Trends in interior design and decoration change every year, but with slight improvements and a few changes, we can always get a fresh modern look. Home décor trends in 2020 suggest open and spacious interiors, with a sense of harmony and a strong bond with Nature. Colors will be bright and fresh, and furniture and decoration items will be less in numbers, to ensure freedom of movement and visual spaciousness. Different interior styles interpret new trends in different original ways, depending on their characteristic features and accents. We offer you a few tips on what the latest home décor trends are, and on how you can introduce these in your home.
1. Everything Living Coral
The Pantone Institute, the ultimate authority on colors, has chosen living coral to be the ‘color of the year 2020’. With its natural warm and comforting tones, this lively color may well be considered as a long-due reaction to the neutral and monochrome color trends that have been ruling over the interiors for the past few years.
Due to the natural environment the color comes from, there are different color palettes that it can be successfully incorporated in, creating cheerful accents and various in spirit ambiance effects.
How you can introduce this trendy color in the interior of your home depends entirely on your personal taste. From accent walls painted in uniform living coral hues to lively pops of color introduced through small furniture items, home décor accessories, textiles, and even kitchen utensils and appliances, the color of the year 2020 will add fresh and bright ambiance in your home.
2. Closer to Nature
2020 will put a strong emphasis on interiors where ‘less is more’, with a reasonable sense of purposefulness of space and closer relationship with Nature. Home décor will tend to feature all things natural and organic in the attempt to bring in the beauty and fresh vibe of Nature.
This year’s interior will feature furniture items crafted of wood, stone and various natural materials, while decorations will celebrate creativity in using sustainable materials such as jute, rice paper, and clay. This trend will also show in a smart and unobtrusive mix of modern with vintage, as well as in featuring earthy and natural color tones.
3. Light wood floors and countertops
The 2020 ‘bring Nature in’-the trend will however also show off the achievements of modern technologies in our pursuit to preserve the natural environment. Large interior surfaces, like floors and countertops, will feature the beauty and feel of natural timber through the use of the modern man-made materials with equivalent effect. To achieve a visually larger space effect and open look, as well as cozy and fresh ambiance, 2020 interior trends suggest lighter tones of natural timber colors, such as shades of birch, beachy white, and light oak.
4. Floral patterns
Featured on textiles, wallpapers, backsplashes, or the surface of smaller furniture items, and mostly in light, pastel color hues, floral patterns will make beautiful accents in 2020 interiors. Floral motifs provide classic elegance and chic, which is highly admired in contemporary homes. 2020 will also introduce some modern interpretations of the traditional beauty of floral patterns, suggesting abstracted floral designs which will perfectly fit more modern interior design lines.
5. Colorful kitchen
2020 interior trends pay special attention to kitchens, suggesting more color and stronger aesthetic looks in one of the most functional areas at home. Two main methods are recommended here. One is to have the kitchen walls painted in uniform light to pure white color, and then make kitchen cabinets pop up in vibrant colors, complemented by boldly patterned backsplashes and statement countertops. The other method suggests keeping the white kitchen but introducing pops of color through openly displayed kitchen accessories, utensils, and appliances in flamboyant contrasting colors.
