These Are The 5 Interior Design Styles You’ll See Everywhere This 2019
Every year-end and new-year, people get excited to get on with all the trendy and up-and-coming fashion, travel destinations, and interior design. As the saying goes, “out with the old, in with the new.” However, there are some trends that are simply ingenious and timeless, like these four design styles that have been the craze since the 20s, the 50s, and the 70s, and one that’s been a recurring theme in more recent years. In 2019, we’ll see more of these styles whether as accents or as an overall design for our living spaces as we seek to incorporate more delicacy, individuality, sustainability, and whimsy into our lives.
1 | Neo Deco
A lot of the interior design trends in 2019 take cues from Art Deco that was the biggest design trend in 1920s and 1930s—the rounded and smooth corners, the geometric patterns, the glass, chrome, and velvet materials, to name a few—but with an updated contemporary twist that’s fresh, colorful, and playful, with a minimalist glam bend. Interior designers call it Neo Deco or the new Art Deco.
2 | Boho Chic
There are no rules in the earlier version of the 1970s Boho Chic design style, the very carefree and daring nature that charmed interior design enthusiasts. However, the new version of this design style has a cleaner and brighter twist, a mix of vintage and modern cues.
3 | Retro Glam
Another 1970s influence, the Retro Glam, will be more apparent this year. Expect to see warm, earthy palettes, soft and unconventional textures and materials like velvet, tweed, leather, marble, metal, brass, and teak wood. Whimsical and abstract silhouettes, and vintage accessories make a retro glam-inspired space.
4 | Midcentury Italian
Scandinavian midcentury design style is known to highlight simple design and bright, mostly white, hues. However, with midcentury Italian design that we will be seeing more this year, silhouettes have a more luxurious look and feel, and colors are bolder, deeper, moodier, and richer.
5 | Sustainable Design
Sustainable or responsible design isn’t really limited to a specific design style. It is highly relative to the materials used and the processes involved in designing, constructing, and furnishing spaces. This design is most definitely about choosing to have a more positive environmental impact, and it is ultimately the design we should all consider having in our abodes. Reclaimed, reused, recycled, innovative, and environmentally conscious pieces are preferred in this design.
