Home Design Trends to Watch in 2020

With 2019 coming to an end, we are met with the excitement of a new year and in the interior design world, met with a fresh perspective on home design trends. As we approach the new year, it’s time to fawn over home design projections for 2020 and perhaps get your house up to speed with the latest and greatest. Learning how to incorporate these trends into your home’s design might help you realize it can be easier than you think to keep up with the Joneses. 


Milan Design Week 2019 made predictions for what homeowners and decorators can expect in 2020. The designers expect 2020 to be centered around wellbeing, comfort, and sustainability. A few specific elements were noted, including the incorporation of more marble into home design. With its striking veins and endless pattern choices, you can choose either a small vase or a whole countertop to add impact and timelessness to your interior.


House Beautiful predicts muted pink, baby blue, and neo-mint green as on-trend accent colors for furniture and decor. Find the right shade that complements your existing pieces or paint colors in rooms you want to revamp. Using these accent hues will make your space feel fresh and new without replacing an entire selection of home decor. The design website also suggests to easily try out a new color scheme by draping a similar colored throw or pashmina on furniture in the room to see how your new tones would work before committing. The leading paint company, Behr, also announced their 2020 Color of the Year as a light, yellowish green.


Speaking of green, Milan Design Week also expects that 2020 will bring the outdoors into your home with natural prints and pieces incorporated into your design plans. Beyond placing plants in pots or vases, they can also be used in decorative elements such as paintings, wallpaper, printed fabrics, and more. A framed canvas of palm trees, hanging wall planters, or small succulents placed as table settings are all ways to create a fresh and light environment inside the home.


Mixing textures, patterns and metals is another trend on sight for the new year. Combining different textures and finishes will bring more dimension to your home design space. This anything-goes aesthetic means you don’t have to worry about having brass door handles and a copper light fixture together in one room. Mixing animal prints with florals or bold color blocks with stripes will create an eclectic vibe in your interior design.


If you are thinking about redecorating for 2020, it’s the perfect time to plan ahead and allow a few weeks for your ideas to crystalize before jumping in all at once. Use these ideas to spark your creativity into the new year and kick your 2020 off with new details in your home’s aesthetic.
