Landing & Hallway Interior Trends
Entering your home should feel special every time. With the landing being the first place you enter in most homes, it’s important to make it look special.
Everybody loves the feeling of arriving at their hotel when on holiday. Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that clean, open and welcoming hotel foyers are becoming increasingly popular as inspiration for home hallways and landings.
Take inspiration from these well-presented spaces to create a welcoming for your home that is warm and inviting every time. If you enjoy travelling, you can take inspiration from hotels you’ve visited personally creating a more nostalgic feel in your home.

Lighter Shades for Bigger Spaces
Creating a hotel foyer at home isn’t always easy. For many of us, the main problem is space. If you have a narrow hallway or landing, you want to maximise its space as much as possible.
Choosing a light colour is a quick and easy way of making your landing appear bigger. You can use calm tones like whites or pale blues and greens to create airy spaces that fill you with calm after a busy day outside.

Living Room Interior Design Ideas
The living room is a unique space for interior design. Often the centrepiece of the home, this is the location where you can look to create statement and eye-catching styles.
The most important factor for any living room design is that it creates a welcoming space for everyone in the home. What that looks like can be different depending on your style, but it’s something that must be at the forefront of any design.
Make sure you have enough seats and space for everyone in the home. If you know that you will use the living room for watching TV, don’t try to create a magazine-style interior that isn’t used to its full potential. Ultimately, a great living room is not only beautiful but also functional.
“I always say a home is like a wardrobe – it should never stay static.” India Mahdavi, speaking to Livingetc.
The living room is perhaps the most frequently transformed space in interior design, and with good reason. Often the centrepiece of the home for family and guests, it’s a location that should be kept fresh and exciting.
Each season presents new trends and traditions that you can showcase in your interior. From the typical pastel and bohemian trends of summer to the more recent hygge trend of winter, adding new touches to your living room as the year goes by can help your design stay up-to-date.

Create Sociable Spaces
Perhaps the most important thing about the living room is that it’s a space which lends itself to socialising. As mentioned above, a living room needs to be good to look at and be comfortable to be in and share with others.
The positioning of furniture and other statement pieces is crucial in creating a space that lends itself to conversation. Lighting should also be considered – having multiple sources allows for a bright and engaging room and facilitates darker, warmer lighting for when it’s time to relax and watch some TV or read a book.

Kitchen Interior Ideas
While the living room is important, the kitchen is arguably the heart of the home. Many days start here, while we can also spend a lot of time cooking and socialising in these spaces, so they must be full of style.
A Touch of Glass
Glass is making a comeback, especially when it comes to light shades, and this style is perfect for the kitchen. Glass shades can beautifully complement a bright, airy interior design, helping to create spaces with a unique touch of regality and class.

“We all have a colour we look good in – by surrounding yourself in a space in the same shade, you’ll feel good all the time because you know you look good in it.” Martyn Lawrence Bullard, speaking to Livingetc.
Interior designers are now getting much more creative when it comes to colours in the kitchen. Instead of sticking to classic whites, colour is now much more vibrant and personal, even in the kitchen.
In the kitchen space, two-tone colour schemes are becoming increasingly popular, by combining a classic white, grey or yellow with more vibrant shades, you can create a space full of energy. Vibrant colours also make great conversation starters, breathing new life into any space.

“Look at the zones of your kitchen and think about the activities that will happen by the family in each space. Some spaces […] will require task lighting, while others, such as the dining area, might call for mood and accent lighting.” Marketa Rypacek, Managing Director of Industville, speaking to Homes & Gardens.
Ultimately, interior design needs to be functional and stylish, and nowhere is that more important than in the kitchen. Multiple light sources play a huge role here, so consider how your lighting scheme can contribute to various tasks, from cooking and homework to socialising.

Dining Room Interior Design Ideas
The dining room can be a tricky space to design. However, by viewing them as a statement part of the home, you can create some daring styles.
If you have a high enough ceiling, the dining room is the perfect place to experiment with oversized lighting. By having a centrepiece light that will draw the eye to the space, you create the ideal environment for creating a design full of wow factor.
A statement pendant can be an excellent choice for a dining room. Consider what feeling you would like to create and then choose the perfect statement lighting fixture to facilitate that emotional response.

“People will always have to eat, they have to get their hair cut, they have to go shopping – but they can choose whether they do these things in a boring place or an exciting place.” Marcel Wanders, speaking to CLAD Global.
There are few places more suited to being creative with interior design than the dining room. As mentioned above, dining rooms lend themselves to statement designs, so let your imagination run wild and come up with something unique that suits your style and family!

Bathroom Design Trends
Bathroom interiors come with their own set of challenges and opportunities. Space is often at a premium, but with only a few must-haves regarding functionality, there are many more possibilities than you might think.
Choose Your Style
With space often at a premium, the best bathrooms often have an unmistakable style that can be executed without too many unnecessary extras. Your bathroom space doesn’t necessarily have to be minimalist, but it should have everything pulling in the same direction.
It often helps to decide what kind of bathroom you would like to create before choosing accessories or colours. Once you have your style down, make sure every element lends itself to that feeling to create a clean, coherent space.

Bathrooms tend to be small, bright spaces with plenty of reflection which you can use to your advantage. Take care in choosing which metal fixtures you use for taps, showerheads and so on. Selecting a bright metal, such as brass or copper, can create a beautiful accent to compliment your space.

Bedroom Interior Ideas
The bedroom is a hugely important space in the home. While it’s important that it is a calm and cosy space, it should also be somewhere that fills you with pride and inspiration for the day ahead.
Unlike most rooms in the home, the bedroom is uniquely the property of whoever sleeps there. The design of any bedroom should reflect this, creating hugely personal spaces that reflects their personality.
The best way to create a genuinely personal room is by adding small touches that complement the larger style. Whether it’s photos of loved ones or souvenirs from past adventures, these happy memories should abound across your bedroom design.

Large, dynamic and eye-catching prints are becoming increasingly popular in interior design, and the bedroom is the perfect place to experiment with these. Find a photo or painting that connects with the owner, whether that’s yourself or a child, to add energy not just to the space but also the person.
