  • Hello my name's Laura Crombie from Real Homes and I'm here at Birmingham's NEC for

  • Spring Fair. This is the biggest trade event in the UK for interiors and it's

  • where the trends for 2019 are being shaped. When we came to Spring Fair last

  • year we saw a lot of black being used as an accent for the soft pastel colors

  • that were everywhere. This year it's gone bigger and it's gone bolder, so we're

  • seeing furniture, we're seeing lighting, really big, structural, statement pieces.

  • What keeps it modern, because I know you're probably worrying that it's gonna

  • look a little bit shiny and a little bit cheap maybe, it's the matte finish that

  • keeps it really chic and just makes a great backdrop. One of the things

  • that it's been paired with everywhere is brass. This time last year

  • if we talked about metallics, it was all about copper, but things have moved on

  • since then and now we're seeing brass and gold everywhere. This stand behind me

  • is a perfect example so we've got the gold pendant lights, we've got

  • candlesticks, we've got trays, we've got lamps, honestly

  • it can be used on everything. One of the things that brass works perfectly

  • against is the new neutral backdrop we're seeing this year there's no grey.

  • Honestly, I'm as surprised as you are but grey is gone, instead we're seeing

  • much softer creams, we're seeing spiced honey, which is obviously Dulux's

  • colour of the year for this year, we're seeing corals, we're seeing pinks, and

  • it's just a warmer, softer feel and the brass goes beautifully with it, as does

  • the black furniture, because it really stands out and makes a statement. One of

  • the things that brass is brilliant at is really showing off greens. Take a look at

  • this plant pot here, I love this and it's a really affordable way to bring brass

  • into your home. I'd love to hang them off my bookshelves in my living room and

  • then inside you can pop some plants. This one looks real but it's not

  • Now if you're anything like me, plants probably have a limited lifespan in your

  • house. I'm going to let you into a little secret - I don't have the real thing

  • anymore, I just go for some faux foliage instead. There's been such advances in the

  • technology used to create these that they look so realistic now and it's a

  • great way to bring the outdoors in. One of the best things about faux foliage is

  • that you can use it in any room of the house and it'll help to tie your whole

  • scheme together, it also works really well we've black and brass as we've

  • talked about earlier. And as you can see behind me now, we're not just talking

  • small potted plants and cacti, you can get a full range of both foliage now,

  • from these structural grasses to hanging baskets, even a full sized tree

  • If you've tuned into our SoRealHomes videos then you'll have joined us inside the homes of Instagram stars like Lisa Dawson and Amy Wilson from This Style Rocks

  • and the thing that's best about their dining rooms is that they've got

  • their own bars. This one is absolutely beautiful. It's maybe a little bit big

  • for the average home, but it's black, it's got brass ,so it's ticking off two of the

  • key trends that we've already talked about. I think this would fill my whole

  • living room, so if it's a little bit too big for your house, another trend that

  • you can easily tap into is this beautiful olive green colour. Fake plants

  • have been used as an accent, but if you want to take it one step further, then

  • green is the go-to shade that we're seeing absolutely everywhere. We're

  • seeing every shade under the sun, from olive green, to sage green, to emerald

  • green, cooking apple green, British racing green,

  • or this gorgeous sludgy mossy colour that we're seeing here. Whichever shade

  • you choose, and however bold you are with how you use it, it's going to create the

  • perfect backdrop for the black furniture we saw earlier, and the beautiful

  • brass accents. Another thing we've seen a lot of when we've been walking around

  • the show is exposed wood it's literally everywhere, so here we've got a bookcase

  • with a nice metal frame and it looks really, really good against the crisp

  • matte black that we saw earlier, but you can see in everything from pendant

  • lights to fruit bowls to dining tables and chairs

  • Talking about natural materials, take a look at this gorgeous table - it's got a lovely rough finish and

  • you've even got the exposed bark down here, which is just so tactile. Another

  • nature-inspired finish that we've seen coming through is honeycomb - not the real

  • stuff, unfortunately, it but it's this beautiful hexagon pattern that you can

  • see here. It's like a new take on geometrics, which aren't going anywhere

  • We've seen it on these bowls, these gorgeous canisters, which have lots of uses in the

  • kitchen, and there's also been loads of other examples. Take a look...

  • The key thing I've notice while walking around this year, is that the trends

  • aren't intimidating. For the last few years we've had things like Maximalism,

  • clashing colors and patterns, and they were very easy to feel intimidated

  • by, but this year you could easily invest in a beautiful black table, some nice

  • brass accents, and some gorgeous faux foliage. If you're buying for the home

  • this year, now you know exactly what you should be looking out for. You're going to

  • find these trends everywhere from your supermarket to the high street and

  • online. If you need more inspiration or advice, just head to or

  • check out our SoRealHomes videos on YouTube.
