The new decade is under way and from a home design perspective, it is time to focus on the year ahead. For many of us, the new year heralds some element of a home design refresh, especially as Spring approaches. In this article we review the top home Décor trends for 2020.
Almost every home design blog is declaring blue as the new grey. Thanks in part to Pantone and their “Classic Blue” (a navy shade) colour of the year. Interior designers the world over are raving about various strong blue shades.
On the Walls
Floral and traditional wall papers are in. Graham and Brown have a wonderful wallpaper of the year called Bloomsbury Neo Mint.
If the thought of floral wallpaper fills you with dread, there is also a resurgence of 70s style, geometric designed wall papers. Take a look at the fabulous designs available on the Wallpaperking website.
Strong bold colours are dominating the paint world and are not being restricted to the walls, dark painted internal doors and ceilings are featuring heavily this year.
Love your Curves
Curves are big for 2020, think scalloped edges, large curvy sofas and spindle legged furniture. We love the curvy Perle sofa from Sofology, they have a range of colours and styles, the velvet option is sure to be a big hit this year! Team it with this scalloped edged mirror from John Lewis
The Nordic style from last year is continuing to be popular and is evolving. With neutral shades, natural fabrics and materials, this simple design trend is perfect if you love a calming ambience. Choose textured, plain dyed fabrics and natural woods.
In the Kitchen
The kitchen trends for 2020 are moving away from all white cupboards, marble work surfaces and open shelved designs, towards mixing natural wood accessories and coloured cabinets. Take a look at the stunning range of blue kitchens available from Howdens.
In the Bedroom
In their guide to the top trends for this year, Good Housekeeping list Canopy Beds as a surprise entry. If you’re thinking heavy drapes and large headboards, think again, this trend is rather minimalistic, more bare natural wood or acrylic and chrome designs are in for 2020. Here is a wonderful example of the acrylic style from Bernhardt Interiors.
In the Bathroom
Free standing bathtubs are back, but rather than the ultra-modern design we have seen in recent years, this trend takes on a more vintage feel. Clawed feet and deep curves feature heavily. This double ended bath from UKBathrooms gives you the best of modern design with antique style features.
Rattan and Wicker Furniture
No longer to be relegated to the garden, rattan and wicker furniture are featuring indoors too! From coffee and side tables to dining chairs and lighting, rattan is back inside! A wonderful example of this returning trend is this stylish dining chair from Tikamoon.
Home décor is all about you and your tastes, take from these suggestions the ideas that speak to you and don’t be afraid to layer the different styles and eras. We hope you found our Home Décor Trends for 2020 useful, have fun reimaging your space!
