With the new decade starting this year, interior style is at an exciting turning point. While there are many styles from the past ten years that will remain timeless classics, 2020 is ushering in a variety of bold and exciting new trends in the home, and we’ve got all the details for you here!
If you love including a bit of bright colour in your home, 2020 is the year to do it! Modern Mediterranean is an aesthetic that allows you to keep your underlying style neutral and consistent throughout the home, but encourages the addition of vibrant bursts of colour. Think neutral walls and floors, with armchairs and couches in primary colours, statement artwork that’s made up of kaleidoscope hues, and decorative elements like sculptures and floor lamps with a distinctly modern European feel.
If you want to include a focal point in a particular space in your home, but don’t want to use a bright paint colour or busy wallpaper, wall panelling is the perfect solution. It’s an affordable design option and can be almost any colour you like. Our favourite ways to include it in the home are along the entry way passage, behind the bedhead in the master suite, or around the fireplace in the lounge room. You’ll love the subdued elegance wall panelling will add to your home, and your guests will be sure to notice this stylish feature.
Including elements in your home that echo the feel of nature continues to be a huge trend in 2020. The use of floorboards, stonework inside and outside the home, and cabinetry that has an organic timber look and warm feel will help blend your indoor spaces with the outdoors seamlessly. This trend is easy to carry through your whole home, with consistent kitchen, bathroom and ensuite cabinetry, Scandi style barstools with a rustic emphasis, and large furniture items such as buffets, dressers and TV units that have a raw, wooden look and feel to them.
While we’ve had an ongoing love affair with clean, crisp white subway tiles over the past few years, 2020’s trend is moving towards tiles with a pastel hue. Creating an area in your home where there’s a small, subtle injection of colour will add warmth and personality to spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms, and allows you to keep the rest of the space neutral and understated for a perfect tonal balance. Pastel blue, pale pink, and a light sage green are colours that are increasing in popularity as people move away from all white spaces.
Hamptons style has dominated in homes over the last couple of years, but this year industry experts are predicting a move towards a more eclectic interior style for homes. Perhaps one of the most personal styles, creating an eclectic look in your home means you’ll be able to include as much or as little of your personality as you want. Bright colours, lush textures, and bold furniture choices will give your home a truly unique look and feel, and will be a place you relish coming home to each day. Think brightly patterned rugs and cushions, velvet dining chairs and couches, an upholstered bedhead in a bright colour – the possibilities are endless!
Whether your style preference leans towards earthy colours and textures, or you opt for a bright, colourful feel, choosing an interior style that suits your home and works for you and your family on a day to day basis will create spaces that truly reflect your personal style and make for a warm and inviting home.
