2019 is set to be the year of monochrome and rustic design. Who knew? Well, we did actually. Here’s the lowdown.


This is a classic combination, but combining black and white in your home could actually offer lots of opportunity and inspiration. For instance, it’s a good time to experiment with introducing light and dark elements, especially if you’ve previously showed an inclination towards one or the other as many of us do.

Monochrome also allows you to experiment with bold shapes and prints, such as chevrons, stripes or even something more abstract, without creating too much noise. And if you’ve been trying to combine an old and new space, using black and white paint or artwork can be a strong way of bringing the rooms together in a seamless, instinctive way.


Handmade details are slowly making a comeback particularly with the emergence of the Japanese trend Wabi Sabi that emphasises the beauty in imperfection and natural, organic elements.

To get started with this trend, opt for small items like candles, baskets and tableware like dishes and cups. Alternatively, if you’re looking to add a little warmth to your space, go with fringes or other textured pieces in the form of rugs, pillows and throws that will turn up the cosy factor.

This trend is great for introducing new things to the home that adds a spark of excitement and character. Don’t be afraid to get creative in picking out items that speak to you the most – after all, your home is reflective of your personal style and tastes.
