Looking to update your home but not sure what the latest trends are? Here are a just some of this year’s trends to help get you started.
Rattan, Wicker & Cane
No longer just for the garden, rattan, wicker and cane furniture is making a comeback in interior design, too. Perfect for balancing modern and traditional styles, wicker furniture adds a warm, rustic look to any home. From chairs, tables and even lighting, this look is both versatile and stylish.
Replacing the grey tones of 2019, one of the main colour trends of this year is navy blue. This classic, timeless colour adds elegance to any room and are perfect for use in spaces used for sleeping and relaxing. Blues work especially well when paired with natural woods to create a dynamic contrast. This colour doesn’t have to just be used on the walls. It can also be used as an accent colour to create an eye-catching and chic statement. Sofas and soft furnishings, such as cushions and rugs, look fantastic in this colour.
Bringing the outdoors indoors is one of this year’s trends that adds a natural look to any room. Real plants bring character and life to an interior space as well as creating a general sense of well-being.
Black and White Designs
This dynamic duo adds style and sophistication with bold contrast and a timeless simplicity. If you want to take a more subtle approach to this classic trend, try including pieces of furniture in either black or white, or adding soft furnishings, such as rugs or cushions.
If you believe that less is more, then the Scandinavian style may be for you. This aesthetic embodies a sense of minimalism and functionality. Bring this look into your home by adding pieces of furniture with simple, clean lines in natural hues. Warm and cosy textiles can be added to bring a texture accent to any room, whilst still abiding to the Scandinavian aesthetic. Shades of blue, grey or pale purple with grey undertones are the perfect colour pallet for soft furnishings and accents in this style.
Burnt reds are another colour trend of this year. Terracotta, rust orange, primary red, sienna and brown are all included in this colour trend. This rich palette adds warmth and vibrancy to any space. The earthy tones add a bold, eye-catching accent to a room as well as style and sophistication.
Layered Soft Furnishings
Layering up soft furnishings, such as cushions, throws, knits and faux furs, creates a warm and inviting space. This trend sees a mixture of cool grey tones mixed with warmer pink accents. Create a comfortable homely, haven by layering scatter cushions in different fabrics on a sofa. Blankets placed on a sofa or armchair create a casual, more relaxed look as well as a warm and inviting atmosphere.
The velvet trend has carried over into 2020, giving interiors elegance, sophistication and style. Bright interiors should incorporate a sofa with soft, pastel tones in shades of pink, beige or grey. Lighter interiors can add a pop-of-colour with bold sofas in blue, green, red or, the main colour trend of the year, mustard. Alternatively, small accents in bright colours can be added using scatter cushions, placed on sofas and armchairs, for a more subtle look.
Art Deco originally began in the ‘Roaring Twenties’, when Europe and America were embracing geometric styles and moving away from Art Nuevo designs. It was all about luxury interiors designed with silver, gilt, jade and moulded glass, all finished in a shiny lacquer. Continuing from 2019, the Art Deco style can now be achieved for a lower budget whilst still adding a luxurious look to any interior space. This year expect to see shell shapes, palms, fans and stepped motifs.
