Top Interior Decor Trends for 2018
As Spring emerges around the corner, look ahead to giving your home a fresh design twist. This season, last year’s trends are given a modern twist at Native Barn, with rich pigmented shades, luxurious textures, and rich wooden accessories. Read on to discover more about the trends to look forward to.
Update neutrals with bolder hues
While a classic grey palette will always be timeless, this season, give neutral greys an uplifting feel with the addition of deeper complementary shades. Bringing in rich pastel shades and deeper gemstone inspired colours to your home can be a great way of transforming minimalist spaces, to add warmth and personality.
Choose a living room sofa in a statement shade of blush pink or dusty lilac, to pair with dove or slate grey interiors. Bring extra depth to cooler spaces with jewel toned throws and cushions over furnishing, and draw everything together with an oversized rug.
Indulge in texture
Luscious tactile home furnishing is certainly one of this season’s biggest draws. Think indulgent thick knits and shaggy weaves, opulent velvets and contrasting natural fibres.
Velvet is ideal for this season’s palette of dark, atmospheric tones – giving a sumptuous feel to navy, emerald and slate grey shades. An upholstered arm chair or sofa can be offset with brighter accessories – bright cotton cushions in white or graphic stripes can give a visual as well as tactile play on textures.
Balance heavier, darker shades and textures with a touch of lightness. Natural coloured rugs in soft, thick weaves can bring an inviting touch to any space.
A new take on Scandi style
Scandi style was one of last year’s biggest trends, and its chic, effortless tones still have a strong influence on this year’s interior décor looks. A cool, neutral palette combining greys, whites and natural wooden accents still reigns – update this look with a mixture of contemporary and vintage inspired furniture, with classic silhouettes and more graphic shapes.
Less is still more with this trend – keep things calm and understated, without overwhelming a room with accessories. A few artfully chosen pieces placed well will do wonders to uplift a room instead!
A world away from calm, understated neutral tones, the other end of the style spectrum features a lavish nomadic spirit – with bold and exotic prints, luscious jungle inspirations and earthy tones.
Set the foundation with darker wooden pieces – a coffee table in a rich coffee-coloured finish, or sideboards in a worn, textured wood set the stage perfectly. Offset these with bright and unabashedly adventurous prints – bold plant-inspired patterns across sofas and cushions, or even a touch of zebra or leopard print can work well.
Don’t hesitate to add a little shine – burnished gold and metallic accessories gleam brightly amidst darker colours, while a touch of indoor greenery can bring a vibrant complementary feel into your home.
