Spring is in the air! Time to spruce up your space with a fresh new look! The top 2019 Interior Design Trends are hot off the presses at international design shows such as Paris’ Maison et Objet, Milan Design Week, and the UK’s CovetED magazine, so let’s get inspired!
If 2018 was all about neutral palettes, 2019 finds balance with provocative pops of color, such as Pantone’s 2019 color of the year–Living Coral–along with saturated moody hues like Hunter Green, digitally-inspired shades of violet and pink, soft terracottas, and optimistic yellow.
Pantone’s Color of the Year – Living Coral
Sleek mid-century modern styles continue to prevail, punctuated by gold, silver and black matter metallic accents; bold graphic area rugs, and sculptural lighting. Other major trends include Asian influences, bright and muted florals, plush velvets, and raw materials such as rattan and reclaimed wood. Ready to snap up a great deal? Secondhand and vintage stores are bursting at the seams with discarded furniture and home accessories, thanks to Marie Kondo’s popular decluttering craze.
However you choose to curate your home, DTLA is the ultimate destination for the best Interior Design Trends of 2019!
