The Home Interior Trends to Welcome In for SS18
After a year of flamboyant prints and shiny metallics it’s time to see which home interior trends are due to enter our homes in 2018. Now is the perfect time to start planning a home decor refresh, and there are some seriously swoon-worthy trends in the pipeline to help you stay ahead of the curve.
Here’s a peep at some of the biggest SS18 interior trends to keep an eye out for:
Powerful Pigments in Living Spaces
Neutral greys have been the reigning interior colour champions for quite some time now, but 2018 is showing signs of people adopting bolder, richer colours on both walls and furniture. Among the top industry colour predictions are burnt oranges, bright greens and vivid blues for kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms, but you can extend these to your bedrooms if you’re feeling extra bold.
Ideal Home Magazine is very excited about textures this year, predicting a shift towards interiors with a more handmade, tactile quality. Rattan and wicker furniture in particular is set to see a rise in popularity, along with textiles with raw edges and fluffy textures. Other key texturised home interior trends include a resurgence of velvet and leather, so it might finally be time to buy that statement Chesterfield you’ve been pining for.
Not all of last year’s interior trends are on their way out. Tropical prints are still very much IN for 2018, and the bigger and bolder the better. Palm fronds and cheese plant leaves are still at the forefront of this print trend, but last year’s carnival pinks, yellows and blues have given way to a wider range of deep forest greens for the new season. Bring this leafy jungle trend into your home this year with the help of printed cushions, wall art and – if you’re feeling bold enough – statement jungle wallpapers.
Forget the scandinavian bleached wood home interior trends of yesteryear; 2018 is all about the dark side of furniture. This new year is already hinting at an overall trend shift towards a resurgence of retro glamour interiors, with walnut, mahogany and dark oak furniture set to find its way back into our homes. Pair it with warm metallics and bold, moody colours for a whole new take on modern luxe living.
The nation’s love of pared back, stripped down interiors is set to continue this year, with industrial aesthetics remaining ever popular as we head further into 2018. Exposed brick, concrete surfaces, raw wooden textures, bare light fittings and vintage bulbs are all making the cut, and they can be cosied up with the addition of soft textiles and copper accents if you don’t want to go too minimal.
After years of neutrals it seems that colour is finally finding its way back into our bathrooms in 2018. But it’s all about bold and exciting shades rather than the washed-out greens and lavenders of the 70s. A splash (pardon the pun) of bathroom boldness is just what we need to give this needlessly bland room a bit more character, and the rise in coloured sinks, baths and fitted units is helping us do exactly that. But don’t go overboard; keep your colours restricted to accents only or you may find your bathroom looks far too loud. Try mixing small coloured tiles with neutral ones for a feature wall, and don’t forget to add matching coloured bath linen to finish off the look.
Neutral Master Bedrooms
While bold and rich colours might be dominating in the rest of the house, neutral tones in the master bedroom are set to remain as one of the key SS18 interior trends. Soothing, earthy colour palettes, soft lines and minimal furniture are all here to stay this year, helping you create a haven of calm and tranquility in the room where you need it most. Pick soothing shades of luxurious bed linen to complete the look; warm greys and soft biscuit brown shades are especially good for setting a neutral tone.
Plants With Pinks
Almost every home store in the UK is showing lots of greenery in their SS18 collections – hardly surprising given the season – so big, leafy plants are a must-have in your home this year. Dusky, blush pink shades are also very popular, adding a beautiful spring pastel palette to your home and creating a fabulous botanical theme when paired with the rich green plants. Try placing ferns, ivy creepers and statement palm fronds in front of pink walls, sofas or curtains to achieve this picture-perfect style in your home.
