Top 5 Interior Design Trends
Your home is all about your style. Mix and match with some of these trends that are hot right now and have fun with your décor!
Bring the Outdoors In
Bringing greenery and nature indoors not only is a natural (pun intended) mood booster, but an indoor plant brings a variety of shapes and colours into the home that can be fun to experiment with. Fresh flowers bring fragrance into the home, herb plants are fantastic to cook with in the kitchen and bonsai plants are a unique feature all of their own.
If you’re already a keen green thumb and gardener, trim some stems and put them into a vase to brighten up your living area! The options are endless for vases too – will you go for a classic clear glass vase or go with a bold colour and a funky shape?

Jewel tones refer to the rich colours of gems, from deep ruby reds to gorgeous emerald greens. These colours immediate elevate your home into a lavish, classy, royal looking space.
Incorporate jewel tone colours into your home by either going all out by painting the walls or alternatively, pick out individual pieces to spruce up a tired room.
Committing to this theme means that the décor and furnishing of your home have to play nice. If you want, go to town on upscale look that jewel tones lend themselves to by setting up some richly upholstered chairs, metal accents and beautiful framed artwork. A home fit for royalty!
Clear sapphire tones offset the beautiful light wooden furniture.
Earthy textures are comfy textures like wool, linen, stone and wood that lend themselves well to living rooms and bedrooms. This rustic palette immediately makes us think of rugging up near cosy fireplaces in the winter!
These features can sometimes be ‘heavy’ looking so offset them with crisp white walls or accents, plenty of natural lighting and be mindful not to clog up the area with too much oversized bulky furniture.
A furry throw and wooden accents on the wall bring a warm aura to our Ebony living area.
Don’t be a wallflower – be bold! Big and fun patterns inject pizzazz and play into your house. Go for patterns in punchy colours and loud geometric shapes with big personality!
This trend is best deployed with feature items that you can highlight in your home individually. This could be a brightly tiled backsplash, jazzy bedsheets or for the brave, a wallpaper feature wall. These make for great conversational starters and make your home your own!
Be careful not to overdo it and keep the rest of your décor neutral and simple. This best showcases the trend to its fullest potential.
Colourful patterns lift the otherwise neutral décor of our Harvest Magenta bedroom.
Incorporate metals into your décor and make it a feature. Avoid matching brassy metals like gold or copper with cool tones like silver and stainless steel. Stick to one to really make it sing!
Exposed wood features compliments metal. Incorporate it with the metal surfaces and furnishings in your kitchen or bathroom.
Flea markets can also be a great place to find antique-style items that you can showcase as your homage to the trend like old metal signs, shelves or knick-knacks to display.
This standout metallic table in our Harvest Saffron home is a fantastic conversational starter.
