As we’re already nearing our third week of 2020, we’re seeking out fresh interiors trends to update our homes for the new decade.
Whether you want a full overhaul, or just to update your current look with a few fashionable flourishes, we’ve put together a round-up of the must-know interior trends of 2020, as we continue into the New Year.
1. Recycling and upcycling
If you want unique pieces of furniture in your home, or items with character and a story, then recycling and upcycling could be something that you should try.
Visit second-hand and charity shops and see if you can get a good deal on a sideboard or dining room table. Even if it’s not exactly want you want, snap it up and give it a lick of paint to create something unique. It’s easier than you think, and it means no one else will have the same furniture as you!
2. Abstract patterns
A great way to express personality or to create a mood in your home, abstract patterns work wonders on wallpaper and soft furnishings, and this year geometric patterns are taking centre stage.
Using bold patterns inspires a bit of fun, and the best thing is you can use as many patterns and colours as you want, because clashing is back in for 2020!
Throughout 2019, velvet became an integral part of an interior designer’s toolkit, and it’s looking like it’s going to continue to thrive this year as well.
It’s trans-seasonal, versatile and adds a glimmer of elegance wherever it’s used. What’s more, bigger pieces like an armchair or a headboard are an investment that will stand the test of time.
We all have our favourite colours that we like to use in our home, but we also like to know what shades are on trend just in case we ever want a little refresh. This year neutrals are looking strong, great for if you’re wanting more of a subtle look in your home, and there’s also a focus on black and white contrast.
If you’re into your decorating, you might be aware that Pantone has announced its colour of the year as Classic Blue. It’s just like the blue in our logo, and is said to instil calm and confidence as a universal favourite that brings a sense of peace and tranquillity. Consider it next time you fancy a change!
5. Mixed metals
We saw the rise of copper and steel furnishings in 2019 with the highly popular industrial interiors theme, and it seems like this trend is here to stay and flourish. Tones of brass and the more industrial-feeling gunmetal or black will be the go-to for furnishings such as lighting, door handles, and detailing.
