Ginnis New Homes’ interior designer predicts top trends for 2019
Floral fabrics and bold tribal prints are THE top trends for 2019, according to Ginnis New Homes interior designer Poppy McGinnis.
And Poppy, who worked on the stunning show home at Deer Park; an exclusive development of 30 brand-new houses in Butterley, Derbyshire, is predicting more furniture made from sustainable materials for the eco-conscious UK home owner.
“Traditional floral fabrics patterns in abstract or chintz are most definitely in for the new year,” she said.
“Rich jewel tones are still in; think dark teal, indigo and emerald green. We’ll also see a lot of curved furniture – a throwback to the 1960s – and sustainable handmade pieces made out of jute and clay.
“Bold tribal patterns will continue to be popular in homes up and down the country.
“You can see a great example of how well tribal patterns work in the kitchen of our Deer Park show home; the fabric used to make the blinds blends perfectly with the French grey of the units.”
Poppy, who works for Northern Ireland-based Cornerstone Partners Interior Designers, believes that there will be a need for more compact, multi-functional furniture in 2019, too.
“Every space has its own personality and, with a few touch-ups and the right eye, you can really make it shine,” added Poppy.
“More people are downsizing; a couple of the residents at Deer Park have done just this, so compact furniture which is multi-functional and looks good works well.”
Each Deer Park home mixes modern living with traditional features – such as high ceilings, open-plan kitchens and built-in storage space, making them very on-trend for 2019.
The development is based just off Coach Road, close to the Derbyshire Police and Fire Headquarters, and promises to offer residents the very best blend of countryside and town living.
The Deer Park show home is open 11-1pm and 2-4pm every Saturday. For further information contact selling agents Boxall, Brown & Jones on 01773 880788, Elders on 01773 304444 or visit www.ginnis-homes.co.uk
