TOP 5 INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS IN THE UK

The research, which was conducted by ConservatoryBlinds4Less, show that the below trends are the most popular in the UK.

1. SHABBY CHIC

This timeless trend epitomises faded elegance and an unrefined sense of luxury. To create the feel of timeworn opulence from scratch try mixing new buys with vintage market finds. Look for decorative accessories such as chandeliers and mirrors that haven’t been perfectly restored, but have aged with character, and opt for furniture and textiles that feel lived-in. Chipped paintwork, faded fabrics and blemishes all add to the charm.

2. INDUSTRIAL STYLE

This look takes its lead from loft-style living making it ideally suited to large open-plan apartments flooded with natural light and modern urban boltholes with an inherently minimalist feel. Seek out cleaned-up junk shop finds and contemporary industrial designs to achieve the raw quality that this look commands, but create a more homely feel with the addition of relaxed soft furnishings, natural untreated woods and flourishes of greenery.

4. CONTEMPORARY DESIGN

Contemporary architecture, created as an addition or an extension to an existing property, can make a style statement while perfectly chiming with its environment. Success depends on using the right materials and opting for a sleek design that results in an effective blend of old and new. The building doesn’t end at the facade. It’s not just about the building as an object.
