Interior Design Trends 2018

We would like to wish a very Happy New Year to all our customers. We hope 2018 is a great one for you. To help get you off to a good start we have some of our favourite colours and interior design trends that will be popping up in 2018 to share with you.

Heart Wood

Heart Wood is the colour of the year 2018 from Dulux. It is a warming pink with cosy and relaxing qualities. The colour palettes to compliment Heart Wood are beautiful, and will work well in any home to create a comforting environment.

Wall Art

If Pinterest is anything to go by we can see that wall art has become very popular and is believed to get ever more so in 2018. Great wall art needs a great wall paint to compliment it. We would suggest deeper shades of greys like Genesis from Colourtrend’s Contemporary Collection and blues like Gatsby Blue from Dulux Moda to make the art really stand out. You could also use a light white colour for a classic look.

Mixed Metals

We have loved golds, we have loved brass, but this year we are loving all the metals all together. Having mixed metalics in your home will be a big hit this year. The colours of the metals work really well with warm greys such as Plummett (272) from Farrow & Ball and purples like Frosted Fig from Dulux Moda. Add some textures like velvets and faux furs for extra luxury.

Go Dark

We have seen a lot of light colours and whites in recent years in our homes with the influence of Scandinavian design but this year we are turning down the lights and going dark. We love the warming dark purples of Brinjal (222) from Farrow & Ball and Amaranth from Dulux Moda.

Go Dark


Natural furnishings are taking centre stage for the New Year. Their warm colours and durability make them great features in the home to suit any interiors. Light wood works really well with soft light colours such as Pigeon (25) from Farrow & Ball.  Dark wood is complimented by richer colours like Peacock Blue from Colourtrend’s Historic Collection


Green is the New Grey

That’s right, we’re saying goodbye to the much loved Greige and saying hello to green. Add dark shades of green to your home for warmth and luxury. We love Studio Green (93) from Farrow & Ball and Sweet Caper from Colourtrend’s Contemporary Collection.

    Wall painting is really difficult to work. Most of the people are confused to choose the right color for the wall. Your blog is very helpful. I like your blog. Great information.
