The past year also saw sage and ultra-violet colours gaining momentum along with bold floral wallpapers.There’s no escaping trends. Whether you live by them or feel totally unaffected, from popular paint colours to retro furniture choices, everything designed for our homes is influenced by a wider trend.In contrast, 2019 is expected to be more about aesthetic appeal, greenery and natural swimming pools.We won't tell you to ditch the stuff that speaks to your soul, changing trends be damned. But if you're itching for a design upgrade and aren't sure where to start, ask yourself if your home is sporting any of these looks that have worn out their welcome.
1. Gallery walls
When it comes to a beautifully realized and installed gallery wall for any space, there’s tried and true methods and routes you should take in before attempting to create your plan of action before you begin. Slightly more important than frame selection, sourcing art and photos to install can be more challenging than you imagined as everything won’t come together in one fell swoop. It’s simply impossible.Color plays a key role in almost every aspect of design. So when taking your gallery wall to the next level, think of color first as it will most likely be the main line that ties all of your different elements together.
2. Artisanal accessories
Anything that looks like the work of a detail-obsessed artisan will be right at home in 2019.
Whether it's a handcrafted headboard, a standout chair, or a custom metal-framed mirror, a few artisanal elements will keep things interesting without the pressure to commit an entire space to the look.
3. Industrial kitchens
Make your kitchen as efficient and functional as a professional kitchen with well thought out cabinets and storage. That way, all your stuff is close to hand. One distinctive element of industrial kitchens is to have crockery, utensils and equipment on display. While this might seem more utilitarian than attractive, when done properly and kept tidy, rows of gleaming glasses or crockery can look really impressive. Industrial spaces are all about honoring the architectural bones of a building, and perhaps more importantly, playing with proportion and scale. Since this style of design comes most naturally to converted warehouses or old telephone offices and factories, there's typically an open plan involved. Think dramatically high ceilings and large windows all for one expansive unit that incorporates everything from the entryway to the kitchen, the dining area, and the living room.
4. Word art
We know—we can't believe it either, but the word art trend is still happening. In 2019, however, the pros are determined to make it finally stop.

7. Copper accents
Rose gold was one of 2018’s most used decor trend, yet for 2019 we are expecting to see less rose gold and more copper accents, along with a mixture of other metals. With it’s red and orange tones and overall earthy hue, copper is a much-needed breath of fresh air for the new year.

Among the most compelling reasons to dive into animal rugs? They feel equal parts traditional and edgy, making them easy to integrate into virtually any space.
9. Trims & Fringe
Insiders know that there’s no quicker way to chic things up than a bolt of fringe. “Fringe and trim bring feminine chic and ‘decorator polish’ to statement pieces,” who appreciates a bit of fringe and trim on anything from sofas to napkins. To make fringe feel extra lush, pair it with punchy-colored upholstery, or even printed upholstery for a true maximalist moment.

Richer hues throughout your home can make your more muted furnishings and decorative decor pop. Lookout for dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and organic greens.SS
