Just like your wardrobe, your home can enjoy a bit of a spring update, and with the interior design and décor trends we’re seeing for 2019; it definitely won’t be hard to incorporate a few of your favourites.
The key in “décor trends” is to take those you love and toss the rest. Make your home your own by incorporating your unique style, family favourites, cherished heirlooms, and a few fresh updates so it doesn’t start to feel stale.
Trend #1: Sustainable Materials & Shopping
Think less is more with this trend. You don’t need 42 throw pillows or an overstuffed living room with too much furniture. Focus on what matters most and buy, use, and incorporate those things. Upcycle furniture to reduce what goes in the trash, or choose products that have been manufactured sustainably. Locally made Canadian furniture is a great option if this trend is one for you.
Trend #2: Nature-inspired
Bring the outside in! Add plants to your decor, blur the lines between outdoors and in with your furniture as well as through your fabric choices. We’re also seeing a big resurgence in floral fabrics and wallpapers.
Trend #3: Embrace Your Curves
Women have known this for years and we’re glad to see the interior design world has caught on. Curves are in! Curved furniture and uniquely shaped items are making a big statement in 2019.

Trend #4: BIG and Bold
Patterned and bold backsplashes (goodbye boring white tiles) are back. So are BIG beds – upholstered headboards or giant four-poster beds, giving you a sense of comfort and cozy. We’re also seeing BIG bold colour choices (like black for a bathroom!) with walls going from basic white to literally everything in the rainbow. When it comes to art; more is more and the bigger, the better. Forget the gallery wall, how about a GIANT piece of art that dominates the entire wall?
Trend #5: Mix ‘n Match
This is definitely a trend we see sticking around for a while. It works so well and really allows you to make your home your own. We’re seeing mixed materials, furniture styles, fabrics, colours, patterns, and even metals (goodbye entirely brassy rooms!).
These two rooms show us how individual this trend is. Both are mixing colours, fabrics, styles, and yet are completely unique.
Trend #6: Acrylic
Acrylic furniture has been coming into the interior design scene for the past few years and for good reason. Acrylic is almost essential for small spaces since it gives us usable space without crowing our sightlines. Acrylic is also great as a foundation for your home decor to build up layers (see mix and match!) with vases, coffee table books, flowers, and more. This is one material trend we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon.
Trend #7: Comfort is King
This is a trend we should embrace forever. Comfort is indeed King (or Queen!). Think comfortable sofas, chairs you want to spend hours in, soft carpeting underfoot, rooms that make you want to stay, linger, and enjoy.
This room incorporates many of the trends we’re seeing for 2019 in home décor, upholstered bed, wallpaper, bold use of colour, and oozing comfort.
Which trend do you want to embrace in 2019?
