2018 has arrived, and this week we’re diving head on in to the style trends that are expected to takeover inside the home this year.
Let your mind wander as you read on, and dream a little, imagining where you could implement some of these bold and audacious trends in your new or existing family home.
2018 is your invitation to push the boundaries when it comes to colour in the home. Neutral shades have been popular for many years, and will continue to make up a large portion of your home, but don’t be afraid to experiment with bold reds, blues, yellows and greens in your styling this year.
Rugs, blankets, or items such as clocks, or kitchen appliances are a great way to test out your new bold colour scheme, without feeling like your overcommitting.
Why not check out Pantone’s colour of the year, Ultra Violet, for some bold inspiration?
Yes, we realise following ‘bold colours’ with ‘black and white’ seems counterintuitive, but we mean monochromatic pieces for the walls; black and white art or canvas prints that cut through the clutter with simplicity.
A black and white print on a blank wall, in a room with a splash of bold colour will ooze sophistication, without over-doing it. Just take a look at the ideas below to see how well the combination works!
Everyone likes a little bit of luxury in their home, or to feel that sense of holiday relaxation when they slip into the bath.
Bathroom’s with a resort-inspired style are quickly becoming popular in Australian homes, teaming practicality with a heightened level of style and elegance.
Think marbled tiles and vanities, copper or gold fixings, a deep bath tub, foliage (either real or fake!), and lots of natural light.
Of course, we can’t all just rip out our old bathroom and upgrade it to one fit for a luxury resort, but perhaps when you’re dreaming about building your dream home, you’ll add a spa-style bathroom to your wish-list!
The herringbone pattern adds an element of dimension to any space, and will compliment a traditional or modern aesthetic in the home.
Typically, we see the herringbone style in timber flooring, however more and more we’re noticing it popping up in both wall and floor bathroom tiling. This is because the pattern actually makes the space seem bigger to the naked eye, and works well in wet areas such as laundries and en suites which are often kept quite small.
In a way we’re getting back to our first 2018 style trend – bold colours – but this time we’re talking about the entrance to your home.
A statement front door in a shade of red, burgundy, green, yellow or even pink will inject life into a space that boasts a soft and neutral colour scheme, and makes for a fun way to welcome guests into your home.
And really, how simple is it to experiment with this one? A few coats of paint can change it completely, and if you don’t like it, another few coats can change it right back!
