INTERIOR TRENDS TO TRANSFORM YOUR HOME FOR 2019

For many of us the start of a new year signals an opportunity to start afresh. A time to rid ourselves of old patterns and behaviours that no longer serve us and to create new goals for the year ahead.

Whilst many people’s goals are focused on the personal things they would like to achieve (loose 10 kilo’s, drink less etc), I’m here to remind you all, not to forget about the home.

Our homes are a reflection of who we are as people. They showcase what matters to us most and are representative of our personality, lifestyle and style, so they deserve a little love!

I am a firm believer that your home should be a place where you feel most comfortable and at peace, which is why ‘house goals’ are so important.

Like people, our homes evolve as we grow and our tastes change. So if one of your new year goals is to give your home a complete overhaul or your planning on redecorating that space you’ve been talking about for the past year, here are some interior trends for the year ahead to get you inspired.
