With spring finally here, now is the time that people traditionally give their homes a spring clean, declutter and refresh their interior spaces. This might be through the purchasing of new furniture, repainting the walls or changing the doors or floors. If you are thinking about giving your home a facelift this year, here are some of the top trends of 2018:
1. Rustic look
The love for all things rustic has continued into 2018. The main parts of this look remain weathered woods, shabby chic furniture and the use of other natural materials such as shells and driftwood. Feature pieces you can use to create a rustic tone include large jugs with flowers, mismatched vases and clay pots painted natural colours.
2. Travel inspired décor
This year another trend has been inspired by travels to all corners of the world. Interior designers are incorporating elements from different parts of the globe into furnishings – from wild animal prints on cushion designs to exotic patterns on sofa covers and feature wallpaper. Travel souvenirs, such as large bowls, wooden statues and canvas paintings are also being used as focal pieces.
3. Blocks of colour
Walls using just one colour are being reinvented in 2018, with the addition of stripes, shapes and stencils creating separate sections of colour instead. This new trend is being paired with simple furniture which complements the walls of the room rather than trying to compete with them.
