Out with the festive decor, in with the new interior trends for 2020 to inject some new life into your home, whether you love simple, sustainable or maximalist chic, there’s something for every taste this year.
There is an annual phase most us go through as the New Year begins – the tree and all of the festive trimmings are removed to reveal a less lack lustre room.
Without the sparkle and soft lights emanating from your Christmas tree your home can feel bare and boring, so why not jazz up your home for the new year with the latest home decor trends for 2020?
This can be in the form of a few simple touches, a new piece of furniture or a complete room revamp, read on for new trend inspiration…
Pantone 2020 Colour of the year: Classic Blue
Every year Pantone releases it’s colour of the year and it’s a beautiful blue, chosen to evoke the sky at dusk.
For us it brings to mind classic denim jeans, the deep ocean and sapphire gemstones and is easy to incorporate into your home through furniture, stylish accents such as chairs, wall art and accessories.
The fact that it teams well with our much loved grey is a huge bonus!
In a world full of technology we’re increasing realising the need to escape our digital environment and get back to the basics of the wild and pure outdoors.
We’re now bringing this natural inspiration into our homes with vintage botanical drawings, pressed flowers and insects.
Natural materials and textures can also help to bridge the gap between our outdoor and indoor surroundings.
Farrow and Ball have recognised this trend and have teamed up with the Natural History Museum to create a Colour by Nature
collection of 16 eco friendly paints drawn directly from the natural world.
You can easily add touches of this trend into your home with accessories and wall decor.
Scandi Chic has been a long term trend which sees no sign of disappearing, but there are new variations of this theme emerging.
Nordic interior influences introduce bold earthy colours such as peachy pinks, pale mochas and soft greens like Dulux’s Colour of the Year – Tranquil Dawn.
Adding tactile textures using wool, tweed and rattan will help to soften the clean lines to create a cosy and inviting scheme.
Art Deco style has been gaining popularity over the last 12 months, combined with other retro classics from other eras, it’s now taken on 21st century twists along the way so that anything goes.
Whether you choose reclaimed originals that ooze character or select modern reproductions, you can create a unique look that makes a real statement.
Bold, graphical patterns are an easy way to update your look and the stand out trend from Retro Chic this year is curved edges and patterns, so choose soft curved upholstery and carved wooden furniture.
Eco friendly and sustainable
Thankfully we’re all becoming more environmentally conscious and one way we can contribute to lessening our impact on climate change is to consider where the materials for the furniture we invest in is sourced from.
Many furniture collections are now being made from reclaimed and recycled materials.
Not only will you get a truly unique piece of furniture full of character and charm, but you’ll also get a nice warm glow knowing that you’re helping the planet. Happy days!
We’ve all fallen in love with luxury materials and textures because your home has to feel good as well as look good.
If you love the feel of marble and the softness of velvet, you’ll be glad to know that the Luxe trend is still highly fashionable and ever evolving.
This year we’re seeing pewter and smoked glass join the trend, fringing is still hanging on and indulgent pinks are still the colour of choice.
Staying in is the new going out, so if you’re inviting friends over on a regular basis you need the facilities to back up your host/hostess with the most/mostest claim.
A bar cart is a must to show off your array of beverages, especially when so many have such beautifully designed bottles and packaging, it would be crime to hide them away. Mix in pretty or retro glassware and it’s party time!
If laid back dining in rustic surroundings is more your thing then add a high bar table and bar chairs to your kitchen diner and you’ll be feeling those bistro vibes all night.
