7 Interior Design Trends We’ll See in 2020
As an artist, I love to look ahead at the design trends we might see in 2020. 2020 is looking to be a year of bold, ambitious choices when it comes to Interior design. Here are my 7 favorites!
What it is: This design trend is a reflection of the realities our society is facing today as we battle climate change and rapid consumerism. Biophilic designs incorporate human design with sustainable materials, a focus on natural wood, recycled textiles, undyed yarns and warm, earthy materials.
Why I love it: This return to nature brings in soft, rich texture and warm earthy elements to create a safe haven in your home.
What it is: Art Deco with a new twist. Think of it as a revitalized and modernized Art Deco aesthetic, with a focus on geometric shapes and luxe materials like velvet, but in more modern color palettes
Why I love it: Neo-deco combines bold, rich textures and patterns that I love with a more modern and minimal approach than the original art-deco style. It says cool and timeless at the same time!
Grand Millennial Style
What it is: Traditional lines and Neutrals mixed up in a modern luxe way. Think modern art with clean lined furniture, but furniture that you want to sit in.
Why I love it: Grand Millennial styles are harkening back to traditional lines, but mixing it with Scandinavian cool.
What it is: Vibrant, rich tone-on-tone room designs.
Why I love it: Talk about bold- this trend lets you explore color in your home. While monochrome used to be for neutrals, this trend holds nothing back but still provides a very cohesive room.
Old and New
What it is: A curated collection of new design trends with old antiques, either passed down by family or hand picked to fit the aesthetic of the room.
Why I love it: More proof that the home is truly a sanctuary and form of personal expression. This trend lets you curate your home, displaying things you love that are both old and new. It allows for rooms to be truly personalized and feel like the reflect the soul of the home owner.
What it is: A combination of Japanese Wabi-Sabi design and Scandinavian design. Both aesthetics have clean lines with a minimal and harmonious look
Why I love it: This is minimalism at its finest. The combination brings a more natural element to traditional Scandi decor, but keeps the clean minimal look that I adore.
What it is: As homes downsize and people move from one life-stage to another, there is an expansion of using rooms for more than one purpose. That master bedroom closet makes for a great temporary nursery. And the extra nook in a living room is now a perfect home office. Furniture makers are creating multi-functional products to be used throughout the home
Why I love it: As a new mom, I had to give up my home office to have a guest bedroom/playroom in our 3 bedroom home. So, the multi-purpose room is near and dear to my heart. I also love that people are staying in their homes and apartments longer and making them work for the stage of life they are in.
What are your favorite 2020 design trends? I cannot wait to see how these trends play out in real homes in the months to come!
