Home decoration trends we can expect to see in the second half of the year

Wooden floors and outdoor furniture

It’s no secret that there have been a few interior design trends that have dominated the market lately (we’re looking at you: indoor plants, minimalism, blush and neutrals). But the year is far from over and style is always changing, so let’s take a look at some new trends we can expect this year (and a few that will continue to stand their ground).

1. More wooden features
As we see a trend leaning towards more natural features in the home (think greenery, shells, yarn and timber) it is no surprise that wood is working its way into more and more elements of our home design. Think wooden countertops, cupboards, floors and furniture. Bonus points if you can coordinate all your timber to match perfectly.

2. Bold splashbacks
Changing up your splashback is one of the simplest ways to spruce up your kitchen and give it a whole new look. We love the use of bold colours with glossy finishes, or the use of colourful and patterned tiles to create an eclectic look. If you’re scared of commitment: try some stick-on options that you can easily remove or swap over.

3. Navy is in
Are you a fan of monochrome, but yearn to explore the world of colour? Fear not, your time is now! Navy looks beautiful paired with mint and blush, and is neutral enough to allow you to use it as a staple colour in your home (and slowly wean yourself off of traditional black).

4. Bohemian
Layering, patterns and bold colours are back! If you are not a fan of the colour aspect, you can still try this trend with a cleaner and brighter approach. Use white or beige as a base and layer away with fun textures and prints of your choice.

5. Black is the new black
All-white has proven quite popular over the past few years, but black is slowly creeping back into our home designs. We love matte black appliances or black cabinets and storage for a simple yet striking twist on a kitchen.

6. Sustainable decor
Do you have a few items around the house that you feel no longer fit in the space? Why not repurpose them? An old rug hung on a wall can add a beautiful feature to a room. This is the essence of sustainable decor; it is all about repurposing your items and creating a sense of homeliness with natural elements.

7. Velvet
No surprise there, this one seems like it is here to stay (at least for now). Whether you go bold or incorporate it in small doses, velvet is one for the books.

8. Maximalism
This one certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you’re bold and brave, then this is the trend to try. Think a mix of textures, materials, colours, patterns and prints. Let your creativity run wild!

There you have it: the design trends to watch as 2019 rolls on! Whether you work on making small changes to your current decor with key pieces or opt for a complete overhaul, there is plenty of room to explore and have fun.
