Reinvention is predicted to trend in this year’s interior design circuit, according to Jenny Brown, the National Marketing Manager of Luxaflex Window Fashions, who has picked her top three interior design crazes of 2018.

Reinvention is taking the traditional and innovating it to create comfort within a modern space, established through the use of colour and texture.

The combination of comfort and textiles emits a gentle tactility, and the colour usage allows access to seasonal inspirations that can be applied to a variety of textures.

According to Jenny, this trend is related to the urbanisation phenomenon that will have a presence in the work of residential and commercial interiors. She believes it has become popular due to the attention and information being communicated on human waste globally and the transparency of nomad living.

A trend that will also be relevant this year is printed fabrics, with a focus on botanic prints. Originally, it was seen as influential in 2017, with the use of botanic prints in comforting colours, such as drift wood pinks.

Jenny explains that this year, it will evolve to cater to a more healthy living space, continuing the use of florals and botanics to create a sense of calm.

Another trend continuing from 2017 is heavy, dimensional waves. More textured weaves are being refined through the usage of yarn, which is tactile surfaces that use colour to create depth and dimension. It is predicted that it would be the next evolution of textured fabrics. Jenny also explains that fewer metallics are used to off-set the strength of woven details and dimensional surfaces.
