We take a look at 2018's hottest interior design trends, according to home renovation and design website Houzz. Some of last year's styles are here to stay along with some brand new ones.
Pantone's Colour Of The Year 2018. Described as dramatically provocative and thoughtful by the Pantone Colour Institute, this bold choice of colour is perfect for injecting a bit of vibrancy into any home. With a colour as bold as this, a good way to introduce it into your interior is with home accessories and soft furnishings. However if you are feeling adventurous, this blueish shade of purple is perfect for a statement wall; team with coppers or brass items to achieve an opulent effect.

70's GlamDare to go retro? 70's glam is making its way into our homes. Think plush velvets and gold details, along with rounded designs, dark colours and rich woods.
Metallic MixingCopper and brass have been a staple interior trend for some time and it is still going strong. A twist on this is to mix metallic together, for example, clashing gold with silver for a chic and confident look.

Global NomadThis travel-inspired trend is set for a big comeback in 2018, bringing a personalised touch with it. Think handcrafted textiles, exotic artefacts and black and white tribal patterns, against jungle patterns, earthy colours and worn timber.
GreeneryAnother trend sticking around is tropical prints and plants, bringing freshness, colour and texture into the home. We love some of the wallpaper designs available featuring this trend.

"John German would definitely be our first choice if we decide to move house in the future. All the buyers had been vetted properly so we avoided time wasters which was much appreciated as there's nothing worse than no shows."
