The top design trends for 2019

As much as I hate to admit it, I am definitely a sucker when it comes to new trends.  When it comes to the latest trends, we often focus on beauty and fashion (I’m looking at you shocking pink hair), but we often forget that new trends can also apply to our homes too.  Sure, we’re not about to go out and purchase an entirely new bedroom set every season, however there are still plenty of ways to incorporate these trends into the spaces we have spent time slowly curating over the years.  In fact, adding a trend piece to your favourite rooms in the house can help them feel fresh and current.

Get ready to get glossed!

Opting to paint your walls with a high-gloss paint can help to create a vibrant and bold ‘jewellery box’ effect in your home. A huge number of design enthusiasts are taking this trend one step further by painting a whole room in one colour, including doors and mouldings.  Using this décor option can help to create a cosy and sophisticated space.

If you’re keen on replicating this look, it’s vital that you treat your gloss paint with the care and attention it deserves.  When you’re applying your gloss paint, make sure to invest I quality brushes.  It’s also important to make sure the surface you are choosing to paint is dust-free and is properly primed for the gloss paint.  You’ll thank me for this little tip as any glossy finishes tend not to be the most forgiving when it comes to any paint flaws.

Get ready for curves ahead!

Curved sofas, sectionals and curved chair backs are all the range when it comes to decorating with s mid-century feel.  These curves help to soften and invite conversation in any type of room setting.  These popular designs are often used in rich velvets and tactile chenille fabrics to add depth and drama to any room.

You’ll be pleased to hear that while vintage curved sofas will easily break the bank, you can also find some reasonably priced options with a little bit of digging online.  I really like the curved chair options West Elm and Oliver Bonas are currently offering.  These are decent dupes of the vintage dream, so you should definitely look at these brands if you’re looking to recreate a mid-century vibe in your home.

Go gallery style for your next redecorating project

When it comes to hanging art in your home, there really are no rules.  From original paintings, to lithographs and photography, the trick to displaying these just right is all about the framing.  You should also think about hanging your artwork in groups if they are on the small side or you can go large for an unexpected and dramatic feel.  Large artwork works particularly well in big and expansive hallways.

Putting together the perfect gallery wall can often be tricky. This will take time and effort and will usually involve the help of a top-quality framer.  Also, don’t be afraid to play around with the composition of your gallery wall until it feels just right.

Get ready to make a splash with your heating system!

One of the easiest ways to make boring, tired white radiators stand out from the crowd is to replace them with a designer radiator option.  Trade Radiator’s designer radiator selection is a great place to start your search.  This brand pride themselves on offering trade price to their customers and you may be surprised at how much of a difference they can make to the overall look and feel of a room.
