With a new year comes the urge to start afresh, move forward and improve. When it comes to interior design, this time of year is perfect for giving you the encouragement and opportunity to update and reinvigorate your home. So, if you are thinking of revitalising your interiors, why not take a look at our summary of some of the upcoming biggest design trends of 2018 for inspiration?

Block colour splashes

Expect injections of bold colour throughout the home to be popular this year. Creating visual interest in any room, restricting colours to splashes keeps this addition from overwhelming a space. Think a feature armchair, colour pop cushions or statement blinds. Key to this style is the solidity of the colour – keep it in homogeneous blocks rather than fussy patterns. On-trend tones to go for include lively yellows, deep oranges, warm reds and pigmented purples; Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2018 ‘Ultra Violet’ is itself a strong, striking purple.

Minimalism is still very much in style for 2018. Clean lines, pared back furnishings and geometric shapes make this a cool, collected and chic look in any room of the home. This look relies on a lack of clutter so make sure you incorporate clever storage into your room to cope. Don’t think this look will be plain and boring though – use a variety of materials, textures and fabrics with a few feature items, such as artwork or light fixtures, to add interest.

Modern retro

There is a definite retro influence in interior design for the coming year. Whether its artistically shaped sofas or curved corner kitchen units, the nod to the 60s and 70s can be introduced without overwhelming your home with psychedelia! This is a fun trend which combines vintage style with a modern colour palette and high quality materials.


Bringing nature indoors is a popular theme this year, with natural influences creating a calm and tranquil interior. To achieve this look, pexels-photo-96403try and source furniture and fittings which are made from natural materials – for example, wooden Venetian blinds, stone tiling or suede cushions. Wood of any kind will be plentiful and stone, linen, faux furs, suede and burlap can all be used to add variety to the scheme. This is a very adaptable trend which can be entirely personalised to your tastes and home, from clean minimal bedrooms with splashes of plant life greenery to cosy bedrooms full of earthy tones, wooden furnishings and faux fur finishing flourishes.
