At this time of year we look forward to the big interior design style trends for 2019 and into 2020.
We would never advise following trends for big spend pieces because they could easily fall out of trend and you may be left with an expensive piece or an entire room that you regret having spent so much on to not like anymore. Your home is a reflection of you and the other people you live with. A home should really be about living with what you love. Sooz Gordon, Dundee-based interior designer says: ‘Home for me is about being surrounded by personal and meaningful objects. I am drawn to pieces that have character and have an interesting narrative. As a designer and maker, I look for quality materials, and appreciate craftsmanship and artistry’.
So here’s some Scaramanga inspiration for Interior Design Style Trends for 2019.
- The colour green – there’s no specific green. several variations ranging from bottle green to leaf green or a green turquoise. We think whichever green you consider using in a room makeover or adding to a room or space you’ll probably be inspired by the botanical trend we’ve seen over the last few years as well as embracing the idea of bringing the outside inside. So look at pastel green walls with natural wooden furniture, bold wall prints.
If a painting a room green is a step too far look to create smaller areas or pockets of greenness. So vibrant textiles here or a deep green cupboard or armoire set against a satin grey polished concrete floor.
There’ll be lots of greenery – create clusters of potted house plants rather than single pots around a room or space. Mix textures with concrete, faded vintage terracotta pots with chipped edges and smooth geometric curved pots with succulents and cacti.
In this turquoise vintage cabinet without glass, we’ve simply displayed plants with books and curios. A good idea if you don’t have a lot of surface space for plants.
- Plastic-free storage crates – We’re already seeing people buying more of our old wooden boxes and crates for storage. People have been really motivated to reduce the amount of plastic they use. And that’s not just single-use plastics. Plastic crates are regularly used all around the house to store everything from clothes to toys, books, Christmas decorations to dry food and anything we don’t really regularly use. Plastic crates often only last a few years as the brittle plastic cracks and breaks. They then have to be thrown away and replaced!
Old wooden crates are far environmentally friendly, they were often used for storing fruit and vegetables as it travelled to and from markets. Old wooden crates will stack without a problem.
Many of our crates date from the 60’s so have been in use for almost 60 years. Others are made from tropical hardwoods so are very strong and durable. Best of all they look fantastic. They are so flexible. Use them as side tables, bedside tables, bookcases, wall shelving, under bed storage, toy boxes, log baskets, drawers on shelving and so much more.
- Global nomad – this style is a real fusion of decorative patterns, earthy colours and natural textures found in handmade crafts. So imagine hand-thrown ochre coloured pots, mixed with bold spiced honey block-print textiles and rough cut honey-coloured hardwoods. It’s a celebration of rich tones and rugged textures from distant lands and a trend style we’ve loved for years. If Like Scaramanga’s founder, Carl, you like collecting and buying curios and eclectic items on your travels then it’s a style that’s not hard to recreate.
This trend is a diverse celebration of globally-inspired patterns – taking homes on a journey of global eclecticism. The look welcomes the fusion of decorative Ikats, paisleys and intricate Indian block prints. Rich tones and rugged textures symbolise the authentic, handcrafted style of this nomadic trend. It’s a form of eclectic styling.
We hope you’ve been inspired by our three interior design style trends for 2019. Remember style and buy what you like and not what you’re told to like!
