We’re crushing on these inspiring looks that are perfect for the Aussie home.
1. 70s Revival
We’re fully on board this trend. Thankfully we don’t have to transform our homes into the set of the Brady Bunch to look cool! Instead, the strong revival of seventies inspired design is seeing a modern take on those style canons authentic to the decade.
Seventies interior design sees the use of deep brown tones, glass objects as decorative accents, and layers upon layers of natural textures. Very hygge! Seventies Revival particularly suits Australian living. Our natural palettes whether they be country, coastal or urban and love for bringing the outdoors in, works a treat with a seventies retro twist.

2. Jewel Tones For Interiors
What’s more luxurious than dripping in precious gems and jewels? Muted deep hues in sapphires, garnets, and emeralds, mingled with delicious hues in chocolates and merlots is the colour palette for 2019. Embrace those rich colours in cushions, throws, bedding and feature walls. Layering pieces in a lustrous velvet is our pick for adding in another level of luxe!
Haymes Paints have created the colour concept ‘Verge’ as part of their trend forecasting. We can totally imagine renovating with feature wall colour ‘Strong Teal’.
3. Scandinavian Layering
Ok, so Scandinavian design is more a style philosophy for us here at My Hygge Home. We’re sharing a few ways you can embrace this trend into your own home, even if you’re style isn’t dedicated to the Scandinavian look.
Cold, dreary winters and blistering summers is the climate of both Scandinavian and Australian seasons. Cosy up in winter with a snuggly faux fur throw. This is a great layering piece that brings a depth of texture complimentary to many plain sofa fabrics.
During warmer months, translate a cosy hygge feeling into the lively outdoors with string lights. Fairy lights, festoons and lanterns mimic that warm glow of a fire in a subtle and dreamy way. You’ll find yourself spending more time outdoors in the evening as the soft light is the ideal background to any nighttime picnic, romantic dinner or summer party!
4. Indoor plants
Fact: Giving your plant (baby) a name helps it grow! We’re totally guilty of thinking of some our favourite indoor plants as kids. But, when you put effort and love into watching something grow, it’s hard not to! Opt for robust and gorgeous species like the Fiddle Leaf Fig, Peace Lily, Rubber Tree, Monstera, Calathea, or String of Pearls (for that insta-worthy cascade). Before you nip out to your local florist or nursery, make sure you have a plant-friendly spot in mind. This is also the perfect excuse to pick up a trendy new pot. You’re welcome.
The Design Villa are masters of interior greenery! We love how they make indoor plants a focal point.
5. Barn doors
There’s so many good things about this trend, we’re just going to list them.
- A barn door is DIY friendly.
- Use a barn door to add a pop of colour to a neutral or monochrome space.
- Barn doors can be made from recycled materials (bonus rustic charm).
- It’s an expensive option to update a space and stay on trend.
- A barn door is a space saver as you don’t need any extra room for a door swing
- Create the illusion of extra height by hanging above the architrave.
Pinterest is king of design inspiration. Anyone else suddenly feel the need to paint their doors a deep teal?
