January is always a good time to reflect on the year just gone, and to start focusing on the New Year ahead. What better time to plan in an early Spring clean too, and redecorate your house?
Although some of the signature interior design trends from last year, including all-white kitchens and the Nordic vibes are still going to stay with us throughout 2020, there are a few other trends which will start featuring.
Mixing Old With New
Sustainability and upcycling were big trends that started to appear towards the end of 2019, and it seems they are here to stay. Design your home by mixing and matching old and new products. Souvenirs are also a great way to remind you of holidays or trips that you have been on, adding to the story that the room tells.
Dark Painted Doors
Add a statement to your home by painting an interior door in a dark colour. Pair this with matching furniture to really showcase your personal style and bring the colour to life. Why not have a browse through our range of tissue box covers to find the perfect colour for your new interior too. Forget about white matching doors, 2020 is the year to step out of your comfort zone!
Abstract Colour Schemes
Whilst the Nordic greys and the blush pinks of last year start to fade from the spotlight, abstract colours and themes are the way to go. Make a statement with abstract cushions, rugs and wallpaper designs. Bold geometrics are also a great way to highlight your personality.
Add a touch of elegance to your home with some glamorous pieces. We are talking big, statement pieces of furniture that have a 1920s vibe going on. When it comes to colours, think rich tones such as royal blues, golds and rose. By adding some metallic accessories your home will ooze extravagance.
If you aren’t quite brave enough to jump straight in with the abstract or bold colours, soft tropics are on trend for 2020. Bring a little nature indoors with palm prints and soft earthy colours. Our stunning palm leaf waste paper bin would be the perfect accompaniment, leaving your room feeling tropical.
Don’t forget with this tropics trend that you should also add some plants to your home too. Not only do they reduce levels of carbon dioxide, but they increase levels of oxygen in the air. Vertical gardens are ideal if you are a bit short of space in your home.
The biggest interior design trend that will emerge throughout 2020 is biophilia. This is the concept of bringing together human design with nature, in a way that looks natural. Linking back to sustainability, many biophilia designs are made from recycled wood and other natural products. For colour schemes, think natural, earthy tones - if you can include metals, woods and stones, you are on the right track.
