Design trends for your home in 2020

1. Navy Blue

The 2020 Pantone Colour of the Year is Classic Blue which is a shade of navy blue. Shortly you will see all the décor shops stocking up on beautiful décor to introduce this sophisticated colour into your home. This colour can work perfectly in any room in your house whether it’s painted cabinets in your kitchen or splashes or navy in your bedroom.


2. Floral wallpaper

Don’t worry we are not referring to your grandmother’s old floral wallpaper where it feels like you have stepped into a 1950’s movie. Beautifully fresh and modern floral prints will make a bold statement in your lounge, bedroom or baby’s room.

3. Vintage and Patina accents

We all know the saying “history tends to repeat itself” and we know this is true when it comes to design and fashion trends. Vintage and traditional detailing will make its appearance in the form of small details like spooled chair legs and spindles as seen in the 1800’s and early 1900’s.  In addition to these trendy design styles, colours like terracotta, clay and other earthenware will add a look of natural and earthy tones to your home.

4. Bold patterns backsplash designs

2020 is all about bold patterns and colours. Make your dining room or kitchen stand out with a stunning pattern behind a cupboard or the washing sink. Give a room character and personality with a unique pattern that suits your personality.

5. The subtle and sophisticated olive tree

2019 was the year of bright and bold greens with tropical feels. This year you can look forward to softer toned-down greens of the olive tree which will bring a natural look into your lounge or bedroom.

6. Maximalism designing

Minimalism is out and maximalism is in. While minimalism focuses on toning things down and making it simple and straightforward, maximalism is the complete opposite. Maximalism is about embracing the grandeur. Needless to say interior designers are going to have a field day with this trend. Big, bold, bright colors and patterns, gaudy decor and colorful abstract paintings. Of course, you’ll have to use some restraint. It’s easy to quickly leave bold and lively and tread into busy and cluttered. Regardless, we’ve gone from less is more to more is more.


7. Black is back!

Although many people believed in the past that black makes a room look smaller, you can still achieve a sophisticated design by using black in moderation. Design specialists predict that black will be one of the biggest trends in 2020 by painting one wall black, adding a splash of black with pillows or a black frame here and there. Make use of contrasting colours in order to limit a feeling overpowering black.
