As we welcome 2019, it’s time to start looking at what design trends we expect to see this year. From which materials and finishes feel fresh to a surprising design style comeback we never saw coming, here’s what we expect to see more of in 2019.


Let’s get colourful

Because no wall in your home should be left as a blank canvas, we’re looking at trending interior paint colours for 2019 to get you inspired.

Last year was all about bringing an edgier palette into the home, with bold reds, modern metallics, and variations of the statement wall. Unlike 2018’s colour trends, 2019 is taking a more mindful, lifestyle-based approach. So expect to see beautiful rich earthy tones, which bring the outdoor in and repair our connection with nature, as well as calming pastels, which help clear out the mental clutter.

Retro is back

Retro is making a comeback, and for good reason! After nearly a decade of pristine white walls and marble surfaces, home owners looking to renovate their space are leaning towards a more unique look that better represents them. After all, home is where the heart is, so why not add some personality to it?

Patterned floor and wall tiles are a fun way to add a bit of personality into any room of your home. Whether it’s chequered black-and-white or bold colours, let the 1950s inspire you. Another great way to embrace the retro look is to add a Crittall style mirror, creating an unmistakably stylish atmosphere in any room of your home.

Be brave

Another way to add a bit of retro to your kitchen is in the form of some statement old school appliances. Opting for bold colourful appliances can really bring your home up to date.

2019 is all about high style, in rich hues, and making a statement. We love Lacanche’s fantastic selection of colourful appliances, which provide a retro touch while offering the high-performance features that consumers expect. The colour possibilities are endless!


Return of the gold

Gold is back and it’s bigger and better than ever. Don’t think back to the nineties, where everything, from top to bottom, was hues of gold and beige. This time around gold is being partnered with rich contrasting shades, embellishing your home without taking over.

This metallic trend is fresh and new. Manufacturers are offering up gold patina’s, rose golds, black golds, bright golds and mixing them with high end appliances and raw organics. This finish has never looked so good as a new traditional with a twist.


Bespoke custom made pieces

One design trend we are delighted to see more off in 2019, is bespoke custom made pieces of furniture. Whether you have an awkward sized space to fill or are looking for a dining room table with a difference, Four Corners can make your dreams a reality by crafting fantastic bespoke one of pieces for your home.

A wonderful example is our waney edge table. With the woods natural form exposed, we can confidently say that no two tables are the same. They can be made to almost any size, and create a fantastic rustic atmosphere.


Black is the new grey

Black is another colour that is clawing it’s way back from the past for 2019. Bringing that sharp contrast to kitchens and elegance to a space that no other hue can do, this is an upcoming design trend we are excited to see more of!

Combined with warm wooden tones and gold finishes, you have an updated twist to an eighties classic. And the best part is, you can incorporate almost any other colour and it will look great!


Create an Indian paradise

Tropical was a huge decor trend throughout 2018, however we expect to see even more colourful prints with Indian influence in 2019. With many opting for paisley accessories to bring the Indian theme into their home, why not go one step further with Indian influenced wallpaper?

Colourful wallpaper prints are ideal for bringing a breath of fresh air to a space. These flamboyant stylised intricately patterned wallpapers are a great way to inject colour and make a bold statement.
