Every year brings with it a slew of enticing interior design trends that incorporate the wonders of color and the intricacies of fragrance. All of these elements play a role in enhancing your living space and giving your property a personal touch. In 2019, these trends range from vibrant hues to handmade décor to lush fragrance oils. How can you unite them all in perfect harmony? Take your cue from these suggestions.
So long, exposed pipes and wooden beams everywhere. In a year during which we bid a fond farewell to the industrial and high-tech design trends, you can expect things to take a more natural turn. The trend lends itself well to earthy materials in neutral earth tones. It’s easy to create balance when you introduce these elements to your interior design scheme. The effect is serene and understated, especially when you incorporate details like plush throw pillows, sustainable furnishings, bamboo plants, and sleek glass vases to bring the look together. Even eco-friendly fixtures, LED lighting, and water-saving appliances contribute to the home’s more natural appeal this year. Green scents with herbal, woody notes are the ideal finishing touches in any room that includes a natural design scheme.
Don’t let the concept of mixing patterns scare you away. Brilliant prints that range from vivacious florals to fun graphics breathe new life into contemporary spaces. The trick to making this look work is to establish a bit of balance in your design concept. You can venture into it slowly by adding splashy throw pillows to your patterned couch or by wild floral wallpaper into a powder room or compact bedroom. There’s a certain mirthful, blithe feeling about this trend — it’s not the hoity-toity pattern you’d see on grandma’s couch, but a more exuberant, adventurous take that shows you aren’t afraid to experiment. Colors are radiant and unassuming in their presence. Think about rainbow palettes, which are as fearless as the concept itself. Fragrance oils infused with citrus or bold spices, like those in the Happiness Collection, make wonderful partners for the look.
Pale tones have their place, particularly when you use them to open up small spaces. But there’s a gradual shift to richer, more elegant hues that feel almost aristocratic in their presence. Many of these shades are in line with other trends — deep greens channel natural styles, while heavily saturated yellows capture the feisty spirit of vivacious prints. If you favor gray, you’re in luck as this popular color continues to reign. Jewel tones contrast well here, and you can easily play this trend up or scale it back depending on your design preferences. Is a new velvet couch in order? If not, an accent chair or a few colorful cushions could be just what you need to shake things up. Warm, romantic fragrance oils, such as those in the Flower Bouquet Collection, resonate well here.
