#7 Floral Fabrics and Wallpapers
Whether abstracted or straight up chintz, floral patterns will be the go-to trend for wallpaper this year. It’s a trend that has been around for a while now, but for 2019 expect to see it in a new light – including exaggerated proportions and contrasting colours.

#8 Sustainable, Handmade Pieces
Expect to see more items made of jute, rice paper and even clay in 2019. These grounding elements in the home is a great way to feel more in touch with the earth.
#10 Rugs as Wall Art
This is a new trend that’s sweeping the design world this year – with IKEA even getting in on the action. Hanging your rug as wall art has helped this staple decorating item become a part of the decorative arts within a design scheme – bonus points for abstract and artistic designs.
