10 Decorator Trends to Try in 2018

Whether you are planning to give your house a full revamp or need to provide a nod to the year’s main insides trends with a fresh lick of paint, there is something for everybody.

Scandi Styling

Minimalist and practical furniture can spring to mind when you think of Scandinavian styling, but you can now add impact to a pared-back monochromatic look with rich jewel tone accents, plush textures and graphic stripes or prints. Modern and inviting, this appearance indicates that fuss-free insides are anything but dull.


None for the faint-hearted more is more when it comes to the maximalism insides trend. Try the pattern first with something simple such as a variety of cushions in clashing tones, before building up to bold furniture, paints or wallpapers.

Since Pantone’s Colour of the Year, it is no wonder Ultraviolet is having a significant influence on the insides world also. This is another fashion you may follow as much or as little as you’d like; head out with a purple couch or walls or add purple accents with details such as lamps or soft furnishings for a low-commitment upgrade.

Wall Art

Forget bare walls, add personality to a room with a gallery wall full of everything from picture prints and quotations to family photos and artwork.


The seventies are back in a big way this season, with terrazzo explicitly having a revival. John Lewis has a terrazzo lamp at the sale for only #12 offering a budget-friendly spin on the trend, or you may invest in terrazzo flooring tiles to deliver retro influences to your kitchen or bathroom.


Transform your house into a beautiful oasis with vibrant colours of green and botanical prints. This looks lavish and fresh — ideal for bathrooms or an exceptional living room.


Another retro look that is back with a bang is fringing. In addition to dominating the catwalks, it is also proving popular with insides. By tasselled cushions to fringed lighting, even only 1 statement piece is sufficient to incorporate the trend to your dwelling. We adore this ornate mirror from Oliver Bonas, that has been reduced to an affordable #27. Marble

Mixed metals

Copper and rose gold tones have been everywhere for the last few decades, but today the on-trend approach to design them is by mixing compounds.

Geometric prints

From bedding to carpets and even wallpapers, it is a graphic and contemporary trend which works exceptionally well in bedrooms. Try something like this background from B&Q, which combines pastel tones of pink, rose gold and lilac to significant effect.

Rattan textures

Mix with various textures to create an exciting, cozy vibe.Synonymous with luxury, marble remains an integral trend for 2018. It’s also refreshingly easy to integrate into your dwelling. If you do not have the budget for solid marble tiles or furniture, you can still try the appearance with marble-effect backgrounds, coated ceramic tiles or even marble-effect dinnerware for an inexpensive home refresh.

Statement Ceilings

While the statement wall remains popular, a statement ceiling will produce an unusual focal point in any room. You can paint the ceiling in 1 block colour or even use a patterned background to fully transform your room with no need to modify anything else.
