Let’s start with color. Although the Pantone color of the year, Classic Blue, embraces cool tones, there is another pattern emerging. Embracing earth tones is one of the interior design color trends in 2020. Olive green, yellow ochre, and burnt orange are shades that not only bring warmth but also a connection to the great outdoors.
Furniture and accessories the mimic natural elements of wood, plants, and metals offer an opportunity to create a calming environment much like being outside. For many of us spending a lot of time indoors, this is a welcome feeling. This doesn’t mean you need to go neutral or too safe! Bold can happen in the form of black doors or a chocolate brown velvet sofa. Incorporating these tones can be creative and offer a uniquely grounded look.
This interior design trend is a distinct throwback. It’s the reemergence of curvy shapes. Inspired by the 60s and 70s, rounded furniture makes it’s way back but with a modern twist. Line and curve mesh to highlight the beauty of form. In furniture, we are seeing upholstered pieces like sofas, chaises, and benches designed with undulation and asymmetry as guidelines.
Such free-form designs will reach their peak this year giving a nod to organic form. With a need more than ever to invite the tranquil energy of nature into our homes, this makes sense. Design emulating waves, circles, and curves offer a softness we crave.
With households experiencing remote working and learning at home, multifunctional spaces have become one of the most relevant interior design trends 2020 has seen. Designs of homes have taken to open-plans for a while now making the existence of multifunctional rooms possible.
A doubling up of space and functionality is most commonly seen in the kitchen and dining room areas. Kitchens with islands can easily become both a dining table and a workstation. In this way, people are able to cook, eat, socialize and work all at the same time. Breakfast nooks and kitchen counters are especially good for small spaces or smaller home floorplans. These areas eliminate the need for a whole separate room since it cuts out the need for another whole separate room.
Another trending combination is playrooms with other areas of the home, particularly the child’s bedroom. With some savvy spatial layouts, kids can play and sleep in a space that is safe and allows other rooms of the house to be used.
