As we enter not only a new year but a fresh decade, you may be wondering what design trends lie on the horizon. If you are looking to renovate your home for 2020 or just curious of what we will see in the upcoming 12 months you’ve come to the right place!
Every now and then we could all use a little change; whether you need a major home venture, a small refresh or simply like to follow what’s new now I’ve gathered around for you what’s hot for 2020.
BLUE BLUE BLUE BLUE
Well I cannot start the list without Pantone Color of the Year: Classic Blue. A color that I’ve always shared my love and ultimate devotion to! Finally after all these years it was time for a blue to dominate the next 365 days (and another 365 days for me)
Classic Blue is clean and elegant but also really uplifting and (in comparison to the last few years) a really easy colour to incorporate into your home.
THE RISING OF PINK
The rates of the candy color is also on a rise with a variations of Pink. These trendy tones are all about different shades of pink, but they’re more subtle. Blush, millennial pink, bronze, taupe, and other light pink shades will work well in a neutral room.
A big player in the world of interior trends, here’s PaintBrand Dulux Colour of the Year: Tranquil Dawn. A very soft neutral green which is meant to offer an antidote to an “increasingly disconnected” modern society.
Arches are having a moment in the shape spotlight, gently curving across some of the hottest new hotels and restaurants in the world. Yet not too popular in homes Im sure this trend will invade residential spaces in 2020.
An ongoing trend since 2017, Terrazzo which was cool in the ’70s, tacky in the ’90s is striking with a bang in 2020. Invented in Venice when workers took leftover, odd-shaped marble pieces and used them for flooring, the colors and shapes and combinations for this flooring have become endless.
Limited to the floors (soooo 2019) we are starting to take terrazzo to the walls, splash backs and even entire bathroom. You can also find it in all different forms; from rugs and lamps to soap dishes and toilet brushes, so you could always incorporate this trend in more subtle ways…
As we are trying to become more eco conscious, we have to be more aware about reducing waste by recycling our homewares.
A hot topic in Fashion and other major fields, in the interiors world we can support by buying furniture made from local materials that have been sustainably sourced or buying products made from recycled materials.
Classicism is back! This year it time to embrace time-honored elements in a playful mood and without taking it too seriously. Busts and Grecian details add the perfect perspective to any contemporary setting creating rooms with more character and individuality.
VELVET IS STILL HERE
Velvet may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s going to be steaming hot and trendy in 2020. It’s the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. New velvet colors are emerging this year: I’m talking vibrant blues, pinks, burnt orange and shades of taupe. The possibilities for velvet furniture in 2020 are endless.
Earth tones like rich forest greens, taupe, and clay colors create a natural look that creates a zen-like environment made for meditation and unwinding after a long day. The colors and textures mimic that of wood, metals, and foliage found in nature’s most basic elements that are regularly used in the making of furniture and home accessories will dominate this year.
Minimalism is out and maximalism is in and it’s all about embracing the grandeur; Big, bold, bright colors and patterns, gaudy decor and colorful abstract paintings. It’s caring without actually caring.
