When it comes to our homes, there is nothing worse than having it look dated before you’ve even finished the remodel or renovation. The goal with any home should be to make it your own with items that make you happy (or spark joy as the kids these days call it); and allow you to function at your best because the furniture items you’ve picked for your home function in the way(s) you need them to.
When it comes to embracing “what’s on trend”, it doesn’t mean you should go rush out and buy everything you want, it means find the trend that speaks to you and embrace it for your home. With that in mind, let’s look at the three trend themes dominating the 2019 landscape.
Nothing says 2019 like a bold statement in home décor. Bold colours, bold colour combinations, and bold or unique shapes (including oversized!) are making a BIG BOLD statement in 2019.
This living room embraces a bold blue on the walls, a luxurious velvet chair, and a subtle round table to complete this look.
This NYC PR agency meeting room is embracing the 2019 furniture trends in a big way. With a uniquely shaped sofa in the luxe fabric du jour “velvet”; this fabulous room has all the glam it needs. A round glass table in the centre brings the whole room together.
This room adds a bold stripe to the wall and ceiling and a bold area rug to the floor. These two unique features bring a lot of personality to the room and while “on trend”, it definitely does not look ‘trendy’, which is a lovely balance.
Bold colours, bold combinations of fabrics, and unique art & décor make this master bedroom a welcoming place with lots of personality.
The second big trend theme for 2019 in home furniture and home décor is “luxe” which includes luxurious fabrics, textures, and furniture. The epitome of this trend is a giant bold luxurious headboard in a bold velvet.
Luxe of course can mean many things when it comes to 2019 home furniture trends, especially in bedrooms. Luxe is a feeling of comfort and luxury, but also a luxurious combination of fabrics and textures as well as mixed materials.
The unique shaped bench at the foot of the bed, the great combination of fabrics, textures, and sheens, and the oversized bed frame all speak to what’s trending in master bedrooms in 2019.
This Miami home is everything “luxe”! It embraces the outside, unique shapes, unique textures, and combines them effortlessly to make this room very on-trend and timeless.
As part of the luxury, we’re seeing a big trend for 2019 in all rooms, including the bathroom, with easily inserted electric fireplaces. By adding a functional element of warmth, it adds the luxurious ambiance any bedroom, living room, or bathroom could want.
This bathroom fireplace makes the room both cozy and luxe at the same time.
As so does this one, how luxurious….
The final trend theme for 2019 is “space”. Not outer space or anything astrological, we’re talking physical space in the form of space saving by selecting uniquely shaped furniture, or multi-functional items. Just look to each of the previous examples of luxe and bold themed trends and you’ll see space has somehow made its way into most of them!
This coffee table turned desk gives the person who works from home occasionally, the best home office without having a dedicated space for it.
This kitchen banquette helps keep space use in check while adding a great place to sit, to store stuff, and to decorate with seasonal throw pillows!
Even in this smaller sized space, the right furniture (and not too much of it!) combined with a great mixture of bold colours, luxurious fabrics, and uniquely shaped furniture make this a winning combination.
This fabulous curved sofa is ALL. THE. THINGS. Isn’t is fabulous?
