The main theme for home interiors for 2019 is for more sustainability and natural materials. When it comes to decoration for homes the main emphasis is on choosing designs that are classic and longer lasting, with of course some pretty colours to embrace.
This is quite a pared-back look evolved around simplicity and a bright colour palette. 1970’s Scandi has a graphic feel with geometric prints, earthy colours and natural materials. Less is more with this look, no need to over clutter however a few accessories such as planters and statement lighting add a nice touch to this trend.

4. Mix and Match Pattern:
To counter the minimalist look, pattern is also key this season, using a combination of patterns and styles together. The key is to keep the colour palette in the same tone, eg here you can see everything blends in with the same tone, nothing stands out. The plain furniture, floor boards, and coffee table acts as a blank canvas, the rug and wallpaper pulls the look together.
