as a light-box or a gold pineapple. Unless you love light-boxes and gold pineapples. In which case you do you.

This creation of the Taiwanese designer Laurel Hwang, called Plier is a multi-purpose piece of furniture with a light modernistic silhouette that can serve as an artistic space divider in open-plan lofts securing privacy, or as a trendy bar installation when there is a gathering of friends obtaining the connection. The furniture piece features a perforated translucent pattern panel that can form a spatial boundary and a contemporary frame of hydraulic pistons that are within telescopic rods and allow the piece to transform with ease into a trendy table-bar installation.
This cozy bedroom from theclassiccottage is another great way to adopt the sustainable decor trend this year. The space utilizes materials such as jute and rope—and is all about reusing and recycling. The “headboard” is actually a rug hung on the wall, which adds a beautiful finishing touch to the bedroom. This year, think outside the box and consider how to upcycle pieces in your house from one room to the next.
The architects Andrea Marcante and Adelaide Testa from the renowned design studio UdA Architects present us with its vital and chic interior decor composition for a small apartment in Milan.

This is one sculpturally impressive and functionally intriguing creation of DUS Architects.

Their choice, implication, and intensity create the basic sensual feel of the space and together with the tactile sensations compose the uniqueness of the atmosphere. Observing the trends in color usage in the global interior design scene, one can say that the recently hot Millennial Pink is losing its ground and the red wave is coming.

Sheets of paper and resin compose the unique creation of Heatherwick Studio the Friction table, the furniture that can adapt to different spaces and needs.

“One thing we’re starting to see more and more, and that we love incorporating into our own designs, is bringing the two together to create perfect harmony—darker, unique leathers paired with bright, white cabinetry,” says Hammel. “We believe that the best, most beautiful rooms and homes of 2019 will achieve an ideal balance of both masculine and feminine.”
Jazzing up the concrete box this project proves that even square limited spaces in the urban concrete jungle can be flexible and entertaining. Introducing sliding panels, movable furniture and walls and hidden compartments the architects from Wei Yi International Design Associates provide either open spaciousness or necessary privacy – whenever needed. The large bucket’s circles penetrating from the upper floor become an artistic installation that dominates the décor and gives it the illusory feel of, so grand a space that huge art installation can be inserted, but usually, we don’t use the ceilings, don’t we?
Bobby Berk of Bobby Berk Interior Design says we are saying bye to Edison Bulbs and replacing them with vintage modern lighting. He explained, “Rather than the exposed bulb and exposed wiring I much prefer a vintage piece of lighting that has stylistic cues from France or Italian modern design. They are refined, well proportioned, modern and have sculptural lines and shapes. Think Stillnovo, Bauhaus or Sarfatti for wall sconces and lamps.”
Don’t miss the retro trend too it is still trendy. And we will take a thorough look at it. Many designers stay focused and inspired by the retro feel. So, yes, we defiantly still need the warmth, softness and roundly glitter of the disco vibe. And last but not least, we will investigate the intriguing nomad lifestyle, the movable and flexible furniture arrangements and of course the small urban homes that provoke the imagination and the creativity of the designers. These are the dynamic segments and the core of our research of the 2019 interior design trends. Come, let’s explore them closely.
It’s one of the oldest parts of a home, but the fireplace is seeing a resurgence – even in the British summer.
Apart from these fresh, innovative elements, the traditional organic materials don’t lose their value: wood, glass, stone are still an excellent choice for the designers. The innovation here comes from the strength and durability of the materials. Lately, the glass is so durable that entire furniture’s are created by it, or it is used as a stable base for heavy marble tops. The terrazzo and terracotta presence is also an actual trend at the materials composition scene.
Velvet and other rich textiles will be more prominent than they’ve been in past years. This fabric creates a sense of warmth and depth, especially during the colder seasons. Krissa Wichser, interior designer and owner of the home decor store The Blue Octagon in Malvern, Pennsylvania explained, “Velvet used to be considered old-fashioned but it’s now seen as luxurious and comfortable. I also see more and more color coming back into homes—bolder, richer and dramatic.”

In this photo by Zack Benson, we see how art can come alive—literally. Instead of investing in a new piece of artwork, consider living plants. This shadow box filled with succulents is a unique way to bring the outdoors inside and add a pop of color to any room.
This cozy living room from eclectic_interior proves that modern pieces, like the brown couch pictured here, can embrace velvet and lend an inviting warmth to any space.
Space entwines bold contemporary solutions with retro hints and unexpected materials such as Vienna straw and wicker, and lively patterns are juxtaposing the monochrome elements. Inspired by nature and its reflections (beautiful old trees visible through large windows, floral patterned wallpapers throughout the space and abundance of green) the apartment interior features intriguing and artistic details, unique pieces of furniture and such a vital color palette that space grabs your imagination and won’t let go.
Dynamic duo Alexis Rodgers and Pam Mamourian of Home With Alexis look at the upcoming 2019 design trends as a positive change. Alexis stated, “I see a shift away from the omnipresent cool gray walls and dark stained hardwood floors of the past few years towards a warmer color palette and more vibrant accent colors. The former palette will still have a place in homes of a certain style, but more and more clients are embracing the latter. People are exploring a more out-of-the-box, colorful side and want their homes to be a reflection of who they are, not a page out of a catalog.”
But not all cabinetry will need handles and pulls. Sara Ianniciello of Whitehall Interiors says we will see upper kitchen cabinets replaced with metal, wood or glass shelving. “Inspired by hotel and retail spaces, this adds to the overall bold statements that many people want to make in their homes, forgoing the minimalism that was popular in years past.”

“As we settle into fall in Chicago, we’re thinking of enveloping spaces. Deep jewel-toned color blocking unifies this bedroom vignette and gives a sense of warmth and comfort. The nearly monochromatic inky blue envelope is the perfect backdrop to highlight the bordeaux velvet coverlet, the richly hued art, the gilded mirror and the macassar cabinets.” —Tom Konopiots & Michael Stornello, Vincere, Ltd.Scott Shigley
To the same point, Pam projects that the trend for 2019 is all about individuals gaining a sense of confidence in their own voice. “I believe it’s a reaction to the current political climate and a step into a post television design show period. This will take shape through a variety of ideas and forms, but be prepared to see more individuality, warmth, and personality expressed in interiors this year.”
Halo LED Chandeliers will also be big next year according to Michael Friedes, of Michael Friedes Design Associates. “They offer a sense of a sculptural form that produces a very functional light source at the same time—as evidenced in this dining area I designed for the penthouse apartment at The Harrison in San Francisco.”
If you’ve never painted over your dark cabinets, consider yourself trendy! This kitchen designed by Lynn and photographed by Ryan Garvin proves that when paired with an open, airy and light space, dark cabinetry can still feel modern and fresh.
Another traditional material that finds new, creative ways to express itself the ceramics, more specifically the red brick is circling a big comeback on the design scene. Something to keep an eye on. Composing this beautiful and unique home that blurs the borders between open and closed (aiming not only the openness of the inner premises of the house towards its surrounding gardens but also creating a dynamic play in the patterns of the bricks, which introduces an aerial and sculptural feel) the Taller de Arquitectura Mauricio Rocha + Gabriela Carrillo went to Puebla (a city famed for its ceramics) to bring a custom-made red bricks in four different sizes.
Combining flexible structure arrangements, bold and vital colors whit the purity and simplistic expression of the concrete and the contemporary minimalism of furnishing the designers achieved an exciting and dynamic space configuration in this dull and stereotyped concrete frame. The multi-functionality of the large central piece of furniture meets the ingenious flexibility of the space dividers and allows a multiplicity of modern life combinations.
