As such, we have selected the interior trends from 2019 that we feel will stand the test of time meaning you can add them to your list safe in the knowledge you will love them just as much in 25 years time as you do now.

Set to be a huge colour trend, we expect to be seeing moody regal greens popping up in all manners of interior design in 2019. Inspired by the paint colour ‘Night Watch’, the dark green hue pulls our memories of nature, recreating the calming and invigorating experience we feel when in nature. Mix this jewel tone with high-shine finishes and metallics to inject a rich shot of colour to a neutral space.
Introduce a warming pattern into even the most minimal of homes, or mix and match prints for an eclectic warming finish. Think decorative cushions, throws and lamps to introduce small elements of this trend. Start small and build it up to ensure a considered approach.
With the environment suffering major crisis after major crisis, we’re always happy to see new, innovative takes on production and décor that are easy on the eye while leaving little to no impact on the planet and its resources. It’s our responsibility to bring items into our homes that add grounding elements and take less from our precious planet.
The perfect partner to moody, regal greens - mix metals for a considered and luxurious finish to your home. Keep it timeless and tasteful by ensuring you never mix more than 2-3 accents at a time. Think brass, gold and nickel mixed with aged iron or rubbed brass and silver and pewter with bronze and black-bronzed metals.
Soft, romantic and ethereal, country florals are going to have a moment in 2019. Whether you choose to take an abstract approach with hints of florals here and there, or go for full on chintz, this is a look that is timeless and full of glorious nostalgia.
It’s the safe option almost all of us opt for: a neutral foundation for all the big ticket items in your home (walls, sofas, kitchens etc). 2019 makes our safe choices totally legit thanks to the trend of 10% colour 90% white. Inject those neutral with pops of colour through accessories - think lamps, cushions, rugs, kitchen appliances or textiles. We’re huge fans of pops of colour here at The Wedding Present Co. If executed with care, the use of colour on a neutral foundation is a clever, considered and timeless approach to home décor.
