Residential interior design makes a house a home. Here at Estilo Architects, we take inspiration from our clients and current design trends to create timeless spaces that can be lived in and admired for many years to come. We take a look at the 2019 design trends we feel will dominate the interior design space this year.
Homeowners have more access than ever to design ideas from around the world. Many of our clients come to our initial meeting with a variety of ideas, eager to make their favourite designs a part of their own homes. The wealth of design inspiration on social media and in magazines allows people to 'borrow' style ideas and interpret them into their own sense of style.
We collaborate with our clients to bring their ideas and inspiration to life. Whatever your inspiration, our design team will work with you to bring all of the elements together to create a design that reflects your personality and makes a statement about you.
A Playful style
Whimsical themes will feature prominently throughout 2019. In art, we will see traditional pieces juxtaposed on modern backgrounds to create a completely different piece of art. Graffiti will be used to bring once monochrome sculptures to life. The feature wall will be given a makeover from a single block colour to textured designs and murals. All of these modern overhauls lend themselves to allowing your personality to shine through, as no one piece will ever be the same.
Biophilic design is a concept that incorporates the outside, natural environment into an outdoor space, such as a home or office. This inherently gentle way of integrating nature into our lives has made its way onto the trend lists around the world. Benefits, such as enhanced mood, creativity and productivity, are proven and bringing the outdoors in will remain popular in 2019.
Biophilic design creates a natural environment in which to live, work and study, making us feel connected to nature. Subtle ways to introduce nature into design include selecting natural colours, materials and lighting. You could add a water feature or live plant feature should you want to explore biophilic design elements in your home. Alternatively, you can take a more subtle approach and incorporate biophilic elements through natural textures and soft furnishings, such as rattan chairs, concrete plan pots and jute.
Monochrome and greys have been replaced with warmer tones such as ochre, burnt orange and terracotta. With Pantone's 2019 colour of the year announced as 'Living Coral', we are already seeing earthier tones come through on colour palettes. Green tones remain on mood boards in the Estilo Architects, with grass greens and teals becoming client favourites.
Don't limit yourself to using bold colours on walls. They can enhance a room when incorporated as accents, such as cushions, bedding, artwork and rugs. Lighter pallets make spaces feel bright and the warm. While earthier tones can add an extra, vibrant layer to a room.

Interior design done well has the potential to improve lives. Our homes should reflect our personal tastes and be uniquely ours, which is why Estilo Architects understands the design of a home’s interior is as fundamental as the exterior architecture and construction. Residential interior design makes a house a home.
Our primary goal for any residential interior design project is to shape the experience of interior space in ways that are both beautiful and functional. Interior design is so much more than interior decoration and the Estilo Architects’ interior designers draw their inspiration from the environment, architecture and product design in addition to traditional interior decoration.
When embarking on your design journey with Estilo Architects, your interior designer will work with you to realise your vision for exceptional interior design. By engaging all of your senses, true harmony within the space can be created.
Estilo Architects approaches interior design projects in four unique stages:
Estilo Architects offers turnkey solutions for the residential sector. From the design of your dream home to the construction and handover, the Estilo Architects’ team provides a single point of contact, with all design and construction services provided under one roof.
In this phase, ideas begin to take shape. Whether you are drawing from the design trends of last year, such animal prints and greenery, or are looking to incorporate 2019’s brand new trends, Estilo Architect’s interior design team is passionate about design features that will bring life into your space. Using colour maps and mood imagery, the team will provide you with options to excite your senses. Will you opt for art deco or modernism? Minimalism or a house that is full of memories? No matter what our clients envision, we can provide a luxury design that offers unparalleled comfort and functionality.
During the concept design, Estilo Architects works with clients to finalise details, such as the layout of furniture and lighting plan. The interior designer provides preliminary floor plans and makes recommendations on which materials best reflect the client and complement the space. Estilo Architects sources materials within client budgets, ensuring cost considerations are respected while never compromising on quality.
During the development of the design, Estilo Architects provides clients with a number of options to experience the space before work commences. From room cards to 3D visualisation images, clients are able to see what the final space will look and feel like. During this phase, the final furniture layout is agreed and a full product list with prices and pictures is provided. We ensure there are no unpleasant surprises – Estilo Architects observes the project, acting as the client’s representative and resolving any issues as they arise so you do not have to.
