Interior design seems to be undergoing somewhat of a lift this year, we are now moving away from cooler tones to more earthy and warmer schemes, reflected in the use of matt terracotta in hard furnishings and more intricate geometric patterns such as the introduction of hexagonal tiles and bold geometric patterns introduced in soft furnishings.
There’s been a measure in recent times to step away from the sober, open-plan contemporary interiors we have seen for over a decade, as people start to realise the inconvenience that open plan living can create, such as noise transfer and the problems associated with cooking smells transmitting around the home. In response to these problems we have seen the introduction of broken-plan living, a concept which enables the homeowner all the benefits of an open-plan scheme but with the added bonus of a snug or a retreat to get away from it all.
We have seen an influx of more Scandinavian, Nordic designs in our homes - sleek lines with the warmth created from wood, especially plywood in ceilings, kitchens and splash backs, alongside the use of natural fabrics, including leather and wool, with a slight dusting of geometric soft furnishings.
There has also been more of a shift towards arty, eclectic interiors, those which use natural materials, local crafts and arts to create a cohesive scheme.
Dark, murky colours will dominate home trends this year such as Dulux’s Buckingham green, burnt reds, rusty oranges and sandy beiges.
High gloss finishes in kitchens cupboards are no longer in vogue - matt is now the preferred interiors choice, or a mixture of the two (as in the photo from Leicht). We will also be seeing more high/low end-design this year, such as rough cut worktops made from marble and untreated walls.
Round mirrors, especially oversized round mirrors are bang on fashion this year and are set to continue to be for the foreseeable future.
Bringing the outside in, probably to get more in touch with our outside spaces continues through large bi-fold doors, floors which continue from inside to out.
