Whether you’ve just got engaged over Christmas, or your 2019 wedding is fast approaching, there’s no denying that compiling your wedding gift list is one of the BEST parts of wedding planning. Especially so if you chose to work with our exclusive gift list partner, The Wedding Shop. As well as having an incredibly easy to use website and app, The Wedding Shop also have several beautiful showrooms dotted across the UK and Ireland so you can visit in person with your partner and browse their beautiful selection of products.
One of the many reasons we love working with The Wedding Shop is that they are always ahead of the game when it comes to interior trends. Even if you’re asking for honeymoon contributions, cash for house renovations or for charity (which are all possible via The Wedding Shop), it’s always lovely to have something physical on your list too. Especially something for the home, which you will treasure for years to come. So as a bit of New Year fun, we’ve asked The Wedding Shop team to share their 2019 gifting predictions, along with some of the beautiful homeware items you can add to your wedding gift list. Let’s get started shall we?
Decorative art has made a revival. Think line art, illustrations, geometric motifs and bold prints and colours used across homeware, as well as actual art. You can bring the Art Decor trend into your home easily with statement accessories such as cushions, wall hangings or for a standout gift on your wedding gift list, with art itself.
However if you’re not ready to make the commitment to wall art, you still can incorporate this trend into your home with arty tableware, or even art related coffee table books.
Gifts that are bright and bold will be popular in 2019, standout pieces of furniture like emerald velvet armchairs and clashing patterned cushions remain high on our best sellers list. Joyous jewel tones are not to be missed, adding an opulent pop of warmth and colour to your home and don’t be afraid to mix florals with geometrics. Loud decor is back and we’re loving the bold tones!
Think mixed metals and natural materials. Rich velvets, precious gems and shiny metalics are luxuries for the home that have now become luxuries that make great wedding gifts. This Luxe Decor trend can easily be introduced into your home with an on-trend bar cart, accessorised with distinctive glasses, jugs and coasters. Perfect for hosting future cocktail parties and dinner soirees!
From lampshades and rugs to dinner plates, toasters and towels, the options are limitless for you to bring the Pantone colour of the year, Living Coral, into your interiors. This shade is great for bringing your home to life, it is also super versatile so can look great in any room of your home. We love it paired with grey, blues and whites and it shows no sign of disappearing any time soon.
Texture is one of our favourite interior trends for 2019, you really can transform a room just by adding texture. Those pieces that have texture will really make your room stand out and create character in your living space. You can incorporate texture with rugs, cushions and throws, right through to your laundry basket. Rattan and artisanal touches make this trend the perfect way to update more scant Scandi interiors.
Succulents, botanical prints and luscious greenery are here to stay for 2019. This trend has evolved into something more luxurious and exotic with lush foliage prints and rich emerald tones. Bring the tropical greenery trend into your home with actual plants and botanics, or incorporate through textiles and prints.
