Slowly but surely, the snow is melting, the cold wind is getting quiet and the memories of cold, grey, cloudy days will soon fade away with an explosion of colours, smells and new memories waiting to be made!
So, it is a perfect time to take a look at the hot interior design trends that await us this spring! From comebacks in big style to some true surprises, it looks like 2019 is going to be a very vibrant and exciting years where everything is about you!
Without further ado, let’s get into it!
Wabi-Sabi and the aesthetic of the imperfect
One of the trends that is really catching on fast is sure to bring delight to all the fans of exotic décor styles out there. Wabi-Sabi (侘寂) is a philosophy and a concept that comes from the traditional Japanese aesthetics that is based around transience and imperfection. With a thing for simplicity, austerity, roughness and simplicity, Wabi-Sabi readily embraces the imperfection and fading of the material. Combining minimalism with rustic elements, this décor trend is coming in full force in 2019 and if you are keen on catching up on this trend, keep your eyes open for some handmade ceramics and beautifully flawed, decayed and asymmetric aesthetic details.
Round, flowing and organic lines
While the past year saw a strong revival of sleek and elegant minimalism with uninterrupted straight lines and angles, the spring of 2019 is coming with a flair for soft and inviting vibe of rounded furniture elements. If you are a fan of oversized ottomans, plush couches, curvy and expressive lounge chairs designed in the spirit of mid-century style, you are in luck! This year, round, flowing and organic lines seem to be what all the hype is about.
Herringbone patterns all over the place
I know what you will say – herringbone has never really been out of style! While I am close to agree with you on that one, I am not talking on traditional wooden floors pattern. This season, herringbone is coming to leave a mark on – well, almost everything! From small décor accents to whole walls patterned in such a way, it seems like you can’t go wrong with this stylish and lively pattern. Be sure to combine it with some bold and vibrant spring colours for maximum expression and a modern feel.
Tropical prints and retro posters
Ok, let’s face it – full-wall prints have had their days and are rather odd most of the time today. It’s rare that they make a comeback, but in spring 2019 it seems like retro is back in style stronger than ever before and with it, we can see a new love for floral and tropical prints flourishing all over the place! And if you don’t want to risk with a full-wall print just yet, we have some more good news. It seems like framed retro posters with tropical and botanical motifs are again hip and in style. This can be an amazing opportunity to take part in this new fad while still keeping it subtle.
Gilded details for a vintage look
As the hype about sleek urban black-and-white minimalism is fading and giving way to warmer retro aesthetic, so are the chromed finishes going out of style, giving way to classic brass that will give your aesthetic accents a vintage gilded look. Vintage, brushed and even super-shiny brass finishes are the way to go in 2019, so you are free to experiment. If you like the Wabi-Sabi thing I mentioned above, rustic brass might be the best choice for you. But if you’re not ready to give up on your sleek minimalist expression just yet, add some polished brass details for a bit of glam.
Warm, natural and rustic
If you made it this far, then you must have seen this one coming. And it’s not really a surprise – natural and rustic elements never seem to completely go out of style and most of us are used to them always being somewhere near, ready to find their way into our homes yet again as soon as we thought that we’ve seen the last of them. With Wabi-Sabi aesthetic and tropical prints, wooden accents, rustic concrete vases or leather drawer pulls seem to come to full prominence, adding a completely new level of warmth and sophistication.
Home office in casual style
Home offices have been almost a must for some time now. Even if you’re not a freelancer and you’re not bringing your job home, it is highly likely that your study or dedicated internet-surfing corner is looking a bit like an office. In previous years we’ve seen a lot of attention being paid to serious elegance and sophisticated vibe of your workspace, but let’s be honest – if you’re not expecting any business meetings in your home, your office or study should be all about you. In spring 2019 this is more true than ever before with playful prints, motivational posters and strong personality being in the focus.
