With a brand new year upon us, it's the perfect time to start thinking about giving your home a refresh (or, perhaps more accurately, it's the perfect time to stop thinking about re-decoration and actually make some concrete plans). So, here are the new interior trends for 2019 that we're most looking forward to adding to our home this year.

This trend welcomes cocktail hour with open arms! The drinks trolley is a key furniture piece for this season. They’re more popular than ever, as staying in continues to be the new going out, recreate the feel of a plush members-only club in the comfort of your own home with elegant glasses and tumblers.
This trend isn't limited to a drinks trolly - we love the look of a wine rack too which can double as a lamp table in the dining room. As well as being a beautiful piece of furniture, our Signature grey wine rack is practical too. Inside you'll find 5 rows for hanging glass wear plus lots of space for wine storage. Cheers!
Say hello to Living Coral

Say goodbye to millennial pink, there's another pink-tinted hue that is set to take over in 2019—according to Pantone at least. At the end of last year, the company announced that Living Coral, a bright pink shade, is its 2019 Colour of the Year. Pantone describes Living Coral as “an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with golden undertones." We think that there’s something irresistible about the combination of coral pink, and teal but it also looks stunning with grey.

Items made by hand using sustainable materials like jute, rice paper, and clay will be big in 2019. We'll see people using these grounding elements in their homes as a way to feel more in touch with the earth and their roots and as a way to embrace a peaceful retreat from crazy, modern life. We'll also see more designers & makers reverting back to craft, from experimenting with new materials to making limited quantities. In our world of mass production, they'll be a move toward these smaller batches, more 'artisanal' or 'boutique home accessories.
In 2019, embrace a curvy design aesthetic. Curved sofas and statement chairs, round dining tables – the circular shape will soften all the straight edges of a room and give it a bit of a feminine vibe. It’s a bit of Art Deco influence coming into play and probably a reaction to all the straight, hard lines that have been so on trend over the last few years. We love the contemporary shape of the Curved Home Office range. Manufactured from arched grey ash veneer, this desk has three separate working areas to maximise your available space.

Speaking of curves, it's not for furniture, the shape is creeping in to other parts of our homes too, mostly in the form of fish scale tiles in the bathroom or kitchen.

Incorporating geometric patterns is no new trend. Yet for the new year, geometric patterns are expected to become a dramatic presence. Colours will be bigger with oversized patterns and asymmetrical shapes. This is a trend that will help make a bold statement in any room or stairway in this case.
Crittall style windows

This window style has been staging a comeback and those sleek black frames have been filling up our Pinterest pages for the last few months. We're now seeing them used not just as windows and doors but as room dividers and even shower screens. It's easy to see why they are going to be so on trend in 2019, as the graphic shape definitely taps into the industrial look that’s still going strong.

An upholstered headboard in jewel-toned velvet adds a touch of sophistication in the often subdued sanctuary of any bedroom. Searches for velvet have increased by 400% over past six months and it is the most searched for fabric. Sumptuously seductive, a velvet headboard is the perfect way to bring the trend into your home.
There has been a strong Japanese undercurrent running through interior collections and in 2019 it’s really taking off. Designs bursting with rich silk textures, graceful bird motifs and stylised oriental prints are everywhere. The symmetrical pattern of this Nine Schools cabinet is decorated cabinet is a traditional design in Feng Shui and symbolises marriage and stability. The elegant design is accentuated with a high gloss turquoise varnish, is beautiful hand finish featuring a traditional butterfly and floral design and is closed with an antiqued metal catch.
