With a new year comes a new you, and while many people get caught up in their soon-to-be unsuccessful new year's resolutions, why don't you make a change that will stick? When it comes to interior design, many people keep the same decor for years, viewing it as too hard to make a change. What people don't realise is that it's a lot easier than you think to spice up your interior and make a big impression.
We've put together our favourite interior design trends for 2019, with a few easy and affordable ways to achieve them. Create the stylish home you've always dreamed of without breaking the bank.
One of the easiest ways to spice up your home is to incorporate a pop of colour throughout your decor. If you're stuck on which colour to go with, why not choose the Pantone 2019 colour of the year? Living Coral 16-1546 is a statement colour that is said to mirror the familiar and energising aspects of colour found in nature. If you're building or renovating your home, consider adding this colour as a tiled feature in your kitchen or bathroom, pairing it with neutral shades to make it pop. If retiling isn't an option, purchase some decorative pillows to put on your couch or lounge chair.
With land and house sizes becoming smaller as the years go on, the need for multi-functional and compact furnishings has increased. Got a small alfresco but no games room? Why not take a look at the 'fusion' table serving as both a dining and pool table. This great multipurpose piece is something the whole family can enjoy along with their regular dining area.
Made famous in the 60s, curved furnishings are making a splash in 2019. Curved lines are making the return to sofas and seating making it one of the most comfortable interior trends to consider for your home. If you don't want to invest in a brand new couch, don't stress -you can achieve this look with s simple side chair or utility bench.
A trend we can always get on board with - go green! Natural environments are suffering all around the world, so it's great to see decor that is easy on the eye whilst leaving little impact on the planet and its resources. Try something that makes a statement like a hand-woven basket to add as the centrepiece on your outdoor dining table.
If you're looking for something extra to add to your surroundings, indoor plants will never go out of style. Check out your local nursery for some cheap and beautiful additions to your home.

We hope these trends inspire you to spice up your interior in 2019. Whether you're about to decorate or redesign a space, these elements are sure to set you in the right direction. Have fun and don't forget to enjoy the area you create!
