It feels like 2018 just flew by and here we are, on the cusp of a brand new year. Of course, this is traditionally a time when we take stock and re-evaluate everything from our lifestyles (hands up who’s set some fitness goals?!) to our homes. Making a few changes around the house is a great way to banish the winter blues and get you seeing old spaces in new ways – perfect when you need a little boost to keep you motivated through these darker days.

Here at DINE Living, we’ve always got a little finger on the pulse of the upcoming trends – so here’s a brief look at some of our ‘ones to watch’ for the coming year…

The New Art Deco

Inspired by the architecture of the 1930s, Art Deco was one of the greatest influences on 20th century design, characterized by bold, geometric forms and luxurious details using glass and precious metals. The new Art Deco draws on these same influences but pared back for a more refined look featuring strong patterns on carpets and upholstery, glittering light fittings, polished brass accents on furniture and accessories, and luxe touches of velvet and shimmering silk.


From Pantone’s golden coral to soft shades of baby, pink continues to pop up everywhere in the 2019 interior. No longer regarded as exclusively feminine, pink has the power to soften rustic or industrial spaces and inject uplifting warmth into our homes.


More of an ethos than a trend, we’re all becoming more conscious of how our lifestyles impact on the planet, which is resulting in the rise of eco-friendly interiors. Making use of repurposed objects and natural materials mixed with sustainably-made, heirloom quality pieces (like our tables!), the eco interior has an eclectic feel that will never go out of style.


Not for the faint-hearted, industrial-style interiors are an evolution of minimalism, all about seeing the beauty in raw forms and materials such as steel, concrete and timber. Coupled with 21st century tech and softened with textiles, this is a timeless look that can be surprisingly comfortable too.

Did somebody say pattern? Something of a backlash against the minimalism favoured in recent times, maximalist homes are all about embracing colour and pattern for a rich, multi-faceted look that evokes bygone days but with a contemporary twist. Patterned wallpaper, heavy drapes, tactile upholstery fabrics and burnished metal accents all combine to create a bold look that creates a wonderfully cocooning feel.
