Key Interior Design Trends for 2019 Spring/Summer

2019 is the year of sustainability and natural materials which has come just in time for the upcoming spring and summer months. Of course, there are some gorgeous colours to embrace too, but when it comes to decorating the home, the emphasis on choosing designs that are classic and longer lasting, rather than trends that will quickly become outdated. Take a look at some of the key trends for 2019 spring/summer below.

70s Retro Fusion

This nostalgic trend celebrates Mid-century interiors and designs form a bygone era. 1970’s interior trends are back and re-imagined for the modern home. Inspiration from a decade of style, bold prints and daring designs has made this trend perfect for the brightening spring and summer seasons. Don’t worry, this trend has left the psychedelic wallpaper in the past and focuses more on contrasting textures, woven wall hangings and a splash of daring colours – perfect to prepare for just in time for spring.
Natural materials such as bamboo, wicker and rattan are being championed and paired with plenty of greenery, luxe layers and colourful tasselled detailing. 

An earthy palette and geometric prints can also be incorporated within this trend which are complemented by rich accent colours and statement lighting. When opting for this trend, be sure to follow the ‘less is more’ philosophy and be careful not to over clutter.


Sustainability is an overriding theme this year as more and more home interior brands are making eco-conscious choices. Brands are looking into new ways to re-use materials, such as paper, fibre, foam and plastic in the aim to give them a new life.

Space Themed

No, we’re not talking about a children’s bedroom. With the launch of projects such as SpaceX and Virgin Galactic making space travel a possibility in the not-so-distant future, the latest interior trends are looking to the sky for inspiration. From start constellations and vast galaxies, to rich midnight blue tones, this 2019 trend explores a decadently dark colour scheme with all the intrigue of the night sky perfect for late summer evenings as the sun begins to set.


For the first time this year, French Connection have launched a bedding range, and it perfectly fits into this spring/summer trend of tactile materials, based around slow living with the emphasis on natural resources.

This look is predominantly about creating a cosy feel by mixing texture and pattern through the use of accessories like tactile throws and cushions. Wove materials are key for Spring 2019, particularly across contemporary furniture and decorative items and textiles.

Alternative Patterns

Continuing from last season, this look is used as a counteraction from the minimalist look which has become hugely popular over the past few years, pattern is super key this season. The main rule is to keep the colour palette the same tonally, so everything has the same softness, and nothing stands out more than the other.  Use plain furniture as a blank canvas to allow room patterned cushions, wallpaper and rugs.

Mustard has become the go-to shade over the warmer months, particularly in our homes. It was once used as way of adding small pops of colour to a room however this trend is seen to be moving towards larger investment pieces of furniture as a way of adding a bold and refreshing burst of colour to a living space.

It’s a versatile shade that works brilliantly with millennial pink, teal and indigo blue and of course, crisp white if you want to create more of a fresh look.

This uplifting trend will work beautifully over the spring/summer season and is a joyous celebration of nature. The botanical prints are delivered in a softer format which is diluted by a desaturated, almost pastel, colour palette.

Bold wallpapers such as tropic leaf designs are going from strength to strength this year and vibrant bold prints can breathe new life into rooms, no matter the size.

This summery botanical trend is a great testament that our love for nature and sustainability continues to proliferate.

Refined Glamour

The new 2019 glam designs are embracing a more sophisticated and less sheen look. Luxury materials such as pewter, marble and velvet can be combined to create beautiful, fine decorative details. Fringing is a huge component of this trend from lampshades to wall hangings and cushions – fringing should be added to you glamourous summer renovation.

Dusky rose is a primary colour within this trend and works beautifully with minimal neutral tones, marble, velvet brass materials and smoked glass and copper fittings.
