Oh, the joys of the new year.
A new year means a fresh start not just in your personal lives, but it’s also the perfect time to revamp your home. If you’re trying to figure out what to do with your home next year, here are a few trends that we collected. We have got together some of the world’s great designers, decorators, and architects’ predictions about the home trends that will be in for 2020.
It is refreshing to see the return of something that resonates with everyone. Is not it? People are already tired of the use of square and rectangular furniture with straight lines and are now moving towards round shaped furniture and smooth materials. So one of the biggest changes taking place in interior treatment is the use of curves and smooth edges instead of the typical boxy frames and clean lines.
It’s so interesting, that a curved interior resonates with the feminine psyche but men also seem to like it. That because curves deliver a calm and soothing environment, which is something we all need regardless of our gender.
What about colors? In 2020 cold neutrals like gray fade into the background, while black and white making their way. Those tones are the beginning and end of the color prism. “High contrast black and white is such a dynamic duo. While versatile, I prefer a bold pattern for a little drama. The emotional response is immediate and the look remains timeless.” — says interior designer Laura Umansky.
You know that 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 are those textiles and patterns that marry these two colors.
Another mainstream is this year. It definitely becomes a fashion element of decoration. William Cullum a senior designer at Thomas Jayne, is talking about it: “I think that after touching a slick iPhone, people are craving the texture, patina and age of something that feels firm and permanent,” he explains. “Mosaics are that: you see them through almost every period of decorative arts, and to me, they connote luxury and whimsy.”
Our final trend takes a look at earth tones. The colors and textures simulate nature’s most basic elements, like wood, metals, and foliage. They are regularly used in the making of furniture and home accessories.
“Say goodbye to the cool tones that have ruled for so many years. Shades of chocolate brown, wine, olive green, and yellow ochre are all taking over in homes. We love substituting these warm, natural colors for a neutral on the sofa or walls.” – says Marika Meyer.
And are you interested in what I am saying? – The interior can change the way you live and the new year is the best period for changes, remember that.
