5 Instagram-worthy interior design ideas from Houzz of 2018

January 26, 2018

Open to the public for one week only, Houzz’s pop up event in London is full of interior design trends that will inspire your next home revamp.

Hosted in a slim, five storey Soho terrace townhouse, the free, entirely shoppable event, Houzz of 2018, is jam-packed full of trend-led furniture.

With trend predictions from the team, we’ve rounded up some of the most swoon-worthy ideas we love and that you definitely need to see in real life on a tour of the property.

The Houzz team says:

‘As a design era, the 1970s were packed with great design details and many of these are having a contemporary revival. From bold, clashing patterns, and glitzy gold accessories to a love for houseplants, many of the interiors items making waves at the moment had their roots in this bold decade.’

Buy houseplants

The Houzz team says:

‘Houseplants have taken over interiors at a rampant pace and they’ve also started to wind their tendrils onto wallpapers and fabrics too. These botanical patterns owe little to the tropical craze of past seasons and everything to the delicate botanical prints of the Victorian era. Think trailing ivy, intricate ferns and detailed leaves in all shades of green, from rich emeralds to soft moss tones.’

Green tones on walls

The Houzz team says:

‘Dark green has been a slow-burn trend for a while but deep, rich shades of forest green have gathered speed and all shades of green are firmly on the map for 2018 – from jewel-bright emeralds to mossy woodland tones.’

Crafted homeware

The Houzz team says:

‘With an emphasis on traditional techniques and handmade items, crafted celebrates the history and story behind each piece of homeware and shines a spotlight on the skills of the designer-maker. Heavily textured and woven wall hangings, rugs, stools and chair seats are all examples of this trend, as are terrazzo vases, pottery tea sets and bent-wood light shades.’

Modern rustic features

The Houzz team says: 

‘Natural and soothing, modern rustic is a modern take on country style and one that looks just as good in an urban terrace as a rural farmhouse. The style celebrates natural materials and traditional crafts but brings them up to date with modern techniques and contemporary colours.’

Open to the public daily between 11am – 9pm from 26th – 31st January (except Saturday 27th January, where the installation closes at 6pm) at 19 Greek Street, visitors can expect a jam-packed programme, including hands-on workshops and entertaining events.
