2019 trends for your living room

The beginning of a fresh new year is synonymous with renewal and change, and this same notion also applies when it comes to our homes. It’s the opportunity to leave behind what no longer inspires us, in order to make way for all things new. So for those looking to get a head start, we took some time to investigate the predicted home trends for 2019.

A focus on wellbeing
Becoming more health and wellbeing conscious is always at the forefront of our minds whenever a new year rolls around. And as we aim to not only repair from within but also redesign our home surroundings, it is our recommendation that you should first consider the power of paint.

Colour holds the power to greatly change our mood – If you are considering painting your home choose colours that evoke a feeling of relaxation and wellness. Soothing natural and neutral tones all hint at the idea of mindfulness and fresh beginnings.

Feel-good furniture
Given the abundance nowadays of available local artisans, who focus on a holistic approach when it comes to furniture design, the act of choosing more sustainable and natural fibres for our furniture will be greatly in favour.

Larger pieces of furniture will be more minimal, with a focus on relaxed pieces, less clutter and lines — translating through the quality of workmanship and embracing the slower life. The focus with this growing trend is handmade and natural as people will seek to invest in more bespoke, one-off pieces that have a story or create an emotional connection through good design and high-quality finishes.

Colours inspired by nature
As our everyday lives become more and more connected to the digital world, our desire to bring more natural tones into the spaces in which we live continues to grow. Perhaps this is a telling sign that people will always be drawn to what grounds us most, such as bringing more of the colours we come across on the outside in.

Often earthy colours make us feel at ease and relaxed, inspiring us to repair our relationship with nature and embrace a more ‘circular’ way of living. Choose colours that are quite timeless, this means they are versatile when it comes to decorating.”

Indoor plant trend will grow
Indoor plants aren’t going anywhere in 2019. The past few years have seen an incredible resurgence in the popularity of indoor plants. Both aesthetically and from a wellbeing perspective, people are becoming more aware of the way in which indoor plants can enhance our spaces.

For so many of us living in urban, often small, environments, having that everyday connection to nature and greenery can make a huge difference. The living room, is often one of the most utilised spaces in our home, so having greenery in this space where we spend a lot of time is really important.

We’re also big believers that surrounding yourself with indoor plants can help promote productivity and creativity, as well as be incredibly rewarding when you’re able to nurture happy and healthy plants. The benefits really do go on.

Storytelling items
Trends aside, there is no doubt that people will always be drawn to bringing their own unique and personal touch to a living room – such as framed photographs of loved ones, a personal collection of items, or textures and colours that inspire fond memories.

People want to enjoy objects that have been collected as a result of experiences, as it’s a form of storytelling as to who they are and how they live their life. Adding items collected through travel, coffee table books, photos and art, are all great examples of how you can layer and personalise your living room.
