This seasons interior design trends

The internet is buzzing with Spring and the developments in interior design. From the brand new to the evolved, there is plenty to inspire the casual updater or the complete home makeover artist. Pinterest and interior design blogs such as Rachel Newcombe’s Fresh Design Blog evaluate the latest collections from designers and the high street, honing in on the novel and suggesting ways to incorporate new trends into readers’ homes.   

The newest phenomenon in the sphere of home fashion is the explosion of geometric design. Beginning in 2013, the obsession with Moroccan themes has been embraced and appears in every possible medium. From opulent wallpaper by Graham & Brown to stunning floor tiles from Fired Earth, geometric patterns twinned with this season’s hot shades of rose gold, pastel pink and greys create a bold, modern impression. 

This year’s feature walls use bold geometric wallpaper teamed with co-ordinating paint on the remaining walls and accessories picking out elements of the effect. 

Metallic lamps, marble accessories and signature furniture pieces in luscious velvet or exotic leaf prints in deep green are also features of the 2018 look. Greens and extravagant plants are a strong feature of bedrooms and bathrooms, with the jungle themes dominant last year, still popular.

If these looks don’t speak to you, then polar opposite monochrome rooms or bold floral prints are still on trend. The addition of some black and white geometric wallpaper or accessories to your monochrome domain or boldly floral upholstery to a quietly dressed room can add attractive focus. 

Taking inspiration from the catwalk and adapting the look for the home retailers, such as Ikea, adopting the 2018 bold block colour designs seen in Vogue. Block rugs in contrasting shades and solid colour cushions instantly add pizzazz and a fresh new feel to any room.

In kitchens and bathrooms we are seeing scope for using the dramatic Pantone Colour of the Year; Ultra Violet. Keeping ahead of the curve is made easy through the addition of vibrant glass splashbacks from companies like Deco Glaze who can quickly supply a colour update. Even more simple are the addition of small purple appliances, quirky ultra violet china or funky reupholstered bar stools.

As we look forward to the Summer we anticipate seeing the new trends in interior design being featured in our property photos.
