In the New Year, the focus will be on the feeling of well-being. The furnishings must not only be aesthetically pleasing, but they must feel good too.
When designing rooms, we look toward the happiest nations in the world, the Scandinavians. Hygge and Lagom will be embraced in the New Year with comfortable four-poster beds and soft fabrics such as velvet. In addition, indoor plants are used in every room to make the atmosphere more comfortable. Pilea peperomioides (also known as the Chinese Money plant) and plants with patterned leaves are in vogue.
Earth and natural colors such as caramel and honey will decorate our interiors in the coming year and give them a gentle effect. The natural, authentic home look is being seen in the comeback of light floors. They reflect more light and can be casual or luxurious. We are seeing a rise in people using handmade products made from sustainable natural materials and colors. Sustainability helps us find grounding in our own homes in these fast-moving times.
As an antithesis to the digital world and the smooth surfaces of smart devices, sensory experience is regaining importance in the home. “Living to touch” works with fabrics such as jute and rice paper (especially for lamps) as well as clay. It’s a good thing that boho flair and vintage twists will be more popular than ever again in 2019. Those who love detail will also be opting for interesting tactile fringes or bouclé fabrics this year.
Colorful dashes of pigment in a simple environment, statement wallpaper, and simply the courage to use color is the flow of the home in 2019. This trend demonstrates the desire to face the future with confidence. Creative geometry in the form of ball lights, a touch of glamorous Art Deco, fish scale tiles, and galactic art come into the home and encourage good moods. If you want more, you can rely on trimmings – the decorative details such as borders, cords, tassels, and flounces are absolutely hip in 2019.
