Art is so subjective that it’s hard to think of it as following a trend line. However, there are certain types of art that appear to resonate with both collectors, interior designers and artists at any given moment in time. In 2018, it was modern portraiture and outdoor settings. Before that, it was traditional Scandinavian looks. Which artworks are inspiring interior trends in 2019?

For answers, we turned to the curators at the online art gallery, Saatchi Art, which is known for offering museum-quality paintings, drawings, sculpture and photography. Saatchi Art just released a trend report that highlights six key art themes that inspired this year’s top interior trends. If you’re looking to give the walls of your home an update, read further.

Less is more? So last year. 2019 is the year of excess. Think more is more with “intricate patterns, bold colors and a lavish layering of accent pieces and art,” according to the report. “Gallery walls are a hallmark of maximalism, so fill your space with striking artwork and be confidently on-trend.”  View the complete Maximalism collection.

2.  Mixed Metals

Metallic tones are back in a big way this year. “This trend harmonizes gold, silver, and other metals—and isn’t limited to fixtures or hardware,” says the report. “Complement your metallic finishes by displaying art that shines with metallic tones.” View the complete Mixed Metals collection.

We already know that handmade materials and objects are having an interior design moment, so this trend is no surprise. “The artisanal home is distinguished by well-curated art made from fiber, ceramics, and other natural materials,” the report notes.

4. Modern Botanicals

Green is a defining trend for 2019 — from emerald-hued furniture to real live botanicals. It goes for art too. “Throughout the year, expect to see more interiors filled with rich shades of green,” says the report. “Upgrade your lackluster rooms to a tropical paradise with botanical-inspired art in natural hues.”  View the complete Modern Botanicals collection.

5. Black and White

Scandinavian design has always celebrated craftsmanship and simplicity. Now it has reinvented itself yet again “with earthy tones and sculptural motifs,” declares the report. “Embrace bold shapes and hues like sage and blush to create a welcoming and elegant space.” View the complete Nordic Neutrals collection.
