You scored your dream home–– now it’s time to infuse some style into your space.
In 2020, there’s no denying the maximalist trend is continuing to grow. Urban dwellers are moving away from the dense apartment boxes they’re used to, toward creating more expressive & uplifting interiors.
We’re bringing you this year’s top trends to inspire feng shui around every corner.
Bold color, prints, and patterns
Looking to adopt a more optimistic mood, urban dwellers seek rich colors, bold patterns, shapes and textures. The 2020 color forecast from Dulux, the British paint company, points out four distinct color palettes that will dominate in 2020-2021 – you can check it out here!
One growing trend in making a bold statement is eye-catching tilework in powder rooms and bathrooms, as well as pops of color with doors, furniture, and paint/wallpaper choice.
In 2020, the trend of increased eco-consciousness has outgrown the early adopters and pushed mainstream. Sustainability in home decorating and increased use of recycled materials are becoming more affordable and easier to reach. Consumers are showing a growing interest in new materials and wanting to understand their source and the effects this has on their lifecycles, people, and our environment. New codes of ethics are coming to life.
Back to nature
Now more than ever, people are returning to simplicity. Minimalism from an interior design perspective looks like organic shapes, natural tones, botanical prints, replications of wood grains and stone veining on pillows, rugs, and upholstery. There’s nothing that grounds a space quite like the inspiration of nature.
Urban dwellers are also adopting more greenery into their lives. The urban jungle trend continues to grow in popularity as more and more homeowners learn about the benefits of living with plants.
Decluttering, slow decorating and maximising the available natural light are also in focus.
Vegetable fibers are the hippest interior trend in 2020
Speaking of nature, vegetable fibers are still on the rise. This one will come as no surprise as the boho trend has made such a huge comeback in interiors this year. The theme of organic materials and vegetable-based fibers is set to continue for seasons to come. The presence of wicker, jute and rattan will become commonplace, and rich textural expression will be the headline story.
Basket walls have been trending strongly for some time. If you type in “basket wall” on Pinterest or Instagram, you will be scrolling for hours! Putting up such a collage is an easy and inexpensive way to decorate an empty wall, while giving the interior a great deal of character. With so many colors and basket designs available, you’ll definitely find the perfect style for your home.
And there you have it – the top interior trends of 2020 to give your new space life.
