Natural Materials Full Moodboard

As a nation, we are obsessed with interior design and home inspiration with more choice than ever before when it comes to decorating our homes.

In a recent survey, it was found that over a quarter of UK homeowners (26 per cent) consider changing their interior scheme at least once a month. It was also discovered that on average people look for inspiration on social media for home trends five times a week.

With so many trends to choose from it can be difficult to know which direction to take when it comes to decorating. The research conducted by Berkeley Group discovered the most popular trends this season for homeowners:

  1. Natural materials – 29 per cent
  2. Floral fabrics and wallpapers – 13.4 per cent
  3. Abstract art and geometric patterns – 13 per cent
  4. Curved furniture – 12 per cent
  5. Velvet furniture and furnishings – 11 per cent

With the rise of the Hinch generation, over 32 per cent of men and 40 per cent of women were found to consider themselves to be “house proud”, stating that having a beautiful interior has a positive impact on their wellbeing.

When it comes to finding interior inspiration, a third of 18-24-year olds turn to social media influencers as their primary source of inspiration, whilst a quarter of this age group are also influenced by bloggers when it comes to choosing their home style.

One fifth (21 per cent) of all homeowners find their interior inspiration on social media, and on average it was found that people followed at least six interior accounts.

In the research, it also emerged that Location Location Location, Homes Under the Hammer, and Grand Designs were the nation’s favourite property TV shows.

Check out our guide to the best interior trends below, inspired by Berkeley Group’s design expertise.
