Last year, we filled our homes with tropical jungle prints, flamboyant flamingos and metallic accents, in every possible application.
 

So, what are the predictions for 2018?

 
1.  Glam dark woods
 
Furniture is set to head back from the hugely popular pale bleached Scandi trend to the dark side.  Dark tones signify the revival for retro glamour.
 
You can glam your own wood by requiring advice at Pupkewitz MegaBuild stores for suitable products.
 
2.  Artisan textures
 
Texture is big on anything with a natural handmade feel, with materials such as rattan and wicker in both furniture and lighting.
 
Never under estimate the power to embrace abstract combinations in various textures.
 
Pupkewitz MegaBuild Lifestyle offers an exciting new range of wicker patio furniture and natural bamboo lighting options.
 
3.  Rich pigments
 
Many interiors still prefer grey and accents of chartreuse as their natural choice.  However, colour is set to be much bolder and brighter this year.  Moody interiors loaded with atmosphere are more popular than ever with vibrant shades of violets, navy and emerald green.
 
Pupkewitz MegaBuild stores offer the whole shebang when it comes to paint.  You can mix and select the right product and colour for your dream room.
 
4.  Tropical prints
 
The tropical trend is still trending this year.  Although it's less vibrant and more about mixing plenty of green lush.
 
With our vertical garden systems, you can create your own living green wall.  This can either be an herb garden for your kitchen or an off-set wall behind your freestanding bath.  Let our team in-store assist you.
 
5.  Metallic accents
 
This year, metallic accents move from rose gold and copper to brass.
 
Why brass?
 
Brass is the most sophisticated and organic of the metallic colour palette.  To add a luxurious finish to any room, I recommend brass accessories like mirrors, lamps, small table lights etc.  Tip: keep your metallic accents humble.
 
Pupkewitz MegaBuild offers the complete Hertex Haus universal table furniture range.  Currently only available on order.
 
Trendy Tiles
 
Miles of tiles...and in 2018 it will still be a very good time for tiles.  Tiles on walls, floors, back splashes or even ceilings.  We have seen more colours, shapes and patterns emerged.  The all -time favourite clean white subway or hexagon tile will not be your most original choice for 2018.
 
Look out for these following trends in 2018
 
Colourful glazed tiles, pattern tiles, metallic accents, mixing tiles with wood, chevron, reclaimed wood look, industrial concrete, marvellous marble and black and white tiles.
