A new year means a fresh start not just for burning off all of those holiday calories, but it’s also the perfect time to revamp your home.
Neutral colors will be in once again this upcoming year. What can we say? Neutrals come in pretty classic and serene shades, and most importantly, they’re not super busy. If you’re thinking, “Big whoop! Neutrals are so plain,” then you’re wrong for several reasons. Neutral colors are whites with cool or warm undertones. We’re primarily looking at shades of gray and beige. Our prediction for 2020 sees warm neutrals making their way in, while cool neutrals fade into the background. Don’t underestimate the power of neutral decor either. It’ll make an excellent choice for your walls, but they’re also great options for furniture including sofas and bedding.
Velvet may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s going to be steaming hot and trendy in 2020. It’s the perfect blend of luxury and comfort. When most people think of velvet, they’re often thinking about the old red velvet upholstery of yesteryear. This year and into the next, interior design firms are taking a deep dive into velvet design options, particularly for sofas. And, our color options are wider than ever. We’re talking vibrant blues, pinks, burnt orange and shades of taupe. The possibilities for velvet furniture in 2020 are endless.
Black and white are the beginning and end of the color spectrum. They literally couldn’t be a starker contrast between colors., but the clash between light and dark is a gift from the interior design gods. There are millions of ways to incorporate this yin and yang trend into your home decor. Black chairs and sofas, white throw pillows, chevron print, black and white marble–there are so many textiles and pattern variations that marry these two colors.
Geometric patterns have been on an upward trend for years now, so much so that you can find geometric patterned anything, anywhere. The only problem with geometric patterns being so popular is that it’s on everything–cups, notebooks, wallpaper, couches, bedding, art, floors, light fixtures, and other decor. It’s so easy to overdo it, but don’t expect geometric designs to be going away anytime soon. That’s why 2020 is all about geometric balance. You can still make a statement with bold and vibrant geometric patterns. Stick with more classic or contemporary patterns with chairs and throws. Pick an area of your home where you want the geometric pattern to make a bold statement. How about geometric bathroom floor tiles, or a thin-lined geometric wallpaper with a not so busy pattern?
Green is such a fresh color, and as we embrace earth tones and sustainable home accessories, it only makes sense to incorporate splashes of green throughout your home. Here’s how to make it happen in 2020. True green plants add the perfect pop of color to a neutral-colored room. 2018 and 2019 saw a huge rise in the incorporation of succulents. While succulents may wane in popularity in 2020, Collected Interior Design firm knows that green is still going to be an important color next year. You can invest in rubber plants, money plants, or snake plants to incorporate some seriously rich greenery. The best thing about these plants is that they’re not super high maintenance. If you want to get in tune with green, you can try leaf-patterned bedding, wallpaper, paintings, or even splashes of solid green decor throughout your home.
Our final trend takes a look at earth tones. The colors and textures mimic that of wood, metals, and foliage found in nature’s most basic elements that are regularly used in the making of furniture and home accessories. Earth tones like rich forest greens, taupe, and clay colors create a natural look that creates a zen-like environment made for meditation and unwinding after a long day.
