Here at Bobbie Burns we’ve got some top tips to switch up your interiors for the new year and begin 2018 in the most stylish of ways. We’ve included some predictions for the upcoming new year ahead to keep abreast of the latest interior design trends, and also some styling inspiration in the form of simple changes you can make to update your home! Read on to find out what we’re excited to see more of in 2018, and what to leave behind in 2017.
Trends change seasonally, not just in fashion, but in all aspects of styling. You may not have the budget to completely renovate your kitchen or bathroom this year, but there are a few touches you can add to your home that are purse-friendly and can make all the difference…
We predict to see a lot of statement art pieces in 2018. With gallery walls slowly declining at the end of 2017, we think the focus of your walls will be one or two key pieces per room. 2018 brings with it a more curated look for rooms, as opposed to piling every print available on top of each other in one corner of the wall. We say out with the chaotic gallery walls and in with a much more classic and subtle vibe – which should emulate a sense of calm and wellbeing, that’s the aim anyway! Just a side note, these don’t have to be giant, extravagant pieces, in fact we’ve spotted some beautifully quirky prints from cost-friendly retailers on the high street too. If your more into your Rankin than your Monet, then rejoice as moody, deep photography is set to be a home styling trend for 2018. Leave the typography style prints and wall stickers in 2017 and say hello to more interesting, elegant and thought-provoking pieces for the year ahead. Slogan framed prints and accessories have truly had their day and we welcome fresh new artwork into the new year with wide open arms.
Rose gold and copper has been a huge trend in homeware and interiors for the past few years. Although copper-bottomed pans are definitely a firm staple in our kitchen here at Bobbie Burns, unfortunately themeware has had its day. For all you copper lovers out there, do not fear! 2018 sees a comeback of the classic gold and even more rustic; brass decorative ho. Adopting this more classy and elegant look of gold touches around the house you’ll probably find matches your furniture a lot better and ties in seamlessly with the rest of your interior styling.
Don’t be afraid of adding gold into your home, as long as you avoid the bright, harsh and over-polished gold effects, your home will thank you. Beautiful, timeless and classic – gold isn’t going anywhere.
Herringbone parquet floors
Herringbone flooring is set to be one of the biggest interior trends for 2018. A classic look that hides a multitude of sins (such as dirt and pet hair!) – herringbone is timeless. If you’re renovating and want to incorporate this style of flooring into your home, we’d advise to go for a subtle medium brown shade, and steer away from anything too dark. Although we used to love the white painted Scandi-chic floorboards, the upkeep of maintaining the pristine appearance of them is just too much. So we’re looking forward to welcoming a warmer and more textured, patterned look to our floors in 2018.
In 2017 we saw millennial pink everywhere. For a fresh take on the shade, why not opt for an apricot peach. With a similar youthful and soft glow of colour but with more warmth than pink, peach is perfect for home accessories. Cushions and throws look gorgeous in this subtle and inviting shade, and peach is set to be huge for 2018. We’ve always known coral hues to pop out at the beginning of spring, but a more muted tone of the shade is set to be a big thing for the year ahead.
