Interior Design Trends We Love for 2019

Have we seen the end of rose gold accents and quartz countertops? Probably not. However, we are beginning to see a shift towards richer tones and warmer interiors. Here are some interior design trends we are watching for 2019:

Acrylic-Dyed Fabrics

In 2019, look for the increased use of acrylic-dyed fabrics both inside and outside of the home. As rooms become more multi-functional, fabrics need to be more forgiving of children, pets, and entertaining. Fortunately, solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are readily available in a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns.

Mixed Metal Accents

2019 is all about moderation and context. For example, brass, gold, and nickel accents are added to oil-rubbed bronze or aged iron accents. Metals like silver and pewter mix well with bronze and black brown metals.

Rich Tones

Pantone’s colors for the upcoming season are “calm, composed & effortlessly sophisticated.” Benjamin Moore’s Ellen O’Neill says, “Metropolitan AF-690 emanates nuance, harmony and extravagant ease. Always adaptable, it softens to matte or shimmers with sheen. It’s neutral. It’s understated. It just is. This is color, off-duty.” This is why it is the Color of the Year. The Spring/Summer season features 15 Unique Colors – including Balboa Mist, Hale Navy, and Black Pepper.

Sustainable Materials

Accents made from materials like jute, rice paper, and clay will become one of the increasingly popular interior design trends in the new year. These grounding elements provide homeowners a way to feel more in touch with the Earth and their roots.


Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties. Travertine can be honed, polished, tumbled or brushed. It is the perfect stone to transition from interior spaces to exterior landscapes. For more design tips and interior design trends visit the Blog section on my website.
