We’ve been fully immersing ourselves into the world of interior design while we’ve been working in collaboration with Taste of Design to promote their 2020 luxury interior design roadshow. From trend forecasters to Instagram influencers, we’ve been searching high and low to find what are set to be the top interior design trends of 2020. Here’s what we found:
1. Neutral colours
The Nordic aesthetic is here to stay, now with warmer neutral tones replacing cool greys to create calm, inviting spaces in our homes.
Floral prints, especially floral wallpaper, will be a key trend to look out for this year. However, traditional florals are replaced with more modern patterns with vibrant colours and different sizes of flowers.
The ‘Factory’ trend sees a return to the principles of the Bauhaus movement that form follows function. Inspired by factories and machines, utilitarian materials such as granite, stone, cork and painted metal will be popular. Other key features of this trend include rough textures and slightly worn and greyed off colours – think earthy shades of pink and olive matched with navys and muted yellows.
4. All black everything
From walls to furniture and even sinks, 2020 is the year for black interiors to achieve a luxurious look.
Influenced by sustainability and creating products for longevity, ‘clarity’ is set to be a big trend for 2020. Materials are selected for their visual purity, such as aluminium, glass, stone, paper, while the colour palette includes clean whites, soft gentle neutrals (think yellows, greys and oyster) and fresh clean blues.
6. Classic Blue
Pantone has announced its colour of the year for 2020 as Classic Blue, describing it as “a timeless and enduring blue hue that is elegant in its simplicity.”
2020 will see a trend towards layering different textures in interiors. This is ideal for neutral colour palettes as it can create variety without having to use lots of colours.
With Tokyo Olympics coming this summer, expect interiors inspired by Japanese traditions. The ‘Satori’ colour palette will feature muted blues, pinks, greens and greys against pops of Koi Red and dark indigos. Natural, sustainable materials are a must for this trend.
9. Tranquil Dawn
Dulux’s Colour of the Year 2020 is Tranquil Dawn, a soft, neutral green. This versatile shade is inspired by the morning sky and will bring calm to any room.
Inspired by romance, the ‘Reverie’ trend sees materials chosen for their appearance first and foremost. Reflective surfaces such as mother of pearl and gold or silver lustres on wood will add a touch of luxury when placed with a soft colour palette of lilacs and pale yellows.
