Interior Designs Trends for 2019

When purchasing one of the Grayhawk new homes in Columbus GA, it’s an exciting time in which you get to put your personal stamp on your property, inside and out. While you can always get free help from the Grayhawk Design Studio, it helps to have some ideas in advance of how you want to decorate your home. Colors, finishes, and styles can be long-term classics or annual trends. How you choose to use them is up to you, but if you’re looking to add a few cutting edge design aspects, here’s what’s going to be big in 2019.

Perhaps as a nod to the 350th anniversary of the death of Rembrandt — which is being celebrated internationally — the color of 2019 is Nightwatch green. Deeper and moodier than the traditional hunter or bottle green, this color packs a punch without being loud. If you’ve got the space and the nerve, it can create a stunning room if used on the walls, with lighter accents to break up the darkness. You could continue the art theme and use the colors of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earing for your accent colors: pale blue, mustardy gold, and of course, pearl or pale white or cream colors.

You don’t have to use the Nightwatch green in a staid, classical way, however, it can be incorporated into some of the other big trends of the year. Use a fabric in that color on a curved sofa or side chair. Curved furnishings are making a comeback this season, and even if you don’t want to commit to using it in seating, it’s great to use in coffee tables and side tables.

For something a little less organic in shape, but still curved and sleek, try using some of the Art Deco/1920s influences that are popping up. You could choose a silver-framed vintage mirror or try something more modern and add a new take on statement ceilings. Statement walls have become expected, but a statement ceiling is potentially a great way to add interest, whether you choose tone-on-tone molding, wallpaper, paint, pressed tin, or any variety of fascinating visual options.

Alternatively, it seems boho chic is making a return. Soft, whimsical, and comfortable, it’s a great way to mix natural fabrics and fibres with earthy tones and pops of color that seem more organic, as if pressed from berries and bleached in the sun. Combine woods, metals, and slightly more streamlined furnishings to give the boho look an update without giving up on the fun of laying fabrics and materials.

Finally, with so many homes taking energy efficiency into consideration — including the Grayhawk new homes in Columbus GA — consider adding in some eco-friendly elements. A large living wall is not only beautiful, but it gives back a little. Add more real-life greenery to your home, paired with eco-friendly lights, for a home that is comfortable, cozy, and good for your conscience.
