Interior trend predictions for 2018
With the promise of a new year upon us, we have put together a brief overview of the top interior trends to look forward to in 2018.
As beautiful and inspirational as they are, the increasing popularity of curated social media feeds has, perhaps unsurprisingly, left us longing for a generous helping of authenticity. In the design sphere, this means a marked step away from faux industrial chic and a considered step towards the effortless incorporation of antique and vintage pieces.
If you love a weekend wander around your local antiques centre in search of something special, you are going to be firmly in your element throughout 2018.
Designers are looking to the 1970s for inspiration, so you can expect to see lots of saturated colours and plenty of curves in all the right places. The sharp lines of contemporary modernism will be notably softened, with round cushions, feature archways, loveseats and curved coffee tables injecting a touch of sophisticated glamour into our interiors.
Although the spacious and airy aesthetic of white kitchens will never go out of style, a distinct shift towards deeper shades is beginning to occur. Raw, natural wood tones come into their element when paired with deep navy, midnight black or dark grey hues, creating a homely and comforting ambience that is incredibly alluring.
As one of 2018’s trending colours, teal tones make ideal additions to monochromatic interiors. As with any statement shade, aiming for tonality is key. Add a striking sea green dinner service to your monochrome dining table, or a whimsical teal wall within an otherwise simple space.
If introducing splashes of energy and inspiration into your interiors is high on your list of priorities, choosing positive and motivating red hues might be worth considering. This does not just mean bold post-box reds, as there are whole palettes of corals, tangerines and deep burgundy hues to play with.
For something softer, try mixing millennial pink with rich berry shades for a touch of glamour that can be amped up even further with the introduction of some 1970s-inspired fringing. Alternatively, soft peach hues mix beautifully with rich oranges and earthy browns for a slightly different take.
The high street has been awash with copper pieces for quite some time, but dark accents are making a comeback in a big way. A distinct step away from overt glitz and a step toward minimalistic and refined design features, you can expect to see a lot of charcoal hardware and rich black feature lighting fittings throughout the coming 12 months.
If you still want to indulge in a bit of shine and glamour, gold will undoubtedly outshine its copper and rose gold cousins. Opt for burnished rather than bright golds if you are keen to avoid even the slightest hint of gaudiness; however, within the right design scheme, 1980s yellow golds are nothing to be afraid of.
The popularity of typographic prints proclaiming an array of slogans has been difficult to ignore, but 2018 is set to be the year that striking photographic work shines once more. Large-scale, atmospheric black and white imagery can make a stunning statement, with its moody monochrome tonality creating an enigmatic atmosphere you will adore.
As beautiful as they are, white painted floorboards are on their way out, which will come as a relief to anyone who has been fighting the often-losing battle to keep theirs spotlessly clean throughout the snow and rainstorms of autumn and winter. Strikingly beautiful yet elegantly understated, herringbone flooring is beginning to experience its much-anticipated revival. We can’t wait!
Finally, one popular trend from the last 12 months that certainly is not going anywhere anytime soon is houseplants! From pot plants to hanging plants and floor plants to faux plants, it is time to make all your greenery dreams come true in 2018.
