Your own style is never out of fashion, but its always worth taking a moment to look through what's predicted to be some of the hottest interior design trends for the year ahead in 2019!


Combined with a touch of mid century modern, hints of this decor style can be incorporated into many design scopes. You will see a nod to the 'Art Deco' showing up everywhere including furniture detailing, mixed metals, lighting, wall coverings and more!

Velvet looks to be just as popular going into 2019.

Keep it modern and eclectic by using it in combination with contrasting interior textures and styles to create that effortless chic look.
