Last year was all about rose gold metallics, exposed lighting and Millennium pink. Here are six of the biggest interior decoration trends and style updates that will make their way into fashionable homes this year.

More colour-popping kitchens

All-white kitchens now look outdated

With so much time spent there, who wants a monotonous all-white cooking space? Introduce a playful and energetic mood with bold colour touches through tiled splashbacks or kitchen accessories.

Natural elements of harmony and balance

Cocoon yourself in nature

Wood, concrete accents, granite, and natural sunlight are some of the on-trend elements you can mix this year to create a minimal yet astonishing result. This elemental fusion will convert any sterile space into a warm and cosy cocoon.

Glam dark woods

Go retro glam with dark wood

A retro glamour approach replaces monastic concrete finishes this year. Wood is one of the easiest and warmest of natural materials and comes in a variety of finishes, species and applications. From flooring to ceiling beams, wood is always a good solution for your home.

Warm neutrals

Stay neutral and embrace the “new calm”

Home becomes sanctuary with a new emphasis on soothing neutral colour palettes such as beige, grey, brown and white, encouraging an unhurried interior life. Complement the “new calm” with simple furniture pieces.

Majestic marble  

Mediterranean marble is a big design trend for 2018

Luxurious, elegant and timeless – and in no short supply here in Greece! Put a modern spin on this ancient material by daring to introduce marble as an ornamental furnishing (not just on floors). Marble is natural and durable and can deliver a surprisingly chic minimalistic result.


Millennium metal

Rose gold metallics were the interiors story of 2017 – but this year we’ll see more earthy copper accents appearing in home interiors. Copper – when applied sparingly, such as in a tiled or panelled effect, can inject a much-needed warming energy into any tired space.
