Spring is the in the air! This is the perfect time of the year to throw open the windows, let some fresh air in and look at your home in a new light. If decorating an area of your home was on your to-do list for the year, this is the perfect time to get started by embracing this year’s design trends.
A classic staple, neutrals are big for 2020. In particular shades of gray and beige. Cooler tones will fade out to make room for warm tones, which can help make your home feel open and inviting. Neutrals are great options for walls, but don’t limit them. They also work well for furniture and other fabrics in your home (drapes, bedding, etc.).
Interior design firms are seeing black coming back in a big way – all black everything! While previously ruled out because it can make your home feel small and confined, designers are now saying black can make your home look elegant and trendy. To break up the dark hue, pair it with light contrasting colors. Black and white pairings, in particular, are huge this year.
Carrying through from previous years (everyone remembers millennial pink), designers are still embracing the feminine color pallet as an accent tone. Subtle shades of pink, purple, baby blue and green work well with a neutral color pallet.
Classic Blue was named as the Pantone Color of the Year for 2020. Try incorporating this into your home decor as an accent color or within your artwork.
The geometric pattern has been steadily increasing in popularity over the past few years, and it has found its place in 2020. It’s so widely popular that it can be found on everything from wallpaper to couches, bedding and more. The trend of geometric patterns will likely be around for a few years, so it’s important to find the balance. Limit usage by picking an area in your home you want to use geometric patterns to make a bold statement.
This is a new twist on an old trend. We’re not talking about the flowery furniture from your grandmother’s house, florals have made a comeback in a more abstract way. Look for floral patterns that use different sizes with bright and contrasting colors. Florals are great options for wallpaper and fabric in your home.
Minimalism is out and maximalism is in. Leaving minimalism in 2019, this year is about embracing the idea that more is more. We’re not talking about creating clutter, but playing with and layering combinations of patterns, colors and textures. Try mixing different pieces and levels into your decor with metals, dark woods, wallpaper, artwork and mirrors.
This is a new trend that’s aimed to increase your connection to the environment by incorporating natural elements into your design in an organic way. This can be done very simply through the addition plants and earthy elements like stone and recycled or reclaimed wood, but it’s also about looking at the architecture of your space and how the natural elements play together. Try uncovering the windows to allow more light into your space or clearing out some of your furniture to create a more open and airy feeling.
