S/S ‘19 Trend Forecast
Like to keep your finger on the interior world’s pulse? These are the trends set to soar this Spring/Summer 2019 - whether you go the whole hog or just adapt some smaller pieces, you’ll be sure to be ahead of the game...
Texture is big news this season! Furniture has a natural handmade feel with materials such a rattan and wicker taking centre stage. Textiles like cushions and rugs take a playful role with lots of embellishments, raw edges and appliqué details – all irresistible to the touch. Whatever the colour palette, mixing textures can instantly create another layer of decoration and interest.
Scandi neutrals are making way for bolder hues. It doesn’t mean our love affair with paler shades has ended, but you’ll notice a significant leap toward rich jewel tones in bigger pieces like furniture and walls - in essence, it’s all a little braver and bolder. Moody interiors are more popular than ever, too, with brooding violet, navy and striking emerald green all key colours for 2018.

How to Style:
Bold colour needs a few weighty neutrals to help ground it. Blacks and dark browns work particuarly well with the jewel tones. Pair a bold velvet sofa with a dark wooden coffee table and side tables, alongside a rich and textural Moroccan leather pouf (ideal for extra seating too).
The jewel tones also look amazing with geometric metallics, so get some mirrors, accessories and accents running through to give it all a lift.
Travel always influences interiors trends, with this spring following that pattern. Earthy shades of terracotta and ochre feature on global-inspired prints, and they pair beautifully with inky indigo. The patterns, materials and textiles all have a natural, raw feel to them, making them extremely tactile and cosy. Try mixing small scale Ikat prints with larger paisley-inspired designs and bringing together influences from different countries. Where possible, buy traditional handicrafts over reproductions.
How to Style:
Neutral schemes can be given a huge boost with some carefully-selected soft furnishings. You can keep the colour scheme light and airy, but stop it from looking bland with the addition of a beautiful mudcloth lumbar pillow. The monochrome mudcoth pillows can be used to bring pattern without disturbing the visual harmony. Haus have a brand new, but very limited stock collection of mudcloth pillows to buy, should you want to recreate this beautiful and easy to achieve look. Maybe you favour the dark side more? We love this dramatic bedroom from Joyce Pickens of JDPInteriors, with glorious brass elements and lots of tribal elements.
What is mudcloth? Mudcloth or bogolan is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. They are known for their beautiful patterns - Just one of the many things that makes traditional mud cloth so special is that each piece has a story to tell. Even the arrangement of the symbols on the cloth reveals something secret about the intended meaning, and this language of the cloth was passed down from mother to daughter.
