Home Design trends 2020
Along these lines, sustainability has become increasingly more important. As society gravitates towards more eco-friendly lifestyles, people are more ecologically conscious and knowledgeable than ever before. “There’s an ethical component to their purchasing decisions,” says Ben Marshall who is the creative director of Hudson Valley Lighting Group.
This is being reflected in an overall design sensibility as well as a desire to bring warm, earthy elements to a space. “We’ve answered this demand at HVLG by featuring sustainably harvested materials like acacia and rattan in many of our fixtures,” he explains.
Neutral colors will be in once again this upcoming year. What can we say? Neutrals come in pretty classic and serene shades, and most importantly, they’re not super busy. If you’re thinking, “Big whoop! Neutrals are so plain,” then you’re wrong for several reasons. Neutral colors are whites with cool or warm undertones. We’re primarily looking at shades of gray and beige. Our prediction for 2020 sees warm neutrals making their way in, while cool neutrals fade into the background. Don’t underestimate the power of neutral decor either. It’ll make an excellent choice for your walls, but they’re also great options for furniture including sofas and bedding.
Black and white are the beginning and end of the color spectrum. They literally couldn’t be a starker contrast between colors., but the clash between light and dark is a gift from the interior design gods. There are millions of ways to incorporate this yin and yang trend into your home decor. Black chairs and sofas, white throw pillows, chevron print, black and white marble–there are so many textiles and pattern variations that marry these two colors. In 2020, interior designers can look forward to the endless possibilities for home decor that this black and white trend has to offer.
Metals are going to be all over the place in 2020. We’re talking silver, gold, tin, and copper. Tin panels are predicted to be a popular backsplash option for kitchens. The mixed metal decor trend will also be pretty popular. Silver and brown metals will work well together, like iron and gold or bronze. Be careful not to mix more than three metals in one space, or your decor could become way too busy and overwhelming for one room. The right interior design firm can help you find balance.
