With the new year on the horizon, it’s time to take a look at the home design trends that are set to be big in 2019!
From calming colour palettes to statement pieces in unusual places, home renovating and design platform Houzz have compiled a list of the homes and interior trends that they think are going to be popular in houses across Australia next year…
1. The rise of the pod
“Timber-clad pods have been popular as a way to add a separate backyard room, granny flat, teenage retreat, or studio for the past few years,” explains Vanessa Walker from Houzz. AU’s editorial team
“Now, we are seeing on Houzz that pod-like shapes are attached to, or inside homes. In this Sydney extension, the pod houses a laundry and bathroom and sits, in a deliberately ambiguous way, between the interior and the deck. We suspect rounded pods will continue to pop-up in the centre of otherwise conventional spaces and rooms.”
2. Pastel colours in the kitchen
“Confirming what we thought, professionals on Houzz are seeing an increased demand for pastel-coloured kitchen cabinets, which is set to strengthen next year,” observes Vanessa.
“Millennial pink made major inroads into decor in 2018, opening the way for other pastel-based hues, including baby blues, green washes and soft greys. These are proving to be a safe way to express colour in the kitchen, and in 2019 and beyond, are likely to rival all-white kitchens in popularity.”
3. Statement vanities
“Plain white and laminate surfaces will take a back seat,” the team say, while vanities with a distinct style flair and personality take centre stage.
4. Outdoors following indoor design cues
Aussies love the outdoors and that isn’t going to change any time soon. As a result, Houzz predicts that homeowners will continue to make their outdoor living spaces as comfortable as their indoor ones, choosing living room style furniture for terraces and decks.
