Interior Trends 2018

With 2018 in full swing you may be considering reviving your home for the new year ahead. Whether you wish to undertake a complete home makeover or are simply looking to update your interior, there has never been a better time to experiment with colours and prints to bring your home to life.

At Leekes you’ll find inspirational ideas for every room in your home, incorporating the latest in interior design and decorating trends to ensure something to cater to every taste, style and budget.

2018 is all about the bright and beautiful. Gone are the subtle and soft colours, instead it is time to embrace all things bold.


Metallics have been a huge trend in previous years and are showing no sign on slowing down. Instantly update the look and feel of your interior with the rose gold trend this year. This warm metal is easily infused with any current colour scheme and screams sophistication. To complete the look, try pairing it with Heart Wood, Dulux’s Colour of the Year. This warm pink is ideal for adding a calm and cosy feel to any room, and is perfect for pairing with the rose gold accessories for a contemporary look.

For a cool splash of colour opt for deep rich blues. This year will see the return of a classic nautical theme, with an updated twist. Keep your eye out for deep indigo and rich sea blues in a range of finished and textures.

We all enjoy having a light and bright house, but this year deep and dark interior is showing more popular than ever. Envisage navy blues and charcoal greys for a sophisticated and atmospheric finish.


Now that the colour is chosen it is time to start painting, but this year don’t limit yourself to a solid colour per wall. Instead experiment with shapes, sizes, this year ombre wall, stencils and block colours for a fun and unique take on decorating.


If painting isn’t for you, you can quickly update your home with new wallpaper this season. Expect to see bold botanical prints, light reflecting metals and rich textures throughout the wallpaper aisle this year.
