In a recent article, we talked about why 2018 should be the year you invest in a luxury apartment. Of course, that's only the first step in securing yourself an incredible Sydney lifestyle. You'll also need to decorate your new pad, and the interior design choices you make can have a significant impact on how much you enjoy living in the space.
To help you out, we've compiled a few of the most popular trends that are set to dominate interior design in 2018, so that you can make sure your apartment is at the cutting edge of style.
1. Invest in greenery
Just because your new apartment is located high in the sky overlooking the city, doesn't mean you still can't have plenty of greenery in and around your apartment. In fact, a big part of what makes Crown Groups' Waterfall development in Waterloo so unique is the emphasis that our design team has placed on combining natural and manmade elements.
This creates a tranquil atmosphere that really does make heading home after a long day at the office something of an escape. You can achieve the same result inside your luxury apartment, simply by investing in a few leafy plants to scatter in each room.
2. Geometric patterns
Moving on to the patterns and palettes that will dominate 2018, industry experts such as Pantone are predicting a huge resurgence in geometric designs – particularly in black and white. The great thing about this trend is that you have so many different ways of incorporating it into your home decor, depending on how bold you want to go. For example, black and white geometric tiles are a very striking look that may not appeal to everybody, whereas a few tasteful patterned cushions can add a little something extra to a room without going overboard.

Finally, perhaps the biggest interior design trend for 2018 (and beyond) is metallics. Copper, bronze and a plethora of other finishes have come back in a big way, and are the must-have item in the world's most stylish apartments. Like geometric patterns, there's no need to go overboard, and the style may even look best when it's used with subtlety. For example, copper utensils in the kitchen, or bronze door handles.
Regardless of how you chose to decorate your new luxury apartment, you can rest assured that the investment is one that will serve you well in the long term – long after countless trends have been and gone! For more information on the Crown Group's developments, contact our team today.
