What to Expect from Interior Design in 2019
With 2018 in the rearview, are the trends of maximalism and jewel tones out the window? Not necessarily—Expect to see more bold colors, intricate accents and the incorporation of antiques in home designs. We’re looking forward to the following trends in 2019!
Modern farmhouse-inspired architecture sprouted up across the Austin real estate scene in 2018, and this year you can expect to find the same style of homes being built, but with a little more warmth and character. As millennials continue to make up a large part of the buying market, they’ll likely be looking at homes with a Midwestern modern aesthetic.
Mix and Match Transitional
Traditional design meets contemporary elements for transitional interiors that feel familiar but make a statement. It’s becoming common to pair Scandinavian elements with contoured textures or repurposed furniture to add a little character to any interior, and 2019 will only see an uptick in this style of design.
Think classical art with a whimsical twist. Animals, flowers and people in a serious style will be juxtaposed with exotic backgrounds, out-of place elements and bold colors for unique statement pieces to showcase around the home.
Mid-Century modern out, soft curves in. Couches and wardrobes with hard lines will be traded for those with smoother backs and sides in 2019 for a more subdued and relaxed look.
Matte Black in the Kitchen
Matte black will be making waves in design this year, especially in the bathroom and kitchen. Expect to see matte black hardwood as well as matte black contemporary “cabinets” for stylish storage.
Earthy tones, especially subdued tones, will be popular in interior design this year. Grey interiors are making their way out of the design sphere, and swatches such as sand, burnt gold and terracotta will begin picking up momentum.
Pantone’s Color of the Year
Living Coral was named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019, and the shade will be making waves in interior design all year. An energetic hue with gold undertones, the warm shade is bold enough to make a statement but less exotic than last year’s Ultraviolet.
