13 Feb Top Interior Design Trends Of 2018
2018 was a fantastic year for interior design trends. As Sydney interior designers, the Mageia team got to experience them all. Here are a few of the design looks that stuck out in our minds over the past twelve months. It might even inspire you going into 2019.
- Geometric Prints
There is nothing we love more than geometric prints. They were everywhere this year. Whether they came in pastel or bold colours, big shapes or small details, we could not get enough of geometric wallpaper, bedspreads and even artwork in 2018.
- Pantone’s Purple
As all design enthusiasts will know, Pantone names a colour of the year every year, and this year it was a deep purple shade called ‘Ultraviolet.’ Many homeowners jumped aboard the trend train and paid homage to this award-winning colour by including it in features in their home. It’s not an easy colour to use, so we salute those bold enough to use it effectively!
2018 was a year of going back to our roots. Botanical prints made a MAJOR comeback, and we saw everything from botanical wallpaper to cushion covers becoming popular features in many well-designed homes. This is definitely a trend that we’re fond of, and it’s one you can use to bring peace and tranquillity into the spaces you’re fondest of.
Forget minimalism. Maximalism definitely dominated the year! Homeowners and designers alike truly expressed their personalities through bold use of colour, prints, and designs. With this trend, more is more!
The industrial trend has experienced popularity for a good few years, and this continued through 2018. This trend is defined by the use of mixed materials, found objects, brass finishings and exposed light fittings. It was a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms.
Macramé was exceptionally popular in the 70s and made a major comeback in terms of home décor. These knotted handmade items offered endless décor and design possibilities, and we saw them used for pot plant holders, wall hangings, chairs, and hammocks.
