This last year has seen a massive resergence in 70s inspired rattan furniture. A boho feel, with a relaxed vibe was seen everywhere, and is still very much a popular choice.

This year we are seeing a lot more woven furniture incorporating Japanese influences. The pale wood tones are being mixed with black for a more striking look. This can be seen on cabinets and screens, again with Japanese influences.

The fine weave we are seeing creates a lovely pattern and texture on table tops and door fronts, perfect for a statement piece. Don’t go overboard with this, as the more stripped back the better. Let the furniture do the talking, so just invest in one or two items to tie into your space.

This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.

Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.

Wallpaper from westonebathrooms.com

An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.

If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.

An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.

It may not be a choice of colour that jumps out at you, but beige is to take over our lives and homes during 2019. No longer is it seen as dull, lifeless and dated, beige is actually a warming & calming colour which acts as a nuetral backdrop to bolder shades.

Layer up different shades of beige with accents of brass, gold, wood and additional colours of black and white, creating a very collated room.

Bedding & salt pot from hm.com

There are so many accessories and soft furnishing options to bring a bit of beige into your home. H&M Home has jumped on this trend and has a huge choice of cushions, throws and bedding to add a hint to a room
