Goddard Littlefair Director and Co-Founder, Jo Littlefair, was invited by Novus Homes to share her predictions for what’s in and what’s out for the upcoming year.

Discussing key interior design trends for 2019, Jo commented: ‘A huge trend, already underway, but which is long-term and not a passing fad is biophilia, the hypothesis that humans have an innate propensity to connect with the natural world. This increasingly needs to be recognised in interior spaces too, not only by bringing the outside in through open doors, windows or cut flowers, for example, but via more subtle connections, from tactile, natural materials to art curation choices. In terms of materials, metallic ceramics are starting to come up a lot on our radar, whilst a colour prediction would be subtle citrics, from burnt orange to dusky lemon.’
