Black is back | Interior colour trends 2018

1 August 2017


Contrary to popular belief, black is an easy colour to decorate with – it’s elegant, bold and goes with any theme and colour palette. Whereas 2017 is all about green, neutral and pastel hues, 2018 is predicted to be all about black. Read on to find out how to work the trend in your own home.

Black lighting

These modern hanging lamps are inspired by Finnish clams. Elegant and minimal, they would look great over a Scandinavian style kitchen table or bench.


Black floors

Ge the rich effect of black floors by staining or inking floorboards. Having black or very dark floors is an excellent way to create contrast in a room, and works best with white or light colour furniture and walls.

Black tiles

The trend for half-painted rooms can be taken one step further with black tiles. A great way to contrast to a stark white wall, and much better at hiding any water splashes than classic white tiles.


Black bathroom

All-black bathrooms are gaining in popularity. But, a single black wall in a bathroom looks just as sophisticated – especially when paired with brass accents, like the bathroom pictured.
