Each season and year, the trends that transform our clients’ interior spaces change. The common goal for trends in 2020 is to give homes a comfortable look that is inspired by nature. Here are some of the trends that all design professionals should take note of:
Dividing spaces with natural materials
This year, the trend of having open spaces with communicated environments will be flipped on its head. Divisions made from natural materials are increasingly sought to grant greater privacy and intimacy to each environment, making them more welcoming.
Not only does this give occupants more space and peace away from noise, but it also solves the problem of, for example, smells from the kitchen wafting through to the living area and diminishing comfort levels.
Colour trends by furniture, textiles and walls for interiors
Grey: The colour for decoration in 2020
Grey was popular in 2019 and it continues to be a firm favourite this year. Being a neutral colour, grey covers a wide range of combinations and styles that will become increasingly bolder when paired with vibrant colours.
According to Sherin Williams, the colour of the year is a rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence.
For several seasons, pink has been present in interior décor. Whether in walls, textiles, furniture or accessories, everything from pastel pink and old rose to peach pink can add a serene, delicate and elegant touch to home décor.
Lilac, violet and purple in all its shades and combinations will come strongly to the avant-garde interiors this year. Whether you are looking for tenuous or intense purple, you will be able to find a shade that matches your client’s aesthetic goals.
Dark and deep ranges of green will increasingly be seen in upholstery and furniture within interior spaces, creating an accent in the décor.
While green, grey and pink are some of the dominant colours in 2020, there will be an upsurge in the application of black. People know they can never go wrong with black and we will see an increased use of black in walls, furniture, finishes and fixtures. While a common misconception of black making a room smaller exists, the truth is that when paired with other colours, an enchanted atmosphere can be achieved.
While the use of decorative paintings with floral or 3D motifs have increased at a minimal pace, 2020 will see an upsurge in patterned acrylic glass paintings. The perfect vintage and modern touch can be added to a room with walls filled with images that mimic nature.
For accent walls, designers have the possibility to add a strong painting without overloading the whole room. Popular choices include scenes in the forest, mural paintings on the beach or beautiful acrylic glass paintings showing urban illustrations.
Trends in materials
According to new décor trends, marble has perhaps become one of the most important materials. This has more to do with the texture of the stone than creating plates that look like Greek stylistics. Thanks to imitation products, designers can create “marble rooms” at affordable prices.
Another trend material is non-ferrous metal, which offers limitless creativity and imagination, followed by tile.
