A new year means it’s time to reset and recharge. 2020 is the year to bring tranquility, wellness, and fun accents into your home. It’s the perfect time to revamp your home and tackle that to-do list you’ve been putting off for a while. If you’re looking for new ideas or a place to start, we’ve gathered the top four trends of 2020.
Colors of 2020
Say bye to grey, hello BLUE. Something that will be a huge part of interior design this year is the color blue, and frankly we couldn’t be more excited about it! With this color incorporated in so much already and in many shades, it’ll be easy to update and continually refresh your space. Adding light blue to your space can help create a relaxing environment.
If you’re looking to include blue in your home for 2020, we’re big fans (no pun intended) of Pantone’s color of the year 2020, Classic Blue. It’s a timeless color that can also act as a neutral, making it easy to incorporate with other shades of blue as well as colors like blush pinks and greens. Add a blue light fixture to your space like our Hartland ceiling fan or Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fan.
Patterns and Accents
Patterns with a formal and decorative look – like intricate floral designs and art deco scallops – are coming back in a new way in 2020. The feminine patterns are being revived with a fresh take, incorporating gold and brass finishes paired with textured or colored glass.
White subway tile is making way for bold, patterned tile on backsplashes and floors. A floral-patterned tile or geometric-patterned one in black and white is eye-catching and easy to coordinate with other colors and metal finishes. Black and white tile is a beautiful base to let brass finishes and hardware pop! Patterned tile is another stunning place to add the Pantone color of the year 2020.
Metals and Woods
Get outside your comfort zone and try mixing metals in your home design. To make it harmonious and purposeful, determine what your room’s base colors will be. Warm metals like copper and brass pop in a room with a neutral color palette. Cool-toned metallics like silver and chrome add contrast in rooms with bold colors but blend in rooms with a neutral color scheme. Stick with two to three metal finishes so your home decor doesn’t get too busy.
Wood tones are shifting from grey washes to warmer wood finishes, as seen in coastal California spaces. Furniture in a light blonde wood and floors in mid-toned browns will flow throughout homes. These lighter woods are be great to incorporate with ceiling beams, trim, and wall shelves. Pair wood finishes with accents of woven materials, brass finishes, navy or floral textiles, and terracotta accents.
Wellness in Your Home
Wellness throughout your home is making a big impact in 2020. Unused nooks or home offices can become a space of rest and meditation by adding cozy furniture and scented candles or essential oils. The bathroom is becoming a place to unwind, reduce stress, and enjoy “me-time.” Stools and small chairs in bathroom designs create a spa-like space, as well as plants.
Speaking of plants, go ahead and get rid of your faux plants that were trendy last year and replace them with real plants for the new year. Reports show real plants can help with concentration and productivity as well as reducing stress levels.
Linens and mattresses will also be a new item to invest in when adding wellness elements to your home. Choosing the right bedding, mattress, and ceiling fan can help with better sleep. Check out some mattresses with microclimate and bamboo linens for a softer and more comfortable night’s rest. You can also explore pajamas made out of bamboo.
Create a fresh start for your home in 2020 by incorporating some of these trends. Let us know which ones you plan on adding to your list and when you’re done, give us a tag on social with #itsahunter!
