5 Interior Trends We'll See in 2020
From sustainability to geometry, there are interior design trends that will satisfy everyone in 2020. Here are some trends to look out for and ideas on how to incorporate them into your home.
In 2020 it’s all about sustainable materials. Less people will be opting to purchase cheap single-use items and instead will be investing in decor and homeware that will be around for years to come. We’ll see more sustainable materials being used, such as natural wood, recycled textiles, yarns, wool, seagrass, and cane. This trend will even lend itself to incorporating vintage and second hand pieces into the home, like antique Turkish rugs and wall hangings.
This year we are returning to nature with subtle nature-inspired interior design. Make your home an indoor-outdoor sanctuary with wood and stone patterns, plant motifs and prints, and indoor plants and gardens. Organic, free-flowing shapes will be everywhere when it comes to light fixtures and furniture. The trend will also spill into 2020’s colour palette, so say goodbye to millennial pink and hello to a range of greens, warm neutrals, and natural tones.
We are seeing a departure from the simple Scandinavian design trend and a movement towards homes becoming a unique reflection of the people who live in them. This year we will see unique and bold interiors that incorporate eclectic statement pieces. This can be achieved by bringing in elements that tell stories, such as cultural designs, unique artwork, oddities, quirky furniture, or colourful patterns. A quick way to achieve the look is with bold patterned tiles and wallpaper. There are few rules when the main goal is to create a space as unique as you.
Modernism won’t leave us completely in 2020, but instead will be back by meshing vintage and contemporary vibes together. Think geometric shapes fused with bold colours, pairing industrial looks with vintage dressings, or mixing texture with clean lines. A new take on Art Deco will make a comeback and we will see circles, rectangles, and stripes adorn furniture, decor, and walls.
As a result of people spending more social time inside the home, people are finding it increasingly important to create a space where friends and family can comfortably gather. As a result, filled bar carts, cocktail seating, and restaurant and hotel-inspired interior are making their way into homes. Think about your favourite aspects of trendy hotels and implement them at home to make a going-out-but-staying-in vibe.
There you have it, the top interior trends you’ll be falling in love with in 2020. I hope they gave you some inspiration for any redecorating you plan to do this year. Tag us (@toat.co) in any pictures that show how you’ve incorporated these trends into your home!
