While some interiors trends have been around for years (Scandinavian inspired spaces, gold metallic accents and and bright white or light grey walls), each year sees new trends develop and we're particularly excited about 2018's!
Here are the top 6 trends our experts are forecasting for the year ahead.
1. Deep green
Think rich moss, jewel tones or deep sea greens. This luxurious colour can be incorporated through furniture, accessories, accent walls or layer the colour to make a bold statement.
2. Art in twos
They say three is the magic number when arranging accents and accessories in interior design, however 2018 is knocking that on its head and applying the 'three's a crowd' rule when it comes to hanging art on your walls. We particularly like the contrasting landscapes and complementary textures in these examples...
3. Modern chandeliers
The word chandelier often evokes thoughts of crystal beads and overt opulence, but these classic light fittings haven't avoided a modern makeover. With clean lines and metallic finishes, these modern chandeliers will give any room a fresh take on classic elegance.
4. Brass accents
Out with the rose gold, in with the new; brass! Rose gold owned 2017. It was everywhere; from interiors to fashion, stationary to car dashboards (genuinely)! But, just as we're embracing new resolutions for 2018, we're also embracing a new metallic finish for our home's accents. Update your candle holders, towel rails, door handles and even your planters to embrace this trend across your home.
5. Round tables
While they had their moment in the 80's, these days, round dining tables are often reserved for hotel function rooms. But, we love the social aspect of sitting at a round table, not to mention its visual impact when placed in contrast with clean lines and defined spaces.
6. Scandi-clad rooms
Pictures of Scandinavian homes have been a go-to for interiors inspiration for years now, but with high street stores slowly catching on, emulating the Scandi-style has never been easier. Meadows and Byrne, Debenhams, Dunnes and even Penneys are all stocking minimalist furniture and accessories, which means the Scandinavian look isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
