With every new year comes new home trends and by the looks of it 2018 is going to be bolder and better than ever before. Think luxe velvets, antique embroideries, jewel tones and layer upon layer of… well everything. It’s time to wave bye bye to minimalism and sludgy hues and welcome colour into our homes as well as, our favourite, more is more, maximalism.
But, with so many exciting trends in the line-up, we asked a few our favourite interiors designers, bloggers and fellow retailers for their pick of 2018’s number one home décor trend.

“One thing I've particularly been drawn to is curvy furniture. I recently snapped up a beautiful Biedermeier sofa with a curved back and I have loved the shape since! It's much softer than hard edges and curvilinear lines add a calming feel to a room.”

“For me, you can't beat a botanical print and it looks like the trend for florals and greenery is most definitely here to stay. Opt for a tropical print wallpaper to make a bold statement or use vintage inspired botanical wall hangings to bring subtle femininity to a room.”
