Pinterest has revealed the top interiors trends for 2019. Succulents, bold wallpapers and stylised nooks are showing no signs of disappearing in the coming year, according to the popular interiors website.
From small DIY projects like feature walls and painted floors to large overhauls like remodels and landscaping, here are the top trends predicted to take over in 2019.
1. Bold walls
Searches for ‘mustard yellow’ were up by 45 per cent, as fans of feature walls embraced the colour.
If you’re not feeling brave, go for smaller accents to make your walls pop.
Searches for ‘geometric paint’ increased by 225 per cent, while ‘tropical leaf wallpaper’ rose by 401 per cent.
2. Go green
Instead of painting, how about floor-to-ceiling greenery?
Searches for ‘vertical gardens’, a trend favoured by space-starved city dwellers, increased by 287 per cent this year.
Millennials with limited gardening experience will rejoice as the trend for succulents continues. Searches for ‘cactus arrangements’ were up by 235 per cent in 2018 and prickly plants’ popularity looks likely to continue.
3. Fabulous flooring
Instead of replacing, users have been looking for ways to update their flooring – searches for ‘painted floor tiles’ rose by 1,276 per.
4. Accessorise with style
Searches for ‘textile art’ in the past year rose by 1,718 per cent, as buyers looked for ways to add texture to their interiors.
One such trend is for using fabric and wool to create intricate weavings and mixed-media designs for the wall.
And a surprising trend developed. Trendsters are moving away from pink kitchens and gold kitchen accessories and playing around with tin in their homes.
Whether used as a simple backsplash, wallpaper effect or simply a vintage-style accessory, searches for ‘tin interiors’ were up by 563 per cent.
