The Biggest Interior Design Trends You Should Know About

There are several interior design trends that you should know about for 2020, here's a run down.

With the holidays fast approaching and the year wrapping up, many of us may be looking around our homes and thinking about how to refresh things. We want to make sure we stay on top of the latest trends and have a beautiful house to welcome our family and guests.

This year’s interior design trends are a fun mix of retro and futuristic. We’re bringing the Roaring Twenties back, but this time with an environmentally friendly bent. Read on to discover the best interior design trends for this year and how to bring them into your home.

Art Deco

The twenties are coming back around, and we’re all reliving the aesthetic of the flapper era. Art deco is a style all about big geometric patterns, bold colors, and metallic finishes. It’s glamour and luxury in interior design, and it is coming roaring back as we head into the 2020s.

Look for geometric accessories with metallic finishes to place around your home. Try pairing a coffee table with a gold geometric base with rich, jewel-tone pillows to add some drama and pop to your space. You can also look for wall pieces to hang as headboards or focal pieces on accent walls.

Wood

On the other end from the gilded opulence of the art deco style is the natural look. More frequent discussion of climate change has made most of us appreciate the beauty of the natural world around us all the more. So this year, we’re bringing the beauty of nature indoors with lots of wood accents.

Natural finish wood is going to be more popular than ever for furniture and cabinetry. These neutral tones go well with any paint color, but the yellow of the wood will contrast especially well against the cooler colors. You can also add a touch of elegance and timelessness to your home with wood flooring.

Navy

One of the colors that pairs beautifully with wood, especially the lighter woods, is navy. And, in fact, this color is making its way all over the house, and we’re in love with it. Navy offers a sophisticated touch of color without being either overwhelming or dour.

If navy sounds a little too old for your taste, don’t worry – one of the beauties of the color is how well it pairs with other, brighter shades. Put hot pink throw pillows on a navy couch or chair, or drape a mint green cloth over a navy sideboard. You could even paint an accent wall navy and put brightly colored furniture there to balance it out, or vice versa.

Black Kitchens

While navy is overtaking black in the rest of the house, the classic color still reigns over the kitchen. There’s something sleek and beautiful about black kitchen accents, and this year we are looking for sleek. But you don’t have to stick to black appliances to be on trend this year.

Black cabinets provide a fantastic sense of visual stability, especially when paired against a white backsplash or countertops. If you have an especially bright kitchen, you could even put in black floors to provide some visual weight and a lovely balance. Your space will feel modern and still surprisingly airy.

Backsplashes

Black is a heavy color, so if you’re looking for a way to lighten it up, consider adding some bold backsplashes. The walls of our kitchens have been neglected and drab for too long, and this year, we’re changing it up. Something as simple as putting a patterned tile up on your backsplash can change the whole feel of your kitchen.

Look for a patterned tile you like that will match with the rest of your kitchen. Don’t be afraid to get bold; the beauty of a backsplash is that it’s small enough to serve as an accent without overwhelming the rest of the kitchen. You can even look for a pattern that includes bright colors as a way to bring a pop of fun to the space.

Curves

When you’re shopping for your backsplash tile, remember to keep an eye out for the curves. And the same goes for the rest of the furnishings in your house; this year, we’re all about that bass. The last few years have been focused on minimalism and straight lines, but we’re bringing more softness to our spaces this year.

Look for furniture with some curves in the backs and legs when you’re shopping this year. Wallpaper with gentle curved patterns can also help open up a space. Adding curves to straight-line rooms will make it appear that there’s more space than there actually is.

Sustainability

When you’re shopping for that furniture, be sure to check if it’s sustainably sourced. It’s 2019, and this year, we’re all about saving the planet. So the more sustainable touches as you can bring to your home, the better.

Succulents are all the rage in green decorating, and if you want to go bold with it, you can create a whole succulent wall hanging. Take some old pieces and re-imagine how you can use them in different ways, such as using a rug or tapestry as a headboard. Reduce, reuse, recycle is the mantra of the year, so think outside the box and come up with some beautiful new décor ideas.
