Top 10 Timeless Design Trends Identified

Style-bible NZ House & Garden features the top 10 design trends, all carefully selected for their timelessness and versatility, in its February issue.

Editorial Director Michal McKay describes the trends as imagination-starters. “Rather than a complete interior overhaul we are suggesting readers take inspiration from the trends line-up and make them their own,” she says.

“We aren’t highlighting fleeting fads. Instead, our first ever ‘top 10’ trends will stand the test of time and people may want to draw on the ideas for long-term investment items such as furnishings and wall coverings.”

NZ House & Garden’s top 10 design picks are:
1. Wallpaper – bold and impactful
2. Florals – all things bright and beautiful
3. Glass – new, used and, most importantly, beautiful
4. Luxury – textiles and adornment top the list
5. Colour – top shades of 2007
6. Plastic – yes it can be fantastic
7. Pattern – spots, swirls and stripes provide something for everyone
8. Ceramics – decorative and dramatic
9. Shine – gloss and sheen = brilliance
10. Handcrafts – add interest through exclusivity

The February issue of NZ House & Garden magazine is on sale from Monday 22 January and retails for $8.90. Visit for inspiration and information 24/7.
