Key interior design trends for Autumn 2018 and beyond

Interior design Notting HillColour has made a huge comeback for home interiors this year, as you will have noticed on Instagram, Houzz or Pinterest. In 2018 interior design styles have become more sophisticated and daring, incorporating a far bolder use of colour. Designer furniture and homeware brand MADE.com are now featuring pieces in forest green, peacock blue and tomato red. While Houzz users have gone wild for the pops of vivid, jewel-tone colours Cathy Phillips & Co introduced for a minimalist, all-white bespoke home interior in Notting Hill, London.

Give your home interior a autumnal makeover

So with autumn almost upon us, Cathy Phillips reveals this year’s four exciting interiors trends, which look set to continue and evolve in 2019. These exciting styles and colour ways will give your home an instant update.

Bespoke Interior DesignRich bold tones for home interiors

Deep jewel shades and sumptuous fabrics add elegance, depth and comfort to a room. And striking hues like sapphire blue, emerald and vivid amber are having a major moment. To introduce these opulent colours into your home interior, try painting a wall, or investing in a gorgeous velvet pouffe, cushions or a new artwork. Also, choose metallic or glossy accessories to add light and sparkle to a darker space. It’s an inspiring trend, with Pinterest reporting a 70% increase in people saving metallic home decor ideas.

Feel-good fabrics

Adding warmth and texture to a home interior is another key feature bespoke interior designers and homeowners in London are adopting. Velvet and leather are increasingly being used for furniture and furnishings. Statement rugs are also trending on Pinterest with searches for Pinterest mixed metalsbeautiful rugs up by 236% this year and many being hung on the wall as a piece of art.

Nordic noir interior design

Scandi interior design continues to be popular, with its light, minimalist style. But now we’re beginning to see its darker side, with a colour palette inspired by the forest: pine green, charcoal, deep oak, mahogany and textured walnut. Rugs and throws in these intense hues will add depth to a room and give it a cocooning feel; while wicker baskets and candles will add a natural feel.

Back to nature home design

The trend for eco-friendly homes also continues to grow. From upcycling furniture and natural paints to sustainable materials, such as terrazzo made from stone offcuts, it’s all about creating stylish spaces that are environmentally friendly. Pinterest has seen a “48% increase in people saving terrazzo on their boards.” More and more London interior designers like us are experimenting with recycled materials.
