The start of a new decade feels like the perfect time to update your home with a new trending kitchen design or to simply add a few new pieces of art to exhilarate the energy of your home sweet home. A shift in lifestyle has many of us opting towards staying in rather than going out and this has been reflected in our homes.
These are the 2020 home décor trends that experts can’t wait to see. These trends are not only about color. We are seeing texture increasingly being used to add personality to every room.
VINTAGE IS BACK
One thing is for sure; Vintage is making a comeback! Styles like spooled legs, spindles, lamps and textures from the 1800s and early 1900s are starting to be spotted everywhere. “One of the emerging design trends is an appreciation of patina and age,” says interior designer Breexe Giannasio. In addition to more vintage furniture expect to see color trends such as clay and terracotta as well as decorative items such as earthenware and ceramics. But don’t expect to see all vintage everywhere. This time around, designers are incorporating just one or two statement pieces.Make 2020 the year you start — or continue to grow — your art collection. “If any type of antique is making a comeback, it’s art,” says Hammel. “People love that it looks aged and that it has a story to it.”
We never thought it would happen but the love for grey tones has been pushed out by blue. The 2020 color is called Classic Blue, and it’s just that: a classic blue. It’s clean and elegant but it’s also really uplifting and a really easy color to incorporate into your home.You can expect to see a lot of the color in the new year. Fortunately, it is versatile and sophisticated providing the perfect amount of contrast for interiors and exteriors in both traditional and modern home styles,” says interior designer Kerrie Kelly, founder of Kerrie Kelly Design Lab. “Whether a kitchen island gets a quick upgrade or a room gets a dramatic new look with contrasting white trim and woodwork, the shade provides a stately look without going completely black,” she says.
Pink is also in and it is not just for teens in 2020. Just follow these rules for mastering how to incorporate it into your decor.
First, avoid anything that vaguely reminds you of a color Barbie would wear. Blush-toned and muted pinks are the way to go. Second, keep finishes matt – anything shiny and pink, should be reserved for a five-year-olds bedroom. Play around with pinks cooler side by mixing it with greys or soften it up with creams or blues.
“Floral wallpaper has been around for years and you will continue to see the pretty pattern but with a much more modern update,” says interior designer Abbe Fenimore, founder of Studio Ten 25. “Large scale, bold color, and even metallic versions are here to stay.”A traditional pattern on a light background will uplift any room especially if it’s matched with contemporary pieces.Fenimore says they’re a particularly good choice in powder bathrooms and foyers. Plus, there are tons of stick-on options if you’re not ready to fully commit.
HIGH CONTRAST DECORATIONS
High-contrast designs are currently having their moment therefore if you’ve dreamed of painting your home a wild unconventional color, now is the time to give it a go.”For a long time, it was white, white, white,” Hammel says. “But now, for example, maybe we’d see a chair with black fabric and a white frame. Or a console table in dark stained wood with light-colored hardware.”
All white kitchen trends are behind us in 2020 and instead, we are seeing a mix of colored cabinets. According to the experts at Modiani Kitchens, “the trend in 2020 is to choose one or several elements, like the kitchen island, kitchen wall cabinets, or base cabinets in daring colors, like dark red, bright yellow, green or navy blue.”And if a bold paint color isn’t quite your vibe you can also get those look using contrasting materials. What we love about this trend is you can make it work for pretty much any style kitchen, from super modern to a traditional Shaker.
Have you considered kitchen art? “There’s always a focus on making the kitchen a room in the house and not a machine for cooking,” says Giannasio. That can be accomplished by hanging art in the kitchen, or using open shelves to display items that show off your personality, she says.
With living spaces getting smaller and the storage spaces needing to be smarter and simpler, minimalist kitchens are growing in popularity. Items like kettles, plug sockets, knife blocks, even taps, and sinks – can now disappear into flush cabinets and uninterrupted surfaces to make the most of all space available. These designs are perfect for open plan kitchens and tiny spaces and the streamlined look in contemporary kitchens.
Have you always wanted to sleep like the royals? Now is the time to make all of your regal canopy bed dreams come true. “Canopy beds no longer need to be draped in heavy fabrics and chunky headboards,” says Fenimore. “Modern versions made with acrylic, metal, and sleek upholstered frames are making a comeback.”
“One of the emerging design trends is an appreciation of patina and age,” says interior designer Breeze Giannasio. In addition to more vintage furniture, expect to see this played out in color trends such as clay and terracotta, as well as decorative items such as earthenware and ceramics.
COZY FABRICS AND TEXTURES
Fortunately for everyone who loves to cozy up with a good book, Giannasio says comfy fabrics will be everywhere in the New Year. “Instead of luxe grand velvet, we’ll see shearling, imperfect leathers, and soft textured mohairs.”2020 trends aren’t all about color either, we are seeing texture increasingly being used to add interest to rooms too. A look that we are loving is layering up different textures in the same, or very similar colors. It’s perfect if you are big on neutrals so need to find different ways to decorate your rooms without using too many colors. In a living room, cushions and blankets are an obvious way of doing this but in other rooms, try bringing in textures with plants (dried flowers are everywhere going into 2020) prints and well-curated knick-knacks.
