Interior trends

We take a quick look at six interior trends we’ve already seen popping up this year.

Wabi-sabi

In 2017, we were all about ‘hygge’, the Scandinavian design trend that focused on creating simple interiors that are infused with comfort. This year, it’s time to take things a step further. Say hello to wabi-sabi design, the Japanese-inspired trend that’s bound to become your new favourite look. Best described as the art of finding beauty in imperfection, it is a mash-up of two things: wabi (simplicity and humility) and sabi (the passage of time and beauty of age). It honours all things old, weathered and imperfect and it is a way of life that shows love for all things.

Artisan textures

Texture is a big thing this season! Furniture has a natural handmade feel with materials such as rattan and wicker the stars of the show. Textiles take a playful role with lots of embellishments, raw edges and appliqué details – all irresistible to the touch.

Pineapples reign supreme

The humble pineapple is back on top as the trendiest motif to adorn your home.

Last year, the cactus print pipped the pineapple in the popularity stakes, but it would appear that the tables have turned. Although the cactus is most certainly not going anywhere, it’s taking a back seat to the pineapple once again…

Bespoke tiles

While subway tiles will never go out of fashion, we’re seeing more rustic tiles being used in homes.

Think bright colours with a more handcrafted, artisanal feel to them.

Jewel tones

Time to add a little glam and sparkle – jewel tones, inspired by metals, space, stars, clouds and the cosmos are getting a look-in. While mixed metallic, raw-cut quartz, lucite and opal are adding a dash of sparkle and interest, so too are X-ray materials, transparent fabrics, floaty silks and sheers.

Tropical prints

A continuation from last year, the tropical trend is still going strong – with the retro Swiss cheese plant being a hero alongside palm leaves. The trend has evolved for 2018 – it’s less about vibrant carnival brights and more about mixing plenty of lush, energising greens.
