Key trend #1: Terrazzo
Terrazzo is back! Originally it was used as a versatile flooring material originating from Italy. Terrazzo is made of unused cut offs of small odd-sized pieces of marble, glass and granite mixed into concrete. Venetian workers started using terrazzo as flooring material in the fifteenth century. Last century terrazzo was used from the 1920’s to the 1940’s and had a revival in the 1970’s. Today’s applications for terrazzo are far more versatile. You can buy terrazzo look tiles, benchtops and splashbacks. A new key trend for 2019 is terrazzo-look wallpaper. Also, watch out for plant pots, vases, side tables and clocks. “Terrazzo adds some spice to a neutral coloured space.”
Key trend #2: A come back for Art Deco
Another key trend is Art Deco which evolved as an interior
style during the early 20th century and reached its peak in the 1930’s. The
style originated from the Parisian exhibition “Exposition Internationale
des Arts Decoratifs et Industrial Modernes” in 1925.
Furthermore, the style was influenced by other styles such as Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, Cubism just to name a few.
Art Deco is a very distinctive, elegant style. Its main characteristics are geometric patterns, gold, brass, glass, black lacqueur.

Key trend #4: Greenery
The fourth key trend is still going strong. When Pantone

come back in interior design. A quick explanation for the ones who don’t know
what Pantone is. Pantone sets annual colour trends in fashion and interior
design, based on their research.
I was a little shocked, hearing “green” is in trend again. I had to think about the green tiled bathroom in my grandma’s home.
Now, I’m totally in love with green. Since then I’ve decorated my own home with lots of greenery. This makes my space feel warm and homely. If you don’t have a green thumb, then choose plants with easy maintenance properties. My choice is succulents, monstera plant and chain of hearts.
