This year, there has been a huge focus on interior spaces purely designed to encourage a deep sense of wellbeing, promoting a good mood and healthy lifestyle; utilising elements of nature to create an atmosphere that evokes contentment and enhances relaxation.
Mindful homes are here to stay for 2019, which means bright spaces that utilise natural daylight, boost happiness and increase our productivity will rise in popularity. This will be particularly noticeable in bathroom interiors where we often gather our daily mind-set each morning.
Think clean sleek lines and white marble variants combined with sensorial reflections, such as these Mimosa Marble Tiles £89.95/Sqm Marvel Plus Tiles £24.95/Sqm, Walls and Floors - perfect for generating a fresh canvas to welcome intimate natural accents.
Retro rivial, terrazzo-style

70s-style terrazzo touches made their way back into homes in 2018 after the sustainable stone material was named one of the top interior style trends for AW18. From bedding and lighting to flooring and wallpaper, the retro-revivial is set to continue in the new year, filtering its way into kitchens.
We're talking stylish terrazzo worktops, unique crockery and cute cutlery available in a range of colours to suit all tastes and styles.
Dark and dusky midnight blue hues
2018 saw the rise of striking dark kitchens, and it seems that 2019 isn't quite ready to say goodbye to the dramatic colour trend just yet. Go dark and dusky next year with a rich, versatile shade of midnight blue.
When decorating with an all-blue scheme, complement a deeper palette with pops of mauve to enliven your look. Choose over-sized floral prints, or classic crockery with a flash of this shade.
Pops of pastel

Themes of individuality and self expression are expected to filter through to our home interiors next year, especially in the kitchen. It's time to say yes to bold patterns and bright colour pops, turning daring combinations into sophisticated statements.
Think kitchen appliances and utensils in vibrant hues, strong and distinctive backsplashes and - if you're brave enough - retro style flambouyant fridges.

Mid-century modern styles will take a back seat in 2019 as we step back even further in time to embrace classic Victorian bathroom schemes.
The key to achieving this trend is to create an awe-inspiring focal point with a freestanding, cast-iron bath tub. Team with distressed vintage storage cabinets to complete the look.
