Decorating Trends to Try in 2019

Maybe you consistently keep up with design trends and update your home, or perhaps your spaces could use a little sprucing up with a highlight here or a new piece of art there. Each year has its new trends that are adaptable to your personal tastes, like colour schemes, materials, textures, and styles of furniture. The new year is the perfect time to think about some long-term projects and goals, and it’s also prime time for decorating ideas to get started on right away!

Print Partner provides photo printing services across Canada for the professional photographer, artist, and hobbyist alike. We’re a team of passionate professional photographers and craftspeople who know how to turn a digital file into a beautiful print using archival printing techniques on an array of mediums and finishes. We’re artistically-minded, like you, and want to help you create a striking piece to don in your home as part of this year’s redecorating!

Check out the following decorating and design trends for 2019.

Metal Prints. Beautiful wall art is always in style, but if you’re looking for something modern, sleek, and original, our lightweight and durable metal photo prints will stun admirers in any room you choose. Metal as a medium excels at displaying brilliant and accurate colours in high dimension with a luminous quality. High resolution, details, and contrasts are prominent features, as well as the medium’s physical strength, fade- and scratch-resistance. What’s best is you can print your personal photos from a memorable vacation, your favourite spot in town or in the country, or that perfect capture of a sunset, and display it in a variety of size options. You can upload your order today and our team will help you optimize it to suit your design goals.

Apartment Therapy is excited about:

Bold Colours. Neutral minimalism fades further into the background and stand-out shades are taking over. Embrace maximalist designs with a mix of bold patterns and unique textures that run the gamut of pigments. Call-backs to other eras will naturally emerge with a mixing of familiar shades in new places.

Mixed Metals. Add a little more metal in your décor with highlight pieces made of brass, iron, retro tin- or gold-plated. What’s new about metal pieces is mixing types with different textiles this year. Give your ceiling a mosaic look with old-fashioned patterns imprinted into the occasional tin-plated tiles. Contrast velvet, wool, or cashmere with polished metal in the living room or bedroom.

Designers share some ideas with Elle Décor:

Sustainability. Wasteful and even toxic materials are out and 2019 is about green decorating. Hand made and crafted items from sustainable materials like jute, rice paper, clay, cork, bamboo, plus repurposed and upcycled pieces that are totally original are getting people excited.

Black Bathrooms. And other dark shades are making the bathroom more of a high-end spa experience and feel. Contrast with white porcelain fixtures and perhaps a boldly-coloured planter in the corner.

Pros tell Refinery 29 these trends will be big:

Glossy Walls. High-gloss paint in striking colours like scarlet, emerald green, or violet make a ‘jewelry box’ effect that looks great in any room. Be sure to get quality brushes or a professional to take care of glossing up the place because it can get streaky or show flaws. If you want just a touch of gloss for your wall, our photo prints can be printed onto acrylic as well.

Gallery Style. Collect and create art of any style you want, in a mix of mediums and sizes, and display them together in mosaics and arranged photo sets. Mix mediums like metal, acrylic, canvas, and professional photo papers. A mix of frames and borderless prints mash-up the presentation even more for a totally unique look.
