Palmer, who is also a successful author and charismatic judge on Australian TV series ‘The Block,’ expects clay, cream and coral tones to be popular in 2019.

Additionally, he predicts that metallics will remain a central point of interest in interior design palettes. Combining durability with classic appeal, metal finishes such as stainless steel, nickel and chrome are timeless and enduring inclusions with brass and gold continuing to have appeal well into 2019.
