Forget new year, new me – it’s all about new year, new home decorating! We’ve looked into all the super gorge trends headed our way in 2020 and picked our five faves to help you get a head start – Best. Resolution. Ever.
1. Au naturel, baby
Upcycle your heart out; sustainability and eco-consciousness are here to stay!
You may remember from our mid-2019 style check-in that eco-conscious interior design was a bit of a hit – well biophilia is still gonna be HUGE in 2020. This style is all about bringing the outdoors indoors – think organic, think recycled, and think sustainability. Timber, stone, and plenty of (real) plants will give you exactly the vibe you want with this one.
2. Earth-Inspired Colour Palettes
You’re going to want to get your colours on fleek to go along with those natural materials – we are ALL about earthy tones in 2020.
Bring a bit of calm to your digs by pulling colour elements from nature. Don’t feel limited by shades of brown or red – while clay, rust, and taupe can make beautiful earthy bases, feel free to call on the spirits of the forest and ocean to really make the most of this terra-fic trend.
3. Feature Walls, With a Twist
Forget boring block colour feature walls – wallpaper and murals are taking OFF! (Again)
Art deco takes on a whole new meaning with this emerging trend; whether you go for large scale art pieces, murals, or eye-catching wallpapers, you’ll let the walls do all the talking when paired with demure furniture and accessories. Our favourite? Floral is back in a BIG way – vibrant coloured flowers with plenty of contrast to make your walls pop (much like in our Hendrix display home in Burns Beach).
4. Don’t Forget Your Alfresco!
2020 is all about making your alfresco an extension of your home, and that means taking the indoors out!
You may have noticed that a lot of the upcoming trends have to do with the outdoors – so you’d be cray not to focus on your outdoor entertaining area! Bringing some of the softness & comfort of home (cushions, throws, and even rugs) into the space can make your alfresco somewhere you want to be all-year-round (not just when the squad’s over). Sculptural fire pits are HOT (sorry) right now too, and the best way to make your alfresco usable no matter what the season. You know, we’re currently running a rad landscape package that’s sure to make your pals green with envy (you can even get that fire pit)!
5. Pantone Have Spoken!
Each year, global colour communication giant Pantone scour the world looking for new colour influences. They’ve announced their 2020 Colour of the Year, and we are HERE FOR IT.
Oh, Classic Blue – you are gorge. Evoking huge dusk sky vibes, this blue is reflective, peaceful, and calming, which makes it a perfect colour to incorporate into your home in 2020. Take it from the experts!
