Design trends for 2020
As we near the end of 2019 we look ahead to the New Year and consider what our interior design choices might be once January starts afresh.
There are lots of trend ideas floating around the key influencers in industry at the moment so we’ve chosen our top ideas to easily transform and update your existing space, without too much hassle.
- Keep natural light in mind whilst creating a relaxed, comfy and calm chilled out space to relax in. Lots of us have spent 2019 staying at home and informally dining rather than heading out to events and we predict that 2020 will follow a similar path. Minimise the clutter and choose your furnishings to enhance this.
- However, with a trend for flexible working, keep in mind an area you could use as a working space if the need arises.
- If you’d like to take on the walls, this is the time of year that paint companies release their new shade charts. Consider some warming colours such as reds and terracotta, mauve, mustard and burnt orange. The idea is to have a main colour hue with a contrast and a highlight.
- Texture is set to be all around us in 2020, from cushions, throws and boucle fabrics transferring art into textiles. Even consider mixing and matching textures in your kitchen – a few hand thrown mugs will add texture and interest to your evenings at home.
- Due a new sofa or armchair? You’ll find a lot of curved edges and more design led styles, stepping away from the traditionally shaped furniture.
Remember, choose whatever will suit you, your home and lifestyle. Trends are there as a guide but ultimately you have to live with it. If you’re thinking of investing in some art to add to the mix then read our top tips and once you’ve made your purchase remember to how to hang it!
