2019 INTERIOR DESIGN FORECAST
What in one thousand fruit loops are the hottest interior trends of 2019? If only we had a crystal ball? If only time travel was legitimate? If only we had an in-house interior designer so talented she would render the previous ‘if onlys’ as futile – WAIT on.
As it turns out, at Burbank we actually DO know a hot-lot about beautiful interiors and the trends that inspire them. This is fantastic news for design fans out there hankering for insights as to what the new year will bring…
Because we are good to you, we have gone right ahead and picked the brains of Burbank’s best designers and came up with FOUR design themes you can expect to see dominating Insta, Pinterest and our new display homes in the coming 12 months… brace yourself.
RETRO MEETS CONTEMPORARY
The best of the 60s and 70s are back and they’re better than ever. This trend combines tweed textures, rattan, velvet, leather, linen and terrazzo with bold pops of colour for a beautiful and vibrant space. It also fuses rounded forms with linear framing to create a truly fresh feel.
BACK TO BASICS
Keeping it simple – this style has been around for a while and echoes the minimalism we have come to expect from our Scandinavian counterparts, yet it also embraces the timelessness of nature by integrating organic/sustainable fabrics into the mix, fusing them with brown leathers and neutral tones like sand, olive and terracotta. Plantation shutters, white washed finishes, organic edges, textured low modular seating and beautiful indoor plants are all popular with this look, effortlessly connecting the outdoors with the in. This return to nature is particularly calming, acting as an escape from the tech-heavy landscape we now operate in.
Curves and rounded finishes are signatures of cruisy or ‘gentle’ minimalism. With a colour palette including dusty mauve, apricot, mint and blush with pops of matt black, this minimalistic trend is very 90s. Terrazzo, marble, chenille and fine tweed fabrics bring tactility to the trend – it’s minimalism, but not quite as we know it.
DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA
In stark contrast to the beauty of minimalism is the razzle dazzle of dramatic styling.
‘Maximism’ flips minimalism on its head by encouraging clashing colours, textures and patterns and using colours like cobalt blue, emerald, yellow and sage – this vibe is as glam as it gets and would make your new home look true lavish.
For visuals, simply head to pinterest and type in a couple of these keywords/keep an eye on our newly opened displays over the next 12 months. Not sure which theme suits your style? The expert teams at our Edge Selection Studios across the country are more than happy to guide you!
