5 homeware trends in 2019 that will last

  1. Stonewashed linen

    From bedlinen to tablecloths and napkins stonewashed linen is a trend that isn’t set to go anywhere fast. The best thing about it in my humble opinion is that ironing said materials is completely unnecessary. Embrace that crumpled look! I particularly like lots of linen in the same tone to give a layered warmth to a bedroom or dining room. It can be pricey to have lots of linen – particularly with bedding – so do keep your eye out in the sales. A thrifty alternative to achieve a very similar look is to go with washed cotton instead.

  2. Decorative plate

    There are so many examples of gorgeous decorative plates out there – from one-off original Luke Edward Hall pieces to unusual charity shop finds. Use them to serve canapes, eat your crumpet off, hang on a  wall or place nonchalantly on a shelf. They can be a great, relative inexpensive way to update an area.

  3. Midcentury modern

    I am not sure this has ever gone out of fashion but it will continue to be a key trend for 2019 and beyond. From lots of greenery to eames armchairs the market is flooded with a plethora of options for you to choose from. Ikea is a great place to start for inspiration – as is (as ever) Pinterest.

  4. Velvet

    Velvet is a trend that doesn’t look like it is going anywhere. Brightly coloured sofas in velvet can instantly transform a room and update the space – although the best ones do come at quite a steep price tag. We got ours from Swoon Editions and it was probably one of our most expensive things in the house. Totally worth it though! Headboards are also a good velvet option and The Rose in Deal is the perfect place to look at for inspiration. For a cheaper nod to the trend opt for a cushion – Matalan and H&M are my go to places for them.

  5. Line Art

The volume of line art available on the market has drastically increased over the last year and looks set to continue as a trend for a lot longer. I would always recommend buying art/prints that you love. Don’t worry too much about trends, value etc. When you really are drawn to something it can last you a lifetime. You can always update the frame to modernise it. Some of my favourite art at the moment includes Frances Glory Costelloe and James Wilson.

  1. I’m in the process of moving into an apartment ( in Brighton, actually! ) and this post is exactly what I needed for my interiors research, so I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I’m especially excited to hear that line art is going to be a staple this year – it’s one of my favourite styles!

    have a lovely Sunday!
