Interior Trends and Tiles for 2019!
18 Dec 2018
Original Style has teamed up with award-winning interior blogger, Stacey Sheppard, author of The Design Sheppard, to present top interior trends for 2019.
From ‘Rough Luxe’ to ‘70s Revival’, 2019 is set to be a year full of colour and textures and Original Style has a tile to complement each of the following on-trend looks!
1. Rough Luxe
Industrial décor continues to be popular amongst interior enthusiasts, but it can be difficult to integrate this style into domestic settings. Through the incorporation of luxurious finishes and accessories, warmth and elegance can be brought into an industrial-inspired space.
“Rough Luxe is where refined luxury meets rough industrial finishes” comments Stacey. “Expect to see warm metallics like brass and gold, paired with exposed brick and concrete”.
Original Style’s Midnight Blue, a metal-effect tile, is perfect for creating an industrial look whilst retaining luxury and tranquillity. Pair Midnight Blue with gold accents, warm tones of grey and earthy textures, such as the concrete-effect tile ‘Shadow Smoke’, for a space that exudes style.
2. Colourful Kitchens
The use of bold colours in kitchen settings is set to soar in 2019. “With kitchens in deep navy blues accompanied by statement metallic splash backs, we are done playing it safe in the kitchen and we are seeing some really bold statement colours coming through” comments Stacey.
To achieve this look; team Original Style’s Copper Leaf glass tile with dark hues, greys and wood-effect floor tiles, such as Lignum Taupe, for a statement kitchen that leaves a lasting impression.
3. 70s Revival
With the arrival of fringing on home accessories, bold colours and patterns; it’s time to welcome the return of the experimental glamour of the 1970s! “Colour wise we will see a strong focus on rich, earthy tones like mustard yellow, ochre, olive green, chocolate and camels such as Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2019; Spiced Honey” says Stacey.
The Winchester Tile Company’s Olive Green, Honey and Amber field tiles are ideal accompaniments to this revival. Pair with retro-patterned wallpaper and fabrics with bold motifs for a real throwback!
4. The New Neutrals
When it comes to neutral colours in interior settings, a variety of palettes have come and gone over the years, from the very dated Magnolia to the more recently beloved Grey. However, it’s now the turn of the New Neutrals.
“Think tea rose, lavender, mint, lilac and pale peach shades” says Stacey. “Pastel colours in a more muted shade are 'in' in a big way and are perfect for those who are looking to create bright, open spaces”.
To embrace a pastel colour palette, team Original Style’s Maison Blanc, a pale blue tile with a woven fabric effect, with ‘Mint’ or ‘Cloud Smooth’ from The Winchester Tile Company.
5. Natural Selection
Materials such as wood, rattan, seagrass, wicker, cork and bamboo naturally provide warmth and texture to spaces. When paired with Original Style’s palm print tile, ‘Hot House’, and ‘Cream Natural’ wood-effect tiles; expect to be immersed in a tropical paradise.
“Focus on imperfect finishes, artisan, tactile accessories” suggests Stacey. “Hot House from Original Style perfectly encapsulates nature at its best and is a great tile for embracing this trend!”
