Trends in interior design constantly evolve; however, cherished classics from previous years never go out of style (think vintage or boho-chic). With the global pandemic necessitating spending more time at home, the design trends that have emerged mimic just what we were longing for, comfort. Here are some of the most prominent trends of 2020 to incorporate into your new home, from outdoor color schemes to timely nostalgic pieces.
The color scheme, tone, and texture in a home tell the homeowner’s story and personality. In 2020, interior designers note a rise in the use of olive greens, yellow ochre, and burnt orange shades that mirror the beautiful colors of nature. This soothing palette is versatile, classic, and timeless.
Incorporating plants and natural pieces into the home has significantly risen over the past year. The addition of botanicals in a home’s decor has proven to dramatically reduce stress, balance blood pressure, and level heart rates. The use of greens also lends personality and interest to the space. Décor options can range from physical plants, floral prints, or other natural design elements to brighten the mood and connect with nature.
Outdoor Living Spaces
The trend toward outdoor living is nothing new. However, 2020 has seen a dramatic increase in homeowners expanding their living space outside the home to create more room to relax and unwind. The demand to marry indoor living spaces with the outdoors is at an all-time high. Today’s outdoor kitchens, all-season living spaces, porches, and patios include stylish furnishings, lighting, and décor that mimic high-end appointments of indoor living spaces. There are many outdoor furniture styles and finishes to choose from; concrete, resin, wood, rattan, and wicker are a few of the popular options. Rattan and wicker furniture have made a comeback in 2020 and are now considered an excellent balance of modern and traditional décor and suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
With all the changes 2020 has brought, one of the most noticeable changes of the year is the addition of the home office. Whether office space is found by repurposing an existing room or redecorating a pre-existing at-home study, luxury, organization, and comfort is the order of the day. Adding elements such as an attractive bookcase, sleek desk, stylish seating, and versatile lighting will help raise productivity while providing a stunning room at the end of the workday.
