The 2018 Interior Trends you Need to Know

Now is the perfect time to update your home. While interior ‘trends’ last a lot longer than their clothing counterparts, there are still a few ways to start injecting new looks and design into your space. From the colours and finishes, to the decade to embrace now, these are the 2018 interior trends you need to know when refreshing your home.

Herringbone Parquet Floor

A lot of the interior trends for 2018 are focused on those classic looks that won’t ever really date. One such example is herringbone parquet flooring, as seen in this home in Palma de Mallorca. Natural and with just the right amount of pattern to make it interesting, this is flooring that only gets better with age (just look at the Coggles store…)

Ultra Violet

With Ultra Violet being Pantone’s colour of the year 2018, expect to see hints of purple incorporated into interiors and spaces everywhere this year. Whether you opt for large purple furnishings, walls, or choose accented pieces with soft cushions and glassware, this is the colour to embrace.

Carrara marble has been dominating the interior design world as the finish of choice for the past few years but 2018 is the year of terrazzo. Use small touches in your space for an instant update, with Broste Copenhagen plates being our favourite way to incorporate this trend.

70s Inspired

In terms of eras of inspiration, mid-century modern has led the way over the last few years. Now it’s time for another decade to take the limelight – the 1970s. Touches of this decade have already crept back into spaces (think: macramé plant hangers) but now it’s going one step further, with curved furniture in soft fabrics and rich hues being one of 2018’s best design updates.
