Why decorate your walls with pictures you change from time to time, when you can make your whole wall look like a piece of art itself? If it’s for your bedroom: choose a calm color and match your bed linen and pillows with the colors of the wallpaper. We especially adore these green tones for the bedroom – dark blue has also been very popular, but has become a bit too common these days in our opinions. If you are in need of more inspiration regarding your bedroom, see our selected picks of cushions and blankets here . Picture by Murals Wallpaper.
Velvet is definitely not a new trend but it still tops as one of the biggest trends this year! Velvet has been seen a lot on furniture, bags, clothing etc. and we don’t want to miss t The velvet couch is maybe not the best choice for the family with small children since it’s truly a struggle to clean. If you are not really ready for a big velvet couch, you can always start by having velvet pillows like this one from GALERIEKECRANTZ . Take note of the marble tables – more about that later on in this post! Picture by Delightfull.eu and HemTrender.
Color of 2018: Ultra Violet
According to Pantone, the color of 2018 has been Ultra Violet! It’s impossible to avoid the blue-based purple this year when talking about interior design. The color is associated with mindfulness and connection which brings a feeling of calmness to your home. In many ways it’s also a very mysterious color that is hard to get tired of. Paint your whole wall in this ultra violet color or get a design piece like Ægget/Egg chair by Danish designer, Arne Jacobsen, in this hot color. You can even spice your wardrobe up with this super fashionable color with a sustainable rib t-shirt and silk skirt by Mette Frejvald . Read more about why Ultra Violet is the color of the year here.

The quickest way to get the ultimate hotel relaxing feeling in your home is by implementing really big curtains! You don’t even need to have super big windows to make a floor-to-ceiling curtain look good – take inspiration from the styling above. Choose a sheer curtain for your living room to have the light entering properly and go for a darker colored curtain for your bedroom. Make sure to have your smaller interior pieces match your curtain e.g. a vase or tray (see our selected picks here ). Picture by Boligmagasinet.
Get creative with tiles

You can change the look of your bathroom completely by getting creative with some beautiful tiles. It’s also a great tip for spicing up your kitchen! We especially have a big crush on these kinds of hexagon tiles. Picture by Helen Bankers.
Marble in all shades
You can never really go wrong with marble. It’s timeless and suits every room whether it is the smaller details or the bigger such as marble tables or floor. You can even combine this marble trend with the first one of this post – the wallpaper trend – by having a marble wallpaper. That’s some serious instagram goals right there! You can also settle with a small handmade marble container for food like this one by Laura Itkonen . Picture by OnlyDecoLove and ThinkImprint.
