UK PhotoStyling: 2018 Furniture Show Report 2

Hi! It's Paula and Andrew here, photographer and stylist from PhotoStyling. We've just arrived back from three of the major European interior trade shows, Paris, Cologne, and Birmingham. On behalf of Arighi Bianchi, we're here to share a few of 2018 hottest interior trends soon to be gracing our homes!

1. From Botanical to blousy blooms

Romance is back on trend! New colourways of floral wallpaper were everywhere at Maison et Objet in Paris.
Dusky pink, cornflower blue, sage green and poppy red gave a new dimension to the already well-loved botanical and blousy flower look.

2. Think Mineral. Think Gold.

Gold is still a precious metal but not so rare in interiors now. In fact, it was a massive presence in every interior show this January.
There’s no limit to it: you can combine it with neutrals, bold colours, black-and-white schemes, wood, metal, velvet - anything really!
Take a look at the photos below to see what possibilities this look opens up.

3. Tropical Greenery

Palms and tropical vibes have continued throughout the Winter and are still with us in 2018. Luxurious tropical greenery made it on to wallpapers, fabrics, rugs, cushions and accessories. We love it because it's a way of softening the January blues during the dark Winter days.

4. Statement Animal Accessories

This trend is such an easy way to transform your home. Just choose the coolest key animal accessories and they will immediately add personality and charm to your interior.
