Top Interior Design Trends for 2018

It’s that time of year again. The weather’s warmed back up, Christmas decorations are going up around shops and we’re all left wondering, ‘where did the year go?’

With 2017 slowly coming to an end, it’s time to start thinking about the year ahead, including the latest trends in home design.


Minimalism isn’t going away anytime soon, but stark and moody colour palettes are slowly being phased out and replaced with warm and earthy colours. Tones of sienna, tan and terracotta are set to be big.

Popular accent colours include black forest, emerald green and watermelon red, which can be introduced in a subtle way with throw rugs, artwork, ceramics and pillows. A bold way that we’re seeing these accent colours come to life are in modern kitchens. The all-black kitchen is popping up in style blogs and magazines everywhere, offering a contemporary and sophisticated vibe.

Homewares and Styling

Indoor plants have been in our homes for a while now, and there’s no indication that this is going to be changing anytime soon (sorry to anyone without green thumbs).

Wallpaper is another trend that’s sticking around, with the key trends being either geometric or organic. Organic styles form a softer backdrop, while geometric prints are a great choice if you’re looking to make a bold statement in your home.


Comfort is key in 2018, with low, puffy, curved couches making a huge comeback. Fringing is also said to be big, with many designers opting for fringing on furniture for a luxurious feel. Try introducing fringing with a few cushions to style up your home.

A new home gives you a blank canvas to try out these trends. So, if you’re interested in getting into a home of your own, why not make an enquiry:
