This year we are seeing big changes in the way people are decorating and accessorising their homes. In this blog post, we are going to share with you the top home decor trends of 2019 that are currently sweeping the nation and getting interior designers very excited.
We are seeing a lot of homes moving away from the cooler colour palettes of late and veering towards warmer, more feminine, colours like dusty pink, bronze, warm greys and beige - you read that correctly, cooler greys are out for this season!
In fact the general movement this year is towards an overall more feminine look and away from masculinity; sparse, open spaces with bold lines are out and comfy, cosy, florally decorated areas are in.
The idea of trading style for comfort has had its day and the trend right now is that comfort shouldn't be overlooked; spending a little extra to add more comfort is encouraged! Try adding more cushions to your bed or sofa area for that extra cosiness and check out 9 Cushions Combos to Fall in Love With to help you make your selection.
Velvet is still very much an 'in' thing. Use it for larger pieces of furniture, throws or cushions; the texture can be comforting and homely.
You'll be pleased to hear that wallpaper is most certainly on-trend right now and you can get more inspiration for the types of wallpaper to choose for your next home renovation in our blog post: Dreamy Must-Have Wallpapers 2019.
This season we are also seeing a lot of attention to detail, for example, tassels, pom-poms and frills. Why decorate with a plain blanket or cushion when you can have a cushion with beautifully feminine details and styling?
Make sure to include macramé, florals and added adornments where possible.
When choosing cupboard handles, taps or metal accessories for your bedroom kitchen or bathroom, the key trend to opt for would be brass or gold with a hint of vintage styling. Rose gold is certainly beautiful, but it won't age as well and will go out of style faster than the classic gold or brass accessories - keep this in mind when you make your selections.

Biophilia is still a very strong influence in the design world, with people craving a link to nature and the openness of the natural world; these can be seen through the floral designs, wooden objects or leaf patterns appearing in our homes.
How do you think you will be adding this wonderfully feminine trend into your home? Which suggestion did you like the best?
