New year, new interior design! As we ring in the New Year (and new decade!), let’s take a look at the interior design trends that are sure to take the home decor world by storm. From the annual Pantone Color of the Year to fun new textures and lighting styles, we’re excited to see what 2020 brings for our homes.
It would be impossible to list all of the 2020 interior design trend predictions that the year has in store, but here are some of the highlights to consider when ramping up your space in 2020:
Pantone Color of the Year: Classic Blue
Every year, Pantone names a Color of the Year. They determine this color through thoughtful consideration and trend analysis. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2020 is Classic Blue, an “endearing blue hue” that “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” Classic Blue also instills calm, confidence, and connection which many of us are craving in a time of ever changing trends, technology, and a new decade.
According to Pantone, the color is “suggestive of the sky at dusk” and can be incorporated into many areas of your home. From adding new accent pillows and throw rugs to changing out your bedding or adding new wall art, the best thing about Classic Blue is that it can be applied everywhere in your home tastefully.
Bouclé (pronounced boo-clay) is a texture made out of a series of looped pieces of yarn. In fact, the name comes from the French word for “to curl.” This texture rose to fame when fashion designer Coco Chanel debuted her bouclé jacket.
But, bouclé can be used in interior design as well and in 2020, texture is everything. Varying textures can give an otherwise flat room life and add hints of cozy, homey elements. Keep your eye out for bouclé throws and blankets. You may even notice it adorning sofas, footstools, and recliners this year.
Coordinated Color Palettes
This year, expect to see more and more coordinated color palettes, even from interior design newbies. You don’t have to be a professional to tie together the perfect living room color palette. Understanding the color wheel, the psychology behind certain colors, and how to warm up or cool down your tones will help you rock a new color palette in 2020. Gone are the days of throwing together whatever you can find in the clearance aisle at your local interior design store. Make it your goal in the new year to create a color palette made for you.
In addition to including textures in your 2020 interior design, consider including luxurious fabrics like suede, leather, and velvet. These decadent fabrics spruce up a room and even if you’re not planning a living room makeover, they can glam up any space. From velvet couches to suede rugs, these fabric upgrades will help you ring in the New Year in style.
If you’ve been dreaming of mixing up your lighting, 2020 is your year. Everything from natural chandeliers with wooden beads to clean, geometric shapes will dominate the lighting industry. If you want to try playing around with this 2020 interior design trend, start by choosing some new lamps you can add to your bedrooms. Then, if you really want to step it up, switch out your overhead lights for some trendy options.
The New Year is the perfect time to evaluate your interior design and make simple changes to ring in 2020. From switching up textures and fabrics to creating your own color palette, make it your resolution to do one or two interior design changes that you’re passionate about.
