2018 Interior Design Trends We Love

Posted by

It’s nearly the end of the year and the time when we like to look ahead to what will be big in interiors next year. Here are our favourite trends which we can see working really well in Costa del Sol properties.

Comforting cool tones

Elle Décor picked up the trend for using light linen and pearl grey tones to add a relaxed air to any space from the Maison & Objet international design fair and we can see this softening the traditionally white interiors of homes on the Costa del Sol. Our property stylists often use neutral, organic colours like grey, teal, and beige to break up stretches of white without taking away from the cool and bright finish and so we look forward to more of these lovely tones in accessories and paints next year.

Bringing the outside in

Professional trend spotter Nancy Fire loves using plants and greenery to decorate and sees this as an important trend for 2018. It is a very affordable and easy way to bring colour, texture and shape into your interiors and something which works very well in Marbella homes, complementing the bright whites and the blue sky outside. Look for hanging planters, wall planters and structural palms which offer height and form to create a strong visual impact. You can even find plant motifs in textiles and accessories to continue the theme. Find out more

Terrific Tiles

As tiles are a very traditional feature of Spanish properties, we were pleased to see that using intricate tile designs particularly in kitchens and bathrooms is one of next year’s trends. Tiles can offer colour, form and a very practical and easy to clean surface. There are great reclaimed tiles for sale in markets on the Costa del Sol which can add some real personality and colour to your home.

New statement colours

In 2018 the key colours are black as a statement colour, pastels such as greens and pinks, strong pinks, cool blues, vibrant yellows and greens, metallics and tech green. Find out more Not all of these would work in a Costa del Sol property, we’d advise against trying the black rooms here and the strong pinks would jar against the bright blue of the sky. However we would recommend experimenting with minimalist pastels to soften all white properties and shades of blue are perfect to tie in the sea and the sky with the interior of your property.

We hope that these trends have whetted your appetite and made you think of a change for 2018. Even small design changes can give your property a totally different feel and can make it feel more welcoming or create a sense of space. These first impressions are particularly important if you’re trying to sell your property next year and our property styling experts can help you find the right look that buyers will love. Book a consultation to see how you can embrace the new trends and make your property really shine so it can sell.
