Citrus orange? Taxi cab yellow? Just some of the must-have colours for 2019! As homeowners become more confident with trying bold colours, this trend shows no signs of slowing down in the New Year. We’ve handpicked the top ss19 interiors trends, so you don’t have to. Whether you are looking to inject a pop of colour with a feature wall or want to make a statement with stripes or scales, here is six trends you need to know about…
First up is a sweet and earthy new colour trend which has entered our homes, thanks to Dulux, who have revealed Spiced Honey as its Colour of the Year for 2019. It is a versatile and sophisticated shade, the warm tones of amber and rich blends of caramel are the perfect neutral update to your home, complementing most materials and styles.
When only a precise shade will do, you can look no further than Bisque’s bespoke range of radiators, where the choices of colours are endless with its colour-match service. Bisque Classic in Textured Quartz in caramel – www.bisque.co.uk – price from £426.00.
Traditionally an uncommon choice in bathrooms, stripes are on the rise. This popular trend can add a huge impact in a super-chic way, bringing a sense of energy to your interiors.
Using vertical stripes, a room can appear taller, and horizontal stripes can elongate. This design doesn’t have to be applied to just walls and floors. Stripes can also be featured on blinds, shower interiors, or even small bathroom ornaments, for a subtler finish. Like this stylish shower design from Debbie Travis, featuring the Victoria + Albert Baths Tubo 20 – www.vandabaths.com – price from £2,855.00 is a great option if you are looking to make the shower the focal point of the bathroom.
Starting in 2016, one of the most traditional materials, brass, made its way back into our homes adding a warm yet industrial feel through light fittings and home furnishings such as metal trays. The fashion for brass continued into 2017 and 2018 when it was mixed with marble and other coloured materials. For 2019, prepare to see brass taps aplenty.
Adding a warm, welcoming shine to your bathroom or kitchen, brass taps can also give a sharp edge to timeless marble interiors. As well as the industrial look, brassware gives off a cool and edgy tone to any interior. To create the ultimate stylish bathroom design, brass taps can be paired well with this gorgeous Victoria + Albert Baths Amiata 55 basin – www.vandabaths.com – price from £500.00 – designed by Lindye Galloway + Ryan Garvin Photography.
Those looking for a bold colour update this season can look to citrus orange. A dominant shade at this season’s catwalks, this trend has strutted straight into our homes. While not everyone is bold enough to redecorate in this daring hue, a condensed shot of orange in the form of tiles or accessories will also add that extra oomph without going overboard. Inspired by the bright hues of the spectacular Italian Riviera, create a focal point in your kitchen with this Smeg Portofino range cooker in orange – www.smeguk.com – price from £2,399.00.
Mermaid/fish scale shaped designs are taking over our interiors. From bathroom tiles to stylishly designed chairs, we’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for this under the sea trend that includes fan shaped scallop patterns, fish-scales, curvy eye-shaped T-drops, ornamental quatrefoils or the simple but effective hexagon. These shapes create a statement in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom – on both walls and through objects. A beautiful bathtub creates a statement in the bathroom, sitting in front of a striking scales feature wall, like the bathroom design below by BFDO Architects + Francis Dzikowski featuring the Victoria + Albert Baths Richmond bath – www.vandabaths.com – price from £1,670.oo.
Taxi cab yellow
Lastly, fresh off the catwalk, taxi cab yellow is everywhere. Perfect for creating beautiful, bright and bold statements in the home, something as simple as adding a yellow radiator to your bedroom or a yellow fridge to your kitchen can really update the whole room’s look and feel. Bisque radiators help compliment and enhance any interior, be it traditional, contemporary or anywhere in between. With yellow being a popular colour for ss19, it will brighten up even the most minimalist spaces. Choosing yellow for the radiator is a way for consumers to inject colour and personality into their home. Bisque cast iron radiator in yellow – www.bisque.co.uk – price from £426.00.
