Here at CovetED, our aim is to always help you and inspire you. – Having trouble planning a home makeover? – Worry not, this list comprises 2019’s hottest trends to follow as well as home inspiration from timeless design projects.
We love that when it comes to interior design, Jonathan Adler‘s approach is either ‘everything or nothing’: “One object is all it takes to change your mood, the room, or even your entire world.”
His 2019 Spring collection is a reflection of that, bringing us to a world of colour, mixed shapes and varied materials; the rules were made to be broken, and according to Jonathan Adler – “Life is too short to look back and see an endless haze of beige.”
We are particularly in love with Jonathan Adler’s living room design concepts for the new season. As you can see by the above picture he invites us to mix it up by, for example, pairing a modern table with sculptural chairs for a grounding effect.
How can you do this? Look at your living room, bedroom (or what other home division), like a white canvas that you will carefully fill in.
This is particularly important when you know beforehand that you will be mixing lots of different colours, fabrics or shapes. – “My philosophy is to build a timelessly chic foundation and then accessorize and add colour with abandon.”, says Jonathan Adler.
Another fundamental rule to keep in mind when decorating your home is that if you really want it to stick out, you need to reference your own personality in it. According to Jonathan Adler, there is no particular colour or shape that you should be following. Even though some studies may say that a blue bedroom could help you sleep better, or that a red kitchen makes you hungry; according to Jonathan Adler you can’t view interior design in a pre-defined manner – “We live in an anything-goes world, and if you want to channel Diana Vreeland’s all-red ‘garden in hell’ living room, then do it.”

As a leader when it comes to setting interior design trends, Ryan Korban, is one of those names that has to be mentioned no matter the season. A recent project that proves exactly this, is the beautiful Tribeca loft, where deep contrasts of white and black can be seen all over the property.
The kitchen, for example, is absolutely divine and features a neutral palette consisting of mostly white and black, with the statement marble centrepiece as the highlight of the space.
Not only that, but the kitchen also fits perfectly with the airy yet edgy loft. Everything in the loft was carefully curated with a mix of custom pieces as well as furnishings by Karl Springer, Jean-Michel Frank, Milo Baughman, Christian Liaigre, and Vladimir Kagan.

Everything Thomas O’Brien creates is reflective of his motto – “I like practical and useful things as well as fine and rare things”.
As the founder of and President of Aero Studios – one of America’s leading design firms – Thomas O’Brien, is famous for having been able to translate modernism into a warm and livable aesthetic.
His projects span from – private residences to commercial properties; product design to brand and fine art consulting. – The key to his success as an interior designer lies in his master talent to combine furniture pieces from the most varied historical origins. This vintage elegance that he is able to apply in all of his interior design projects brings to his clients a rare sense of comfort and refreshed familiarity.
The greatest attribute of Thomas O’Brien as an interior designer is that you can re-visit his older projects, and still feel that they are very much on trend. Great interior design is made to last decades, and not to be replaced in just a couple of years. – “Your home should tell the story of your life”, says Thomas O’Brien.
The interior designer’s New York (Manhattan) flat, is a great example of that. The living room counts with 20ft-high ceilings but a small footprint and is decorated in a modern American style. As you can see by the picture, Thomas O’Brien tends to use eclectically-framed pictures as well as objects as a backdrop to furniture so that our eyes are drawn to certain focal points.

Bunny Williams is one of the best interior designers of our time, known for her luxurious take on home decor.
As a great interior designer, her style is reflective of several trends, but her overall interior design style is elegant and long-lasting.
Her work at an old Mediterranean style villa in Palm Beach is a great example of how to create sophisticated, bold, yet classic interiors.
As we know one of the top colour trends for 2019, includes dusk blue, and this vila sure is filled with it. – In the new guesthouse, the bedroom looking out onto the pool is swathed in “watery blue colours” while the living room includes dusk blue tiled walls – a modern take on the classic Mediterranean wall style.
This is where Bunny Williams is able to make a difference and actually bring innovation into the picture – “The walls were all done with photo imaging. You just lay out the images of the tiles on a computer, and they’re photo-printed, and then you hang up the result like wallpaper.” says the designer.

Yabu Pushelberg’s new releases include two different collections; the Puddle side tables and Noce dining and lounge chairs, which were designed and produced in collaboration with Henge – an Italian furniture brand.
The collection is elegant and has a strong nature relation to it as you can see by the pictures. The tables come in flattering round shapes while the chairs are made of chunky wooden legs. Metal, a material that will continue to be favoured throughout 2019, is strong within the collection, and present in almost all table designs.
Great inspiration for your living room? We think so!
Peter Marino is known for his capacity to create ‘luxury without excess’, making him the architect of choice for developers and luxury brands, such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and more.
Even though he has created more retail design concepts that we can imagine (and really good ones for that matter), when he decides to embark on a private home project, the results are just as impressive.
This private estate located in Biscayne Bay is the perfect example of how to seamlessly blend architecture with interior design.
The entire property is filled with art, happy colours, and dazzling shapes. The master bedroom is a great example of Marino’s interior design savoir-faire; it is filled with painted stripes, with Josef Hoffmann table lamps, and where antique Phulkari textiles cover the custom bed.
