Interior Colour Trends in 2019
With 2019 around the corner, we ask which Interior colour palettes will be in fashion beyond the New Year, with a close look at tiling styles. When choosing your engineered oak flooring, the surrounding colours and patterns will have relevance to the overall impact of your room. The floorboards need to complement the walls, furniture and feel of the room they reside in. In this feature on colour and tiling trends, we collaborate with Artisans of Devizes.
Mix wooden floors with pastel power
Pastel power is set to make its mark in 2019. Pastels are those candy colours, the pale and pretty pinks and beautiful blues. From dusky rose to mint greens, the versatility of pastel shades will ensure that they work in any room and in any interior design scheme.
To make the most of this gentle yet invigorating colour palette you can mix the shades with more classic tones and use them as leverage to highlight areas in your home, for example, a statement oak floor. The traditional beauty of oak brings an essence of stately quality to a room whilst the colours soften the look, lighten the space and spawn endless possibilities with the choice of furniture – whether contemporary or classic.
Inject some fun into your kitchen with a blush Penny Mosaic tile or pop classic Bonheur ceramic tiles, in a soft rose finish, in your cloakroom. As a rule of thumb for pastels, always dress the room with bright whites.
Bring the outdoors in
This year we saw the design trend for greenery sweep the interiors scene and it shows no signs of abating. From gorgeous greens to rustic woods, this is one trend that will still hold its place in interior design, come spring summer ‘19.
Mix hand crafted wooden flooring and wooden furniture with touches of green to create an inviting and warm space in your home.
In your bathroom, mix-up green tiles with a clashing copper bath to tap into the maximalist trend. Maximalist Interiors rely on bold colours, lavish interiors and a large dose of glamour. Oak flooring fits into this trend perfectly. Deeper, darker wooden tones really offset this style beautifully. Darker, intricate and detailed patterned floors such as Versailles and Chantilly designs are well suited to the Maximalist concept.
Take a look at the Lily Pad Eden tile in a gorgeous green to really bring the outdoors in.
New tile shapes
Tiles can really make a difference to a room but not only in terms of trending colour schemes, as diverse tile shapes are gaining interest. Homeowners and designers can now take advantage of the endless design options that are available, thanks to the increase in popularity of tiles in all shapes and sizes.
Whether you want to opt for beautiful and delicate Penny Mosaic tiles, or you’re looking to embrace the trend for Scallop tiles, new tiling shapes are widely anticipated.
While you might think that focusing on trending tile shapes will only bring about a modern feel, the end impact has more to do with the material and textures that you use in your home. The beauty of these trending shapes is that you can give a room a thoroughly contemporary feel, or a more rustic vibe, depending on the products that you work with.
Hexagon tiles are certainly having a moment. The best-selling Lily Pad Encaustic tile works well, blended with a Slim Herringbone tile, or if you’re looking for a more polished luxurious feel, opt for Aliseo Hexagon mosaics, which come in a striking marble.
