Decor Trends to Look Out for in 2020
Whether you’re just curious or you’re trying to get a head start on designing your home in accordance with the latest trends, this article is the one for you. Since Pantone announced their color of the year, Living Coral, we’ve been a part of many conversations that mainly revolved around words like trends, predictions and such.
Because predictions may change based on external factors, opinions, and other unknown factors, at this point we can talk about only a few trends with some certainty. Combining data from industries like fashion, real-estate, and technology with trends in the economy has allowed us to dig deeper and back these predictions.
Without further ado, let’s look at the trends we’re predicting for the year 2020 and our reasons behind the predictions.
If we look at the numbers, now is a tough period for first-time homebuyers. If this situation persists, we may see smaller homes that will have less space for your furniture. Thus, you will need pieces that are multi-functional like beds with drawer storage or desks with shelves up top.
The rise of multifunctional furniture is a trend that may involuntarily contribute towards sustainable living and will certainly be a popular one among people who believe in practices like minimalism and mindfulness.
However, designers working with multifunctional furniture will face a big challenge – ensuring the pieces are not just functionally fitting but visually interesting as well.
PPG paints announced Nightwatch as their color of the year around the same time as Pantone announced Living Coral as theirs. We love both these colors equally but like every other year, 2020 will have a color(s) of its own.
According to London based color forecasting service, WGSN, the next year will make popular a fresh shade of green that mingles technology with the outdoors. ‘Neo Mint’ is predicted to be a hit in interior design after having worked its magic in the fashion industry this year.
Like every other year in the past, the year 2020 will see more than one popular color and stunning shades like Mellow Yellow and Navy could be revived.
According to Pinterest’s trend reports, a 200% increase in the term ‘mindfulness’ was seen in décor related searches in the last year. It doesn’t take a wizard to understand why. Rapid urbanization has made our lives faster than ever, making it harder to reflect on our lives in our downtime. To combat this problem, more people are incorporating mindfulness in interior design.
In addition to this, most of us have started focusing on mental well-being through lifestyle practices like yoga and minimalism which support the idea of mindful interiors. Taking all this into consideration, we might see mindful décor become a trend in the coming years.
Advancements in communication technology have made remote-working jobs a feasible option for many. This trend has designers excited about developing furniture for home offices of all sizes.
A growing community of freelancers and entrepreneurs are contributing to this trend by operating valuable businesses that offer professional services from their residences. This start-up culture is what makes us believe that the ‘home office’ trend is here to stay and 2020 will surprise us with some inspirational home office designs.
