Top 10 Interior Design Trends for 2019

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

A new year means a chance to revamp our spaces, and with all the gorgeous trends lined up for 2019, we can’t get enough. Read on for our favorite interior design trends for the year and get ready to dream up your next renovation.


Light Wood

A big shift this year will be towards lighter woods, with darker shades like cherry slowly making an exit. From flooring to furniture, incorporating these paler hues will help to brighten up your space and keep things feeling natural.

Bold & Deep Colors

Whites and greys have been dominating the scene for a while now, but in 2019, it’s all about color. Specifically, be on the lookout for a move towards deep and rich hues that evoke warmth and comfort. Go bold this year, and we guarantee you’ll fall in love with the result.

There are so many versions of velvet on the market now – from traditional to soft and plush – that you’ll want to embrace this fabric ASAP. Just be sure to maintain balance in a space – you don’t want to cover every furniture piece in velvet, but instead choose one stand out piece as an accent to let it shine.


Copper & Brass

Out with the rose gold, and in with those warm copper and brass metals! The trick with incorporating any metallics, of course, is visual balance. Try mixing and matching up to three metals for a curated look and avoid going overboard with one metal (too much brass in a space can be overwhelming).



Florals are about as classic as it gets, and if you opt for these in your fabrics or wallpaper this year, you’re sure to have a timeless look that lasts for years to come. Go bold with a splash of yellow or magenta in your prints or keep things minimal with more neutral shades. Whatever your go-to style is, a floral pattern will certainly be the perfect finishing touch to any space.

Bold Backsplashes

While subway tiles will always be a go-to classic style, 2019 is all about bold backsplashes. Make a statement with a unique color scheme or add a touch of whimsy to your kitchen with a geometric pattern. The bigger the statement, the more we approve.

Canopy Beds

Everyone loves a bit of luxury in their lives, so it’s no wonder why canopy and four-poster beds are making a comeback this year. As long as your space has adequate ceiling height, this is definitely a furniture option you’ll want to consider. It helps to keep your bedroom feeling intimate and cozy – which is the perfect way to end each day.


Multifunctional Furniture

This year we’re going to see a rise in multi-functional furniture. Think side-table and chair combinations or coffee tables that double as storage spaces (basically any furniture that serves multiple functions). For those who are looking for space-saving tips and tricks, these pieces are must-haves.

Unique Pieces

Finally, 2019 is ushering in a shift away from mass-market goods and towards work by local artists and unique vintage finds. Individuality is key and finding high-quality pieces that reflect your own personality will help you make your home feel as welcoming as can be.
