2019: A Blast from the Past for Interior Design Trends

With roughly half of the year already through, interior design trends for 2019 are well on their way. So far, the year can be characterized, among other things, as a “blast from the past”. Retro and vintage inspired décor have proven to be very popular choices for homeowners.

Let’s look at some of the most prominent interior design trends of 2019.

Nature as Inspiration

Over the course of this year, interior design has placed an emphasis on bringing the outdoors, indoors. Elements such as flowers, plants, copper, concrete, stone and granite have become favoured over more contemporary décor pieces. Adding elements of nature to your home is sure to brighten up the space, improve the ambience and boost your mood. Natural tones are often associated with a feeling of calmness and relaxation.

Velvet Accents

Velvet has been welcomed with open arms into the interior décor world once again, and if you watch fashion trends, you’ll have seen it make its comeback there too. The key to decorating with velvet is to keep it minimal. Multi-fabric furniture is a great way to diversify a room and give it authentic character. For example, try pairing a velvet chair with your couches.

Throwback Lighting

When thinking about interior décor, lighting is not always one of the first things that comes to mind. However, light fixtures add a great deal to the style of a room and can make a great conversation piece. This year, decorators have been thinking outside of the box to include vintage light fixtures in their plans.

Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterns were a popular choice throughout the 1960s and 1970s and they’re making a comeback in 2019. Geometric patterned wallpaper and tiles are becoming increasingly popular to give a room a funky refresh. Other bold wallpapers, such as florals, are also a great choice!

Bold, Rich Colours

Keeping with the throwback trend, many of the most popular colours for 2019 are funky and rich. Think deep reds, mustard yellows, pea greens and burnt oranges when you are trying to decide how to update your room.

Blending the Old with the New

Of course, even though this year’s décor is paying tribute to styles of the past, it must stay fresh and progressive. Pairing the old with the new is a great way to nostalgically bring the past into your home while staying in touch with the present. It can take time to get the appearance just right but blending old and new furniture can create an eclectic feeling for your home.
