For those who start renovations on the eve of the New Year, the problem of interior fashion and design trends is always one of the most important issues. The professionals of the Lanskoy shopping complex, based on interior exhibitions in Milan and Paris, as well as analyzing new collections of leading interior brands, have compiled for you a short excursion into the fashion trends of 2019.
What’s outdated in the new year?
The interiors in the classic interpretation of the Scandinavian style have blurred the eyes of even the most ardent admirers. Now the Nordic aesthetic is not expressed in the form of a white wall with contrasting wood furnishings and black décor, but is being revisited in the bud. The Nordic style brought in dark complex and muted colors, as well as dusty pastel shades. Now more and more gray-green, bottle, burgundy, terracotta, menthol, the color of a withered rose and dark mint appear on the walls. Interior projects of designers are increasingly showing us a non-standard approach to decorative moldings on walls and ceilings. Now the stucco molding does not contrast with the main color of the interior and does not frame it, but is painted in the color of the walls.
Often there is the so-called casket effect – that is, a ceiling painted in the color of the walls. Oddly enough, but just such a solution will visually smooth out the boundaries of space and optically enlarge a small room.
One of the interior varieties of the Nordic style is its Japanese stylization – the Japanordic style. This design is built on a combination of incongruous – Nordic Scandinavian aesthetics and Japanese aged minimalism wabi-sabi. Styles so different at first glance turned out to be surprisingly close spiritually: both preach a cozy asceticism, a touch of time and ecological materials for decorating the premises.
Loft in its classical sense is also already receding into the background. The red brick wall is being replaced with stone façade tiles or imitation concrete. Now this style is more close to the modern industrial industrial style and is based not on contrasting colors, but on the effect of gray ombre or gradient. The industrial style brings elements of the exterior and street art into the interior. But all this is matched unobtrusively in tone.
Furniture, of course, is primarily matched to the style of the interior. But it still happens that furniture begins to dictate the choice of the main vector of apartment design. In 2019, neoclassicism and contemporary furnishings are replaced by a minimalist and specific retro style, or rather the era of the 70s. Cabinet furniture is selected in light shades of wood with a large wood texture. Countertops, front part or doors are matte surfaces in warm pastel shades that imitate the film of the 70s: dirty mint, dark banana, mustard. Tables and chairs have slanting round legs and uneven oval surfaces. This trend is due to the popularity of the Nordic and Wabi Sabi styles.
Upholstered furniture this season departs from the simplicity of contemporary style and takes on noble outlines. The upholstery is selected in complex shades of velvet or satin with a characteristic shine. This solution fits perfectly into the neoclassical and neo-baroque styles. And in the stylization of the 70s, upholstered furniture with velveteen upholstery is built in. Legs and fittings are found in either wood or brass in the form of matte gold.
Pastel shades do not lose their relevance, but now contrasting bright colors of indigo and wine are added to them. Moreover, wine appears paired with bottle or mint, and deep blue is found in the interior in contrast to the shade of a withered rose. In interiors, ombre and gradient effects are increasingly common, when all elements in an apartment are shades of the same color.
Tropical large ornaments depicting exotic greenery are in vogue this year. The print in the form of a large monstera leaf remains popular. And if earlier greenery was depicted on a white background, now it is found on a black one. Such solutions are suitable for decorating an accent wall with wallpaper or as a textile decor. Also at the peak of popularity are images of exotic animals and birds, especially flamingos. African folk ikat prints are making a comeback in textiles.
