6 of the biggest homeware trends for spring/summer 2019

Interior lovers, rejoice. Etsy has released its annual home decor trend guide to help you style your home with the most desired interior looks of 2019.

Whether you’re after a complete revamp or simply want to add some modern touches to your home, the trends are here to inspire. According to Etsy, maximalism is the theme of the season and it’s taking hold in the form of standout fixtures, bold patterns, and vibrant colours.

More notably, the guide states six major trends that you’re definitely going to want to get involved with. So, here they are…

Tie-dye revival


Tie-dye has not only crept into spring/summer fashion, but it is also officially one of the biggest interior trends of the season. According to Etsy, the term has received more than 267k searches on their website over the past three months and has now been dubbed the ‘latest 70s trend making a comeback.’ The pattern is appearing on everything from bedding to planters and mirrors.

Art deco has been a huge trend for a while now and it is showing no signs of slowing down. With over 2.4 million searches on Etsy, it is clear that we can’t get enough of the the 19th-century style. Luxe textures (looking at you, velvet), geometric patterns, and pops of metallics are some of the key elements making their way into our homes.

Wallpaper, not on walls


It turns out wallpaper isn’t just for our walls. This year, we’re seeing this design staple being used in the most unexpected ways. From staircases and dressers, to cabinets, there’s a growing demand for wallpaper to be used as excellent pops of colour or patterns in alternative areas of your home. Over the past three months, Etsy has seen an
increase of 385% for ‘peel stick wallpaper’ (compared to the same time period the year
before), over 15,000 searches for ‘floor decals’ and over 19,000 searches for ‘stair decals.’
