When it comes to interior design, some trends sustain the test of time and become timeless, whereas others can be a flighty passing phase that is dropped as quickly as it was picked up. Here are some of the most popular and sought-after interior themes and design trends of 2020 for your own inspiration and creative thrill.
The grey trend is slowly being pushed aside by deep navy blues and emerald greens. It was only a matter of time, and the change is welcomed. These colour tones add a look of exuberance and sophistication. There are many ways these colours can be introduced to your interior, whether you wish to be bold and impose it as a feature wall, or simply bring it to life in accent attributes like cushion covers, rugs and window treatments.
Curved sofas and luxurious high back accent chairs are stylish staple pieces and can enhance even the plainest of spaces in a really effortless way. Why not contemplate a traditional leather Chesterfield suite with soft curved edges and luxurious comfort as the statement piece for your living space. By offering a bespoke service, these Chesterfield suites are the ideal piece to update your home, giving an instant vibe of individuality and eclectic glamour.
With shoppers becoming more economically aware this trend is beginning to show within our interior design choices. Upcycling is a fantastic way to promote sustainability and also doesn’t break the bank – win, win! Online auction sites and second-hand selling apps are the ideal place to shop for upcycling projects. If you are really economically conscious there are even options to buy home furnishings manufactured from recycled materials, it is important to note that although a great cause, unfortunately these wares are quite costly due to the manufacturing efforts needed. A really positive consideration though, if within your budget!
Pastel Tones and Tranquil Hues
Think soft neutral greens and light pastel pinks, two very versatile shades both on their own or combined to complement each other. These colours offer a softness and pacifying feel to a room. These shades not only work well in living spaces but are adaptable to most rooms in the home – a tranquil green tone would look gorgeous in a bathroom space and a soft blush pink could work well to create a relaxing bedroom environment.
Texture Upon Texture
If colour isn’t really your thing, why not consider layering textures within your home instead? Textures are commonly implemented in the forms of cushions, throws and rugs but you are not restricted to just these methods. A wall tapestry is a creative way to add texture to a room, as well as fabric upholstered frames, table runners and dried or faux flowers.
Whilst on the subject of texture, one that really is the star of the show is velvet. From soft furnishings, carpets to curtains and cushion covers – this fabric is here to stay a while longer yet. Think plush high back velvet armchair and decadent velvet scatter cushions, this fabric is extremely versatile and suits many themes and décor styles. Velvet pieces give the look of extravagance and lavishness to a room often without the hefty price tag, what’s not to like?
Whether it’s bold patterned wallpaper, a lick of paint in a contrasting colour or a gallery wall – feature walls are an innovative way to add personality to a room. In 2020 however, interior design trends are becoming more daring and feature walls are no longer limited to just the one, some are wallpapering the whole room. Whilst in previous decades this may have seemed over the top and too much attitude, in 2020 this is a welcome change.
The love for Nordic interior design still remains, with the minimalist approach still very much relevant. The calming tones and natural feel of Scandinavian styles are achieved often effortlessly with little expense required. Neutral simple colour schemes, house plants, and enclosed storage is all that’s needed to complete a successful scandi look with the added chunky knit throw and light textured accent cushions for welcoming comfort and warmth.
It’s clear to see that 2020 incorporates both new exciting trends as well as some familiar ones from previous years, which interior trend takes your fancy?
