Interior trends that will never go out of style
Although some trends come and go in the blink of an eye, the very best have longevity and consistently influence new styles long after their first appearance.
From statement wallpapers to dainty floral fabrics, there are endless ways to welcome this timeless and versatile trend into a space to suit your personal style.
Whether it is furniture or pattern, mid-century inspired pieces will never fall out of fashion. Mid-century furniture is stylish and functional, never prioritising one over the other, while mid-century patterns are sophisticated and fun, with their muted tones and soft shapes adding a touch of design flair without ever looking too overwhelming.
Evoking imagery from the 1970s, bold and colourful abstract prints are an ideal way to easily inject an abundance of character and personality into a space. Introduce a selection of vibrant soft furnishings into living spaces and bedrooms through well-chosen soft furnishings, or make a statement with your walls in an animated dining space that will ensure conversation flows and your guests have a fabulous time whenever they visit.
Often referred to as a neutral, leopard print can be incorporated into a wide variety of different aesthetics. You can be as bold or as subtle as you like with leopard print, from introducing large canvasses to spruce up otherwise blank walls to investing in a few leopard print mugs to display in your kitchen for just a hint of bohemian chic.
Depending on how you choose to style them, polka dots can look cute and quirky or effortlessly chic and stylish, making them one of the most versatile patterns. Style your polka dot dinner service with chic metallic candle stick holders and bunches of fresh pink roses for a quirky and relaxed get together, or make a style statement by introducing a monochrome polka dot wallpaper into a space for the ultimate contemporary backdrop to your favourite pieces of furniture and accessories.
If incorporating a touch of soft femininity into your space is high on your design to-do list, it is impossible to go wrong with pretty pastel hues. Go all-out and choose your favourite pastel wall colour, or take things slow by introducing a few pastel pink, yellow or blue chairs around a white dining table for an instant flash of modern femininity.
Southwestern style is not all about cowboy boots and hats; instead, you can introduce a slice of classic Americana into your space by incorporating distressed metals and rustic wooden pieces combined with soft furnishings made from natural materials such as cotton and hessian.
Influences from the orient
Classic blue and white pieces adorned with beautifully crafted Chinese illustrations are the epitome of sophistication. Place a beautiful vase on your coffee table to create an elegant feature, or display a full antique tea set on a contemporary side table for the perfect combination of old and new. The soft colour palette will instantly add a touch of interest to an otherwise white space, or help to ground a room featuring a wide variety of colours and tones.
Just like our fascination with space, 1960s retro design is not going anywhere anytime soon. Retro space-age inspired pieces are ultra-cool, with white walls, white rugs and white leather sofas making a real style statement without the need to rely on bold colours. Play with textures for added interest; however, it is often best to let the individual pieces do all the talking.
Instantly associated with free spirits and the swinging 1960s, geometric patterns are bold, youthful and incredibly versatile. Monochrome geometric patterns look excellent in modern, minimalist interiors, with bold and colourful designs the perfect addition to a vibrant and cosy living space. Introduce simple geometric storage boxes to organise a calming home office, or contrast a brightly coloured rug with the crisp lines of an elegant glass coffee table.
