2019 Interior Design Trends

Here’s what you can expect to see from Interior Designers in 2019

Design Trend 2019 Natural Wood

Natural Wood

Crisp and clean white kitchens have been the trend over the last several years, but they’re slowly giving way to a more natural look.

Natural, light wood surfaces give kitchens a more relaxed feel.  And if you like Scandinavian interiors, you’re in luck.  Natural wood will take a cultural cue from them.

Design Trend 2019 - Curvy furniture


Instead of straight lines and angular pieces, curves will grace many of 2019’s furniture pieces, giving them a rounder, softer shape.

But this doesn’t go for just comfy love seats, armchairs, and sofas. Curves will be a design feature for mirrors and frames, too.


The ultimate leader of color trends, Pantone, introduced a vibrant green color, appropriately named “Greenery” back in 2017.  But this color will be sticking around well into 2019.


Plants, plants, plants

Plants have the power to transform just about any living space. Depending on the plant, the room can become an elegant, welcoming, relaxing and even friendly place.

So, whether you opt for fake greenery or household plants, it’s one way your home will be on trend next year.

Stand-out ceilings

2019 ceilings will make you want to look up.  That’s because ceilings will be statement pieces all on their own.  It’s a fun way to make the room super interesting without having to look at dizzying walls covered in busy designs.

Wall suspensions

Gallery walls and framed prints will take a back seat to wall hangings.  Wall hangings aren’t particularly new, but the trend for 2019 will be geometric color block hangings.

These can offer a minimal and modern alternative to the typical bohemian wall hangings.

  Earth Tones

It comes as no surprise that earthy colors will dominate 2019 home decor.  After all, earth colors are consistent with four other decor predictions: natural wood, plants, and sage green.

Expect to see warm beige shades, various green hues and more.

Terrazzo walls

Just as statements moved from the wall to the ceilings, a popular 1980s floor covering is moving from the ground to the wall. Back in the 80s, terrazzo was a cement flooring filled in with a mix of random bits of debris.

Now, a white wall is the backdrop for soft pastel spots and blotches. And walls won’t be the only home area decked out with terrazzo. Other terrazzo pieces include lighting fixtures, too.  Find this selection on Graham & Brown.

Matte Black Fixtures - Design Trend 2019

Matte black

Sage green isn’t the only color trend coming up. According to the World’s Global Style Network (WGSN), matte black is set to be 2019’s “it” color.   See this matte black kitchen faucet on Overstock.

Matte Black Walls - Design Trend 2019

Black walls

If you’re not sure whether it will work in your home, consider having a black wall where there is ample light. This prevents the room from feeling too dark.

Another way to keep the room feeling lively and relevant is to style it with bright decor, furniture, and flooring.

Multitasking mirrors

Mirrors are going to do more than show off you and your beautiful home.  Mirrors will start to become active members of the ever-evolving smart home movement.  See Samsung’s Hidden Tv that looks like a mirror.

Retro vibes

Designers and interior decorators will lean towards retro design in 2019, too.

So, along with curved and rounded furniture, you’ll see plenty of warmth and softness in colors, fabrics, and textures.

Sustainable fabrics

Sustainable fabrics, including animal-free leathers and worm-free silks, will gain traction next year.

So, vegans can celebrate, and so can everyone else who is committed to creating a more sustainable living experience both for themselves and for everyone else on the planet – including animals, too!

Multifunctional & Compact furniture

Inspired by nomadic lifestyle, one furniture trend for 2019 are pieces that are compact and multifunctional.  They’re artistic and flexible – perfect for the minimal, on-the-go lifestyles, which tend to take up smaller spaces.  See this Murphy Bed with desk on Wayfair.

Marble-like surfaces and finishes

Using a special technique involving tempered, extra light glass, these Liquefy tables look like fine marble. And this look may sneak into 2019, too.

Sure, you might not be able to get your hands on these designer pieces, but other brands will definitely hop on the bandwagon and make this trend available.  See this table at MoMA Design Store.


Saturated Red

In general, you’ll notice that bolder, braver colors are making a comeback. Whereas earlier interiors were dominated by crisp whites and gentle pastels, colors like green, red and black are making their way into 2019 home interiors. That’s not to say that white and pastel walls won’t endure. It’s just that these bold colors are now allowed and welcome.  See this room on the designer site:

So, you can say goodbye to soft and subtle millennial pink. That’s because the rich, saturated color of red is stepping in to take over. It will add an instant pop of unmissable color to just about every room.  Consider using red for chairs, side tables, lamps, statement walls, throws and even wall hangings.  For me this is reminiscent of the late 1980’s for sure!

Design Trend 2019 Tribal Rugs

Ethnic & Tribal Patterns

Earthy colors and natural wood surfaces are making a comeback in 2019. And what better way to decorate these toned down spaces than with vibrant ethnic and tribal patterns? They’ll look especially bold when they’re made with black, white and caramel colors.  See this tribal rug on Wayfair.

So, there you have it The Design Trends for 2019. Which ones are you most excited about?
