OK, get the notion of shabby chic beach house out of your head. That’s not where this trend is going. With Pantone colour of the year as “Living coral” for 2019, the sea life trend is washing over interiors in more ways than one. You’ll be seeing an influx of coral shades in luxe hotel style rooms, mermaid tiling and sea life prints over everything from wall art, textiles and ceramics.

Beige is back
Contrary to popular opinion- beige IS NOT BORING! Neutral colour palettes have had a lease of life and they’re coming back strong for 2019. Keep it fresh and modern with shades of caramel, sand and natural cotton. Pair it with other natural textures (warm woods, wicker, cork) for a calm, and earthy feel or with Matte black accents for a more striking look.

It’s the focal point to so many living areas, with furniture being arranged around this centre point. This trend works for the real working fireplaces, the “fake” fireplaces and the non existent. If you’ve got a mantlepiece then focus your energy here. Statement mirrors, interesting accessories and artwork will bring it to life and create a talking point in the room. If you have the opening for a fireplace then why not create interest inside? Mixed glassware, stacks of books or an arrangement of plants will freshen it up. Non existent fireplace? Create the illusion of one! Use paint or tiling to create a focal point and add a shelf above to act as a mantlepiece.

Tone on Tone
Big in the world of fashion through 2018, tone on tone is about choosing one main hue and running with it. Use alongside other graded tones within that colour scheme, the idea being to create as little contrast as possible. Use furniture and accessories in similar hues to tie the look together. When it’s done right, it looks luxe and understated. If you’re feeling apprehensive about committing to one colour for your walls and furniture then why not paint some existing furniture? Then if you change your mind later down the line its easy to repaint another shade!
