The beauty of any design is its ability to transform, adapt, and integrate style and function-enhancing inspirations. The 2020 trends in home decor design exemplify this in a way that tells a tale. Below are some of the trending home décor for 2020.
Let’s begin with color. Though the year’s Pantone color, Classic Blue, supports cool tones, a new trend is emerging. Embracing earth tones is one of the trends in color interior design in the year 2020. Olive green, yellow ock, and burnt orange are shades that offer not only energy but also the great outdoors connection.
They mimic natural elements of wood, plants, and metals allow furniture and accessories to create a relaxing atmosphere, much like outside. That’s a nice feeling for those of us spending a lot of time indoors. That doesn’t mean that you have to go neutral or too free! Bold in the shape of black doors or a dark chocolate velvet sofa.
It is a curvy shape re-emergence. Rounded furniture, influenced by the 60s and 70s, makes it way-back but with a twist of modernity. Line and curve mesh to emphasize the elegance of the shape. We see upholstered pieces like sofas, chaises, and benches as guidelines in furniture, built with undulation and asymmetry. When looking for Living Room Design Ideas, it is fashionable to see curved sofas, as they encourage conversation.
This year these free-form designs will hit their height, giving the nod to organic shape. With the need to welcome nature’s calming energies into our homes more than ever, this makes sense. Technology that emulates waves, circles, and curves a softness we like.
Floral wallpaper was one of those designs for home decoration that has stood the test of time. We’re not thinking about the granny or hippie kind, but about designs that draw from contemporary style and give every wall a wow factor. Current wallpaper patterns can be found in different sizes and designs to match multiple decor types with an appeal for bright and contrasting colors. Add personality to your new dining room in the middle of the century with moody peonies on a black backdrop. Brighten up your boho bedroom with a wildflower garden as an accent.
Floral wallpapers tend to be a popular option for bathrooms and entrance areas. Limited in size, this choice to cover a wall adds appeal and whimsy. Remember, there are several different adhesive choices to play with if the commitment is overwhelming.
Biophilic design is a trend in interior design in 2020, integrating natural elements (materials, light, and vegetation) into modern built environments that directly influence our overall health. Research indicates that the integration of direct or indirect nature components into the built environment has played a role in reducing stress and regulating blood pressure and heart rate rates. This style of design also increases efficiency, innovation, and self-reported wellness levels. The remarkable outcome, right? So, in fact, how does that look?
Layered Contrasting Decor
Design is moving away from matching elements that give a subtle and neutral look. Instead, we see a moment in the form of colors, textures, and patterns for high contrast design. What that means is if you wanted to paint a bright blue (hello, Pantone Classic Blue) on your kitchen cabinets or add noisy tiles, now is your chance. The trick is to lean into balance, contrasting with healthy, timeless balancing choices.
The stuff that makes for diverse architecture is mixing old and new. And this trend is now expanding into other types of interior design. For certain antique accessories, go with most modern or contemporary furniture and pepper or vice versa. The contrast between looks adds a unique appeal to spaces.
