Taking down the Christmas decorations always leaves the house feeling a bit empty, doesn’t it?
If you’ve got the itch to fill that space with brand new interior decor, there’s no time like the new year for creating a new home. We’ve put together the top interior design trends of 2020 to inspire you and help you choose your new look.
This year, interior design is taking a literal leaf out of the health and wellbeing playbook and going back to nature.
The idea is to make your home feel like a natural haven but how you do this is entirely up to you. You can opt to use earthy, neutral tones in the bedroom or brighten up your space with colourful floral print bedding. You can choose living room pieces made from raw wood and natural fabrics like jute or hemp, or inject a little personality with floral patterned furniture.
However you let nature inspire you, don’t forget the crucial accessory; houseplants. 2020 interior design trends show houseplants everywhere and anywhere you can fit them. Not only do they look great but they give your mental and physical health a boost, too.
If there’s one colour that’s here to stay for 2020, it’s trusty millennial pink. This year, however, the famous shade is looking a little more grown-up in richer, duskier pinks and softer roses than last year’s more saccharine look.
We’re especially loving pink when paired with Pantone’s colour of the year: Classic Blue. Think cosy pink sofas paired with comfy blue armchairs and you’ve got the right vibe.
Whether we’re on a post-Christmas budget or we just crave the comforts of home on cold winter days, staying in is the new going out. Which is why there’s been a turn towards creating more social spaces in our homes over heading out to a pub or bar.
If you have room, a pair of sofas creates the perfect backdrop for a social gathering. If you’re working with a smaller space, some comfy armchairs or even large floor cushions can help to create a cosy, convivial atmosphere.
If you prefer your social gatherings to revolve around food, invest in a large Scandi-style dining table that’s big enough for all your loved ones to gather around.
It’ll come as no surprise to anyone that Scandi interior design is very much still ‘in’. In 2020, though, the trend is heading more towards dark sophistication than the bright and breezy scandi spaces of 2019.
This year’s trend still embraces raw, natural materials and Scandi minimalism, but is backed by much more moody tones. Think slate greys and stone colours paired with navy blues and earthy browns. This Ancona round extending table pairs the shades perfectly.
As 2020 interior design trends swing towards sophistication, black, white, and all shades (of grey) between are making a comeback. Monochrome works perfectly with the ongoing trend for minimalism and clean lines, like in this Alassio sliding wardrobe.
Even better, a black and white backdrop can be accessorised with any colour that takes your fancy. You can use rugs, cushions, and artworks to add a pop of colour to a monochrome room then simply change the accessories when you fancy a change of colour or style – no big redecoration necessary.
In keeping with the 2020 taste for both nature and luxe interiors, texture is all over the new year’s interior design trends.
Again, this one is pretty customisable. If you want to create a luxurious room, opt for sumptuous textures like velvet, marble, and slate. If you’re creating a nature-inspired living space, opt for natural textures like faux sheepskin rugs or raw wool throws instead. Texture can be added to any room in the house, and is a great way to create interest and variety with neutral tones.
